Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over chapter 7 for the Algebra test on Friday. In chapter 7, we reviewed dividing equations and real world application. I think that she will do great on her test this week!"
"I wrote 5 practice reviews for the topics the student struggled with on his last test. He was able to complete 3 of these for today's session and was almost 100% successful with the later questions on the review sheets. He correctly answered the old questions on the test paper which he previously got wrong or was unable to do. I'm giving him more practice questions from his textbook to complete over the holiday to solidify his learning. He did really well today. We will complete the other 2 review sheets at our next session."
"The student and I went over his chapter 3 review problems, focusing on Optimization and Rolle's/Mean Value Theorem. He did well with most of the work. He has a test next week, and we are planning to meet Sunday afternoon to review."
"Today's lesson with the student went well. I gave her miscellaneous problems and tested her ability to find the answer. I gave her problems involving inequalities, averages, and rate problems. They were mainly word problems so that she could understand how the concepts worked in real world. She was very receptive to the material. The student is much more interested in math when she can do word problems. I am leaving her with homework. Overall, the lesson went very well."
"Reviewed topics and concerns about the upcoming math exam (Algebra) and the SAT. I wanted to make sure that time management and stress weren't issues to address in addition to the math itself and the student is doing well with both. He is doing better on exams but still makes minor mistakes. I reviewed trigonometry (inverse trig and trig identities) and natural log (how to remove logs and exponents). I also explained where pi and e come from and why they are important. I gave him a basic explanation since it is hard to explain it without using higher math topics. Finally I suggested resources that will help with the SAT (a small handbook of topics)."
"In our first session today, the student and I worked on several different math topics. We started with addition of three digit numbers. Then we worked on subtraction with regrouping. She had taken a test at school that she did not perform well on so we reviewed the questions and answers. Lastly, we completed a lesson of subtraction number sentences and took a quiz. The student received 100% on the quiz at the end of the lesson. It was suggested for the student to work on flashcards daily and purchase a set of tangrams."
