Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We worked on adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing fractions, in addition to word problems and charts involving fractions. By the end of the session the client felt ready for her test the next day."
"Algebra - I gave the student a multiplication assessment and she was able to answer 69 out of 100 in the 5 minute time-frame of the quiz. This week she needs to practice her times-3 and times-4 facts as well as the squares (1x1, 2x2, etc.), to improve her fluency. We also worked through some of the algebra problems from her course and I clarified questions that she had about them. French -- we worked on pronunciation and vocabulary."
"Today we focused on hyperbolic conic sections. We covered how to use the formulas given to find the vertex, directrix, or foci given two of the three. Next, we worked on how to take a generic formula and algebraically manipulate the terms to fit into the formulas given for hyperbolic functions. We went through a few exercises, until the student was able to go through the whole solution on her own. Then we had a quick review of factored numbers."
"During this session, the student and I continued to revise and edit a current piece. We also discussed in depth organizational techniques to enhance his writing. I can see great growth in his writing. Keep it up!"
"We reviewed the essay the student wrote and went over notes on Japan and India. For homework she will continue reading the chapters, and next week we will work on graphic organizers for the civilizations."
"The student has a test tomorrow so we went over a practice test. We went over firm theory, game theory, labor markets, and other briefer topics. He will use the online resources later tonight or tomorrow to do more practice for his test."
