Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We continued to cover addition and subtraction facts to 20. We used flashcards as well as manipulatives to review before doing word problems. The student's fluency continues to improve. We also reviewed vocabulary in word problems."
"Completed a double math homework assignment. The first topic was computing the perimeter of rectangles, determining the length of a side of a rectangle given the perimeter and length of one side (double that side, subtract that from the perimeter, then divide by 2), and writing the expressions for the perimeters of regular triangles, pentagons, and heptagons. The second topic involved determining the number of combinations of N options from one column with M options from the other using organized lists and tree diagrams."
"Assisted with math report (writing-aided math). Assisted with math homework, multiplying/dividing polynomial equations, locating hori. and vert. asymptotes, holes, and graphical location."
"The concepts covered were logarithms, matrices, and exponents. We did some SAT review questions and reviewed each concept and formula, and then we applied them to solve SAT practice problems. The student was very confident during the entire online session."
"The student has a final coming up next week. So, this week, her teacher had assigned her a long homework assignment of 17 pages of review problems on everything since day 1. The topics we went over today were piecewise functions, functions, inverse functions, and some of logarithms. She found the session very useful because she was able to bring back a lot of things that she forgot a while ago. She felt good about the topics we did today, and we are planning to continue on more of these practice problems tomorrow."
"Today was the first of our two sessions focused on Pre-Calc review for Tuesday's exam. We worked on several problems from the review packet, mostly trigonometry based. The student continues to make good progress. One area to work on is inverse trigonometric functions - they may not represent a huge portion of the material, but it will be worth going over next time. Next session will likely be a more general review focused on the more conceptual (rather than numerical) problems."
