Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I met with the student today for our second session. The student first completed homework, and then we went through problems from her textbook based on a topic list that she had for what she has covered and what is to come. We will be continuing with regular sessions and continued practice."
"I mostly did an introduction to see where he was at in math and what he was learning. We went over some review problems from a class packet. He has a strong hold on the review material that will set the stage for more difficult problems in pre-calculus. He is able to understand concepts very quickly, so I have no concerns. I will provide him with some more review materials for our next session."
"I went over inequalities, exponential and factorization with him during today's session. He is preparing for an exam on Thursday, so we went over past exams. He was patient and asked questions frequently. I will recommend he continues his session after his exam. He is ready to learn. He and I went over 15 questions, and I used the opportunity to go over each topic."
"I worked with the student on finding polynomial roots and analyzing and sketching their graphs. As well as rational roots theorem and using it with synthetic division to find all roots. He has a test on Thursday."
"In preparation for TSA, we solved several new problems. Couple strategies: in your answer, never go over the scope of the text; do not over assume. Second, do not confuse correlation with the causation, such as in the case of gun owners being more often victims of gun crime."
"In the session we covered specifically graphing exponent functions. We used strategies such as translating it from it's parent function, graphing points on the graph, and identifying specific features about the graph before graphing. She struggled the most with using a few exponent rules and forms but after practicing a few with guidance she was able to catch on. Her exceptional attitude towards her studies resulted in huge strides in her class which have lead to tangible results in her class. She is going to review before the test, and my honest evaluation is that I would be astounded if she did not walk out with a middle A or higher on her test."
