Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Session began with warm-up word problems for the student. I assisted with the first 2 problems and he had to do 2 more independently. He showed success with stating the correct expression. We then worked on his extra credit assignment from his math teacher which involved supplementary angles. He grasped the concept very quickly. Lastly, we discussed his accommodations and goals from his IEP."
"Today, I cover long division, multiplication, addition, subtraction, fractions and decimals with the student. He was struggling with those topics and his attitude towards the material was very positive and willing to learn. By the end of the session, he master all the topics listed above. I suggested he should learn the multiplication tables so he can increase his speed on his upcoming exam."
"We went over some quizzes that the student had for his course regarding multiplying and dividing polynomials and dealing with irrational numbers. We additionally worked on a project that he had for homework regarding functions and their applications within real life situations."
"The student and I were largely reviewing for her upcoming test in today's session. She seemed to know most of the material quite well and barely needed my help. We covered chapters 4 and 7, focusing on inequalities and solving systems of equations with 2 different expressions being equated with each other, typically in slope-intercept form, to find a common intersection point."
"The student and I worked on rational expressions. She struggles with combining terms and simplifying the expressions. I provided step-by-step instructions to solve problems by first concentrating on the numerator then on the denominator with division as the final step. I shared a tip on how to do the division at the end."
"We reviewed content from the previous week as well as an additional worksheet. We took extra time on the various ways to use the elimination method, and how to identify whether to add/ subtract/ multiply/ substitute. The student shows improved understanding, but had particular difficulty verbalizing and writing his understanding. We worked on the principles and how to better understand and apply them. A recommendation was made for the student to practice additional problems before his next test, writing out his reasoning and steps in addition to solving. There is still work to be done, but good progress has been made."
