Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"This week the student and I worked on linear equations. He appears to understand this very well and as his tutor I'm so glad to see that! His progress remains steady, and I gave him a few practice problems to prepare for his quiz."
"Prepared for an upcoming exam on 1st and 2nd derivative tests for max/min/inflection points. We looked at graphing and then worked on trig equations; the trig solutions were based on the unit circle and not using a calculator."
"We covered L'Hopital's rule in various problems, implicit differentiation, and linear approximations. The student has set of 250 problems to complete."
"The student and I reviewed some topics from last semester in both chemistry and algebra that she struggled with. We then worked on current material, which included mole to mole conversions in chemistry and synthetic division in algebra."
"Talked about L'Hopital's rule for limits and did some problems. Then we talked about area problems and how they relate to the whole of Integral Calculus, and previewed some concepts that will evolve over the remainder of the year."
"The student and I spent most of the session working on her Geometry homework. She did well with identifying how to solve for angles and line segments in triangles using Algebra. We finished by choosing a topic for her History review paper."
"We continued with lines- parallel and perpendicular. She's getting better at identifying the steps necessary to find an answer and, often, realizes when she has made a mistake in a step before I have to notify her."
"We went over his math homework. He needed to watch a video and takes notes on equations with unknown variables. He had a little trouble on the subject but he eventually got going on it."
"We started preparing for her test on Friday. We worked on graphing and factoring. After that, I previewed factoring with a focus on inequalities."
"Today's session covered Activities 5.5-5.8. (perfect squares, factoring polynomials with a positive c value, and factoring polynomials with a negative c value). The student was able to grasp the concepts well."
"We worked on her French Math, which was focused on Pythagorean theorem. Then we worked on some Reading Comprehension review questions to prepare for the assessment test."
"I prepared a review sheet about concepts and example problems. After the student finished this and we discussed his results, we did review exercises in the textbook. I expect he will do very well on the quiz on Friday."
