Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student is beginning a unit on Geometry. His homework consisted of finding the area of various shapes. He was able to identify the shape that was related to each equation. We had extra time at the end of the lesson so we reviewed previous material."
"We went over a review sheet given to the student by her teacher. The review sheet contained problems regarding direct and inverse variation, transformations of the inverse function, arithmetic operations with rational functions, and sketching graphs of rational functions. We reviewed long process for algebraically sketching the graph of a rational function. We went through a few examples and after showing her how the general patterns are derived, it seemed to stick a little better. She seemed ready to take the test."
"Today we did some review for the student's second exam. She seems much more comfortable with the material this time around, and we did some review problems concerning the manipulability of voting systems. After reviewing concepts and definitions for the rest of our session, I recommended that she go home and read the book chapters that the test was covering. This should drive home some of the more difficult concepts, and allow her to perform very well on the test."
"The student worked on several exercises in her textbook involving rounding off whole numbers and decimals. She worked two pages of word problems with rounding off. She has a test on Tuesday. We discussed testing strategies and she set her grade goal for this test as missing only one problem out of the 12 on the test."
"The student and I went over his homework today, which consisted of transforming graphs given particular steps. He did very well overall today and picked up on how to do his homework quickly."
"Today's session we saw both simple and compound interest and we have a test. The student did great on the test; he achieved 85% on it. On simple interest he did very well. He struggle a bit with compound interest but this is normal because he hasn't seen that much this concept, so we'll go step by step in order to help him master this operation."
