Tutoring review by Mario in Tarentum, PA
We discussed the test corrections today. The student must commit time to memorizing his times tables and basic mathematics. I highly suggest flash cards just to reinforce material.

The student had many questions about irregular integrals. I discussed with her the many properties of L'Hopital's Rule and the importance of expressing the integral in terms of f(x) divided by g(x). I was also able to give her quite a bit of support on her homework.

Tutoring review by Terry in Tarentum, PA
We worked on English passages three and four, just to keep up practice, though these are easy for the student. We then practiced science passages four through seven, focusing on the strategy of anticipating what questions will be asked while reading and examining graphics. We also discussed looking at patterns, definitions, and questions asking you to insert or extend a new data point and tell what its outcome would be. She found this helpful and was successful in all the questions, with occasional prompt. Great focus and effort today.

Tutoring review by Ted in Tarentum, PA
The student's focus for today's class was to prepare for her math exam on Tuesday. She feels very uncomfortable with math in general so it was imperative that we go over the topics early on before it gets more complicated. Today's math class focused on the introduction to basic trigonometry. The basics are very important as they are the fundamental backbone for the upcoming concepts throughout the year. The lesson covered basic number properties with a little introduction to basic algebra. We were able to cover the study sheet that was provided for the student without much difficulty. Although the sheet involved concepts that were carried over from her previous year, the topics were a little hazy for her. Fortunately, we have time for one more session on Monday to further reinforce her understanding of the topics.
