Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During this session, we continued working on equations of the line with inequalities and absolute values as well as graphing these equations. The student is doing really well, and there has been a drastic improvement in her basic algebra skills since I had first started working with her. She is working through the problems more quickly and precisely than before."
"We completed the chapter 4 problems and started the chapter 5 problems in the review packet. These problems focused on graphing functions. The student was very engaged and seemed to understand the concepts after I explained them."
"We reviewed extensively for his upcoming math final. We worked through review assignments his teacher assigned and talk about test taking strategies. The other student and I just reviewed her fetal pig dissection information so she could study properly."
"He needs to score a 90+ to receive credit. The student does understand all knowledge required. We reviewed practice exam part 1 and three topic-practice tests today. For homework, the student should re-do the part 1 practice test along with completing the Chapter reviews in the algebra textbook."
"We worked through a packet of problems she had to prepare for algebra. The student seemed comfortable with most of the material and said that having a tutor to walk through problems with her was very beneficial."
"This was a good session where we did lots of review for the test. At first, I reviewed the homework the student had completed. She had a lot of trouble with the word problems so we went to the algebra books and went over how to tackle them. We later completed the test that we had started the day before. We reviewed and did countless problems on functions and graphing."
"We went over lots of homework assignments. Some statistics was introduced. We went over graphing inequalities, system of equations, and other review. The student is really getting the hang of it, she just needs to be more confident in herself."
"The student and I reviewed for his upcoming final. We did a quick review of the major topics and then did a mini final and he performed well. He is taking a break for June to July and said he will resume sessions in August."
"The student worked through some practice problems in her algebra book so that I could get a sense of what she knows and doesn't know. I will suggest another algebra book for her by next session. Her homework is to take the rest of the unit tests in her algebra booklet and mark all the problems she doesn't understand."
"We worked a great deal on combining like terms and distributing. Then we worked on solving two step algebra problems. And then we combined them to work on solving algebra problems where he had to distribute and combine like terms. He was doing so much better by the end of the session at solving multi-step equations, not combining terms across the equals sign, and being more aware of negatives."
"The student did better with finding area on his most recent homework: triangles, trapezoids, and circles. Today we began working with algebra tiles to help visualize place value and equations, as well as going over properties of exponents. He seemed to understand the properties, and he loved working with the manipulatives."
"The student and I went over the first 4 chapters of his algebra book, which were somewhat of a review for him. We covered the main lecture material/key points and then did some practice problems to refresh his memory. He did fairly well, as much of it was review, but forgot a few little concepts which we worked on him re-learning. I will be sending him some practice problems to complete over the next couple weeks that we will correct each session."
