Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Reviewed chapter on polynomials in preparation for upcoming chapter test: scientific notation, properties of exponents, simplifying expressions with exponents, multiplying/dividing with exponents, and adding/subtracting/multiplying polynomials."
"Today the student and I focused on a review for his test on Monday. We focused on the quadratic formula, completing the squares, and factoring. We also went over his test from several weeks ago. The student fully understands the concepts but just needs to slow down to avoid minor mistakes."
"We went over material covering the Laws of Exponents today. Though the student did struggle at first, he eventually solved every problem."
"Today we went over practice problems with polynomials and factoring to help the student prepare for her test tomorrow. She understands the concepts after she is reminded of them. We did a lot of practice problems and the only mistakes she made were related to confusing the signs of some of the numbers. I have definitely seen an improvement in her work and understanding, however, I know that she lacks confidence in this area. I left her with a practice worksheet and an answer guide that will hopefully help her gain more practice and confidence before the test."
"We worked on the student's project with quadratic functions and catapults. We reviewed the quadratic formula and writing quadratic functions in standard form."
"The student and I spent the entire session going over material that will be on her test tomorrow. We went over compound inequalities, absolute value inequalities and the rules for and vs. or inequalities. She seemed to remember a bit from last year, but we covered examples of each of the kinds. We spent about 15 minutes covering the more advanced problems which will surface on her test tomorrow. She was in good spirits and was particularly focused tonight."
