Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"On Wednesday, we spent our one-hour session going over the real number line diagram and the subsets within the real number line. We discussed whole numbers, integers, natural numbers, rational numbers, irrational numbers, and the relationships between each classification. I quizzed the student with nearly 20 questions from section 9-2 of his math text book, where he was given a number from the real number line and asked to classify the number using the subsets we studied. He did very well. I will continue to provide supplemental assignments for him to do over the weekend. He enjoyed and correctly completed all of the worksheets I supplemented last week."
"Covered addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of polynomials, as well as how to factor trinomials."
"The student and I went over how to graph the sine and cosine functions. He graphed the concepts very well after working on several examples together and then on his own."
"I covered graphing inequalities. The student was struggling most with graphing the line from the inequality. His attitude was fine. I showed him how to approach graphing the line with finding the y intercept and slope. I also gave him test-taking strategies. He was able to point out some of his mistakes, which was very good. He is also good at knowing where to shade and whether the line is solid or dotted."
"Today, we covered graphing inequalities, solving inequalities, and graphing absolute value. The student seemed to understand the fundamentals. He and I used the teach-back technique, which entailed having him explain how to do problems to me, step by step, after we did them together so that I could be sure he understood what he was doing. He said it helped him understand it more, especially when we used it facing the challenge problems, so I anticipate we will use this technique more in the future!"
"Today, I continued helping the student with his assessment exam practice. We worked diligently on the math section. With my guidance, he was able to make it through many questions."
