Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we worked on adding and subtracting rational expressions. I left her with some extra problems to work on so that she can keep studying for her test tomorrow."
"Today we reviewed material that will be on the quiz for the girls tomorrow. We worked on clarifying any misunderstandings that they had. For student A, we focused on the rules of exponents: I gave her different problems of the same concept to assess if she really understood it. For Student B, she did her homework as well as a practice sheet regarding rates. Strategies I suggested include writing clearly, large, and memorize their formulas."
"We did a little bit of finding the area of geometric figures - circles, triangles, and quadrilaterals. Then I rewarded the student's patience by giving him a problem, timing him, and letting him try to beat his best time. This time it was adding unlike fractions; we'll probably do some more of those next Tuesday, and see if the student can beat his best time."
"I think this was a great session. We covered addition and subtraction of radicals. The student struggled a little bit initially but she was much more comfortable with the material by the end of the session, so we went a little ahead and did some multiplication of radicals as well. I think she needs a little more practice so I am going to send some homework I'd like her to complete over the weekend, for next Monday, if possible."
"Today we looked at number sets and Venn diagrams. The student did really well with this material! The only struggle we came across was not counting items in a "both categories" section twice when adding up the total number of items. I hope that he will have a chance to review the older material I sent before our next session to strengthen his number manipulation skills as discussed."
"I worked with the student on her practice paper on functions. The main concept was being able to illustrate a function in different forms. This included graphing, table, sentence and equation. She was able to identify the function and convert to these different forms."
