Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Covered solving equations and proportions. The student struggles with identifying concepts and solving with discipline. Tomorrow we will have a timer and two shorter sessions separated by an hour break."
"We covered one of the student's review sheets and some additional problems. He knows how to do most of the kinds of problems by himself. He has more review problems to ."
"The student is having difficulty graphing inequalities. I realized she had some trouble understanding inequalities in general, so we spent some time making sure she became comfortable with inequalities so we could move on to graphing."
"The student has a quiz coming up. We reviewed concepts and drilled on problems. He seems well prepared for the quiz. His written work is becoming neater and more organized, which is a sign he is more interested."
"We used online websites to work on qualitative comparison questions in order to prepare the student for an entrance exam into a summer program she is looking to take. I introduced her to systems of equations, which we will work more on in the future."
"We went over correlation and causation for Algebra, along with positive change, negative change, and no change. In Biology we reviewed DNA and Messenger RNA. We reviewed organizational and note taking skills for the 2nd semester."
"We covered practice questions for the student's final exam. He understood the material very well, and was enthusiastic. I have no concerns from this session. I pointed out a couple of different things to help him solve problems easier."
"Today, the student and I reviewed how to calculate equations for lines that are parallel or perpendicular to given lines/equations. She did very well. We went over her last homework assignment and reviewed the questions with which she was having trouble."
"Went over exponent rules and polynomials. We might meet again before his quiz depending on whether he wants to review the material or move ahead to new stuff. He picked up on the concepts quickly and was very attentive."
"We reviewed decimal and fractions with practice problems. I also left the student some reference sheets to refer back to with examples of the core rules. Then we did a review of solving equations for the unknown variable."
"Worked with the student today on practice problems on polynomial division. It took some time, but he really started to understand the process. I recommended more practice in order to get a more firm grasp before his quiz."
"Excellent session - covered all of the make-up work for the student. We covered cross multiplication, distribution, rational/irrational solutions, and infinite vs impossible solutions."
