Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"This was my first session working with the student on algebra. She has a test coming up on Tuesday which covers the standard and slope-intercept equations of a line, and how to find those equations given two points or a slope and a point. We also covered parallel and perpendicular slopes, which she was hesitant about at first but understood easily once we broke it down. She had the foundation concepts down, and just needed some reinforcement to go into Tuesday's test comfortably. In our future sessions we will cover other topics that may appear on her final exam for the school year. She was a pleasure to work with, with a great attitude, asking questions when she needed extra clarification. I look forward to meeting with her again on Tuesday after her test."
"The student and I went over solving quadratic equations by graphing. He was initially confused about this topic, so we did many practice problems. At the end of our session, he was doing better. I will keep working on this with him in future sessions."
"We worked on exponential functions in great detail. We went over exponential decay and growth and what happens when we change the time were compounding on. We also looked at simplifying exponential equations and solving equations involving exponents."
"During this session, we went over questions on the biology of evolution. We did a castle learning and a review packet. We also worked on a packet on finding regression lines for math. Overall this session went well."
"For our last session, we reviewed pretty much everything we covered this semester for the student's final exam. Whenever we do practice problems together, he really seems to understand it. Repetition works very well for him. I really do feel he has improved."
"The student and I worked on dividing polynomials by a monomial. I showed her a couple of examples and then she started working on her lesson problems independently. When I checked her final answers, she was doing a great job on her problems. She then worked on her quiz independently and got an A on it. After she was done with her quiz, we then started working on factoring out the GCF of polynomials. I showed her how to do this by factoring the expressions and then circling what is common. She picked this up quickly, so she started working on her lesson problems. When I checked her final answers, she was doing a good job on this. She finished the practice problems and then started working independently on her quiz. She only missed one question on her quiz and got a B on it."
