Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I reviewed linear equations and how to solve them. We also went over some graphing at which he is very good. I hope to advance him on this topic rather quickly as he is picking up on it well."
"We reviewed multiplication, fractions, and decimals today. I also had the student work on some problems that required her to use order of operations. She had a very good grasp of the concepts and was doing the questions faster than the last time. In order for her to continue practicing what we have reviewed during our sessions, I have given her a set of practice problems to work on. For next week we will review these problems, negative numbers, and multiplication."
"The student and I spent our whole session today working on her next homework problem set. This was especially necessary for the student because she missed her previous math class and therefore did not understand how to do the homework."
"Today we went over the Chapter 4 test and started the Chapter 3 review exercises. This was a long homework and although we didn't finish, the student knew what he was doing for almost every question and understood it with little help. He really seems to understand the exponential equations and is excelling in those."
"The student and I worked on her study guide for a test coming up this week. It was on linear equations, graphing, and finding slope and y intercept. She did a great job with drawing graphs and using the slope to find another point on the line. She did a solid job with finding the y intercept form of the equation using two points, though needed a little help using one point to find the y intercept. She was wary at first but then did well on problems where she had to change an equation around to be in y intercept form, as well as word problems on rate of change. I gave her more practice questions for each of these topics and she got them all correct. We spent the end of the session working explicit and recursive formulas for arithmetic sequences. We went over the significance of recursive formulas and now the student is feeling better about these."
"The student needed help creating a "cheat sheet" for a quiz that he had on Friday. We went through an outline of the chapter, and I explained each concept while he took notes. He also wrote out a few examples for him to include on his sheet. He seemed comfortable with most of the concepts, but we also worked through the concepts that he struggled with (complex numbers)."
