Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Student 1 worked on math, fractions, and decimals. (2 hours) Student 2 also worked on decimals. (.5 hour)"
"The student practiced using the review materials assigned by her professor. I explained some forms and expressions typical for the different tests for convergence/divergence. She is getting better with determining which test to use, and she still needs to memorize what the test conditions and conclusions are for each test. I also think she will benefit from reviewing the algebraic properties for things such as exponents and reducing fractions."
"This session we went over some more Gauss Jordan problems with an emphasis on Matrix inversion using the elementary steps to achieve the answer. She was ready to learn and review her material and was able to appreciate the material once learned."
"The student has been having a real hard time with math both multiplication and division. He has also been introduced to larger numbers to work with (i.e. thousands & millions) it seems like he is stressing himself out because the numbers are larger. I went over everything with him (large numbered division and multiplication) and he seems to be getting his feet wet with it. He is slowly but surely improving. He is definitely more receptive as we have more lessons. As always a pleasure to work with him."
"We went over graphing of linear functions, calculation of slope and intercepts, collecting data, and plotting and finding intersection points of two lines. The student had some prior knowledge of the subject. At the end of the session, I showed him how to plot a graph on a calculator. I brought a force meter just as I promised. He got to use it to generate a graph of weight and friction. I showed him how it works and let him take the lead. It was a good exercise because he got to use a math concept in physics."
"It is a pleasure working with this student. He is motivated, organized, and cares about his work. We worked on a review packet covering chapters 1 and 2. I helped him with multiplication of two digits times two digits. He quickly understands instruction. I am impressed with his work habits. We also worked with graphing points on a coordinate plane. I have met with him twice now and I know that he is a responsible young man."
