Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed function notation and talked strategy as to how to tackle the exams. I will be sending some notes to help her for the exam. She seems to have understood the material well."
"Although I usually tutor the student in Chemistry, we covered her homework on electron configuration very quickly. So, as she needed help in Algebra, I helped her prepare for her exam on Monday. We covered factoring using the quadratic method, factoring by grouping, and addition and subtraction of two cubes. After showing and explaining some key equations, we mostly just did various problems in the chapter so that she could get practice."
"The student and I worked through her algebra 2 homework during this session. It was basic algebra, more of a review of algebra 1 than algebra 2. We worked on equations of lines in slope intercept form and solving for intercepts and slopes. We also discussed parallel and perpendicular lines."
"Today we went over lesson 77 which included solving inequalities with graphing. We also covered proportions, percent of change, direct variation and the proportional constant of variation. There were also problems reducing radicals and finding the volume of prisms. The student was really good at reducing the radicals and writing and graphing the equation of a line. She did struggle a little on graphing the inequalities at first but by the end seemed to understand them better."
"The student and I completed her weekend homework on bar graphs. Then I had her take 3 timed previously made quizzes, in order to practice her test taking skills. She did well completing the quizzes on time, but made small mistakes on each of them. We discussed taking time and checking answers, and in the future I plan to work on these topics more."
"We continued with counting money. Her teachers taught her an adding method to be used when figuring out how much change the customer should get back. So we went over a worksheet provided by the teacher using the adding method. She did well, she got the hang of it and by the last question, she was able to do most of the math without drawing pictures."
