Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on a test review for solving and arranging equations. She works very hard and continually has high expectations. She is becoming more organized with her problems. She did not require any extra math work at this time since we got her a little bit ahead with domain and range. She made a 96 on her last quiz and continually does well in her coursework. She works very hard and puts a conscious effort into practicing the material. "
"The student and I worked on a test review that included polar coordinates and how to translate back and forth from rectangular coordinates. We also worked on complex numbers and how to translate back and forth between rectangular to polar coordinates as well. She seemed to understand the concepts as I went over several examples of each type of problem. After we were done, I gave her some tips on formulas to memorize as well as tips on each type of problem to solve them quicker."
"The student and I worked on a variety of topics on a worksheet provided by the student. We worked on converting fractions to decimals (without the use of a calculator) and spent a long time on LCM and GCF related questions. He learned very quickly and was usually able to perform the problems himself after only a single explanation."
"The student and I worked on addition and subtraction with scientific notation. She was struggling a bit because she was overgeneralizing, so I went over a couple examples to show why that doesn't work, even though it feels like it should. Once she matched the 10^n terms for both numbers, it was easy for her. As long as she practices so she remembers that trick, it should be fine. She and I also spent a little time going over experimental design."
"The student and I worked on anagrams, spot the difference puzzles, and a puzzle that incorporated trivia as well as mathematical operations. Overall, he did very well on the puzzles that tested attention to detail. He made a few mistakes with subtraction, but typically corrected himself shortly after. For the session in two weeks, I found some easier level crosswords we can possibly work on to help memory recall."
"The student and I worked on Business applications of calculus, including marginal costs, profits and revenues. He and I worked on his online homework assignment. He had some grasp of what he was doing, but had trouble understanding what the question was asking him to do. I explained what it was asking for, and it made more sense to him. He has an exam coming up. He wants to try to do the work for the remainder of the chapter on his own without a tutor. If he has any difficulty, he is going to email me so that we can schedule a session."
