Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Final review of the test! Went over every section, especially vocab and math, and talked about general test-taking planning. Some psyching-up, general review, and showing the student that she's prepared!"
"The student is an extremely professional and consistent student. We began our session learning how to find the x-intercept of a line equation. We started by reviewing that subject until she understood how to do it on her own. We also talked conceptually about how the graph looks, and what the value of y must be in order to find the x intercept. We also reviewed slopes of a line, and drew out a diagram to tell what the slope of the line would be, depending on which half of a quadrant (octant) the line went through. After this, we then went on to discuss systems of equations. I gave her the approach she can use to solve a system with two equations and two unknowns. This is an enormous step, and a fantastic accomplishment she has made. We finished the session by reviewing factoring and solved some of the questions from her previous week's session."
"We worked through a quantitative comparison section, pointing out tricky types of questions and reviewing methods for solving them. We also practiced vocabulary."
