Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We are continuing preparation for the SAT math test. She then took another practice, which we went over. We then worked a bit on trigonometry and I had her do some problems with those."
"Today we reviewed for the student's exam on volume and surface area of three dimensional shapes. We then went over coordinate geometry (slope, midpoint, and distance formulas)."
"Things are going very well with the student. She is a bright student and fun to work with. She seems to be much more solid in her ability to factor and, therefore, to solve quadratics."
"The student took a 5 minute multiplication test. She had an improvement by 12 since last week. She then completed her homework - adding and subtracting like fractions and simplifying and converting to mixed numbers."
"The student worked on converting improper fractions to mixed numbers. She was initially a little confused about using strip diagrams to illustrate the relationship between improper fractions and mixed numbers. We worked several examples until she was comfortable with the concept. She practiced reading her poem out loud and with feeling; then she analyzed it."
"The student and I continued prepping for his midterm today. We spent time practicing solving systems of equations with two and three variables, graphing related lines, and working with linear equations more generally. He seems largely comfortable with the concepts at hand. His understanding of math has been improving. His general commitment is obviously high, given the hours he puts into his work each day."
