Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student got a 90% on her last test and was very excited. She took a pretest on the next chapter, which I told her we can review anytime she needs the assistance. Today we worked on her homework, and she learned both double-digit multiplication and long division tonight. We worked on the steps for the multiplication, which she did well with. The division we used "Does McDonald's Sell Burgers Daily?" to list the steps for division. These will be two skills we will keep working on together since she only practiced 2 problems of each type."
"The student got another perfect score on his last quiz. Today we worked on the homework assignment on partial derivatives - focusing on limits and continuity, first and second partial derivatives, and the tangent planes and differentials. He had done the majority of the assigned problems prior to out session; thus, we first briefly went over the ones he finished. We then focused on the more challenging problems by breaking them down and understanding the process of each step. I commended him on his willingness to understand how to solve the problem and why to chose one method over another rather than just looking for answers. I believe this has resulted with him doing very well on his quizzes."
"The student got her progress report, and her grades were about what we expected. She is doing well in several classes, among them calculus, but can improve in others, like English and physics. We spent some time reviewing particle motion for her calculus class, but she seems very confident in that class. We also practiced drawing force diagrams for her physics class. The student has a good understanding of the material, but I was able to clarify some misconceptions for her. We finished the lesson by looking over some English AP work. We are going to continue to meet once per week and reevaluate if the need arises."
"The student got the gist of the laws of exponent very quickly. We also reviewed radical form and rational form. For chemistry, we reviewed significant figures and scientific notation. She should be able to complete her math homework with very little issue."
"The student had a couple of questions on how to simplify some integrals by combining constants. I explained to him that we use the logarithmic properties to separate quotients within a logarithm. Then we combine the log of a constant with the constant of integration, C. He then worked on some homework problems that involved integration by separating fractions."
"The student had a great session today. We used supplemental materials to go over subtraction facts. She was able to learn two or three more strategies on how to more effectively solve subtraction problems. We ended by going over doubles in order for her to become faster at some of her facts. She is making great progress with her immediate recall of her addition facts! Great session!"
