Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We continued with solving for algebraic expressions. He's very polite. We went over primary skills like adding and subtracting fractions. I left him with some extra practice. There is a certain problem I instructed him to complete that came from his homework assignment."
"He had a quiz on exponents coming up so we did a lot of practice to prepare for that. He needed some explanation of negative exponents. We also continued to work on substitution since his quiz will mostly be linear equations."
"The student and I prepared for her "chapter 10" test. She did really well-it was great to see the improvement from just the beginning of this chapter. She is catching on to the concepts well and is soaking in more than she realizes. We worked on factoring and finding solutions to quadratic equations."
"The student and I began reviewing for his final exam. He will be taking the final exam on just the information he has covered since being at the new school. We went through each chapter and made a list of the important concepts that he needs to review. We also focused on some practice problems from each chapter. We still need to review 2 more chapters and will do that on Thursday."
"Today, we started by digging a little deeper into inequalities. Then, we began the topic of functions by observing patterns and determining rules for a variety of functions. The student did a great job and solved several challenging problems! I am continually impressed by her. I will start bringing some homework for her to work on between sessions."
"We went over quadratic equations. He seemed to struggle with these at first, but soon was able to get the hang of it. Quadratic equations are very tricky and have a lot of properties that can be confusing."
