Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today's session was spent completing two math worksheets. The worksheets covered graphing linear equations, finding slope, finding x and y intercepts. The student could use extra practice on these types of problems."
"Today the student and I worked on his math homework. He struggled with the concepts that he already knew and has completed with satisfactory results. However the addition of another component to the distribution property of multiplication caused him great confusion. We worked for a good amount of time an i believe that i have cleared up a lot of the issues he was confused with."
"The student has a math assessment coming up, and so we spent the entire period reviewing linear equations: how to evaluate a set of points to create slope and y-intercept, and how to turn that equation into a graph. We spent a very long time teasing apart the relationship between the numbers in the equation and the appearance of the line. The student had a really hard time grasping the concept of the y-intercept, so we went over that again and again during practice problems. The student seemed much more confident at the end of the session and was even able to do the problems in his head!"
"We did more review problems in preparation for the student's calculus quiz tomorrow. She is doing very well understanding most of the calculus, but sometimes she has issues with processing what is actually being asked of her with each problem. Despite this, she still does a good job understanding and completing problems with little help from me. I think she will do well on her quiz tomorrow, and our sessions will continue as needed from there."
"During this session, I helped the student review her homework that covered dot plots, how to read them, and how to represent data using dot plots. We then looked at other ways to organize data, such as with bar graphs, line graphs, circle graphs, etc., and we answered questions about data using these graphs. She understood these concepts very well and did not have difficulty with anything in particular. She seemed very confident in her abilities in this area."
"We continued solving practice problems from the practice test and will complete the short-answer questions on Wednesday."
