Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I reviewed material for an exam that will cover radicals, solving quadratic equations by factoring, completing the square, or quadratic formula. I derived the quadratic formula for him by completing the square for a general quadratic form, and he thought that was interesting. He is pretty well prepared for this exam."
"He and I had a good session. He had his test graded from last week. He did pretty well on the test, and we went over the questions he struggled with. We also identified several questions that he is going to ask his professor about in order to understand better what they were grading for. He is happy with his score, but wants to do better on the next one. We then moved on and started to work through some questions dealing with stereochemistry. "
"We worked on homework that was a review for a quiz the student has. We worked on function behavior such as increasing and decreasing intervals, relative maxima and minima and finding intercepts. We also worked on average rate of change and the difference quotient. She asked some questions that are good for her to know for her quiz."
"Today, we went over ph, Henderson-Hasselbalch, titrations, gasses, and equilibrium problems. The student did well today and seemed like he has been studying well and is making great progress. We will aim for our next session sometime early next week. Until then, I am available by email for any questions he has."
"We focused on reading comprehension, with all literature passages. The student is doing well, and there was a big improvement over last week. We're continuing to focus on using process of elimination to effectively decide between two answers that look equally good at first."
"We looked at physical science diagnostic number 4 today. This diagnostic has a lot of physics in it. Some of the topics included Ohm's law, resistance in parallel and in series, conservation of kinetic, potential and spring potential energy, buoyancy force, density, projectile motion, and kinematics."
