Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked through a study packet for an upcoming test. He will miss the actual test date on Friday, but have a chance to take it Tuesday the following week. We will study again on Monday night prior to the test."
"The student and I worked through her homework, focusing on general strategies for three-variable systems of equations and for converting word problems from English to math. We also went over her previous homework for errors."
"The student and I worked through her homework, which focused on reducing rational expressions by factoring and the use of common denominators. We also studied for her quiz, focusing on methods for factoring. Since she told me she has more trouble with variables than numbers, I wrote some practice problems that used them and worked through them with her. She found that temporarily replacing the variable with a number helped. We also did a little physics, finishing up a worksheet on significant figures."
"The student and I worked through his homework/study guide in an effort to get him ready for his test on Friday. All of the problems continued to be drawn from Geometry concepts, and I was very pleased with his apparent command of the material. He was able to successfully navigate all of the proofs and needed almost no prompting from me. We briefly discussed quadratics; he seems to have a "fear" of these, and I believe they will soon be introduced. I also encouraged him concerning his final test prep on the evening before the test."
"The student and I worked through several complicated factoring problems involving fractions and multiple polynomials. He was feeling pretty intimidated at the start, but by the end of it, he was solving the problems like a pro. I think he got a lot out of our lesson tonight. Once he figured out some of the patterns and methods, he was able to apply them to other similar problems."
"The student and I worked through some Calculus 2 homework problems she was having trouble with. The main topic was finding areas between curves, and towards the end, we also worked through a volume problem using the slicing method. She needs to memorize some trigonometric identities for this class, and we found some materials online for her to study. Another point of confusion involved the rules of exponents, though she quickly grasped it once reminded."
