Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on math during this session. We practiced perimeter, area and volume of objects. We also reviewed his math test, which included the same subject material plus angles and shapes. He still has issues with his multiplication/division tables and reverts to adding the number multiple times (ex. 130+130+130 instead of 130Ã—3). He is able to grasp the concepts after we work together, though. So, with practice he should be able to gain some confidence in his math skills."
"We continued working on trigonometry. This session was finished early. I will carry over 20 extra minutes for the student to use as she needs. In the meantime, I highly recommend that she work on memorizing the unit circle, and this will help her greatly with answering this chapter's questions."
"Student A concentrated on reading comprehension. He is still fluctuating a lot in reading comprehension. Student B had math homework to complete, after which he wanted to practice writing as opposed to practicing reading comprehension. In math class, he has been practicing calculating volume and area of 3-D objects, such as cones, cylinders, cubes, prisms, etc. For writing practice, he did very well on a prompt from the SAT practice questions, asking him his opinion on whether it is better to focus on simple experiences or complex experiences that make people happy. He did a good job on structure, transitions, and using examples."
"At the beginning of our session, I reviewed the student's homework packet for this week and ensured that her answers were correct. She has been learning how to count money in school (we worked on this together last week). After this, we worked out of her two supplementary workbooks. We continued with the concepts of arrays and basic multiplication. Today she seemed to grasp that multiplication was related to addition. We practiced converting step counting for 2 and 3 into a multiplication chart and then used the chart she made to answer problems for her workbook. We also attempted a puzzle which involved telling time on several different clocks."
"The student and I went over FOIL and practicing how to do it. I then had her learn how to identify the difference between expressions through the use of parenthesis. She's doing awesome."
"The student went through her homework. It was about proof sum of series by induction property. I explained to her how she has to start and the steps that she has to follow to proof them. I solved 2-3 problems with her and then asked her to solve 2-3 problems for me to make sure she is able to do them. She understood them and she is doing well."
