Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on finding the opposite value and absolute value of integers. We worked on the distributive property and distributing signs and values to each number to solve an equation. The student learned how to convert signs and to distribute the properties in order to solve equations. The student has a wonderful attitude and is making great progress."
"The student and I went over the next section for his exam. We went over solving problems that could use factorials, unities, midpoint formula, and probability. We went in-depth into many of the problems and discussed the comprehension of each of the types of problems."
"Student 1 & I covered basic algebraic foundations once more. He is getting better at recognizing the relationship between the slope (multiple of x) and where the equation is heading. I left Student 2 with some extra fraction practice, applying them to the current concept. I also left him with some vocabulary words to look up, because he might see them more going forward. The parent says Student 2's grades have improved significantly."
"We worked on the addition of three integers simultaneously. We also covered how to name, and identify the geometric qualities of some standard 3D shapes. The student is showing great signs of progress. She has a lot of enthusiasm towards the topics covered."
"The student needed some support with preparing for her upcoming test. We reviewed how to identify parallel lines and how to calculate and identify lines with undefined/zero slopes. She had no trouble re-writing given equations into standard y = mx + b form in order to determine if they had the same slopes (i.e. , parallel). We discussed that lines with undefined slopes are vertical lines (i.e. , x = some number) and have the same x-coordinates but different y-values; similarly, lines with zero slopes are horizontal lines (i.e. , y = some number) and have the same y-coordinates but different x-values. I gave her some made-up practice problems for identifying parallel lines and calculating undefined/zero slopes with two given points; I also encouraged her to practice graphing the lines. She caught on very quickly to the concepts we covered and asked questions when needed. She was very engaged and focused during the session."
"We played a review game with adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing fractions. The student still needs a little review on the more advanced parts of this, but generally demonstrated he understood the main concepts."
