Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I went over her test, correcting what she did wrong. We worked a lot on improper fractions and long division with 2 digit divisors. I also gave her flashcards of multiplication facts for her to work on every night, which will strengthen her math skills."
"I started this session by going over some Algebra problems. She is making some progress. We also covered some geometry, which she did very well on. Her geometry is strong, and will most likely need very little help from me. Next session, I plan to go over graphing problems and more algebra. She is doing better but still has some work to do."
"The student and I discussed some general techniques and helpful tips for managing time. We went over some of the practice exam questions and concepts she struggled with, focusing mostly on geometry, percentages, and word problems. We spent much of the session working through practice problems together, both grid-in and multiple choice. We have a second session scheduled for next week, by which time the student will have completed a third practice exam for us to review and determine any other areas of weakness."
"The student and I worked on math today. We reviewed her assessment, did an additional practice test (timed), and did some work with multiplication tables. We then did a beginning exercise on writing in response to a picture. The session was good overall and progress was made."
"Today, I took a new approach with the student. I discussed some new strategies and ways of looking at the ACT and implemented a new method. I had him run through a practice math test and put each question into one of three different categories. Then he went back and answered each question based on his categorization while I timed him with a stopwatch. We began interpreting the results of this exercise and will continue interpreting on Wednesday."
"The student and I successfully reviewed additional micro problems and questions related to the analysis of an industry based upon shifts in supply and demand, production decisions within a perfectly competitive (price-taking) industry, the definition and evaluation of technical and allocative efficiency (for a monopolistic firm), the determination of "market demand" and the interaction with market supply to find the equilibrium price and quantity, and the definitions (and evaluation of) rival, nonrival, exclusion, and non-exclusion scenarios."
