Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We completed coordinate plane homework and the linear equations packet. We covered writing equations in two variables based on tables and word scenarios and even had a sneak preview of the distance formula and square roots (high school level)! Student was very positive. Student was far more fluent about the order of operations and was better able to distinguish between the rules of multiplying/dividing versus adding/subtracting exponents."
"The student is still having trouble with counting up to ten and from ten to one backwards without using her fingers. I will continue to bring basic math forms for her and I have asked her mother to practice with her, as well. She is also having trouble with basic addition, but I think that is directly related to her problems counting. Once she is able to understand the first ten numbers and how quantity works, I believe that addition and subtraction will quickly fall into place."
"We reviewed the trig functions, units circles and angle-side triangles for his quiz on Wednesday. He had a hard time understanding how angles, sides and sin/cosine functions related to each other, so I explained the concept to him using SOHCAHTOA and then did several practice problems. We then reviewed the difference between radians and degrees and how to convert between the two. We used the review to complete several trig and word problems from the practice test. We need to review the basic concepts together again, but overall it was a good session. With constant practice he should see improvement in his scores."
"We discussed the chapter 5 test, and carefully reviewed each concept of chapter 5, e.g. adding/multiplying powers, graphing polynomials, synthetic division, long division, factoring, simplifying like terms, etc."
"We reviewed pre-calc, then moved on to SAT study. The student will require the most review in SAT math. We will plan out our upcoming sessions to cover test prep."
"We finished an assignment on hyperbolas and the student did the test on conics. We just started a section on using synthetic division."
