Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered graphing of a polynomial, as well as finding x,y intercepts, vertical and horizontal asymptotes, and describing graph behavior. The student was very alert and paid attention. I explained the problem and let him work out another. I taught by example. He is doing better in precalculus. He is definitely applying himself!"
"We reviewed material for an upcoming test. Since the test covered statistical information, we went over vocab terms that will be used, and then did practice problems similar to the problems on the test. The hardest part was long word problems, as the student's English isn't at the same level as his classmates yet. We will continue to work on this."
"We continue working on money values and adding them: dollars, quarters, dimes and nickels. We practiced counting by 5s and 10s. We read for 20 minutes and worked on comprehension skills and asking questions. The student has good comprehension. Some writing was done, too."
"During this session, the student and I worked on math and reading. We read a passage about glaciers. He needed to read the article, then identify important information. He was able to read the article with minor assistance when identifying words. He was also able to identify important information to answer a question. We completed a math packet that reviewed different math skills. He was able to complete the packet with minor assistance, such as reminders to check his work."
"The student choose to review her math skills using the website I gave her. There were a few problems she needed guidance with. Her confidence seems to be building as she learns different strategies to analyze word problems. We will continue math practice and do a science experiment on landforms on Thursday."
"Student 1 and I prepared for his probability test today using review sheets he received in class. He did well for the most part. It is very important that he continues to take his time, focus, and think about the answers he gets before each question. Student 2 started on his homework packet for the week. He did very well on everything so far."
