Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"This was our first session. I worked to build rapport with the student as well as identify her baseline skills. Her parents expressed they would prefer we focus on math fluency before moving onto other math concepts."
"The student has really improved as far as accepting challenges and getting his work done. We worked first through a series of common core math problems, most of which he had no issue with. We spent a short time on some English questions, which he was quick with. We also worked a little on his homework."
"The student and I played a couple of fun function-guessing games to start off. Then we went over a couple of arithmetic problems followed by word problems dealing with percentages and ratios. We ended the session with a brief overview of geometry."
"Tonight we worked through the student's test study guide. Topics included finding the slope of a linear table of values, writing an equation given a point and a slope, writing an equation given two points, and writing an equation of a function given a table of values. The student is confident in his abilities to complete the exercises."
"The student and I prepared for her test which she had the next day. It was on volume of prisms and pyramids. We also reviewed and revised her last quiz on area. She is grasping these concepts well and I was happy to see her willing to do extra practice."
"Today the first student and I went over his test he took on Friday. After he worked on his homework which was adding and subtracting integers. We reviewed the rules and he was able to work through the problems and complete it. The second student worked on her homework over functions, graphs, and tables. We reviewed what constitutes as a function and how you can find the rule when given a table. Overall good productive session."
"We worked on free response questions. They were quite difficult. Movement of a particle along a line with only the velocity equation given. Treatment of logs and log rules. Changes in volume and the speed of trains were also solved. We spent the last few minutes reviewing inverse functions and finding their slopes."
"We went through his homework. It was about matrices and how he has to set them up and use the calculator to solve them. Also we covered how he has to convert different kinds of system of equations to matrices and use the inverse matrices to solve for the variables. He solved more than 20 questions for this concept. I also explained and showed him why AxB is not equal to BxA in matrices. He is doing good."
"The student and I covered long division. We worked on both solving a division problem in the traditional way and in learning how to estimate an answer. We reviewed all of her multiplication tables and did a couple of word problems involving multiplication. She is doing very well and has improved leaps and bounds on her multiplication tables."
"Today the student worked on her homework. She is working on multiplying and dividing fractions and mixed numbers. She does this really well and completed most of her assignment with little help. We looked over the topics that her quiz on Thursday would be covering and decided to do a couple extra problems that focused on dividing mixed numbers. She will do well on her test!"
"We prepped for his final on Monday. We mainly focused on Chapter 6. By the end of the lesson I was confident in the student's abilities on the subject matter."
"We prepared for the student's quiz tomorrow over Implicit Differentiation and Related Rates. We reviewed the chapter material and worked practice problems for each section."
