Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I went over his homework. He had some difficulty in writing sentences. (He usually answers questions using only one word and not a sentence.) I required him to answer the questions in complete sentences. We also reviewed the homework to ensure accuracy."
"The student and I went over his last quiz. The concepts covered were simplifying, factoring, and solving complex polynomials; finding GCF, LCM, and roots of polynomials; and word problems involving polynomials. He has a great attitude toward this material and is not struggling with any of the current concepts. He has a quiz next week."
"The student and I went over his math homework. His mother takes a picture of the work and sends it to me before each session. He is beginning to work on factors of numbers and understanding how some numbers are factors of other numbers, and others aren't. We practiced some of the problems and reviewed the problems he had already completed."
"The student and I went over how to find points on a sine/cosine curve. We walked through the activity she started at school and continued to work through the rest of the worksheet past the assigned segment to get ahead of the class. She definitely started to understand how to solve these problems towards the end of the session and seemed to be very comfortable with the material."
"The student and I went over investments and interests when compounded at different rates. She was very interested in this. She was able to use the formulas, but the logic behind them was difficult for her. She was glad to have a tutor to help her understand these ideas. We plan to meet in the morning tomorrow."
"The student and I went over methods of solving two equations using a graphing calculator as well as finding the extrema of a cubic equation using a graphing calculator. We completed problems together using his calculator so that he would get more comfortable with his calculator. I advised him to continue to practice with his calculator to get more comfortable since he will most likely be tested on this material."
