Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today was the first time I got to meet the student. He seemed like a great kid who was excited to learn, but needed to have a little more understanding of the concepts. We specifically went over one of his recent exams that included slope, y-intercept, graphs, systems of equations, and inequalities. He seemed to be having difficulty with the numbers and basic mathematical operations. His attitude was very strong throughout the entire process, it seemed like he really wanted to do better. I gave him the notes with the information and formulas that we covered, which he needed to remember to succeed."
"The student needed help preparing for his test on Tuesday. I taught him how to create a unit circle and use the information to solve trigonometry problems. He also had a study guide online that we went through. We reviewed how to solve trigonometry word problems using sine, cosine, tangent and the Pythagorean theorem. We also reviewed how to convert from radians to degrees and use either one to find the values of trigonometry functions to their corresponding angles on the unit circle."
"The student's class covered absolute values today. He had one new homework worksheet over this material. Before going over the worksheet together, I had the student teach me about it. This way, he practiced verbally explaining the material so that he has a strong recall of the material. I even had him use a number line to visually explain the concept. We then went through the worksheet together, which he had hurriedly finished at the end of class. He had made some errors, which often happens in his hurried manner. I pointed out the first couple to him, and he fixed them on his own. He then was able to go through the rest of the worksheet and locate the rest of the errors he had made. The student has a quiz coming up this Wednesday. I had prepared a practice quiz for the student in preparation for the quiz. He scored a 90% on the practice quiz. After this, I gave the student some practice questions to do out of the textbook to further prepare for the quiz. He did well on all of these as well, so we are both feeling confident heading into the quiz."
"We went over lessons from her workbook on proportions, shapes, and fractions/variables. She grasped the material really well, but I asked her to complete the associated practice problems with each lesson and tell me if she has any questions on any of the problems. I had also prepared a worksheet for her to complete in regards to her performance on the practice 7th grade test. We will be meeting on Thursday to cover more lessons from her workbook and reviewing anything she was having difficulties with."
"We reviewed quadratic functions for an upcoming test by completing a practice assessment. The student was having problems with completing the square and squaring negative numbers. After I explained the process and provided her with some new strategies for each concept, she indicated that she was more confident in her knowledge and that she was sure she would do well on the test."
"Today, I reviewed all the topics I covered on Sunday and Monday with the student. Also we did more practices of radicals, percentages, addition, subtraction and multiplication with fractions. He is now confident and knowledgeable in those topics. I suggested to him to take a practice test at home before our next session."
