Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During this session, all three students worked together for a fair amount of time. Throughout our time together, we worked hard on math homework (that covered topics of solving for one variable and geometric proofs). We also worked on an English assignment, where they have to argue for a certain topic, utilizing sources gained from the internet. Towards the end, we worked hard at finding these sources and creating thesis statements for each paragraph. I really enjoyed our time together, and sincerely look forward to when we meet again on Monday, October 6th, at 7:30pm."
"The student and I covered her homework and additional practice problems relating to solving world problems by plugging in information into a y=mx+b equation. We also practiced solving an equation for one specific point and then graphing the point. I created additional practice problems for the student to take world problems and create equations based on the information she was given. She is getting better with plugging in negative numbers and graphing them, though she should still be double checking and triple checking her work to ensure her answers are correct on problems, especially those that deal with negative numbers."
"The student and I worked on his long division and fractions homework, alternating this with his science homework which required him to graph and find the speed of objects. While working on simplifying and manipulating fractions I showed the student how to break the numerator and denominator into their prime factors and cancel out like terms."
"We spent a great deal of time on sets and began to touch on Venn diagrams in order to prepare her for the quiz on Thursday. We reviewed some of the symbols for intersections, unions, complements, etc. We talked through how to divide up different categories into various sections of the Venn diagrams without recounting the same elements."
"For this particular session, the student and I focused on a project he was working on which included graphing his initials and writing the piecewise equation associated with the lines. The project was to include one translation and one reflection. After working through a couple of plot points, the student seemed to get the hang of it. The other part of the session focused on finishing going over his diagnostic test. The last few problems focused on areas that were not covered yet in class and will be saved until a later date."
"Today we covered rotations of objects about a point and about the origin. We covered the rules to follow when rotating 90, 180, or 270 about the origin. Rotating about a point was the most difficult part of this lesson. I left the student with extra practice for solving equations and rotating about the origin. Next week I will leave more practice for rotating about a point."
"We completed the student's homework on arrays. We did the suggested practice work from her teacher. After all her homework was finished she was able to get online and play a multiplying and dividing game."
"We worked on both her College Algebra homework assignment (graphing polynomials) and her Latin assignment (on purpose clauses with imperfect subjunctives). We completed the Latin assignment, and before I left, we made sure that she was confident to be able to finish the math homework."
"We covered pre-derivative work, mainly transformations of parent functions, functions, and dealing with operations such as fractional dividing of fractions, simplifying and expanding formulas. I left them with the rest of the problems he got wrong, to re-graph."
"We worked out of Math ACT book. We are reviewing algebra fractions; addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. As well as word problems with fractions, she needed minimal assistance. Homework is section 2.4, 2.5, & 2.6"
"Today we went over her review sheet and prepared for her test on Thursday. We cleared up the areas that she was having difficulties in and reinforced the areas she already knew. We also, briefly looked at her quiz and went over some mistakes she had made."
"The student and I practiced methods of factoring polynomial equations on the website in preparation for her upcoming test over factoring sum/difference of perfect cubes, perfect square trinomials, and factoring out monomials."
