Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I reviewed for his quarter exam on arithmetic and geometric sequences and series, and explicit and recursive rules for both. Also, we reviewed logs and exponential functions He felt comfortable with the material and has seen a steady increase in his grades this quarter. He received his highest grade on his last unit test."
"Today we reviewed a little bit of factorization, which the student retained very well, and we moved on to graphing and linear equations. He's working hard to remember to include negative signs in his calculations, and that will definitely be something we work on more in the future. Overall, however, I am pleased with his progress."
"This session we practiced for an upcoming quiz on evaluating basic trig functions for special right triangles. The student understands the functions, and is working hard to memorize the sides of the 30-60-90 triangle. We moved on to circles and arcs and how to compute arc length and sector area. She did well with this material."
"In this session we worked on two methods for solving definite integrals. I started her on problems from the previous section on indefinite integrals. I modified the problems to include limits of integration. I hope she was able to get in some repeat practice of the few problems we had time for."
"The student and I met today to work through problems from a practice final exam. Overall, she seems to have a solid understanding of the material and just needs a little more practice to gain confidence that she can get the right answer. We will meet again to continue reviewing on Wednesday afternoon."
"We discussed saddle points and volumes of rotational solids, as well as a couple other things. So far I have not seen the student struggle more with any particular question- she understood each question after one explanation. She has a great positive attitude and will do well on the upcoming exam as long as she makes sure to understand and practice each topic. I sent her practice questions to work on and she knows to save the ones hardest for last, which is an important study technique."
