Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Tonight we prepared for the student's chapter 5 test tomorrow. He has mastered finding the orthocenter, incenter, and circumcenter algebraically and I would recommend he practice the assigned 4 questions I gave him tonight as well as review key terms."
"We read a passage on Winter, a dolphin with a prosthetic fluke, and answered questions testing the student's comprehension in general and working specifically on the skill of inference. We practiced the cursive letters o, m, and n as individual letters and in words. He specifically asked to play the same math game as Saturday and we played 3 rounds."
"The student was on winter break but still needed help with some optional homework he was left. Today's subject was least common multiples. At first he didn't understand how to do the problems but once I explained it to him, it was a breeze for him. We got through a significant amount of problems and he was smiling by the end because he was proud of himself!"
"During this session, the student completed several problems involving fractions on application problems involving sprinkler systems. There were several problems where he had to add fractions together and then subtract to get a result, as well calculate a usage total for a given period of time (i.e. how many gallons per minute were used if.....). He did well on most parts."
"The student had a math test that she took, and she needed to correct all of her wrong answers in order to get extra credit on her test score. She had started out most of the problems correctly; she just either didn't finish them completely or she couldn't remember the formulas needed as she worked. She was having a difficult time remembering formulas for slope, point intercept form, etc."
"We discussed a homework assignment on determining common multiples and the least common multiple. We listed the multiples and used factor trees. Then, we reviewed new science vocabulary flashcards and discussed the other methods the student is using to prepare for her upcoming science test."
