Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"In this session, we reviewed using exponents to write out large or small numbers as well as some solving equations with fractions. After some review we went on to unit conversions and scientific notation. By the end of the session she seemed to have a good grasp on the material."
"The student completed her homework packet, reviewed math facts, and place value. She did an excellent job on all. She completed a practice sheet on shape id. We also reviewed addition, place value, and number lines."
"The student and I had a great session today! We went over factoring quadratic equations. We began our session with a quick concept lesson on how to approach the problems and solve them step-by-step. While going over the lesson, he understood the material very well and was eager to continue with practice problems. We spent the rest of the session going over a variety of practice problems. He has a great understanding of factoring quadratic equations, to the point where he can solve the problems very quickly in his head. To maintain the concept, however, I continued to encourage him to practice solving using both methods: doing the math in his head and again showing all the work step-by-step. It was awesome to see his confidence while studying today. Looking forward to more great sessions!"
"Monday we worked on rational fractions; fractions that have functions in them. The student did a really good job of working through the material and grasped it quite quickly, remembering and building on concepts we covered last week. He also seemed more comfortable and more engaged in the work."
"Today, we worked on solving polynomial equations using algebraic manipulations and graphing polynomials by looking at the roots, points of discontinuity, and the leading terms. The student excelled at these areas! Then, we introduced new material on long division and synthetic division. The student nearly completed her upcoming assignment on these topics!"
"We worked on some of the concepts that come before learning integrals. The student understands all of the material but is having a hard time using that and problem solving once a question is asked. Overall she is smart and good at math. She worked on a few homework questions as well that were simplifying multiple quadratics and using sums."
