Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over the student's packets. He mostly struggled with triangles, using the Pythagorean theorem, and finding angles that consist of parallel lines. I explained to him in detail how to approach each type of problem and he eventually understood it better."
"The student and I kept reviewing the material for his final. We went over a test that he took, which was on radicals and radical expressions. We also reviewed inequalities and how to solve them."
"Worked on questions from the student's review packet. Topics included factoring quadratics, standard deviation calculations, fractions, standard error, distribution, imaginary roots, etc."
"During this session, we covered systems of equations dealing with quadratic functions and tactics we can use to solve such problems. We focused on discussing associative, commutative, and transitive properties and how those are used to manipulate math expressions. She expressed concerns about being able to derive equations from looking at graphs of parabolas and exponential functions, so I gave her some practice with those kinds of questions."
"We continued working on the chapter containing rational expressions and inverse relations. The student is still struggling with keeping track of solutions when she moves quickly, so we tried to slow things down. She has a strong grasp of using least common denominators, but needs some work with seeing how equations can be simplified (which we will cover in the future.)"
"During this session, we worked on problems that required us to find the formula for a line that is given on a graph. We analyzed the graph to find the y-intercept and the slope of the line, then used that information to input into the line formula. We found the slope of a line given two coordinate points on the line. We used an interactive math website to get more practice with finding the formula of specific lines on the coordinate plane. We also practiced adding and subtracting negative integers, which was a topic that the student needed to review. She was eventually solve these problems independently after we did a few problems together."
