Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered more complex algebraic solutions. We worked on writing the equations and checking your work. I focused on the idea of writing out equations with quantities related to each other in terms of a single variable. We went over her homework packet and some extra credit problems."
"We covered order of operations, proportions, and graphing. We also solved double equations for x and y. She was introduced to solving two equations for x and y using the substitution method. She was not used to this but picked up quickly. Attitude was great. Very sweet young lady. I gave her a mental math skill set to use and let her know that we will be working on similar problems next week. Good session."
"We covered Prime Factorization, different ways to manipulate fractions across an algebraic equation, domain and range, what a function is and how to tell if an expression or graph is a function, independent and dependent variable, and the coordinate plane."
"We covered proportions and word problem setups. The student needed help with understanding how to take a word problem and set it up into an equation. She seemed ready and willing to learn how to solve it, and wanted to know what she was doing wrong. I covered how to translate common math word problems into equations, and how to easily set up proportions."
"We covered rational and exponential expressions, completing the square, and solving given expression. We then used the quadratic equation to solve polynomial expressions with the highest power of 2 (i.e., quadratic expressions). The student was very lively and participated well throughout the tutoring session."
"We covered sequences of numbers. The first set of practice problems involved finding the nth term in a sequence. The second set of practice problems involved writing a recursive formula for sequences of numbers. The final set of practice problems involved writing a sequence of numbers when given an initial value and the recursive formula."
