Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went through her review for her test. It was about probability and series. I explained the questions that she was having a hard time with and asked her to solve them by herself to make sure she understood how she has to do them. We solved different problems on each concepts. She understood how she has to do them. She is doing good. She needs to review them and solve them once more by herself to see the differences."
"The student and I started a new unit on Decimals. We began with learning place values, learning how to read decimals, comparing decimals, ordering decimals, and multiplying/dividing by decimals by powers of ten. The student says his curriculum hasn't covered decimals yet, but throughout this lesson and my first assessment, he seems to have a very good understanding of what decimals are and how to apply operations on them. He picked up the material quickly, and doesn't make many mistakes."
"The student and I did a practice exercise on her iPad and then looked at some of her homework--it all involved area and perimeter. The student completed her problems quickly and confidently. She told me that she doesn't like math and feels that she's not good at it, but she did very well. The one thing she can work on is her times tables, which will make doing the problems a bit easier. The student enjoyed writing and drawing on the iPad and on my dry erase board."
"The student and I worked on his homework covering order of operations. Once he got the hang of the process, his accuracy and speed improved. We also reviewed/corrected a math test covering writing linear equations. He seemed to have a problem translating words to math, where he often added a y-intercept term where there shouldn't have been one. We went over the concept once again, and he seemed to understand where he made his mistakes. We reviewed the function machine, and hopefully his retake will be better."
"The student has a test coming up over percentages, interest, sales tax, and converting percents to fractions. He had some problems with converting percents to fractions, but he had a good understanding of the other information."
"We went over problems that involve division. Some examples include averages, grouping, and inventory. We also went over problems that combine multiplication and division. We did some test prep problems with a timer. The student has been working hard on multiplication tables. He is way quicker than when we first met."
