Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today, the student and I went over multistep linear equations and PEMDAS. She was able to carry out the simpler PEMDAS equations, but she would start mixing up the steps with the larger problems. I always encourage her to do each problem one step at a time, but I think she is still trying to combine multiple steps. This especially shows with the multi-step equations. However, she is definitely improving, and I know with continued practice and guidance, she will rock these concepts."
"The student worked on his online Algebra 2 program, using the online curriculum. He did several exercises and 3 quizzes involving translations of quadratic functions. He also completed the first quiz on vertical stretches for quadratic functions. He received 100% on all of them! I reviewed a packet that he had done on inverse functions. On the quadratic translations, he did a great job!"
"In my session with the student today, we went over various topics including simplifying rational expressions, factoring polynomials, and graphing functions. Twenty topics must be completed before Sunday, along with the Knowledge Check."
"During this session, we reviewed solving quadratic equations using the quadratic formula. We talked about using the determinant to determine how many real roots the equation has. She made definite progress during our session and understood the material by the end of the session."
"We completed review of transformations of trig functions including period, phase shift, amplitude, vertical shift, and graphing accordingly. In addition, we completed an overview of the original sine and cosine graph to establish a firm foundation."
"Today was our first session. I got to know the goals of the student a bit better, so I am fully prepared for our next session. Today we went over some basic pre-algebra material and did the student's homework together. We also got a bit acquainted during the session, and discussed that the purpose of this tutoring is to help prepare the student for next year in math."
