Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I gave both students their math exams, including but not limited to: rounding, place value, integers, division, times tables, etc. They both scored very high. Both students can recall times tables figures quickly (I taught Student A single-digit multiplication). Times tables are an integral part of basic mathematics which will help in the future. I reviewed science with Student W as well. I gave them word problems for homework."
"During our first session together, we met on the online forum where the student worked hard on understanding some Algebra concepts. This included greatest common factor to solving multi-step equations, and we were very productive in preparing her for an upcoming standardize exam. This session went really well and I look forward to meeting with her again in 2 weeks!"
"I taught the student a new section on trigonometric formulas that will be on his final, particularly double-angle, reduction, half-angle and related identity proofs. He was struggling most with identity proofs so we worked on example problems to get a better sense of solving those problems. After several problems, he felt more confident solving those problems and also got a better sense of how to apply the different formulas he learned in this session."
"The student wanted to use up the last of his hours so we met and did as much review as we could for his upcoming final. Problems ranged from rotating areas into three dimensions to calculating work done by setting up force-distance integrals."
"The student had a lot of math homework that included estimating costs of multiple options and finding the average of 2 to 4 numbers. We worked hard during our session to complete her homework where I discussed why it was important to learn multiple strategies."
"I went over subtracting fractions involving mixed numbers with the student tonight. He did significantly better tonight, with a good understanding of using the least common multiple to give fractions the same denominator. I left him with some practice problems to work on his own."
