Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student worked on his homework packet. These were all word problems dealing with addition, subtraction and multiplication. Excellent session."
"The student and I looked over some of her previous math work. We worked on elapsed time and in-and-out machines. She is very quick, and picked up the concepts quickly. We also read a passage and worked on main idea and details."
"The student and I discussed his homework and some reminders for adding mixed numbers and improper fractions."
"Met with the student, as state exams loom ahead about one month from now. For the time being, though, we worked over a recent quiz he had. While not ace-ing things yet, he has definitely shown steady improvement in his quiz grades. His class is working a lot with fractions and decimals now. And while his arithmetic is sound, his step-by-step and big picture skills still need improvement. I think one-on-one focus is really important for him."
"Concepts - power series, conditional versus absolute convergence; Attitude - positive, engaged, friendly; Practice - he has homework which we will discuss next time; Wins - good rapport established; Strategies - use of comparison versus ratio in particular circumstances;"
"The student had a test today, so we worked on a review packet last night during our session. The review packet had these topics: standard notation, expanded notation, word notation, graphing, exponents, order of operations, positive and negative integers, and math problems involving operations of positive and negative integers. We tried to cover as much material as possible within the packet rather than finishing the sections that which he was most familiar. He was positive, as always."
