Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed for his chapter 3 test. Again, after some brief notes about graphing lines, parabolas, and solving for inequalities he seemed to understand all of the topics on his test. We focused on finishing his review for his exam and then I went back and had him redo some problems I was concerned about, which he was able to do without any trouble. I don't foresee any issues."
"Today he shared with me his algebra chapter 1 test scores. He got a 98%! Tomorrow he has a chapter 2 test and we reviewed some of the more difficult chapter problems to prepare for the exam. He did well at talking out the solutions and realizing when simple computation errors were made. We also began reviewing the math workbook. We made it through warm-ups 1 and 2 and partly through workout 1. Again, he got most of the answers right, and the ones that were wrong were simple calculation errors. Next week we will continue to go over the math workbook and get into more difficult problems."
"We found the slope of a line using three approaches, showed that they are equivalent, used slopes in word problems, discussed the meaning of a linear equation in word problems, found x and y intercepts, used slopes to compare perpendicular and parallel lines. She's very good at math. I left her with the homework for 2.4."
"She and I covered mean, median, and mode, as well as standard deviation and finding the Q1, Q3, IQR, and Z of a set of data. She is doing very well with the material."
"Today the student and I went over her homework and then her study guide. The work mostly consisted of solving for the slope of various points and determining if the lines were perpendicular, parallel, or neither. There were also some inequalities that she solved and absolute values as well. The most difficult type of problem for her to solve was when there was more than one variable and you had to solve the equation in terms of one of the variables. She did improve throughout the session though."
"In tonight's session the student and I covered addition and subtraction of whole numbers and decimal points. We also covered multiplication and division. He understands how to multiply, divide, subtract, and add. All in all he did not seem to struggle too much with tonight's homework."
"We reviewed the student's most recent test as well as going through the chapter review. He has two review sections in his book before his next test and we will meet up next week to see how he is doing thus far with these concepts."
"The student and I reviewed for a makeup quiz on piece wise functions and also worked on her homework for tonight. Finally, we came up with a plan to tackle the world history assignments. I really think it will help her stay on target with those assignments. We did have to have a conversation about telling our brain to wake up and pay attention, but she rallied herself and didn't have any major problems after the conversation. Good job today!"
"The student and I went over the associative and communicative property of addition and multiplication. We also covered the order of operations and how the two fit together. He is still having a little bit of a problem with identifying the negative vs. the subtraction properties of an equation. We also readdressed the paper he is writing for English class on the poem."
"The student did not have any homework today since they were assessment testing at school. So, we worked on multiplication and division flash cards. We did make sure that she had completed any previous homework that she had been assigned."
"The student and I went over the homework from chapter 1 and reviewed the questions that he was not understanding. We are conjoining the geometry aspect with the algebra aspect . He is grasping the concepts but I think it would be helpful if he came prepared with questions, comments or concerns so we can be a little more connected with the lessons being taught in school."
"Today the student and I went over two step equations. That is the concept his math class is working on. He had a strong grasp of the two step, so we worked some practice questions and then moved on to solving multi step and variables on both side of the equation. The session went well, no concerns. I look forward to our next session."
