Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student needed help with her online algebra class. Concepts covered in the section included adding equations within a system to solve for two variables. She did well after reviewing the lesson and going over a few examples together."
"Covered linear equations, substitution, and elimination methods. The student is working on the basics of equation manipulations. This week, she has shown progress in her work, demonstrating her ability to navigate through to a solution. Her attitude has been excellent toward learning the material. Provided her with a step-by-step process to solve problems, and this seems to be helping. Reviewed her assessment scores and am working on improving the areas of weakness for her. She needs to continue practicing problems using the step-by-step process that I provided her, this will help her grasp the concepts."
"Went over the material he needs to know for his quiz. We had to review one of the exponent rules, but we completely figured that out, so he should be fine for the quiz! We will be meeting twice before his next test, which is Friday."
"During this session, we reviewed for the student's upcoming assessment. She did well and I feel had solidified the concepts we worked on in the previous session. We covered quadratics, linear equations, word problems, exponents, naming functions and solving systems of equations. I believe she will do well on her exam."
"Today the student and I reviewed for her final Monday. We went over the final review worksheet that she was given by her teacher as well as a few problems from her book end review. Overall the session went well. She needs to review the rules for adding and subtracting radical expressions, finding slope, factoring quadratics. She did fine with solving basic equations and solving systems of equations, so I encouraged her to focus on other areas. I reminded her to remember to be careful with dropping negative signs, which I noticed her doing a number of times when finding slope. I gave her a couple of tips at the end of the session and encouraged her to look at videos if she struggles with a particular topic. I also told her to memorize certain equations, which I emailed to her."
"We covered a lengthy review packet for the student's final unit test. The first two sections dealt with function combinations and graphing of exponential functions. After going over inverse functions and shortcuts with the graphing, she felt much more confident. We then turned to logarithms. She was not comfortable with these to start, but after drilling several similar problems and writing down the most important rules to remember, the pieces starting falling into place. We left off after two hours, planning for her to take a break and then come back to practicing logarithm condensing and expanding."
