Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on her homework from chapters 6 and 7 today. That included molarity, reaction rate, colligative property, and equilibrium calculations. We'll get together again next week to begin studying for her exam."
"Today the student and I went over Least Common Multiple and Greatest Common Factor. We also went over her multiplication tables because her confusion with those tables furthers her difficulty with LCM and GCF. I think that if she practices her multiplication more and becomes more comfortable with multiplying quickly, solving LCM and GCF will be less difficult and take less time."
"The student and I created a meeting schedule and study plan for our summer sessions. We discussed her perceived weaknesses, which seem to be backed up by her most recent ACT test score. We also discussed the differences between the ACT and the SAT, and the resulting differences in general test strategies."
"The student and I worked on 6.3 which consisted of composite functions and operations on functions. We worked on various topics that came up; multiplying bases by adding exponents, dividing bases by subtracting exponents, adding/subtracting rational expressions, distributing functions, etc. By the end of the lesson, she was much more fluid in working with composite functions."
"The student and I worked on a titration review. We covered concepts of what would be the pH of a solution depending on if different salts were added to a solution (that would correspond to strong/weak acids/bases). We also solved titration problems where we had to determine the pH of a solution after a certain concentration of an acid/base was titrated with a concentration of acid/base. The student was going to practice more titration problems before the test as I recommended."
