Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Reviewed algebra for her test this week going over the section review and problems within it. After finishing the review, we pulled problems from the sections and other review areas for her to practice."
"Today we worked on percentages. We did problems such as using ratios (is over of, & part over whole) as well as word problems. At the end of the session, we worked on problems solving for percentage increase/decrease and tax problems."
"This week we focused on finding functions that were parallel and perpendicular to original functions. He had a quiz on Chapter 4 the next day, so we did some additional practice after we finished his homework."
"Today we worked on factoring quadratic equations. We tried a different method which she had said was difficult for her last year, but after working on it together this time, she was able to perform the manipulation."
"We went over the questions the student missed on her quiz and then worked ahead to solving linear inequalities and systems of equations. I left her with a couple review sessions to do as homework. Our next session is next Sunday."
"We went through his previous chapter's exam to do test corrections. After that, he had about 25 homework problems to do about solving inequalities. He did very well."
"Worked with Student 1 for an hour on multiplying and dividing fractions ordering rational numbers and converting from fractions to decimals. Worked with Student 2 for the remaining time on equations of parallel and perpendicular lines."
"Today, the student had some inequality graphs to work on. We also solved some inequalities and some absolute value equations. He should be able to improve his grade in algebra if he keeps putting in the same level of work."
"We worked on solving systems of equations. The student has a test on Thursday and she is definitely ready for it. Next session she is going to bring all of her books and we are going to make sure she is up to date in all classes."
"We worked on point-slope form, direct variation, slope-intercept form, word problems, solving equations, and finding and plotting points on a graph. The student's mom informed me that his grades are doing better."
"The student completed homework (dividing fractions), and he seems to understand the material. We worked on some additional, more complicated problems to be strengthen his understanding of reducing like terms and factoring in fractions."
"Tonight's work focused on graphing equations that contained absolute values. The student understood the concept well (such equations produce v-shaped graphs)."
