Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I covered addition and subtraction with fractions again. I saw immense progress in his confidence and his knowledge of how to approach the fraction problems. He was able to solve all of the problems by himself and only needed to repeat a couple that were wrong. Next week, he and I will move on to mixed numeral fractions and multiplying and division."
"We went over the sample math state test questions together. Much of her difficulty seems to come from a lack of ability on more basic skills (times tables for instance) so we are going to make sure and go back to review some of these skills to aid with the more advanced problems."
"We focused on getting her caught up in her math class, which is mainly algebra infused with some geometric principles. We went over an in-class worksheet which she had some questions about, and looked at her homework packet, focusing on quadratic and linear functions."
"The student had two worksheets on fractions to do for homework. She had to figure out the improper fraction and mixed number based on a picture. She then had to convert the mix numbers to improper fractions and vice versa. She did very well. She participated in class on Thursday after she was ahead of the class and knew how to convert a mixed number to an improper fraction."
"The student and I worked through games as a part of her Math online program. She has been able to clear several trigonometric skills. The Math online program has several math skills and games."
"This was my final session with this student. We did a broad review for her upcoming final exam, focusing more on some of the early topics we had covered during our early sessions, since she has demonstrated a good proficiency with the more recent material on hypothesis testing and correlation/ simple linear regression. Since it had been so long, she needed refreshing on the different general types of distributions and some of the application rules for normal distributions (e.g. the Empirical Rule), as well as expected values for probability distributions. Given our review of her problem areas and her comfort level with the more recent material I feel confident in her ability to succeed on her test."
