Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We mostly worked on math facts this session. The student still has some difficulty concentrating, but seems to be following up on his promise to practice reflex."
"He worked on dividing fractions with word problems and multiplying fractions with word problems. We will work on rounding, a reading project, a science project, and butterflying."
"The student and I continued our drills of trig, focusing mostly on solving for an unknown variable x for inverse sec/csc/tan functions. These are good problems because they require a comfortable knowledge of all trig concepts and a clear understanding of multiple algebraic steps involved. Drills, drills, and more drills have been the potion and this sessions we drilled more problems. I will give him a five problem quiz next time and offer no help. We will assess where he is with the material and keep working so that he can master each moving part, especially the idea of angles being portions or "pieces" of a unit circle and the ability the chose the appropriate part."
"The concepts we covered this session were all of Chapter 9 to review for the student's upcoming test next week. We covered adding and subtracting fractions, changing decimal to percent and vice versa, multiplication and division, and factoring prime numbers. He had a great attitude and I expect him to do well on his test today. His mom will be emailing me with his scores."
"The first student worked on the math packet that included all the topics we have covered so far. The second student worked on the addition of fractions with unlike denominators. Homework was assigned on geometry sections."
"The student and I worked on her math homework in order to help her prepare for a standardized test she will be taking tomorrow. The specific topic that we covered during our session was probability. She had lots of homework problems to complete, so we walked through these and I helped her along the way. For the most part she seems to have the basic concepts of probability down, but there were a few things that I pointed out that I think will help her in her homework and on her standardized tests. Finally, I gave her a few impromptu problems to either solve, just to see what she was struggling with and if there was anything else we needed to review. She answered all of these with little difficulty, and she seems very confident going into her standardized test."
