Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student got an A on her module 6 test! She has not gotten the results for her 9 weeks test yet, but she said that it was easy for her. We reviewed her homework, which was on word problems and linear functions. Then we went through independent practice problems for 7.1 (arithmetic sequences) and 7.2 (adding, subtracting, and multiplying linear functions). She did great with both of these sections!"
"The student and I focused on mostly GCF during this session. She has a midterm coming up, so we completed another worksheet of practice. Factoring binomials and trinomials and implementing the quadratic formula was our main focus. She is really improving in all levels of algebra. The county test and midterm is back to back next week. Our next sessions will consist of practice of new material and a review of old material."
"We went over the chapter on linear equations and inequalities, such as graphing inequalities, absolute value, and slope of the equations. We also went over the concepts of substitution and solving systems by graphing. We went over some concepts on mixed word problems."
"We began the session with multi step equations. Next, we worked on solving compound inequalities and graphing them on number lines. He did very well with these problems and remembered when to use an open or closed circle. We ended the session with a new concept: finding percent increase or decrease. We will continue working on this concept in the next session."
"Monday: The student and I went over the homework she had and answered any questions about the problems she didn't understand. Wednesday: We went over and reviewed problems in her book that were similar to the ones she would have on the test. After going through problems concerning scientific notation and operations with exponents, she was feeling more confident about her test the following day."
"Today the student worked on solving two variable math problems and absolute value formula problems as well. He did a good job; he just has to work on showing the steps. In today's session, I flipped the roles, and had him be the teacher and teach me. I did this to see if he actually understood why he was doing what he was doing."
