Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I met with the student online. She worked on her 2nd assignment that's due on Monday. I will go over her assignment and reconvene tomorrow. I plan to help her complete a study case."
"We covered how to calculate the area of trapezoids. It went really well. The student was very interactive and is doing very well. She is very enthusiastic."
"With the student, we reviewed old exams, focusing on the a variety of problems. After which, I took some problems out of his textbook that covered the same topics. These were from chapters 5 and 7 and covered multiplying and dividing fractions as well as proportions. I gave him two proportion problems for homework."
"During this session, we worked on math topics. We talked about functions and how to graph them and how to define turns in terms of degree measures. She caught on to all the new material quickly."
"Today the student and I worked to solidify her understanding of fractions on the number line. We worked with a new game called Pearl Diver before revisiting other games She enjoys playing that reinforce her skills. Regular practice is key."
"We began the lesson with her recent Math quizzes. First we looked at direct and indirect variation problems. I told her to make sure to include the constant k in the equations for both relationships. After this I had her rearrange the formulas in order to show her how to prove a relationship is direct or indirect; if the numbers always have the same product it is indirect and if they have the same quotient it is direct. After this I had her revise the problems she missed and she was able to correct them. Then we looked at some logarithm problems. I saw that she understood the properties to combine and reconfigure logarithms but she didn't totally understand what they mean and how to get a numerical value from them. I demonstrated by showing how they are the opposite of exponential functions in the same way that exponents and radicals are opposite operations. I gave her an example of each for her to use for reference, and this seemed to help her set up and solve the underlying problem. She did well on problems asking her to simplify logarithmic expressions and then on using exponents raised to logarithms to make them cancel in equations. Finally I had her make a chart for a logarithmic equation to plot a graph from."
