Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We looked at his summer packet. He had made some good progress but had a few issues. We talked about them and he is going to go back and try some problems again for us to look at on Friday."
"We covered the first half of the student's summer math packet and reviewed in depth the concepts covered. He picked up on the skills very quickly, it seems easier than the content of the PSAT we prepared for earlier in the spring."
"The student and I covered inequalities using addition/subtraction, and multiplication/division. We also worked on simplifying ratios, and various word problems."
"First meeting with the student. We worked on algebra concepts that she was unsure about from the previous week, which included solving inequalities and compound inequalities. Although she knew which steps to take in these problems, simple mistakes sometimes kept her from getting correct answers. However, she was able to accurately graph solutions with fluency. We then reviewed homework together for this week on solving absolute value equations. After some initial confusion, she was able to apply solving steps easily. Since I took note of her propensity to make small errors (leaving off a negative; writing down the problem inaccurately; neglecting to distribute fully), I will be looking for some strategies for next session to begin addressing this. She had a positive attitude."
"The student brought to the session a list of problems from the text that she needed help with. We covered all of those problems and reviewed concepts as needed. Overall, I think she felt the session was very helpful to her understanding of the subject."
"Today I solely worked with the student on the new section in Algebra. Also, he skipped the pre-algebra courses, so we are going to take some time in the next coming weeks to review, familiarize, and reinforce foundation concepts. The section focused on polynomial analysis with emphasis on the distributive property. One concept from pre-algebra he needed to focus on was how exponentials behave. We started working on proofs as well."
