Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed the student's homework due Friday and she did all the problems step by step. She had a test Thursday so we reviewed her content for that test. Her goal was to be able to solve for a variable in one and two step equations. She did this very well going backwards with PEMDAS to solve for her x. I gave her some tricky problems to solve and we worked through those step by step. She seemed very confident and knew her material for the exam. We went back and did a lot of basic skills such as dividing fractions and being able to do mental math. She was very successful with this."
"The student and I went over an AP practice test together today; she had done better than she expected on the calculator portion, but we had a lot to go over on the non-calculator portion of the test. She seemed to understand my explanations fairly quickly, reaching her own correct solutions along the way as well."
"This entire week the student has had a substitute. Once again, I came with a plethora of worksheets to test his comprehension on past and present concepts that should be mastered. I gave him 25 review problems for homework over the weekend."
"We covered angle measures of triangles and parallel lines cut by a transversal. The student understood well. He worked to finish all of his homework. He only needed help on a few small details."
"Today the student and I covered differentiation rules, trig differentiation, particle motion and harmonic motion all in prep for her test tomorrow. She really has a firm grasp on the material. We even talked about drawing a number line to better visualize when the acceleration and velocity of a particle changes to best determine the motion of the particle. The session went really well and I am confident in her and I am sure she will do well tomorrow."
"We worked with identifying polynomial functions (degree, leading coefficient, type, etc.). We also worked on multiplying binomials and polynomials. The student had some trouble at first keeping track of units and exponents during larger multiplication questions but we practiced these specifically to get better at it."
