Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Student A: We worked on Spanish today, finishing up his homework on numbers before spending the rest of the time reviewing vocabulary for his retest on Thursday. Student B: We went over alternate types of linear equations in algebra 2, particularly piecewise and step functions. she had no problems graphing them and reported the assignment being extremely easy for her!"
"The client wanted help finding data from a news story that could be used for an assignment where she had to interpret the data, including a visualization such as a chart of graph, and then transform it into something new and include a critique of strengths and weaknesses."
"The concept we covered was partial fractions. The student needed help in converting a function like 2/(x*(x^2-6x+9) into a sum of its partial fractions like A/x + B/(x-3) + C/(x-3)^2. This would make it simple to integrate this function. We worked on this. The student was engaged. I simply helped the student break up this function into the sum of its partial fractions. Then, I gave the student a student a strategy in how to some for the unknowns, i.e., A, B, and C. The student seemed to get it at the end of our session."
"The concepts covered during our last sessions included a review of decimals, fractions, and factors. The student is a hard worker and learns fast when we go over strategies on how to do the concepts covered in class."
"The concepts covered included mostly decision analysis and running through problems from homework. The student struggled most with regret analysis/approach and the decision tree we worked on towards the end which used expected monetary value. The student's attitude was great and welcoming, and we were able to connect on interests and agreements with problem solving. We talked about me making some practice questions for an upcoming midterm from other material we did not go over."
"The concepts covered were how to solve expressions and equations for the simplest form. The student was struggling with the order of operations and the negative and positive numbers in an expression. She was a fast learner. She understood the material right after I gave my explanation. I included the strategies of solving the expression or equation step by step using the correct order. I explained how to solve these equations and expressions using negative and positive numbers. I did not leave her with extra practice, but I gave her a lot of practice questions to solve within the lesson and she answered them correctly. I did not see any scores to note progress since this was our first session. Tomorrow is her test. I am not concerned for her. I feel very confident she will do well tomorrow. She is a smart girl with a positive attitude who really understood all the concepts reviewed today."
