Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over the homework I assigned her last week (summarizing paragraphs from her novel, using context clues to figure out words she didn't know, and some math problems introducing fractions-->decimals-->percentages); we then focused on negative numbers and how fractions relate to division."
"Reviewed returned quizzes for body systems to determine the cause of scores. We reviewed the nervous system and immune system, as well as giving her ideas on how to review the information before our next session."
"The student and I focused on the properties of circles. We reviewed area and circumference. We also practiced solving for a variable given arc lengths. The student was also able to construct circles given a problem and solve for the variable."
"The twins and I reviewed their homework, which was comprised of essay prompts, logic and geometry problems, and identifying sentence errors and correcting sentences problems. We discussed the format and components of the essay in depth. We then completed a student-generated response math section in the practice book. The boys requested further essay prompts and geometry questions for homework."
"The student did not have any homework or lessons for us to go over, as her classes had not yet resumed since Winter Break (they had field trips last week). We looked up her math teacher's lesson plan for the week and found that she will be learning rates and ratios. I taught her about rates, ratios and proportions (and the difference between them). We went over unit rates and how to solve for them, and how to solve for equal ratios/proportions. She completed a worksheet and did very well."
"The student and I reviewed some of his quant homework in depth. He is struggling with basic algebra skills, so I asked him to practice algebra. I also assigned him quant 3."
