Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I went over geometric series and how to analyze them. I gave him a step-by-step guide to solving these with equations, finding unknowns and finding the final sum. He seemed to understand the process well."
"The student and I went over her homework covering exponents. She is comfortable in the setting but gets worried about time. When she takes her times and slows her thinking, she does well. Her understanding of exponents was pretty good."
"The student and I went over her homework during the session and did a little extra practice. The homework involved solving two-step equations and simplifying expressions with multiple steps. She is great at the process and is able to complete the problems with ease, but she is prone to small errors, which cause the answer to be incorrect. This is why we really focus on checking the answer. She has gotten used to this process and is able to recognize her mistakes right away. Overall, this was a great session."
"The student and I went over her homework for the night, which she said she did not understand in class that day. We figured out the math she needed to do, and of course, once she learned it, she was very good at it. Additionally, I'm impressed with her ability to apply bigger theoretical math logic to the math she is doing in class. It seems to come very easily to her. Also, she showed me her poem from last week that we worked on and she did amazingly!"
"The student and I went over her homework on dividing decimals. We solidified her confidence in the concept by doing practice problems, and I showed her different ways she can manipulate the decimal place to make multiplying and dividing easier. She is pretty sure that her next unit will be on shapes, so we started with rectangle and triangle area formulas. We also touched on multiplying fractions to get her ahead of the game."
"The student and I went over her homework on the extreme value theorem; finding the critical points of functions; and identifying if they are minimums, maximums, or not really an extreme. I taught her a little ahead of class, going over how to determine if a function's graph is increasing or decreasing on the interval to the left of each critical point and increasing or decreasing to the right of each critical point. Doing this helps to identify specifically if each critical point coincides with a minimum or maximum. I introduced that the goal in the near future will be to draw a somewhat accurate sketch of a function, the general shape, including the specific important points (the minimums, maximums, and intercepts)."
