Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I brought some PEMDAS worksheets for the student to do and determined that he does in fact have some deficits in applying these concepts consistently, and some issues working with negative numbers. I went through a number of problems with him, and left him with a sheet of practice homework problems to complete for our next session. We then continued to review material for his final exam coming up. We went through inequalities, which he handled fairly well after I reminded him of some of the principles."
"Graphing is definitely the theme of the day! As always, graphing is difficult for my students, but in general, the student shows good retention from our previous lessons! That's always great."
"The student and I reviewed mostly chapter 9 material to prepare for his math final. This included the quadratic formula, simplifying radicals, and substitution. He definitely has a good grasp on these problems."
"The student and I continued to review for her final exam tomorrow. We worked a lot on simplifying fractions with negative exponents, different forms of equations of lines, and systems of equations. She has the best grip on the line equations, though she did ask me for help with the point-slope form of a line. I also explained solving systems of equations through substitution today. She still struggles with negative exponents. I told her to ask herself what the negative exponent is attached to so that she understands which elements to flip over the fraction bar."
"We were reviewing for her final tomorrow. The material was everything covered this year and we worked through the review sheet she had. It was mostly solving equations, inequalities and graphing. She did most of the work herself and I was just helping her if she had any questions. She did so well and I believe she will do very well tomorrow on her exam!"
"Today we reviewed the relationships between linear functions, how to spot a linear and exponential function, finding the centers of rotation for a given point and its image, finding center of rotation of a plane figure and finally the line of symmetry for a plane figure."
