Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We began with a real-world example which led to creating an equation in standard form, then rewriting and graphing in slope/intercept form. I continued reviewing multiplying and dividing by fractions. She did not remember how to do it at first, but once she was reminded and completed a problem, she was able to solve them on her own."
"Today he and I started by reviewing multiplication and division flash cards. He only missed a couple (81/9 and 56/8). Then we worked on converting simple fractions to decimals. This is an abstract concept but essential in understanding decimals. I based the lesson on converting 1/4 to 0.25 by correlating the conversion using 1/4 of a dollar = a quarter which is 25 cents. Then we spent most of the second half reading chapter 2 of "James and the Giant Peach," finishing with some more decimal work."
"I reviewed recent vocabulary with the student: alternate interior angles, alternate exterior angles, consecutive interior angles and corresponding angles. The student was able to identify the pairs. I reviewed his square numbers and he did well remembering them. We played a card game involving addition and multiplication and he did fine."
"We reviewed multiplication and division up to dividing by 5. Then we moved on to dividing by 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10. The student immediately excelled at dividing by 9 and 10. Ultimately she was able to solve them all."
"We went over the student's homework on finding factors, identifying prime numbers, and recognizing square numbers. We did a maze game to help identify prime numbers and practiced how to check that a number was prime."
"The student and I worked on his statistics project for his class. For the project, we used MiniTab to do the calculations and to generate graphs. We then did a t-test, ANOVA, regression, and a confidence interval and interpreted the results."
