Algebra is a subject that serves as a gateway to higher-level math courses that your child could take in years to come. It will also assist them in some science subjects such as chemistry. Understanding standard form equations and graphing are necessary in order for your child to continue to excel in school. If you sense they need some help, a private tutor is available to assess the areas your child struggles in and teach them solid study skills to understand Common Core algebra. If you are looking for an algebra tutor for your child near Chesapeake, VA, the educational directors at Varsity Tutors could help you find a tutor who could assist any student as they work toward achieving their academic goals.

Session Summaries by Algebra Tutors

Chesapeake, VA Algebra tutoring
Much like the last session, the student worked entirely off of his tablet on electronic assignments. We picked up where we left off last time working with polynomials that had to be split in two parts to be factored. He seemed to have forgotten a bit about what we covered last time, so I demonstrated a few problems to jog his memory. After this, though, he was able to solve the majority of the problems. We encountered a few snags when we found questions that required using the commutative property to solve, but after I demonstrated one example, the student was able to reproduce it on another question. The next assignment we worked on was one requiring him to factor quadratic equations with a coefficient other than 1. I began by recalling the basics of factoring quadratic equations with a coefficient of 1 and the use of FOIL to check our answers. I then told him that the key was to identify the potential factors of the first and last terms. From here, the rest was trial and error, to find out which terms should be grouped together to produce the appropriate quadratic equation through FOIL. This assignment took us much longer, but I told him that because trial and error was used to find our answer, we were essentially checking our work as we went along.

Today was my first meeting with the student. We started the session by going over the concepts and problems in Chapter 6 on the topic of slope. While doing the pre-chapter exercises, I noticed he was having trouble adding and subtracting negative integers. We worked on a couple of examples, and I instructed him to use a number line to visualize these types of problems. After finishing the chapter, we started the exercises at the end. He did fairly well on the concept of slope. I plan to find a video tutorial to help him understand better how to work with negative integers.

We started the session by doing some review problems from the back of the chapter the student's class had just finished the day before. The first few problems dealt with multiplying and dividing alphanumeric terms with exponents (e.g. (5x^2)(3x^5)), which she did very well with. The next problems were where the review came in handy as they dealt with rational exponents, something they had covered in class but that she and I hadn't gotten a chance to work on together. When we looked at the first review problem for that section in the book, it was clear she felt quite a bit less confident about it than she had the previous problems. I showed her a very simple example of what the problem was requiring her to do that I knew she was familiar with (4^1/2=sqrt(4^1)). By showing her an example she was familiar with, she was able to set up the problem the way she needed to with more complex numbers and exponential fractions. The final review question for that section of the chapter had to do with logs. I spent a couple of minutes explaining logs to her and showing her the function on a scientific calculator. Demonstrating how to make the base of exponential expressions the same and what that meant in terms of the mathematical operation helped her understand, and she was able to work through the problem. The final part of the chapter was on exponential functions, which we had just worked on together and she felt very confident about, so she requested we use the remaining time to take a look at the next chapter on quadratic expressions. The first section basically discussed polynomials, specifically monomials, binomials, and trinomials, which were straightforward and didn't take long for her to understand. We then moved on to putting polynomials in standard form (highest exponent value first) and adding and subtracting them. She caught on very quick since it was essentially matching like terms and then either adding or subtracting them. After doing several practice problems, I finished the session by giving her a short preview of the quadratic formula so she could see where the chapter was leading.

We continued working on equations during this section, and I increased the difficulty by building several steps into the problems. He is not having too much trouble grasping the concepts. I'm going to start incorporating word problems as soon as possible in order to challenge him.

The student had an upcoming quiz, so we reviewed some topics from the past few sessions that would be on the quiz. These included solving quadratic equations and the various methods of factoring. We also went over a number of problems on finding the zeros of a function given its graph. There was an occasional stumble when it came to the word problems, but overall the review went well.

The student is having his quadratic unit test on Friday. He was working through his study guide. He had already finished the basic solve by factoring problems that looked like he did a good job on. We picked up on the quadratic equations where he needs to complete the square and use square roots to solve. I walked him through one of each problem, and he then completed another on his own. He did a good job with the square root one. Moving on from there, he knows the quadratic formula and did a good job on using it to solve. I talked with him about determining the type of solution and how many solutions there are based on figuring out the discriminant. He did a good job with that. Finally, we spent some time on word problems.
