Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I reviewed for her algebra II make-up exam and tested each other. She felt more confident since she was able to test with me. She made a perfect score."
"We reviewed for the math test on the property of numbers and math identities. The liquid density lab is complete."
"Reviewed for chapter test. Solved quadratic equations using quadratic equation factoring and completing the square. Simplified rational numbers. Found complex conjugates and products."
"The student and I spent the first hour of the session prepping for his test tomorrow on circle properties and arc and angle relationships. We spent particular time focusing on secant relationships, graphing circles and writing equations of the circle from the graph. Lastly, we spent the final half an hour reviewing for his final exam. We did several problems on his teacher provided review packet. In particular, we discussed SOHCAHTOA, FOIL and factoring quadratics, and arc lengths and degrees as they compare to the area and circumference."
"We worked on the student's test review today, covering polynomial arithmetic, basic geometry, and factoring of several different types. She was a bit challenged with quadratic equations, however she has not had much practice yet and I think she just needs to get a feel for them. Her attitude was good today. I left her with a guide on how to complete quadratic equations that she can use for the next week until her test."
"The student wanted to review algebra concepts to prepare for his upcoming final. We started out by using a worksheet he was given, which had problems involving systems of equations and quadratic equations. He had no difficulty setting up the systems and was able to factor most of the quadratic equations, but he hesitated when he ran into a quadratic in which one of the solutions was zero. I explained to him how to identify quadratic equations with zero as a solution and had him explain it again in his own words. Later, we touched on tips for handling rational equations and how to use the vertex form of quadratic functions."
