Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student received an 86 on her last quiz. We went over her worksheets on transformations (reflections, rotations, and translations) and additional intro geometry. I also quizzed her at the end."
"We went through her algebra test. She only has a final exam left. We went over the concepts and formulas needed to answer the questions."
"Student and I reviewed the exam she took before her spring break last week. Unfortunately, she did not do very well. She probably got half of the test right, didn't complete a quarter of the test and for the remaining questions, she mixed up negative/positive signs or multiplied something by 2 instead of squaring it. We went over all of the questions she got wrong and she quickly realized the simple mistakes she made. She has an opportunity to retake the test next week and plans on retaking it. After, we completed one of her new unit homework assignments. She currently has three outstanding homework assignments - after we finished this assignment, she now has two outstanding assignments. She needs to try to do her homework on her own in a timely manner. If she really doesn't understand something, I am more than happy to help her out and clarify things. We plan on meeting again on Saturday to get caught up on her homework assignments and to start working on her unit concept map."
"The student and I went over practice problems from last year's algebra 1 exam. This was in preparation for the upcoming algebra 1 exam. We also went over the concepts behind each problem. He was very receptive to the information."
"I got to know the student a bit and really emphasized the fact that if he doesn't understand a concept, he should be honest and tell me about it, and I wouldn't judge him. That being said, he would actually tell me when he wasn't understanding something, though it occasionally took a little prying. We went over what functions are, how to substitute functions into other functions, and reviewed expanding parenthetical operations. He got the hang of it quite well by the end. His basic arithmetic is accurate. He knows many rules and operations, just not the official names for them, so he doesn't know what the assignments are referring to. We'll work on that in our next session."
"Today the student worked on her mathematics homework; specifically she covered numbers in series and different numerical sequences. She worked on her homework assignments for 7.1 and 7.2. After she finished her mathematics homework, she worked on her reading assignment for her science fiction class. She did really well with all the material today."
