Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We continued to review the textbook/supplemental workbook provided and did practice problems on each section covered. I plan on moving faster over the next few weeks as the student shows a remarkable grasp of the material from algebra needed for upcoming pre-calculus class. He also is progressing nicely through his school, which is providing additional review practice on needed math skills for the class."
"Covered solving equations with radicals. Reviewed Pythagorean theorem and distance and midpoint formulas. Did review problems from the entire chapter. Will start next chapter at next session."
"We worked mostly on translating word problems into mathematical sentences, and went over some on basic concepts."
"We spent most of tonight's session reviewing vectors and their applications in preparation for the student's test tomorrow. We also reviewed law of sines and law of cosines."
"The student had some new worksheets on factoring and completing the square. We worked through each problem step-by-step and I helped guide her to solve as much as she could on her own. She did well and was trying hard, and I saw a lot of improvement as the session continued and she was seeing the pattern in the solutions. I also talked to her about definitions to try and improve her grasp on the overall concepts: defining polynomial, binomial, trinomial, etc."
"Today, the student and I worked on all chapter 5 material including presentations and exercises. He is struggling with key words and concepts to put together problems. He seems determined to follow up and bring up his grades. I included a few strategies but they were basic since he struggles to break problems into little pieces. I have seen his lowest grade and he is aware now how to bring it up."
