Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student reviewed how to add and subtract fractions with common denominators. Then, we moved on to new material on adding and subtracting fractions and mixed numbers with uncommon denominators."
"Today the student and I worked on her algebra 2 review packet for her exam this week. We also worked on her lit homework and her world history homework. He seemed to be understanding the material pretty well; we just need to focus more attention on the math concepts she does not understand."
"The student had an upcoming test on the chapter of quadratic equations and functions, so we reviewed a couple of exercises from each section. So far, she seems to know a lot of the material. However, when it came to graphing functions, she seemed to have a little trouble. Once I showed her how to do a few problems, she was able to understand how to graph functions. I am confident that she will pass her test. There's no other concerns as of now."
"We covered how to plot functions on a graph. We did this by first making a T chart and then solving for y. Once we had our values, we would plot them on the graph to form our line. We then looked at the graph and talked about what domain and range were, as well as what the y-intercept and end behavior were on the graph. We also worked on subtracting, multiplying, and reducing fractions because a lot of the problems had fractional parts involved. She informed me that on her last homework she did she only missed one question, which gave her an 83%. She has a quiz tomorrow that she feels really good about going into."
"This very productive session consisted of the student and I reviewing multiplication tables (using worksheets presented by the teacher), as well as working ahead in the course content, to discussing angles (particularly, obtuse, acute, right, etc.)."
"We worked through a review packet. Because it was a review, I worked on being tougher than usual and letting him work through problems himself. He took some time to remember some things we worked on together, which worried me a bit, but he also displayed some grit."
