Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The concepts that we covered mostly were adding mixed fractions and fraction conversion. The student, initially, struggled at first to compute problems regarding subtracting mixed numbers, but he was a quick learner. The student's attitude was very receptive and attentive throughout the whole session. I included common strategies that should be taught in 4th grade like for example: whatever that is multiplied on the top should be multiplied on the bottom. I saw his scores and grades. So, after we worked on his homework, we delved into his tests and I explained to him what and why he did not get the answer correct. The wins are that he is very attentive, very fast learner, and is very smart individual who has the potential to be the best in his class."
"During our time together, the student and I worked hard at completing her homework, consisting of adding and subtracting fractions, and figuring out the common denominator in the process. After we completed her homework, we then completed a plethora of practice problems, consisting of both numerical and word problems, assessing her understanding of adding and subtracting fractions. Although there were just minor areas to iron out, by the end of the session, she had a complete understanding of how to add and subtract fractions, so I look forward to hearing about her successes on any future assessments of the material."
"We thoroughly went over the student's math homework together and discussed some strategies that would help her with solving word problems more easily. The student needs to give herself plenty of clean paper to show her work and focus on extracting the important information from problems before just guessing what the answers might be."
"Today we worked on the concept of factoring higher order polynomials. We spent some time going over the concepts and then walked through his homework and a few extra problems from the book."
"The student and I continued to discuss and work through problems involving imaginary numbers and the square root of negative numbers, multiplying by conjugates, and some limiting reagent problems."
"We reviewed solving equations that have radicals and went over functions. We learned about the vertical line test, domain, range, and the concepts of "one-to-one" and "onto"."
