Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We continued to work on the upcoming Algebra exam. We covered topics on finding the same solutions for equations, interpreting and converting word problems to equations, interpreting the change of increase or decrease in a graph. She is very vocal and expressive and responds very well to feedback."
"During today's session the student requested help with her physical science homework on nomenclature and oxidation numbers. We then moved on to her math assignments on the quadratic equation and determinants."
"Today we continued working on factoring polynomials by GCF and differences of squares. She really understands this concept and when she finished her work. She had a positive attitude throughout the session. I was able to help her with her French and science assignments. She noted that her math grade has increased. Great session."
"The student and I reviewed FOIL (first outside inside last) for distributing polynomials. We then switched to French and reviewed direct object pronouns (dop) with the present tense."
"This week, the student did not have questions about what she covered in class over the past week. We did go over the Algebra 1 diagnostic that she began two weeks ago. There were a few problems that she answered incorrectly. Some problems were difficult just because of the wording and others she simply has not learned how to do yet. We went over most of the questions she got wrong. We will wait to go over the questions that she has not learned how to do yet. For the upcoming week, I gave her practice problems pertaining to operations with integers in her skill builders book. She always has a positive attitude about working through problems with me."
"The student and I reviewed a worksheet he was assigned in class in preparation for his quiz tomorrow. This worksheet was composed of a mix of problems that incorporated all of the concepts discussed in the last four sections covered in his class. In addition, many of the problems required using multiple strategies to completely factor. I began the session as I had done in previous sessions by describing to him the five methods of factoring that we would be responsible for knowing. In addition, I also taught him that a useful pointer for determining which method was most appropriate was to count up the number of terms present in the expression. After a few practice problems, he was able to successfully solve most of the problems on his own. I assigned him another worksheet I had printed out for him as additional practice."
