Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Student and I continued to work on probability and combinatorics. We finished one homework assignment that consisted mainly of the probability of the union and intersection of sample spaces. She is starting to understand the concepts a little better each time. We used Venn diagrams in an application and were able to complete a challenging question. She was able to explain the entire process to me by the end of the session."
"Reviewed lesson problems. Assigned and discussed scientific notation, perfect squares, and square roots."
"Today the student and I went over solving inequalities. We worked extensively with writing up algebraic equations to represent word problem situations. He also reviewed how to work with negative numbers in addition/subtraction and multiplication/division situations."
"The student shared her last multiplication quiz with me, and she answered every question correctly! This was great! Next, she chose to challenge herself with the multiplication handout that I provided. It contained 7's multiplication tables and a word problem. She made some mistakes due to rushing, but corrected each of them on her own with no problem. She really has a handle on these now! Then, she chose to read Diary of a Wimpy Kid for the rest of the session. She understood what was going on in the story and really seemed to enjoy it."
"The student finished her math homework today and utilized skittles and sour patch kids to better visualize problems. For example, seeing that 2/4 and 1/2 came much easier when it was made visual, as did parts to a whole when we were able to discuss how many red skittles there were compared to the other colors in total. She was able to solve all of the fractions problems. She answered all of her reading questions correctly as well!"
"The student is still working on unit rates and ratios. We did a note-taking session on ratios and unit rates today to bring the concepts together with examples and definitions. She was able to solve the problems once we set the problems into phrases containing the word "per" which allows her to set up her fractions easier. We will continue to work on this."
