Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Student and I focused on fractions. Student learned and practiced how to find the lowest common denominator, reducing fractions to the lowest form, writing fractions in the highest form, and utilizing the order of operations with fractions. Student will study her times tables at home to help her identify common denominators quicker. Student is making great progress and is understanding concepts covered."
"The student did a great job with the amount of work she finished. We finished a 20 page story together. I emphasized how I'll always help if she doesn't know how or doesn't understand a concept. She felt encouraged to continue. She completed three pages of math involving patterns, counting by 5 & 10, and labeling odds & evens."
"Today, the student worked on volume and surface area with a variety of solids. After she finished her homework, I gave her some additional practice. The second student practiced working on geometric and arithmetic sequences."
"Today, we spent a brief amount of time reviewing the student's chemistry project. He has a presentation soon and I gave him pointers on public speaking. We then spent most of the time working on a review of his math packet. The student had very little trouble with the material. He needed slight help remembering how to solve functions and adding/subtracting fractions."
"The student and I spent time reviewing for her state assessment test in geometry. This involved covering a wide variety of topics that she had learned throughout the year. The student seems fairly confident about her math abilities, and has obviously grown significantly since I started working with her. She still struggles with word problems, but is now capable of recalling the right way to solve a wide variety of problems. She still needs more practice with trigonometry and circles, but overall is doing well. I also spent some of this time reviewing more general test-taking strategies that are not limited to just geometry, such as eliminating obviously wrong answers before deciding between two potentially correct answers and making sure not to spend too much time on any one problem."
"Tonight, we started by reviewing box and whisker plots as the student said she wanted additional practice on them. Then, we went over the released test to help study for her upcoming test. I left her with that test to complete by our next session."
