Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I reviewed finding the slope of the tangent line when given a set of parametric equations. We also reviewed finding the absolute max and min on an interval. He seemed to gain a much better understanding of the material! I will follow-up by sending him some material through email ! He was a pleasure to work with!"
"The student and I reviewed for Chemistry together. She's been struggling with the periodic table trends (atomic nucleus size, electronegativity) and ionic bonding. We covered the basics together, with me helping fill in the blanks for the student in her knowledge. We also talked about the history of the atom, and the experiments that led to our modern atomic model (electron cloud model). We were able to do some practice problems as well. We have one additional tutoring session where we will be able to continue with atomic emissions and light energies."
"The student and I reviewed for her test tomorrow. We covered systems of linear equations, systems of inequalities using elimination and substitution, and systems of equations with three variables. Everything went well. I reviewed each type of problem quickly, and then she walked me through how to solve a few of each type of problem. She was able to do all the problems successfully. We spent the last 30 minutes reviewing a few physics problems, which I walked her through. They were mostly manipulating formulas using only the variables, and this also went well. She said that she understood the material."
"The student and I reviewed for her test tomorrow. We did an hour's worth of proofs, and spent a half hour studying for the first part of her test tomorrow. She was very strong in this. She has come a long way from two weeks ago, and can do some of the easier proofs without help. She still need guidance when the number of steps are above five or six, but can now follow the direction she should be going, and thinks that marking what she is solving for on her test will help her stay organized!"
"The student and I reviewed for her upcoming final. She had several questions and was sometimes confused as to what the first step would be. Once we discussed the options, she was able to do the work and get the correct answer. One word problems were challenging for us, and we got the wrong answer. We had to try another similar problem in order to get comfortable with how to do that kind of problem."
"The student and I reviewed for her upcoming test on exponents and radicals. After reviewing her prior test with her teacher, she realized many of the mistakes were small arithmetic mistakes. She did well on the review and really understood the material."
