Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I assisted her with her homework. Her math homework covered solving two- step equations. As we reviewed her homework, I noticed that she stumbled with problems involving negative numbers and fractions. After we completed her homework assignment, we reviewed the rules of integers. From this review, I observed that she does not recall the rule for subtracting integers. In general, she did not know to add the opposite. As a result of this observation, we completed a practice worksheet together, discussing how to solve problems around subtracting with integers."
"I assisted the student with her homework on dividing mixed numbers. She sometimes got confused about which number to change to its reciprocal. I suggested the saying, "leave it, change it, flip it," to help her remember what to do, and she said that helped. After we completed her homework, we practiced some more problems with multiplying and dividing fractions and mixed numbers. She did a good job of remaining focused for most of the session."
"I became familiar with his math course structure and started to review different types of functions and how to graph them and interpret their equations. He has a solid comprehension of material once it is explained and has some good mechanical skills that just need polishing."
"I briefly tested the student's knowledge on the MAP test using the online learning platform's tools on language arts and math. We went over some of the math that she will be running into a lot both on the test and in high school."
"I continued to assist the student with addition and subtraction of fractions. Fractions with unlike denominators were introduced and the student was taught how to create an LCM. Additionally, the I explained with examples how to reduce the resulting fraction from an addition or subtraction. Also, because the ability to perform multiplication of integers is necessary in working with fractions addition and subtraction, I assisted the student to practice memorizing the multiplication table up to 10x10=100."
"I covered addition, subtraction of decimal numbers and multiple-step problems. The student was doing well with this subject, and she had good attitude. I did not leave any extra work, and I have no concerns at this time."
