Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

We reviewed the student's previous tests and quizzes as well as a final exam review sheet she had from class which covered every topic from the summer session. We did extra work on graphing parabolas and finding the equation of graphs. She did an excellent job on all subjects.

Covered all pre-algebra review topic including: expressions (powers, area and volume, order of operations, writing expressions), equations and inequalities, using problem solving plan, functions as rules and tables (domain and range, independent and dependent variables), and functions as graphs. The student is very smart and picks up on the math quickly, but when presented with the same information in a different way , she gets held up on how to approach the problem. She will be successful with practice.

The student and I focused the entire time on Algebra today. We approached a new topic for her, write expressions from word problems which included the concept of rates and unit rates. Although it was a challenge, after working through several problems together, the student was able to complete a summary quiz on her own and do well. Next time we will move on with Chapter 1 and hopefully get ready for a practice chapter test.

The student showed up with several algebra books that he checked out from the library. One of them was an earlier version of the algebra book that I use. We covered a couple dozen problems from Chapter 6 (Factoring). I asked him to do several of the problems on his own in my company. He was able to work through the problems on his own, but often times he did not get the right answers. We went through each problem he did and wrote down the mistakes that he made. Small mistakes are hurting him right now and it is our aim to see to it that he makes these kinds of mistakes less frequently over time. We will be meeting only once a week over the summer and I plan on giving him lots of homework to keep him active in between sessions. I assigned him the Chapter 5 review and the Chapter 6 review for homework.

Today we went over the student's homework. We then covered scientific notation, Pythagorean theorem, and applying Pythagorean theorem to word problems. We also reviewed compound interest problems, graphing problems, and proportions. They were very attentive, as usual, and asked great questions.

We are getting into harder exponent calculations, and the student is able to keep up with the material. We went over some of the homework I gave her last time, and went through Chapter 8 in detail.

The student and I worked through his Test Prep books, and I explained how to rearrange equations and plug in values for each variable. We also practiced order of operations

Since this was our first session, I took a look at student's test results. After accounting for which topics needed work, we started by covering basic linear equations, manipulations and associated definitions.

We continued in the exam prep book on the topics of inequalities, absolute values, simplifying algebraic expressions, and quadratic equations. We spent extra time with quadratic equations and simplifying algebraic expressions.

Today was my first session with the student. Today we met for the first time and went over all the material that will be covered on her test tomorrow. Topics included finding the domain of functions, simplifying radicals, factoring, FOIL'ing, finding common denominators of radical fractions and we also touched on imaginary numbers.

The student and I had a very productive session in which we covered some review topics and new material in preparation for his upcoming Algebra I class. We reviewed how to plug in given variables and solve equations. We also went over using the distributive property using coefficients and variables and combining like terms. He needed very little review before he remembered the concepts and seems to have a strong grasp of the ideas. We started on a new topic - the FOIL method - today as well. He did very well with understanding how to do FOIL as well as when/why to use it. I gave him a few review sheets to do before our next meeting.

Today, the student and I reviewed material from our last session. To review, we did a few practice problems on multiplying and dividing with decimals. We also went over fractions. We reviewed multiplying and dividing fractions as well as converting fractions to decimals and decimals to percentages. Later, we worked over variable expressions - substituting in a given value for a variable in the expression.
