Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed information for the student's test next week. Additionally, we went over section 9.7 and 9.8 that will be on the test as well. She is still quite confident with the information we went over in the previous session."
"Went over more algebra problems and some chemistry. The student is beginning chemistry and currently having trouble with balancing problems. I will look into some extra practice problems for her for the next time she needs help."
"The student and I went over problems involving ratios, proportions, and unit rates. We then went over problems involving solving a system of equations graphically and algebraically."
"Today the student and I worked on scientific notation, multiplication, two-step equations, and division. The student is showing signs of improvement in content retention as we get farther along in her sessions. I am very proud to say that she is learning and grasping the concepts as we go over them."
"The student and I covered older topics, as well as the idea of best fitting a line. He is still wrapping his head around the idea of having a line that best fits the data but doesn't necessarily contain any of the data. He is no longer struggling with the older material, and even seems to be doing well with newer material. His attitude and confidence have greatly improved after realizing that he knows how to solve the sorts of problems we went over. I purposely made mistakes in order to get him to catch them and boost his confidence. The mistakes he didn't catch, I was able to turn into brief explanations. He is really improving!"
"Although the student already had 2 tests in the class so far, we went over the material that she was already tested on to make sure she has a good understanding before going over the recent material. We went over graphing quadratic equations, inequalities, graphing inequalities on a number line, solving for x, graphing linear equations, and solving for systems of equations. She first struggled with understanding the material at first, because there doesn't seem to be a solid structure and order for the way the material was presented to her. However, once I explained some connections that need to be made, it was making more sense to her. She was very optimistic about learning and was eager to learn when I asked her "trick" questions about the material. There were simple questions to make sure she understands the fundamentals and to encourage her to always check her work. At the end she worked on her homework on systems of equations and I showed her ways how the material can get a little more complicated."
