Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over the quadratic formula and factoring equations. By the end of the session, the student demonstrated he understood the work by performing the exercises correctly."
"We worked on exponents, FOIL, and factoring. The student did very well on her own after being shown a couple of tricks. She picked up quickly and had no trouble."
"The student and I reviewed for his exam. We covered vertex form, factored form, and standard form of trinomials as well as grayling, dilation, and translation of parabolas."
"The student and I continued learning new material in regards to meiosis and mitosis for his online science course. We have reached the final stages of the information, and despite the quick distribution of the information, we made sure to take our time and wait to move forward until he was able to relay and explain the information back to me. He is very well prepared and comfortable with the information heading into reviewing for the exam."
"The student showed me her graded biology and algebra tests, and we discussed the questions / problems that gave her the most difficulty. We worked some of the incorrect algebra problems together, and she was able to work most of those on her own once we looked at a YouTube review. The concept that was giving her the most trouble was absolute value, so we worked almost all of those to make sure she was clear on the concept. We spent some time talking about how she could use her time wisely over the next 2 weeks, especially since she will be taking exams the week of Dec. 14. We decided that we will meet on Dec. 5 and review algebra concepts, mitosis (which she admitted was difficult to understand), and study strategies. She agreed to email me study guide subjects so I can prepare tools to assist her, especially in algebra and biology."
"During our session, we went through the student's class notes for that day and then worked through her homework together. We focused on scatter plots and trend lines. She really seems to have a good grasp on this material, but she would sometimes have a hard time figuring out where to start or forget a step somewhere in the middle. She has a good logical understanding of how they work, which is extremely important with math. She struggled most with figuring out whether a set of data correlates, is causal, or has no correlation, but after some practice problems, she was understanding it better. After her homework was finished, I gave her a review worksheet I made up for her with material from her last quiz, and she got everything correct. For our next session, I asked her to bring her test from last Thursday with her so that we can go over it because she said she didn't do well on it."
