Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"- The student and I practiced plugging in x/y coordinates to different functions to solve for the missing coordinate. - We practiced checking his work by plugging in his answer to determine if the function still holds true. - He is finishing"
"The student recently took an exam covering rational functions. We had been working hard on those. We reworked the problems he missed and he knows the material. I discussed with him that I believe his mistakes on the exam were from rushing through the problems and that he should take care not to rush and use scratch paper, then write a clean solution on the exam. He may then identify his own errors and correct them before turning in the exam."
"Worked with the student on sequences and series. Had a good understanding already, but worked through more examples that she became proficient at knowing when to use each formula."
"The student said that her teacher emailed and said that she got the harder questions correct on her quiz, but not the easy questions. She will get the quiz back and we will review it. Today we started working on her next lessons, which will be multiplying and dividing integers. She was relieved to see the rules are simpler for multiplication and division of integers, and did well with both basic problems as well as word problems. We then did a review of adding and subtracting decimals and fractions, and a few problems involving negative numbers in the decimals and fractions. She is not confident in her ability to do the fraction and decimal problems, so this will be something we will continue to work on and build confidence. She will have Tuesday's homework available and emailed to me prior to the session so we can work on it during the session."
"The student started on his math homework which he was able to do independently. We worked on his grammar worksheet and studied for his vocabulary test. Next, we previewed his science lesson for tomorrow."
"Today the student and I studied addition and subtraction flashcards and practiced different tricks and strategies, such as first adding ones place and then tens place in a problem. She also completed 3.5 pages of her math homework packet, which included multiplying by 0, 1, and 2 mostly, along with 3-digit addition and subtraction problems. I noticed she would gain a lot from memorizing fact families."
