Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student has a test tomorrow on graphs with asymptotes and linear vs. direct relationships. We went through an entire review packet, and then I wrote a few more practice problems for her to go over."
"We reviewed the practice test that the student provided, making particular note of keywords such as "average" that indicated a particular course of action."
"We continued review for the upcoming exam, going over problems of concern for the student--radicals, Pythagorean theorem, and quadratic equations."
"Student K and I talked about how to solve problems with numbers that have several zeros and are being multiplied together (100x100). We also reviewed the different ways that his math book might show multiplication, because there are several different signs. We completed lesson 15, which covered problems about equal groups and I noticed that he included correct units of measure where required. I helped Student B with lesson 16, expanded form and subtraction with missing numbers. I did help her understand how to solve the subtraction problems with missing numbers because she did not understand the process. Now she sees that there are 2 methods and can recognize which is appropriate per problem, but is still working on perfecting this. Student S completed his lesson 15 work with very little input from me. So far he has been completing his math work with great understanding and few questions or mistakes."
"Student J and I reviewed his logic homework assignment, where he had to complete proofs using various laws of logic. He had very little issue completing the assignment and had few questions. Student M had a review packet that she needed to review for a math test for the next day. Overall, she understood the concepts. However, she made frequent errors when completing problems that she could quickly identify if I mentioned to her that she made errors. I gave her multiple strategies to try implementing to promote her showing more work, checking her answers, and pacing herself properly, to try and help her with making minor mistakes."
"The student and I worked on rational and irrational numbers, and the concept of the proof for irrational numbers."
