Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on multiplying numbers larger than 3 digits by expanding out the numbers and multiplying the parts and then adding those results. He did well when the numbers were expanded already, but when he had to expand the numbers out himself, he struggled with remembering all of the parts. We talked about how writing down the individual parts was okay and that with more practice his memory would improve."
"Went over quadratics. We first reviewed how to extract graphical information from a quadratic equation. I showed him how most of the info can be found by just getting the vertex. I showed him several methods of getting the vertex, which he grasped quickly and was able to apply with no trouble. We then reviewed solving systems of equation. I then assigned him several problems, which he performed flawlessly. He has a test on Thursday."
"We worked on an order of operations worksheet. The student needs more practice with this concept. Once we took our time and paid attention to integers and orders, she began to do a bit better. We will continue work on this concept in our next session."
"Today we worked through the student's exam review sheet. We worked on properties of triangles and polynomials. We also worked on circle problems and then applications of all three types of problems."
"The student and I went over summations and sequences of series, including finding the limit of a given series. We also went over vectors, including magnitude and direction."
"The student had two finals to study for: poetry & math. The student is very smart and understands all the given material/assignments."
