Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed how to perform a factor analysis. We went over the steps in how to actually run the analysis and then how to interpret the output. We also reviewed homework questions and a review question that was used to illustrate how to perform a factor analysis. We talked about an upcoming quiz and reviewed some of the questions that she might be encountered with on the quiz."
"Now that we have moved onto trigonometry I have made it a focus to work on his understanding the sine and cosine and the coordinate system associated with it. So as we delve deeper into the subject I will be constantly reminding and pushing him to know what general triangles and coordinates we are working with. The more he recognizes them the better he will be in the long run. We reviewed his homework that was assigned which mostly had to do with finding the sine, cosine, and tangent ratios and then followed up by using arcsine etc. I will send him some work to have done before next time that requires him to work between both these types of problems. He has a quiz on Friday that he will need to be prepared for with this type of work. We will cover that thoroughly on Thursday."
"The student completed his Math and English homework. I checked his work and pointed out incorrect answers. Then he read his book for 20 minutes. I asked him to bring one a third grade reading level book for the following day."
"The student will retake a test on Monday. We went over his test and spent as much time as was needed on missed questions. Wrote out similar problems to the long discussion time problems at the end of the test and had him do those to show he had a full understanding. Said he felt a lot better about the retake."
"We worked on questions from the workbook that she didn't understand. Also reviewed the algebra concepts that we covered previously, I assigned her two pages out of the workbook to practice with. Briefly, we covered slope and coordinates."
"Today we worked on finding the volume of prisms and then spent time going over practice problems which included probabilities, conversions, scientific notation, and proportions. The student is grasping concepts very well."
