Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We learned some new material that his class will cover in the next sections. He just learned ratios, so we applied them in finding lengths of similar polygons and finding scale factors."
"We completed the student's homework assignment for Section 7-1, ratios and proportions. Her attitude is excellent. This first session went very well."
"Today we worked on simplifying and multiplication and division of rational functions. I clarified for him what values of x are excluded values, and by the end of the session he was able to simplify and state the excluded values with ease."
"We continued working on number lines but with more complex inequalities. He was struggling with dividing and multiplying negative numbers, and also working with negative numbers in general. He was excited to learn. I told him to write down the tips and tricks in his notebook and look them over before a test. I left him with his homework and told him to redo all the problems and compare the answers between the two attempts."
"We went over the homework I left her with last week and then she began the homework her teacher had assigned her that day. The homework mostly covered multiplication and division. The student needs to spend some more time practicing her multiplication tables until she has them memorized. We made a table that we filled in as we went along. This helped her. Also, we used triangles to help show the relationship between division and multiplication. The homework I left her was to finished the multiplication table we had started, and to make triangles out of seven numbers on the table to show the relationship between multiplication and division."
"The student is doing great with carrying over for addition. She still struggles with simple math for large numbers, like adding 1 or taking away 1 from 777. We will definitely try to do more large number problems next time in order to help her understand. She is understanding the concept of less-than and greater-than, with the alligator eating the larger number. She had a great attitude today and was interested in doing flashcards because she was able to earn some keychains in the end. I also took out a good amount of flashcards since she has mastered them, and I will put in newer, more difficult ones to go over next time."
