Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on geography and math for this session. Using an online map of the United States and a printed map of Africa, we determined the latitudes and longitude of different cities and states. We also located which city, state, or body of water was present at a specific latitude and longitude. For math, we continued to review adding mixed numbers, using common denominator to add or subtract fractions, converting improper mixed numbers to normal mixed numbers, and word problems."
"The student and I met to review for her final exam. She has a packet with at least 100 problems that we will attempt to complete. Today we discussed patterns, exponents, metric conversions, scientific notation, simplifying expressions, commutative property of multiplication, inequalities, absolute value, evaluating equations, and operations with integers."
"In today's session, the student and I prepared for his final exam. We continued where we last left off in the review packets the teacher has given him. We made sure to review each topic covered throughout the packet. We focused on the material relating to series, but also made sure to review the conic section material in detail. We worked through graphing and determining formulas based on given properties. He and I also reviewed geometric and arithmetic sigma notation again, because this is some of the more difficult material. Overall, he improved on the topics that we worked on last session, and was able to work through the conic section material with few errors and good intuitions."
"Today we spent our time working practice problems from all sections of the review, focusing particularly on topics that the student struggled with when we worked through them the first time. She was much improved on those types of problems. We talked about an alternate strategy for approaching percent questions, and that seems to be working better for her."
"The student has a math test on Tuesday. Today we went over his study packet. The student knows the material for the exam, he just needs extra practice. We finished the packet and tomorrow I will have practice problems for him so he can feel prepared for his test!"
"We went over a cumulative review for the final exam. This review covered everything we have done in the past month of working together. Overall, the student understands all of the material very well. There were a few questions and minor errors, but we will work on those more next time."
