Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over the student's school-assigned homework which covered the concept of 2-step inequalities. For the most part, he seemed to fully grasp this concept. We also went over all of the homework problems I left with him from last week, the majority of which he got correct."
"Today, we covered sections 87 and 88. It looks like the graphing is still giving her a few minor challenges. In this case, I'm going to put a review sheet together with a few conceptual practice problems that we can go over on Thursday. This way she can review all of the graphing concepts that have been covered."
"Today, the student and I looked over some homework questions on simplifying rational expressions. Afterwards, we did a lot of practice problems on using the properties of exponents. The more she practiced, the better she became with answering the questions correctly. This week's assignments are on exponents and rational expressions. She is to complete skill builder #18 (all) and #19 (even problems only). Depending how the practice problems go, we may look over some more of these type problems next week. I really enjoy working with her, and her ability to articulate what she struggles with is a great help when selecting extra practice."
"The student and I reviewed her inequality homework. She was doing pretty well; she just needed some support when writing inequalities from word problems, but she said they hadn't worked examples in class yet. When we finished this assignment, we worked together on a review extra credit assignment. She had been graphing lines by solving for zeroes, but I helped with graphing them using the slope intercept equation, which is typically a faster method."
"We first completed the student's ORQ for this unit, and we started to continue with unit 3. We spent the rest of the session reviewing past concepts including perpendicular lines, slope, graphing lines and points and more."
"I began by giving the student a quiz on last week's enrichment vocabulary. He hadn't reviewed his words, so he didn't do so well, but that was understandable given the studying he was doing. I gave him some additional words for next week. After that we reviewed questions for the reading section and the quantitative section. We will do more review next week. He is generally accurate, but he can be slow at times. I worked with him on strategies to speed up his work."
