Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We discussed and reviewed questions that the student got incorrect on a recent test. We also went over some basic skills and discussed the importance of double checking her work when she reached the end of the test."
"The student is preparing for a math test that he will take this coming Tuesday. On his last math quiz, testing perfect squares, he received a 100%. He is now learning how to multiply and divide fractions and decimals. One area that he was having difficulty in was knowing when he could do the operation with the decimal, and when he should move the decimal place to the right in order to work with whole numbers. We discussed how in long division, the divisor should be a whole number, but the dividend does not need to be. Once he had practiced that, we did sample problems together based upon the ones that he had done for homework in this unit. He understood the concepts well."
"This week I reviewed Binomial, Poisson, and Geometric distributions with the student. We were able to work through most of her homework problems which included determining the probability of x number of binomial outcomes or the number of events that occur in a given time frame. I was also able to show the student some basic tips to working with her calculator that I think will make things easier for her in the future. She expresses a lot of gratitude during each session and continues to remark that her tutoring sessions make understanding statistics much easier."
"We continued to practice her world problem skills and strengthen her subtraction. She was able to easily decipher the problems at the end of the session."
"Today the student and I reviewed her algebra 2 homework. She finished the worksheet that was due tomorrow as well as practice problems. The student also completed her next homework assignment that is due."
"The material this week (trig substitutions) was particularly challenging. The student definitely will need to do more of it to be ready. We reviewed the homework, but it was definitely a challenge."
