Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Worksheet on the a addition of polynomials. The student seems to really understand the material and barely needed my help!"
"We spent today's lesson working on the properties of special right triangles (45-45-90 and 30-60-90)."
"Completed homework assignments in math (area of composite figures), reviewed previous math quiz, studied for science exam, and went over Social Studies reading packet."
"We began the review for her final. Today, we worked on multiply polynomials, adding exponents and solving rational expressions. She struggled with rate*time= distance problems as well as solving for missing dimensions. We worked through the problems together but by the end of next session she should be able to complete the problems independently."
"For the first part of the session, we reviewed her Spanish work, which had to do with demonstratives and their function. We also spent some time reviewing some of the work she had previously turned in. Some of it was incorrectly done, so we talked through those corrections and she understood those topics well. We then proceeded to work on a review of her Algebra homework, which had to do with radicals and factoring them out. She used a method which I am not used to but seems to work for her. I encouraged her to not rely on her calculator too much and to instead try to identify the patterns that exist in those radicals."
"We did some work on word problems then reviewed simplification of rational polynomials. The student and I worked on studying strategies, including working carefully and breaking big problems down to small ones. He has a review packet I have asked him to work on, plus flashcards to make."
