Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During today's session, multiplication and division equations were reviewed. Exercises from the student's math textbook provided exercises used for independent practice. The student scored a 27/30 on the exercises assigned. The student displayed a positive attitude about reviewing today's concepts."
"During today's session, the student and I reviewed for her final exam. Some of the topics covered were linear equations, quadratic equations, slope, x and y intercepts, absolute value, point slope form, slope intercept form, and standard form. We will continue to review during our next session."
"For the lesson, we covered the topic of how least squares regression could be derived from linear algebra. This was a continuation of the material involving vector spaces and gave us an opportunity to look at the real-world applications of linear algebra. Besides solving some problems by hand, I had the student work through some using the Python package NumPy so he could practice solving these problems computationally."
"For the session, I reviewed Student 1's homework, and then I worked with Student 2 on algebra two. We worked on factoring quadratics, looking for minimum and maximum values of a quadratic function, and graphing quadratics."
"For this lesson, the student and I worked together to complete a textbook homework assignment that she needed to do. The focus of the homework was probability, particularly dealing with conditional probability. In the course of doing the problems, we practiced drawing probability trees, Venn diagrams, and two-way tables; reviewed statistics rules, like Bayes' theorem and the rule of addition (for finding "or" probability); and wrote out explanations for various statistical findings. We also reviewed random variable probability distributions and how to find their variance and expected value. Random event independence was touched on as well."
"For this session we again went through various operations involving mixed numbers. We looked at several word problems and at different techniques for rewriting equations. I would say that the student is still experiencing problems generalizing rules based on individual problems. We will continue to work on this next session."
