Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I finished reviewing for her math final. I taught her several things that she had missed in class, like binomial probability, polynomial long division, and polynomial expansion."
"Our last session was on Wednesday night, and we finished her study guide. I showed her some shortcuts for graphing parabolas. We also went over distance, rate and time word problems."
"The student has a final exam sometime next week. His teacher has started to hand out practice worksheets to help the kids prepare. We completed one of those worksheets today. Most of the problem focused on graphing and/or writing the equation of a line when given a point and a slope or two points. As we started to work through the problems, he started to remember how to do them. In the next few sessions, we will continue to drill in preparation for the final."
"The student and I continued preparing for her final, but she also had to finish the rest of her homework packet. While doing the homework packet, she got a lot of practice with exponents, radicals, and factoring quadratic functions. We also learned about factoring a difference of squares. She is definitely improving on factoring and getting much faster at doing it. After she finished the homework packet, we went back to the review packet and we worked on finding multiplicative inverses and using those to solve a system of equations. She does remarkably well with all of the practice problems."
"The student has an important test this week covering all the material in the class so far (CH 1-6). We spent today reviewing two areas she has trouble with: word problems and polynomial long division. I've asked her to complete the cumulative review worksheet in her book and we will go over it on Skype on Monday evening."
"The student and I went over a couple of tests that he had previously taken and re-did the problems, demonstrating how he has fixed the foundation and can now answer the questions correctly and confidently. He is a very rapid learner, with practice, and is adapting to the new techniques he's learning quite fast."
