Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I spent the time reviewing math concepts with the student, particularly ratios and averages. We also talked a little about vocabulary."
"This session introduced new topics: percents, compound, and simple interest. Walked student through the basics of percents--identifying it as a fraction with a denominator of 100; explained (briefly) why using fractions with a denominator of 100 is useful. We spent about 35 minutes practicing percent to fraction conversions, and vice-versa. Along the way, noticed some areas where the student needed some additional practice, including rounding numbers to the nearest place value, long-hand division, and converting fractions to decimals. We spent time reviewing these concepts. Student grasps concepts quickly--impressively so. Her confidence has soared."
"This was the first session that I sat down and taught content to the student. I had previously assigned him the task of writing out note cards of the exam vocabulary list in the review book. We carefully went over how to make his study cards. He did extremely well on the math."
