Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I ran through corrections on her test. She had one of the highest scores in the class. Dealing with factoring, and ultimately utilizing a few methods for solving for variables by factoring polynomials, we reviewed problems she had made mistakes on. While she mostly understands major concepts, I advised her to slow down a bit to reduce the number of small errors she makes. By reviewing problems, we identified topics of valuable review that brought her a better understanding of what factoring techniques to use and when. She did a great job solving problems with very little help from me by the end of the session."
"Today we covered stem and leaf plots. We worked through a warm up, did some practice problems and finished up with an assessment."
"We reviewed his course's grading policy to set realistic goals for the end of the year. We touched base about his test on Integration by parts last Friday. I then taught him how to find limits using L'Hopital's Rule. He completed part of his homework for the week before we moved on to solving separable differential equations. We discussed that separable differential equations of the form dy/dt=ky solve to exponential growth. We practiced solving a couple separable differential equations."
"We started some elementary math today! I found out the student knows simple addition, but not how to do it vertically yet, and can't count yet above 1000. We will keep working with numbers."
"Student A was behind a few lessons, so we completed lesson 40 together and introduced the investigation 4 concepts. I worked with Student B on about half of his lesson from the previous day, which he completed on his own for me to check the answers tomorrow. He was having a little trouble with determining how to calculate the percentage of something, so I helped him review the concept. Student C and I just started lesson 41 and reviewed the concept of adding fractions with the same denominator. He seems to understand visual representations of fractions better than words because it was easier for him to solve the problems that had a diagram."
"For this session, the student practiced math operations skills and word problems. He also read from his Diary of the Wimpy Kid book and wrote sentences describing the events in the story. The student seemed to recall events in the story better when he reviewed the information after each paragraph and then wrote a comprehension sentence. Great job!"
