Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I checked the homework the student had to complete for today. He did well, but he will have to be careful with his subtraction of integers and follow the rules. We worked on patterns, multiplication and division of integers, and the coordinate system. We completed all the topics in Chapter 1. I left the student with some work to complete."
"We worked on writing equations of parallel/perpendicular lines in point slope form/slope intercept form, writing linear equations from a word problem, finding average rate of change, and transformations of graphs. I also showed her how to use a graphing calculator to do some of the problems. She was able to do some of the problems on her own. We had a really good session! I am proud of how well the student is doing!"
"He began the session by working on the Unit 6 review questions. Then we did a lot of review on different properties of logarithms. He is having success at doing each of these things in isolation, but more trouble when they are all mixed up like they will be on the exam. Tomorrow is our last day to practice, so we'll spend time just trying to put all the parts together. Hopefully the review and the improved performance in quarters 3 and 4 will help him!"
"Today the student took a quiz over the properties, order of operations, and fractions. She did pretty well, we just had to review dividing fractions and multiplying fractions; we then we moved onto decimals. Next Monday she will have a quiz over fractions and decimals, and then we will cover integers."
"The student worked on place value, expanded form, standard form, double digit addition, telling time in different ways, writing a given time, and elapsed time. We worked in the 2nd grade math book and then used 2nd grade math app. The student did great! She was shy, but was focused and worked really hard!"
"We worked on the review for her algebra final. We covered the following topics: graphing quadratic equations, using the quadratic formula, factoring polynomials, multiplying polynomials, and combining like terms."
