Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I continued his understanding of fractions. We went over the worksheets that I gave him homework, which went over reducing fractions and equivalent fractions. He is making strides in his understanding of fraction relationships and we will continue to improve his knowledge. I left him with homework to go over factoring numbers, which will be an asset when he is looking for equivalent fractions and reducing. In our next session, I will give the student a fraction assessment to determine what he is still struggling with, before moving on to the next aspect of math. I know that he is need of learning how to multiply and divide with 2-digit multiplicands and dividends."
"The student and I worked on a homework assigned that required him to complete Venn diagram problems involving unions and intersections. First, we reviewed the basic concept and then applied the concepts to the homework problems. He appeared to grasp the concepts by the end of the session."
"Continued to complete missing lessons from the student's portfolio. We will continue on these lessons in order to advance his understanding in his mathematics course. He received an A+ on his science project and final science essay."
"During the session, I checked over the client's homework regarding conversion calculations between time units (minutes, hours, days, years, decades, centuries, etc.). I pointed out some errors from the client's work and we re-worked those problems together. I then provided him with several similar problems to work through, which helped him grasp the concept better. We ended the session by working on some prep test practice questions."
"The student and I reviewed plate tectonics and material from her science quiz last week because she has the opportunity to retake the quiz this week. She only missed 3 questions, so we went over the questions that she missed and she explained to me why she got them wrong and the correct answer. I created a 20 question practice quiz based on the quiz she took in class last week and she did a great job, particularly with the short answer questions that asked her to define a term or concept. We then completed her math homework together and checked the answers. The student still tends to rush through her problems - she had 11 problems and she ended up getting 3 problems wrong because she missed a negative sign. After pointing this out, she easily redid the problems. We then reviewed her "words of the day" for an English vocabulary quiz tomorrow. We wrapped up the session by completing her Spanish homework on reflexive pronouns."
"Today the student finished his portion of his group project. He practiced testing for normality and then reviewed which non-parametric tests would be appropriate options for the problems. Finally he ran each test in R and created the appropriate graphs. Today he will take his practice test and tomorrow I will be grading it and we will continue reviewing for the final."
