Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We worked through some questions of a group assignment the student is working on. The student's question asked about which statistical analysis would be most appropriate for determining the difference between two studies, where only one study notes the presence or not of a genetic marker. She discussed the pros and cons of ANOVA, chi-squared, and regression analyses."
"We worked on telling time to the hour and minute, multiplying two digits by two digits and counting money. She needed to be reminded of each step when multiplying. She appeared happy to be learning. I used a variety of strategies to teach her how to count by 2's and 5's (skip counting) when telling time and multiplying. I brought some practice but she had plenty of worksheets."
"For half of the session we reviewed the math that we went over on Tuesday with some practice problems I prepared. The student got through them without much trouble. I tried to explain to her how the information she was learning with extending tables would eventually help her start working with expressions and equations. She did better with the word problems but I still think there's room for improvement. For the latter half of the session we worked on her writing for the history fair. She cleaned up her thesis to make it more pointed and started working on her supporting evidence. She seems to have a good idea of the historical context in which the events took place."
"The student and I continued to work on subtraction practice and flashcards. Emphasis on subtraction with missing numbers within the problem. Noting progress in subtraction and addition problems when using a number line. Will work on flashcards to memorize the fact families."
"First, the students completed their science homework over SI measurement. The girls needed quite a bit of help but were very willing to learn. After, we worked on word problems involving fractions. Student H has improved on identifying the correct operation to use in the word problem."
"To prepare for his exam the student and I covered what had been giving him the most trouble which was finding the angle between vectors. We showed how to find the angle using identities for both the dot product and the cross product."
