Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed how to factor sums and differences of squares and cubes. We also reviewed how to evaluate radicals and the rules of imaginary numbers."
"We went over a review for the student's upcoming Algebra 2 test. We focused most of our work on equations (manipulating by using standard, point-slope, and slope-intercept forms; parallel/ perpendicular lines; inverse functions). He did very well, and we discussed checking his work to make sure no errors were occurring (using the correct sign, distributing correctly). Overall, he showed a good grasp and understanding of the concepts on the review and was able to manipulate the equations well."
"We reviewed the student's math again. On her most recent test she earned a B, a vast improvement over where she had been before!! We also reviewed a little bit of science."
"Student 1 and I worked for a while on review sheets from his most recent workbook. As we have completed many first-grade level workbooks, we are going to test him on one final reading/writing book and then attempt a second-grade level book that will help assess how he will do as we move forward to larger concepts. Student 2 and I completed the second half of the analogies study for her upcoming assessment test. The Level C analogies were much more difficult than the Level B ones, and featured many words that she needed definitions for, but once she understood the vocabulary she did very well at completing the analogies and determining the analogy classification. We will continue to study these concepts in our final two sessions before her exam."
"We worked on concepts that included multiplying and dividing whole numbers, proper fractions, and improper fractions. We also solved some algebra problems that incorporated these concepts. The student did well but needed extra work on the reciprocals that are used to solve these problems. We will continue to work on this. He always pays close attention to what we are discussing and is a great student to work with."
"The student and I went over geometry concepts including circles. We completed extra practice on area, perimeter, and volume. We also discussed capacity, but will go over that more in depth next time. I also want to start going over fractions next session in an effort to push him ahead."
