Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We spent the entire time doing review problems and writing out a study guide for the student's test on Tuesday. I know she is concerned about her grade in this class, so there is a lot of pressure surrounding this test, but she really seems well prepared! She breezed through each practice problem in the chapter, including all the proofs. For each type of problem, we talked through both how to do it and what strategies to use if she doesn't initially know how to get started."
"We spent the session reviewing for an upcoming test. The material included descriptive statistics and graphs used to represent them. The main concern the student had was how to identify/calculate certain descriptives like the quartiles, range, IQR, and outliers. Once I gave him the formulas, he had no further issues with descriptives. We also covered sampling and study design, which included the different methods of sampling and the difference between experiment and observational study. We spent the rest of the session completing study guide questions."
"We split the session between chemistry and physics. In chemistry, we reviewed polyatomic ions and naming/writing formulas for ionic and covalent compounds. She is doing very well with those concepts. In geometry, we went over Sections 5.3 - 5.5, which she didn't need much assistance with."
"We started a review packet for the student's midterm exam and did parts 1-3. Topics included definitions of angle relationships, algebraic postulates, parallel lines cut by a transversal, solving for missing sides and angles, and proving relationships in various geometric problems."
"We started by developing a study guide involving all the definitions and theorems for the first five chapters on the upcoming final. After that, the student worked through a few proofs on triangle singularity to review the use of what we gathered from the text on the study guide."
"We started off the lesson by completing a review of the student's test for the last unit we had finished. The student did great, with only one mistake at the end, which we quickly recognized upon review. The rest of the session was spent on finishing the last unit on permutations, combinations, and probabilities, which was generally manageable, except that we started off inefficiently by plowing through by ourselves without seeking out the necessarily formulas first. But, we soon solved this issue and progressed much more confidently and smoothly through the rest of the assignments."
