Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We did extended response practice problems for the AP exam. He did well for the most part. A couple times I had to get him started on the right foot and then he could finish the question no problem."
"Today, we covered how to solve inequalities and reviewed how to find solutions for quadratic equations by factoring and using the zero-product property. We also went over how to use the quadratic formula to solve quadratics that can't be solved by factoring. She practiced a few tricks to determine if the equation cannot be solved by factoring. I showed the student a way to keep track of negative signs, and I will be sending her some practice sheets with answers. To me, tutoring is similar to getting personal training at the gym. The trainer can show techniques, monitor performance, and make recommendations. The student should practice on her own and track her progress on practice problems to get the most out of lessons."
"We spent the entire time reviewing the class in preparation for his exam. We will start our next session reviewing exponents, simplifying exponential expressions, and multiplying and dividing variables with exponents."
"The student had a great session today. He had completed the task list and included all missing assignments. We spent the entire time on math, which he did a great job writing complete and thoughtful explanations about the differences between experiments and observational studies. Once he turns in this assignment, he should be up to date on his math work."
"The main concepts we covered were: graphing trigonometric functions, solving inverse trigonometric functions, Pythagorean identities, and even-odd identities. The student was able to catch on to the concept quickly, which was great!"
"The student and I discussed the techniques and applications of integration and differentiation. Her understanding of the general calculus concepts seem to be improving. She needs more work on determining the volumes of solids created by rotating curves. The student has a positive attitude and strong work ethic."
