Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"First session, mostly a meet and greet and diagnostic session. Worked on exponents, scientific notation, and order of operations."
"We reviewed for the midterm exam. Student was able to get 29/30 on the practice test, with relatively little guidance. He will take the exam on Monday. We wrapped up chapter five."
"We went through the homework and practiced more percentage problems. We talked about and practiced problems related to finding the slope of a line, finding the area of a sector, and surface area."
"Today, we went over starter problems that mainly had to do finding the factors by making an expression equal to zero. We went over the factoring process, as well as the quadratic equation and did the examples that I left the student with. This time, I left her with four distance and rate word problems to do on her own."
"We worked on negative exponents today. We are going to meet again on Friday to do a little review of what we covered today as well as scientific notation which is the topic he missed from being absent from school."
"Today we covered factoring. We worked through some of the student's online questions on factoring and discussed the various techniques required in detail. I suggested to her that the best way to improve at factoring would be to practice matching the right technique to the problem (applying difference of squares when appropriate, re-arranging terms, etc.). She appeared to improve throughout our session and seems to have a much better grasp of factoring than she was able to gain from class."
