Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During this session we continued working on problems in the textbook related to improper integrals. This session went well. The student definitely knows the materials."
"The student had some difficulty with topics concerning parametric equations, including converting between parametric and Cartesian equations, second derivatives, and surface areas of solids of revolution; she had a problem set and some book problems that she wanted to look over, particularly in preparation for a quiz this coming Tuesday. She said that after the session, she understood the topics much better, and she seemed to have more confidence in her understanding of parametric equations."
"The student and I reviewed some of the work she missed in class and also were able to complete some of her homework. She felt more confident with the material she is learning."
"We covered trig functions SOHCAHTOA, how to find lengths of right triangle when knowing one other angle and length of a side. We also went through a case problem involving exponential function. I think the student needs more practice and repetition to become more familiar and confident with studying the problems, as well as with use of the scientific calculator. I have referred her to a useful online channel, and also encouraged her to write out and say general forms of equations and formulas so she will remember them better."
"The student had homework involving the concept of inequalities. She had to determine which number is a solution for given inequalities. Before checking her homework, we reviewed the lesson on inequalities to see how much she understood from the lesson. First I explained the definition and the symbols involved in the concept. Then I explained 2 examples from her textbook. After, we worked together on the guided practice page from her book. She then had to complete the independent practice page from her textbook. She struggled with the problems involving the less than and equal symbol. I explained the steps in solving that problem, and guided her through one problem. She was able to complete the rest of the problems independently and realized that she had some errors on the homework. So before I checked it, she was able to make her corrections."
"Yesterday, the student worked on her math, history, and English homework. In math, we covered dividing with decimals, using mental math to determine the quotient, and we solved multi-step word problems. For history, we worked on her crossword puzzle, that reviewed chapters 1-9. For English, we reviewed direct and indirect objects, objects of the preposition, and the sentence subject."
