Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I tutored the student in pre algebra. We went through a diagnostic test that she had which went fairly well."
"We worked on logarithms and exponential growth functions. We also talked about the SAT and worked some SAT practice problems focusing on Math."
"The student had started a new topic in his math class on Monday and we had an opportunity to talk about ratios of relationship. He had a clear understanding of how to apply the formulas for direct and indirect relationships, but wasn't sure how they were related mathematically. I gave him so ways of understanding the material that would show how these variations were connected to one another, and he showed a greater understanding of how to draw conclusions about direct and indirect relationships from abstractions given in word problems. He also found an online resource offered by his school that would give him access to a digital textbook, so we used this textbook to look at some questions, and work towards an answer. Next time, I would like to go through the textbook with him and choose more selective problems for him to solve, that more closely relate to what he was struggling with, rather than the more random assortment we went through today."
"We covered algebraic word problems and reviewed graphing coordinates. The student is doing much better at understanding the concepts behind translating word problems into math equations and solving algebraic equations. He also finally completed his warm-up multiplication quiz in under a minute with zero mistakes."
"Yesterday we started a new unit with the student, polygons and angles. Our test review from our previous session seemed to help, as he scored a B+ on his test retake. He understands this material well- he goes through the problem quickly and comes to the correct answer. It has been a pleasure to work with him so far!"
"We covered chapter 6.2 which was the first trigonometry section. I taught the student some tricks and tips for learning trigonometry. And we also completed her homework. She's doing really well with this section so far, it will be good to review the next couple sections next week! It was a great session."
