Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Worked on simple linear regression problems and also statistics problems from the Quantitative Reasoning section of the GRE. The student noted that his last test grade was his best yet, so we're making progress."
"The student is doing very well. She had 2 exams from our last session where she scored 85 and 90 percent. She is feeling much more confident in class. We went over the questions she got wrong and started reinforcing the new material she is learning now."
"Today the student and I covered several strategies for solving combination problems, probability/ percentage conversions and ratio word problems. He worked very hard and with a great deal of grit to make the most of our session!"
"We reviewed domains and how to figure out the domain for different problems. The student seemed very excited to learn. She was very happy when she got questions right and seems like a bright student."
"Yesterday, the student and I prepared for his test on Friday. We went through his review sheet to make sure he understood all of the concepts. He struggled with simplifying complex fractions with variables, so we spent a significant amount of time practicing those types of problems. Additionally, we reviewed proofs and complex numbers. He seemed confident after we practiced. I feel he will do extremely well on his test on Friday!"
"Today we worked off of the student's review sheet for her upcoming test. In this, we practiced finding the equation of a line based on two points, finding the equation of a perpendicular line going through a certain point, factoring, finding domain, long division and synthetic division of polynomials, and finding the roots of a polynomial function of a higher degree (using the roots test). For finding domain, we established rules for certain types of equations: for a fraction, there are no zeroes in the denominator; for a square root, there are no negatives in the square root. For factoring, we did a few extra problems, and for one of them, she recalled a method that she had learned a few years back, which was very exciting for everyone involved."
