Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"In this evening's session, the student worked on his homework assignment. The assignment included calculating the domain and horizontal and vertical asymptotes for rational polynomial functions. He seemed a little hesitant at first, but with a little extra instruction, he picked it up quickly and gained confidence as the session progressed."
"We covered solving a system of linear equations with substitution. The student had the basics down. He was able to say what he wanted to solve for and why he would solve a particular way."
"Student 1 and I covered as much as we could of her current material for class. We covered both exponential ideas as well as polynomials. For exponential ideas, we covered how to compare like terms once again. For polynomials, we covered how to FOIL, as well as how to look at simple roots. We also talked about planning for future semesters at her school so that she can have a successful high school career. Student 2 and I covered basic Geometry material, where we covered the principles behind angles of two parallel lines crossed by a traversal. This included corresponding angles, supplementary angles, complementary angles, and similar angles. This took us a majority of our time as we reviewed the homework based on these concepts. We also covered a few problems on the ratio of density to mass and volume. Once we had the equation down, it took very little time to review that homework as well. Both students will bring what materials they can and anything they have confusion on."
"We covered rules of exponents and logs for almost the entirety of the session. I went over evaluating exponent equations, understanding radical and exponential notation, and we covered logarithms in the last portion. We went over properties of logarithms and how they function. Overall, the student seemed to understand how both exponents and logarithms worked."
"We went over graphing functions, rules of exponents, logarithms, natural log, graphing functions with restrictions on them, squaring a variable and a number inside a parenthesis. She was learning fast and optimistic."
"Today we reviewed all of the student's summer math packet. Much of it she had completely correct. One topic that was slightly unfamiliar to her was solving various types of inequalities, especially those involving absolute values and fractions. Additionally, we focused on factoring. Her work ethic is great, and she put much effort into all of the problems."
