Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student worked on addition and subtraction of fractions with unlike denominators, working on determining least common denominators and simplifying the answers. There were also some answers that were improper fractions which he changed to proper fractions. He was also able to make some real progress on one of the chapter books he is currently reading."
"We covered basic trigonometric functions (sin, cosine, and tangent) and how to determine the length of the side of a right triangle when given an angle and one side or how to determine the angle of a right triangle when given two sides. We also covered word problems where the student had to apply the rules of trigonometric formulas to real-world problems, as well as using special right triangles (45-45-90 and 30-60-90). We also went over a quiz on radicals that he received back. He has a good understanding of the trigonometric functions, and picked up the material very well. He should do well with a little more organization. The session went well, and I think he will do well in math."
"We reviewed reflection and rotational symmetry and then started her next homework assignment. The problem set covered basic measurements, and she did well on the problem set. I assigned an extra homework assignment."
"The student and I worked on adding, subtracting, dividing, and multiplying fractions today. We were focused on taking problems from the practice exam and reframing them into usable functions. I think it went well, and while he definitely has the problem solving capabilities, we'll keep working to make fractions second nature for him."
"The student and I continued to work on his writing and expanding his ideas. He is getting better with breaking down ideas from the writing prompts. Also, there were less spelling errors today. I will email the writing steps that we used today for the reading prompt. He can use these steps when writing an essay or any other writing assignment. Overall, we had a good session today."
"The student and I went over homework involving trigonometry identities. He seems to really be able to follow along with what I am explaining, and if he doesn't, he is not afraid to ask the questions, which is an integral part of learning in my opinion!"
