Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today, the student and I worked on Calculus, specifically integration. The student did not struggle with the material and had a positive attitude throughout the session. I included strategies to simplify the material and convey certain concepts. I did not see any scores, and I do not have any concerns. I look forward to our next session."
"Today, the student and I worked on his pre-calculus homework from sections 1.5-1.7. These sections were algebra review and included factoring, inequalities, and algebra word problems. He seemed very comfortable working through these questions. He did make a few small errors, mostly related to signs/negatives. He knows how negatives work in math, but sometimes overlooks the signs when working through problems. He is aware of these small mistakes, and we talked about how he needs to take extra care when dealing with negative signs. Overall, he has a very positive attitude regarding math and was eager to do extra challenging practice problems even after his homework assignment was finished."
"Today, we began with working on limits and determining them using algebraic tricks. We used common denominator and simplifying to solve algebraically. Then, in Physics, we mostly worked on PVA graphs and explaining them mathematically and qualitatively."
"Today, we continued our review of polynomial factoring by doing practice problems and going over problem sets assigned last week. The student still has some issues factoring polynomials where there is a coefficient in front of the x-squared term, so I will be assigning problem sets that are more focused on these types of problems. He needs to work on factoring polynomials the long way before he tries to do it in his head."
"Today, we covered all the concepts going to be on her upcoming quiz, mostly focusing around the basic ideas of functions. The student had questions about terminology, but for the most part understood how to work most things with functions. I created a small review sheet to work through to make sure they understood all the concepts that would likely appear on the quiz."
"Today, we covered mainly root finding, and polynomial division. She had some difficulties with the practice problems but was very receptive and quickly overcame them after some additional explanations and examples. It seems to me that she grasped the material that we covered and should be in good shape for her test tomorrow with some additional practice."
