Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student is on spring break, so we reviewed exponents which was what he was struggling with last week. He did a great job with what we reviewed last week and would be ready for an assessment if he was given one on Friday. We also got ahead and worked on negative exponents of entire expressions."
"During this session, the student and I reviewed his math, Spanish, and Biology homework. Specifically, we spent a significant amount of time going over complex fractions, csc & sec functions, photosynthesis, and his new Spanish vocabulary words. We also made flashcards for these new vocab words. Overall, he seems to fully understand the material for his courses and we are still working out having him show all of his work. Although he still sometimes does not show every step, he has been making great improvements."
"The student and I reviewed for his test today. He was very receptive toward the information and not afraid to ask questions for clarification. We revisited the completing the square method, and he has shown improvement in working through the completing the square problems but should continue to practice this before the test. We also discussed imaginary numbers today and how to combine and simplify complex numbers. He did not struggle with the new material and showed a good understanding of how to multiply and simplify algebraic expressions. Before his test, he should make sure he is able to recall the quadratic formula from memory."
"Measures of central tendency. Mean, median, and mode already known in principle. Moved on to introducing the idea of quartiles and creating box and whisker plots from stem-and-leaf plots. Attitude was inquisitive."
"The student and I covered the following topics including but not limited to: Grade 5 Math: prime and composite numbers, prime factor trees, greatest common factor for two and three numbers, least common multiples, multiplying decimal numbers, equivalent fractions, and simplifying fractions. The student was extremely cooperative and made progress to the new material that he was learning. He was able to work the problems independently ,and was able to retain what I was teaching him after some guided prompts."
"The student worked on completing his homework packet. His math assignment was identifying 10 steps east of zero on a number line. He read a fiction passage and figured out the meaning of words from context clues, answered comprehension questions and inferred how the characters felt and why they acted the way they did based on information in the reading. He also completed matching vocabulary words and definitions and dividing the same words into syllables. We played Snap It Up multiplication facts to complete our session."
