Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"In this session, we worked on a homework that involved comparing independent and dependent means. In addition to demonstrating how to conduct analyses in SPSS, we interpreted the results identified the key elements of the statistical output. "
"Reviewed the properties of logarithms from Algebra 2 to help in the differentiation of natural logs. The student picked it up very quickly and most likely will not need further help in that area. We also briefly touched on integration and inverse functions, specifically inverse trig functions. He is very sharp and picked up the concepts quickly. I requested he memorize the equations for the derivatives of inverse trigonometric functions after the lesson."
"Reviewed work the student had done with finding greatest common factors and least common multiples. Helped clarify the concept of greatest common factor. Helped him redo some problems where he had not identified the correct least common multiple. Reviewed material for an upcoming science test with him. Encouraged him to work on multiplication facts to help him be able to do math more efficiently and accurately."
"Right off the bat, she is a really excellent student. We went over similar questions that she got wrong on her exam, it does not seem she is struggling, since she was able to solve them without any hitch. For most of the session, we went over logarithms and exponents, but started with series (i.e. the geometric type)."
"She and I continued to practice multiplying fractions, as well as finding the area of composite shapes. She was able to expand her skill set by learning about the area for triangles and semi-circles. Once she felt confident in her ability, she enjoyed completing the problems."
"She and I continued with math activities that strengthened her use of the number line for numbers 1-20. We worked on making combinations of 10 and doubles addition. We are working on her math facts fluency and algebraic thinking with addition. Next week, we will begin to work on subtraction."
