Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered area and volume with integrals. The student was struggling most with the finding the proper limits for the rotation of the volume or the area of the solid. She seemed optimistic and was getting the material. We found some rhyming phrases that could help with this progress. She has a retest tomorrow and we will go over this material."
"The first student and I worked through more GCF and LCM fraction worksheets for her school. She practiced more multiplication math facts, we discussed fact families for division & multiplication and worked through some long division problems at her request. She is starting some decimal work, so I reviewed tenths and number places. She ran through vocabulary I gave her a week ago and also looked at words such as puddle...short vowel followed by double consonant followed by -le, so that she can practice this type of word pattern recognition. The second student had less work; she went over what her math quiz was on today: reflections, ratios, congruent & similar shapes. We continue to review and practice systems of equations, what they mean in relation to equation of a line and the corresponding graphs. This practice also helps her algebraic skills."
"We reviewed domain, range, x-intercept, and y-intercept. We then discussed different types of functions, including linear, quadratic, cubic, and absolute value. These concepts were relatively new to the student. After my explanation of each concept, she quickly caught on and was able to understand the examples in her text book. She said that she found the review incredibly helpful. Overall, it was a very good first session."
"During this session, the student and I worked on her multiplication tables of factors 7 and 8. We reviewed times tables as well. It was a solid session."
"We worked on ordered pair plotting, line graphs from data tables and multiplying fractions. The student worked very hard and did a great job!"
"We covered the first half of her finals packet, which included simplifying exponential terms and factoring polynomials."
