Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"After acing his last test with a 100, the students grade is on the rise which is great news! In this session, we covered several old topics as a review of the Fall semester. Those topics included: limits, continuity, differentiability, differentiation rules and velocity, average and instantaneous rates of change, and total distance traveled of a particle."
"The student and I met from 6-7:30 to prepare for her Algebra2 final exam. We prepared by reviewing some of the more difficult concepts including rational root theorem, finding the equation of quadratic functions given either the graph only or a set of points on the function, and also by doing magnitudes of numbers with real and imaginary parts in the form of a+bi. She still had some questions left to complete on the review but those were all problems that I believe she would be able to complete on her own. Altogether we have agreed that she should get an A on this final."
"I had the student write an ACT writing section essay, which I edited and critiqued for him. We also reviewed several older writing assignments, finding his weak areas that we are going to focus on in the coming weeks. We did a brush-up English ACT section, as well."
"We have spent a lot of time focusing on the math portion and getting his knowledge up to speed for expectations at this grade level. He has expressed interest in moving up in difficulty at his school, and I would encourage that. He is very smart and has shown good, intuitive command of the principles. "
"The student worked on multiple digit subtraction problems with borrowing. She did great on those. Then we worked on multiplication which she did pretty well on as well. I gave her a packet of homework to work on between now and the time that I see her next. She worked on simple addition using both pictures and a number line."
"Today we reviewed the history of politics in Italy and Germany leading up to the beginning of WWII. The student remembered details from the previous session, and she was quick to understand with a very positive attitude. She is very attentive and focused. I encouraged her to try to see the big picture of historical flow and to review some of the sections in the text that we didn't cover together. As usual, the student was very receptive and responsive to the session with a great deal of focus on what we're discussing. Great meeting."
