Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"This is the invoice for the past two Wednesdays. Last Wednesday we studied for her exam, which she got a 92 on! This week we went over logical statements, which she was pretty confident on. We also briefly looked at her Biology material, and we will look more in depth on Saturday."
"This tutoring is for Algebra 2. Today, we worked on completing the squares, solving quadratic equations, the quadratic formula, graphing parabolas, converting quadratic equations from one form to another, and finding the equation of a parabola, given the focus and the directrix. She continues to have issues with integers and whether to multiply, add, subtract, or divide. She improved on her understanding on each concept as the session progressed. I modeled, we did guided practice, and then she worked problems on her own with me in overwatch mode."
"This was a great session. He was able to finish up a project on conditional statements. We were able to find two advertisements that he could apply conditional statements to. We proofed the wording, and he is going to finish the project on his own. Following the project, we went over transversals and the relationships that it creates with parallel lines. He was able to show good understanding of both the vocabulary and the concept. We will meet again next week before his test to get him ready! Great job tonight! "
"This was a nice long session. We covered feasible regions and linear programming, solving inequalities, graphing absolute values, transferring information in a word problem to a two-variable set of two equations for use in substitution and elimination, and figuring out the coordinates of the interception between two lines."
"This was a very quick session to go over a few postulates and theorems relating to transversals and parallel lines. Most importantly, we looked at the vertical angle and alternate interior angle theorems and talked about how they are related and allow us to find many different angle measures."
"This was an instant session to solve 2 problems. These both involved coming up with shapes that have particular perimeters and areas. At first, I thought they had to be regular shapes, which made it much harder to graph on a Cartesian plane. After she told me that they could be irregular, I found an easy to graph solution for her."
