Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student needed assistance in determining the function when given the points and graphing the function if given two points. We discussed how the slope will identify the points of the function and the direction of the graph. We briefly discussed the topic to be covered in class next week: arithmetic sequences."
"The student needed help in understanding recursive sequences and sequence function notation. She was miscalculating in certain areas, so we worked on making sure she kept her work nice and organized so the errors would be reduced. She seemed confident at the end, and I also sense that she was able to understand the concepts we went over."
"The student needed practice for his inequalities test on Friday. He is learning about solving inequalities and compound inequalities. We are going to meet tomorrow to work on his English paper and continue more practice for his algebra test."
"The student needed to make up a number of homework assignments. During the hour, we reviewed 3.5 and 3.2, and he completed these two homework assignments. Specific topics included identifying and rearranging equations into the slope-intercept form, graphing equations using the slope intercept form, identifying domain and range, matching equations with their graph, and applying these concepts to word problems."
"The student primarily practiced solving one step inequalities, and graphing them on a number line. He clearly has mastery of this content but, at times, makes simple mistakes, such as switching the sign of the inequality, or forgetting to add/subtract. Once I had him explain why he thought his answer was wrong, he was quickly able to correct his mistakes. He mentioned that this particular math packet was easier than previous ones. We also spent some time setting up the projects he must complete in order to move on to the next section. Great session!"
"The student received her exam back. She did not get a grade because her professor allows her to correct the incorrect questions before the final grade. She had some problems with finding the total number of periods and the APY for one problem. Today, we worked on sinking funds. She is comfortable with the material because it is similar to the previous material. She has to find the total number of periods, the rate/period, and the factor and multiply that by the amount given. She then needs to multiply the payment by the number of periods and subtract that from the amount given to find the answer. We then worked on future value annuities and present value annuities and compared all three. She has an exam in two weeks."
