Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today, the student took a practice quiz. We also reviewed system of equations, data analysis, percentages, and interpreting graphs. He did well on interpreting graphs. We will keep tracking to improve his performance."
"Tonight, the student was able to complete one homework assignment at a 100% accuracy and then part of another. The first assignment covered solving quadratic equations, specifically with the quadratic formula. She did very well, and she was able to catch her mistakes from her previous attempts at the assignment. The second lesson covered solving more complex equations involving one or more radicals. We discussed a plan of attack for these type of problems, and again, she did very well."
"The student got two assignments completed today. For science, she had to prepare a slide for a presentation on the immune system. Her slide was on the tonsils and their role as immune tissue. She did a good job capturing a lot of important information on her slide. For her global perspectives class, she had to collect some information on the business practices of a corporation. She moved through this quickly. Overall, we moved at a good pace."
"In this session, the student and I went over decimal arithmetic, absolute values, and how to find the least common multiple. I left him some decimal practice problems to do before our next session. He seemed focused this session. Overall, I think it went well."
"The student needed help with SPSS for one way and two way repeated measures ANOVA. We went over her homework assignment and made sure she understood what the IV and DV were as well as the levels. We went through examples of how to set up the tests in SPSS and how to interpret the output and write up the results. I emailed her notes on each test procedure when we finished, along with links to articles with images or instructions on exactly how to set up the tests."
"We went over the student's previous test, which included speed (distance/time) problems and a variety of other subjects. He seems to know the material pretty well but sometimes makes small arithmetical mistakes (switching signs or adding incorrectly), so he just needs to pay closer attention to dotting his i's and crossing his t's. Luckily, he is an enthusiastic student as well. At the end of the session, I taught him the basics of conic sections."
