Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we covered solving rational equations and inequalities. The student has a test tomorrow so we spent most of the time solving polynomials. I look forward to meeting with her next week."
"Worked on homework assignments from last week and current. Student was having trouble with multiplying and dividing fractions with exponents and variables, converting square and cubic feet and yards, and adding and subtracting unlike variable fractions. We got through two and a half assignments and she seemed confident that she could complete the last half on her own. It seems like the method her teacher uses is a little confusing, so it's less a conceptual misunderstanding and more a need for better explanation."
"Student just had an exam earlier today, and his teacher was kind enough to provide him with practice material for the upcoming chapter they intend to cover in class. We got a head start today and covered adding, subtracting, and multiplying polynomials. He did very well on practice problems but had some trouble with word problems (contextualizing mathematics). We'll revisit this during our next session. I left a few worksheets with answers for him to practice."
"We checked on where the student was in class and decided to continue our lesson on slope. We learned how to derive an equation from the given graph. She is becoming more comfortable with using terminology like slope, y- intercept."
"Today we went over functions and the concept of finding the pattern in a sequence when using functions. The student appears to have a good understanding and he is doing very well completing the problems once the concepts are explained in detail."
"Student A has started the point slope form of an equation. He is doing well and is applying material from previous sessions. I worked with Student B on fractions and arithmetic of fractions. She knows the different operations but mixes them up. She has as assessment she needs to do but she needs some practice first. I suggested some practice material to work on first."
