Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed the student's math assignments. The concepts were mostly identification of variables, construction of equations, and basic solving through long division and multiplication. She seemed to have solid knowledge of the material. We then went over some Language Arts work. We mostly discussed the meanings of first, second, and third person narration, but also got into the more nuanced subjective, objective, and omniscient narration styles."
"The student and I worked on finding volume and surface area of various shapes (key skill was multiplying fractions). We reviewed ordering various fractions from least to greatest and worked on his violin pieces for his concert tonight."
"This week we continued to work on the student's linear equations homework and his progress is ever improving. I am very proud of his progress in mathematics!"
"Tonight we reviewed for the student's quiz tomorrow. The sections we reviewed covered the natural log and the derivation/integration of this function. He seemed to have a pretty good understanding on the material and we were able to practice sections, such as polynomial long division and u-substitution."
"Today we focused on the student's assigned homework. His homework focused on how to determine if shapes are parallelograms, rectangles, squares, and rhombuses. From his class notes, I was able to extract the information needed to approach such problems. I had him create a checklist that he was able to follow so that he could determine if the shape fit any of the stated criteria. He was able to do these types of problems with little issues. Overall I think he is capable of being a student that succeeds with math. I advised that if he continued taking notes the way he does, we will be just fine in our tutoring sessions. I felt that the session went great. He is a great listener and is quick to understand my explanations. He stays focused, and has a good attitude towards the subject. I look forward to our next session on Thursday."
"We reviewed assignment 8. This contained topics pertinent to interest calculations-simple interest, compounding interest (using tables but also with equations). Once shown the procedure for each type, the student seemed quite fine."
