Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I met and reviewed the chapter to prepare for her chapter test. She had a good understanding of the concepts throughout the chapter, and needs to focus on graphing rational functions. We went over some additional examples, while emphasizing the need to work problems out. Although it is important to memorize formulas, we worked on understanding the formulas and shortcuts."
"The student and I went over the draft of her paper and checked for consistency with the article and comprehension of the statistical tests involved."
"The student and I checked his homework and began reviewing fractions and decimals. We also discussed organization tools to assist him in completing all his assignments on time."
"Today we reviewed all of the material we covered in the previous weeks, starting with geometry and moving through lines and graphs. To close the student took a second diagnostic test. This one took only an hour, compared to the first one he did when we started which took over 2. He also did a majority of the math without much additional help from me. This a major improvement over the first week when he struggled to recall basic information. Overall I think he is ready to begin algebra next year. His reasoning skills are very good and his arithmetic is excellent."
"We reviewed adding/ subtracting + multiplying/ dividing rational expressions, solving and graphing one-variable and two-variable inequalities. I provided practice problems (along with answer keys) for combining rational expressions and graphing linear inequalities. The student was positive throughout the session. Good progress noted."
"The student did all the problems I gave her and listened to what I had to say when we reviewed the material. We went over multiplication and division of fractions. She remembered multiplication with no problems, including cross cancellation and simplifying, but had trouble remembering division of fractions. We reviewed the rules a bit and she did some problems with no problems. We will pick up next time with division again, as review."
