Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We spent the session preparing for the student's math final exam, which is tomorrow. We worked through all of her review sheets. She did well with factoring and simplifying expressions. The majority of our focus was on geometry, and we reviewed SOHCAHTOA. We practiced using trig functions, which she did well with. Finally, we worked on coordinate geometry, finding equations of lines and slopes of perpendicular lines. This had been a weakness before for her, but she did these questions with confidence. I think she is poised to do quite well."
"Today we reviewed practice problems for Objectives 1&2. The student is doing much better with the concepts."
"The student did problems involving similar triangles, reviewed last week's problem set and held a team competition of problem solving."
"Tonight we reviewed for the student's test on volume and surface area. We went over questions she had on the study guide. We then went through the study guide again and the student explained each problem. Then we worked some additional practice."
"The student printed out some questions and answers from online to practice with. We reviewed those questions. It included new concepts such as logarithms and probability. She learned how to solve such problems. Also, we continued to work in the practice book and went over several questions. We reviewed old concepts and she remembered to use the tips and hints I told her to use to save time."
"The student did a math 6th grade mission online. Topics included one-variable equations and adding fractions. We focused on multiplying and dividing fractions, and delved into adding and subtracting. Her attitude was excellent; she showed huge improvement on multiplying and dividing fractions, as well as simplifying them."
