Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I reviewed her project and discussed how she would present it to the class. We covered absolute value and did some additional practice with basic operations of integers. We then reviewed worksheets from class and discussed how to understand, set up, visually represent, and solve word problems involving positive and negative numbers."
"Yesterday I met with the student and reviewed his math chapter because he has a math test today. I brought materials and used his homework book to review equivalent fractions, ordering fractions and basic fraction facts."
"The student has been answering free response questions in class and doing very well on them (getting 8/9 and 9/9). Yesterday we covered a few example problems from an old AP exam, and she knew how to answer a majority of the questions very well. She will be taking a practice AP test throughout next week, and the only thing she needs to review is the memorization of trigonometric derivatives."
"The student has begun the integration by parts portion of calculus. This is a difficult concept and relies heavily on experience to develop a good eye to make the best u-substitutions. So, together we covered a number of integration problems of increasing level of difficulty. I allowed the student to choose her own substitutions and then discussed with her my own approach and why."
"The student and I reviewed definite integrals. We discussed substitution by finding the deriv in the integral. I focused on simplifying correctly and choosing the correct values of trigonometry fxns. Last, we calculated area based on sample fxns that are even or odd."
"The student is doing well in calculus, and currently his class is covering area. The student understands the concepts. Today, we reviewed his homework, and he had difficulty with a triangle problem where he had to find the area using integration. He couldn't quite grasp that two integrals had to be done. I was able to give him an overview of the concept, but we will go over it again next session to ensure he has retained it. Overall great session."
