Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we again reviewed fractions. We worked on adding, subtracting, and simplifying these fractions in addition to translating this information to solving word problem. The student did very well."
"The student was still working on surface area of various geometric figures, including scale factors. We worked through his homework, and we also spent some time organizing his notebook so that he will be better organized and prepared when studying for his upcoming quizzes and tests. Overall, he is getting better, especially with using his notes. For homework, I asked him to continue to organize his math notebook and to study for his upcoming quiz and test by reworking all of the problems he completed for homework."
"With the first student this week, we worked on his math problem set and his industrial revolution study guide. Both of these assignments were from the textbook. In math, he had proofs using AA~, SAS~, and SSS~ theorems. In his study guide, we had to read the book and answer questions that corresponded pretty closely to the text. He finished these assignments during our session. With the second student, we started off with finishing his math problem set, which was on solving inequalities. When this was finished, we worked a little bit more on his history project on pyramids. We worked on making the pharaoh and the architect, then on setting up the diorama pieces on the board and assembling the final project. He is going to build the rest of the ramp before our next meeting."
"The student and I also worked on his Reading vocabulary. After that, we and read a few pages of his book. He felt very confident about his Math test from earlier in the day."
"Reviewed slope and related linear equations, then moved into his current chapter work on exponents, scientific notation, and non-linear functions. We plan to better prepare him for his next major exam."
"We practiced with performing hypothesis tests. Forming decision rules, calculating t statistics, and the meaning of inference were stressed."
