Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered specifically hypothesis testing, confidence intervals, and a new topic of student's t interval. The student did well in learning the t-distribution and picked up quickly on it."
"SAS and SSS similarity theorems and examples. The student is getting better at applying ideas to solve problems. He just needs to keep working on examples."
"The student and I reviewed measuring length and volume for his test the next day. We reviewed the website material that his teacher assigned, went over all the vocab words, and practiced measuring different objects around the house. He had an excellent grasp of the material."
"He started with a homework sheet for geometry. The student is learning the names and properties of different geometric shapes. After we finished the worksheet we drilled his multiplication tables using flashcards and a timed worksheet. By the end of our drilling he was getting faster."
"Today the student and I reviewed two-step equations with one solution, infinite solutions, and no solutions. She did really well at understanding the steps involved. I gave her sample quizzes to practice and she got most of them right on the first try, caught her mistakes before she finished, and I received an email today from her mom that she got 100% on her quiz. I have seen tremendous improvement in her and I am so proud she is doing so well!"
"The student and I covered drawing lines on an XY coordinate plane, then drawing a second line that was either a translation or a rotation of the first line. She shows improvement on her latest quiz. Once the concept is explained, she quickly learns it and can complete similar problems."
"Covered solution to system of linear equations. Covered how to graph inequalities and solutions to systems of inequalities. Covered how to find x- and y-intercepts. Covered word problems involving variable other than x and y. Covered how to set up a calculator solution to systems of linear equations. Student performed exceedingly well."
"Today we covered polynomials and how to find zeroes and roots of polynomials. We also went over long and synthetic division. We investigated word problems involving polynomials, and we covered complex numbers. The student has extra practice to work on, and he mentioned he received an "A" on his last quiz."
"This evening, the pupil and I reviewed the material he is learning in class for half of the session and then focused on math. We reviewed his homework, which included solving equations containing variables on both sides. We reviewed the solutions to the math problems in a practice exam for the assessment test. Overall, he seems to grasp the material."
"We covered synthetic and long division of polynomials, translations of linear functions, and solving systems of equations. I encouraged him to do more of his work on paper rather than trying to solve problems in his head. I choose problems in the textbook that represented topics I believe he needs to focus on."
"The student and I went over problems pertaining to polynomial inequalities. She had homework on these exercises from her textbook, so we worked on those. Also, she received a "B" in her class. As always, she seems to know what she's doing. I checked her answers, and they were mostly correct."
"The pupil has a math test tomorrow, and we reviewed her homework questions involving mixed numbers, fractions, negatives values, absolute value, setting up numeric expressions from a word problem, solving for a variable, and inequalities. She solved most of them correctly on her own. I reinforced the rule of flipping the inequality sign when you multiply or divide by a negative number. I also emphasized to her that she performs better when she slows down. I reinforced the idea of checking her answers. We also did a quantitative test set, and she did very well with the filling-in-the-number series."
