Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We specifically covered topics from the student's Prep Test. These problems included geometry, algebra, and linear equations. After completing the math homework, we moved on to grammar. A win from this section was the student catching his grammatical errors and completing the sentences on the page. We concluded with the student's science project, in which he was likening the parts of a cell to members of a basketball team. The student was zipping through this assignment and the project looked in good shape."
"We worked over some practice problems from a previous year's exam, as well as practice problems from their textbook. The trig problems were primarily focused on using the Unit Circle for exact values of trig functions, as well as the basic properties of trig functions (like reciprocal identities and quotient identities)."
"Today, the student and I went over solving multi step linear equations, integer operations and finding the missing angles of triangles. The student did well with finding the missing angles and integer operations. I always remind him to do the opposite operation in order to isolate the variable. This tip helped tremendously. I think the student can do so much if he puts his mind to it."
"This session we reviewed rational equations for the student's test on Wednesday. We covered factoring denominators and exponents to find domain restrictions and zeros. We also went over polynomial theorems and solutions. He does well with the material."
"This was a great sessions. The student was able to practice and master five different concepts during this session. He went up 1%, and he is probably only 1 concept away from moving up another percent. We worked on multiplying binomials, solving inequalities and a couple other one-variable concepts."
"We began a new section on Green's theorem and using it to solve line integrals around simple closed curves. We worked on a few of the problems that the student had for practice, and he managed to understand well how to apply the theorem."
