Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over derivatives using power rule. I emphasized rewriting fractions into exponents to avoid making easy mistakes."
"We went over the student's last statistics test (analyzed what she got wrong and why), and then we went over some chemistry nomenclature."
"We covered negative numbers, fraction operations, and variable equations. Mainly, I used this session to figure out the student's strengths and weaknesses."
"We've continued to work on the logarithmic and trigonometric portions of precalculus. The student's worked to memorize the unit circle. We have begun to explore techniques to better use his calculator in order to address problems he's struggling with. This may be useful depending on whether his teacher allows him to use the calculator."
"Today we worked on graphing trig functions. The student did not struggle with the material and had a positive attitude throughout the session. I included strategies to convey these concepts."
"I taught the student the law of sines and the law of cosines, with examples in each, which he understood very well. He had some trouble telling the "ambiguous case" of Side-Side-Angle, and I encouraged him to reread that example in the textbook. In biology, we reviewed Mendelian genetics and proportions of traits in offspring. I also discussed pedigrees, human genetics, genetic diseases, and microarrays."
