Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We worked on his Spring Break math packet. This packet is 20 pages long, and his teacher suggested he do 2 pages per day. We completed a little over 2 pages together: area, fractions, and word problems. He did a good job with the problems."
"She reported that she got a 100 (!!!) on her last test. Awesome. We worked on a worksheet for an upcoming test and covered exponential and logarithmic equations. We did word problems covering compound interest, population growth, exponential decay, sound, and depreciation. She did very well. We covered the "rule of 72s." She has gained speed and confidence. It shows in her homework and it is wonderful to see her get rewarded for her hard work on her tests."
"Today we covered volumes of solids using cross sections and volumes of solids of revolution using disks and washers. She was having the most trouble with washers, but after practicing a couple of problems she fully understood it. The student is still motivated and working hard despite it being the end of her senior year. This was our first session after her spring break, so I haven't seen any recent grades."
"Today the student and I worked on equations of circles, distance formula, defining functions, and midpoint formula. She did not struggle except some minor math mistakes. She maintained a positive attitude and was engaged in the material. We reviewed a few strategies to help save time on the exam. The textbook offered additional practice and I am available to have another session before the test. I watched as she completed each problem successfully. I am very pleased with the progress that we made in our session."
"Today, I gave Student 1 practice on solving system of equations using elimination. Now that he is moving slower and being more careful with his work, he is getting far more of them correct. I gave Student 2 practice on finding missing angles in triangles, as well as practice in the exterior angle theorem of triangles. She is doing just fine in her work."
"The concepts that were covered were the same as the two past sessions. I drilled the student with problems from the book. The majority of the problems were correct. I believe the strategy for him is to not miss a single step when solving for problems, that way he can get the right results. I will see if I can contact his math teacher to see if he can provide me of a sample of the exam so I have an idea of what could have been the area where he was stumped."
