Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We corrected some math work she had done for homework and continued the explanation and practice of systems of equations."
"The student and I went over two upcoming projects in her Spanish class. The first, due tomorrow, is a list of descriptions of the student in the future. We reviewed the ir+a+infinitive future tense construction while going over this project. For the next project, we discussed household items and how to describe them, where they are, and their usage."
"I had my first session with this student today. We worked on SAT reading/writing first. I explained essays strategies to him, and he will prepare information about two-three historical/literary figures for our next session. We spent our second hour working on his geometry homework, as he had a quiz the next day."
"The student and I met for 2 hours to continue prepping for his upcoming econometrics exam at the master's program in Political Science. He has made some great strides in hypothesis testing, interpreting coefficients, and developing an intuition for interpreting linear regression models. We also made some good progress developing an intuition for R2 and its inputs, and began to discuss correlation coefficients. Other topics covered include: std. deviation v. std. error, population parameters, degrees of freedom, and calculating the std. of a beta coefficient. The student should focus on memorizing important equations for the test (t-tests, std. error for beta coefficients, deriving b0 and b1, TSS, ESS, and RSS for R2) and spend some time reading about R2 for our upcoming session on Sunday. He's making good progress, and we will finish up with the GH Theorem and OLS Assumptions on Sunday."
"We went through quadratic equations and solved some problems with two different methods. We went through some of his homework and taught him how to write quadratic equations in vertex form and solved some problems."
"We began by reviewing an essay the student wrote last session comparing the French and Russian Revolutions. Then we spent time going over the major points of the Second World War (Axis and Allied nations, major battles and theaters of the war, the major political leadership, and the advent of atomic warfare and the Cold War). Then we discussed artistic reactions to industrialization in the 19th century."
