Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I went over the beginning of her final review packet over her cumulative math review. She mentioned to me that she received an 85 on her last graded assignment. I encouraged her to continue asking questions and to continue to work on her review packet so that she may focus on the sections and problems that she is struggling the most with."
"I worked primarily with one of the students on Physics SAT 2 and some of his homework for a math exam. The SAT 2 requires a high volume of equations and strategies. He knows the material well enough and just needs practice on using time effectively. Only through practice exams will he be able to sort out shortcuts and time reducing strategies. His understanding of math is exceptional and we have just been working on ironing the small wrinkles in his comprehension. With my other student, I had her work on a homework assignment for about 1 hour. She displays progress."
"The student has improved drastically in the first week and seems very confident with this difficult part of Algebra 2. She also has shown really great focus a throughout the week."
"Today we finally solved problems on binomial equations, which is done by graphing with factored form and vertex form. The student should be confident with his quizzes tomorrow."
"We covered topics relating to logarithmic functions, mostly expanding and simplifying logarithmic expressions."
"Today we covered conic sections and logarithms. We learned how to write conic sections in standard form and did problems involving real life applications. For conic sections, most of the problems were about pathways of moving objects and shapes of real-life objects. For most of the problems in this topic, I suggested that we draw a sketch in order to understand the problems better. With logarithms, we learned how to solve equations, include condensing expressions, where the student was having the most trouble. Logarithmic expressions were also used along with the half life to determine how much time it would take for a radioactive element to decrease a certain amount. We performed an optimization problem, in which we used to the graphing calculator to determine the maximum volume. The student was eager to learn the material."
