Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Went over fractions, decimals, and percents in more detail today, covering an extensive independent practice module and one full quiz (student did well--10/10 on it). Drilled on concepts of manipulating percents to re-write as fractions or decimals, and how to approach solve word problems involving percents. Went over several multiplication tables and many long division problems to cement skills. Reviewed concepts of multiplying or dividing by 10 or multiples of 10. Assigned the following for the student to complete before meeting next week: 1) Complete rest of independent practice and second full quiz on fractions, decimals and percents; 2) Watch and complete lesson on primes and composites; 3) Go back and finish rest of independent practice and quiz modules under estimates."
"We began working on word problems with addition through 20. We continued to use manipulatives to review addition facts to 20. The student's fluency continues to improve."
"The girls have a quiz over elapsed time on Wednesday. We spent the entire session working on practice questions. Both girls did well answering the questions."
"During this session, the student and I reviewed his math, Spanish, and biology homework. Specifically, we spent significant amount of time going over complex fractions, csc and sec functions, photosynthesis, and his new Spanish vocabulary words. We also made flashcards for these new vocab words. Overall, he seems to fully understand the material for his courses, and we are still working out having him show all of his work. Although he still sometimes does not show every step, he has been making great improvements."
"The student and I reviewed for his test today. He was very receptive toward the information and not afraid to ask questions for clarification. We revisited the completing the square method. He has shown improvement in working through the completing the square problems but should continue to practice this before the test. We also discussed imaginary numbers today and how to combine and simplify complex numbers. He did not struggle with the new material and showed a good understanding of how to multiply and simplify algebraic expressions. Before his test, he should make sure he is able to recall the quadratic formula from memory."
"We discussed some previous topics (ANOVA) and review that the student wants me to do. We are meeting again Sunday at 12."
