Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student had improved even more at graphing lines based on given equations, with only horizontal and vertical lines still presenting a challenge for him, so that was where we focused our attention today. After that, we reversed things and began finding equations based on given points."
"We covered proportions and mean, median, and mode. We completed the packet he was assigned for the summer. We reviewed positive and negative integers, areas of triangles, and order of operations. He has been doing very well, especially in adding and subtracting positive and negative integers. Some additional practice on order of operations was assigned."
"We covered simplifying algebraic expressions that include exponents. The student is comprehending using inverse operations to simplify the types of algebraic expressions referenced above. He seems to be making the progress needed to master this concept. He was assigned making predictions using ratios and representing relationships. There are no concerns from this particular session."
"We covered chapter 3 (lesson 4) in the lesson plan. The student was quick to catch onto new topics, and she understood each unit before moving onto the next. She had some good occasional questions about the units. We hope to cover 2-3 units next time, so she will need to work thoroughly this next week."
"We started working problems in polar coordinates. Began by first sketching regions given polar limits. We then worked a few example problems illustrating how polar coordinates can simplify difficult rectangular integrals."
"The student and I met for our last session last Tuesday. We set out to do an overview session of some of the major concepts he will be encountering in 6th-grade, and were relatively successful in doing so. We began the session by doing a quick English review, going over primarily the difference between similes and metaphors. We spent about a third of our time doing this, before we moved on to talking about how the American government system works. We talked about the tripartite division and about checks and balances, and then we did a quiz from his book on the subject. We then turned to a quick geography lesson and concluded by talking about the science of flying. We made paper airplanes and I tried to show him why they worked the way they did and how each different style makes the plane fly in a different way. It was a great final session."
"We covered confidence intervals, for sample means and proportions. We also did hypotheses test for proportions, t-distributions, and normal distributions. Student made 90 and above on all her assignments we cover today. Overall this was a successful session."
"Today, we worked on her Algebra I review packet. We finished the first page of it, which covered exponent rules and order of operations without a calculator. She did very well today."
"The student and I practiced derivatives. Once we practiced more with examples, she became very great."
"Today we worked on word problems involving addition and subtraction through four digits. We also worked on rounding to the nearest hundred, ten thousand, and million. The student continues to exhibit progress."
"Today we covered a mix of geometry (volume and surface area problems), number theory (mental math type problems), and algebra (using geometry questions to introduce the concept of variables). On the whole, the student seemed to grasp the concepts well."
"The student and I covered statistics concepts from the core curriculum and reviewed ratios and expressions. We went over homework his school gave him for the summer and we went over working with prime numbers and roots. We also touched upon some word problems about coding and chess."
