Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student had a math worksheet on interpreting graphs and drawing graphs to represent situations. Once his assignment was done we did extra practice and an additional worksheet from his school. The student did a nice job and was interested in the extra examples."
"We went over a homework assignment and went over volumes and areas of integration. The student seemed to understand the material. We completed the entire assignment and got the concept. She seems to be doing very well with the material."
"The student needed this session as a review for his upcoming quiz. We covered logarithmic and exponential properties for his quiz. We went over how to simplify logarithmic expressions and how to rearrange exponential expressions. I also covered with him how to graph these functions through recognizing the base for logarithmic graphs. He also requested review for word problems for exponential growth problems. These included exponential population growth, discreet compound interest, and continuous compound interest."
"We covered transformations of parent functions such as y=x, quadratics, cubics, logarithms, and the graphs of each on a separate piece of paper. We also partially went over test corrections, and the teacher has given many problems that may take students longer than just the given class period to complete."
"We worked on a problem set that depicted distribution problems graphically, identifying distribution mean, standard deviation, and points of interest. We integrated the idea of the confidence interval (CI) and translated summary data into standard normal parameters. We derived cumulative standard normal statistics using the DISPLAY NORMAL command. We tested hypotheses in normally-distributed data and verbalized inferences on data."
"We discussed several skills, so I could get an idea of the what she needed help with. She was very good at adding and subtracting fractions. We talked a little about multiplying and dividing fractions. We discussed ratios, probability, simplifying fractions, and area and perimeter of a square and triangle. She struggled with variables in equations. I think this is new to her, but she seemed to understand. She does have a basic understanding of math principles. She is a bright girl and seemed to pick the concepts up easily. So I feel she will be able to learn the skills needed with some practice."
