Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed parallel and perpendicular lines (e.g. proof for parallelogram), regression lines and forecasting of a given set of data, collinear points and their relationship with slopes. We also worked on lines that pass through a given point and are parallel/perpendicular to another line, x- and y- intercepts of line equations, intersections of two linear equations, and solving inequalities with number line graphs to indicate the solutions. The student was somewhat engaged during the session, as she was often distracted with events around her. I would recommend some privacy is provided to her in future sessions for improved focus."
"We reviewed parametric equations and inverse functions for his quiz this week. He should be in really good shape for the quiz - he understands the material well. He should double check with his teacher as to what should be on it and review if he feels it is necessary."
"We reviewed section material on change in number, slope, and the distance formula. From there, we worked through the sections problem set to review for an upcoming math quiz. The student has shown great improvement in rate problems, which have been an issue for him in the past. He has also shown improvement in showing his work, as going forward I believe improvement in this will help further boost his grades on tests and quizzes and help him learn new concepts easily."
"We reviewed some problems concerning limits, including a particularly difficult problem that posed an "infinity minus infinity" situation. Eventually the student got through it, however, and we wrapped things up with an explanation of the intermediate value theorem and its applications in finding the solutions to equations."
"We reviewed the graphing of Functions y=f(x), work through a number of practice problems, we discussed x-intercept and y-intercepts, reviewed discontinuous functions , as well f g(x) and f g(0) composite functions."
"We reviewed the homework I left the student. After answering his questions and making sure he understood the approach I showed him, I made sure he applied the knowledge to factor the polynomials using remarkable identities. Then, we moved to his homework on piecewise-defined functions. I left him with additional practice on remarkable identities just to consolidate the progress he showed today."
