Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"He and I covered the review for his test and some required homework exercises. He was struggling the most with piece-wise functions and understanding forms of particular functions he was required to find. Overall, his attitude was very diligent and efficient towards getting through the material necessary to do well on his exam tomorrow. We went over various strategies to do the required computations. He is going over more of the review material before we meet again tomorrow. I am excited get the opportunity to mentor him in this endeavor and can't wait to see his progress in his class!"
"He and I reviewed for his exam. We went over finding vertex form of a parabola by completing the square, using synthetic division to find zeroes and to divide to find the remainder, working with asymptotes, equations and their graphs, and forming equations given the zeroes."
"He and I reviewed the concepts of functions and relations. We also covered how to complete the square, leading to finding the equation of a circle in center radius form. We also went over the standard form of the equation of a circle. He is doing very well with his comprehension of these topics."
"He and I spent our second session covering a wide range of specific topics pertaining to logarithmic and exponential functions. The topics we covered included solving equations using the functions, as well as graphing them. Once again, he had a very firm understanding of all of the material that we covered. He does have a quiz this week, though, so we went over all of the fundamentals of what he is doing, as well as specific examples that might show up on his quiz."
"He and I worked on his 3.2 section of work. The homework covered graphing logarithmic functions and their inverse. We covered transformations of log graphs and their domain and range along with their end behavior. We also worked on how to evaluate logarithms without a calculator."
"He and I worked on rate and concentration word problems. I was teaching and reviewing with him how to formulate problems, such as when one person works at one rate and another at another rate, how fast they work together or how much water evaporates from a saline solution that starts at one concentration of salinity and is eventually another concentration, etc.."
