Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went through and did problems on a test review for a test that the student will have in the near future. We specifically went over the types of graphs, graph equations, making algebraic equations from written expressions, and more. At first, he had some difficulties remembering the past topics on the review. I taught him the material by showing him the work and explaining the concepts. I also asked him to do many practice problems and other examples. I made a review sheet for him so that he can look and familiarize himself with the different types of graphs. He is a fast learner. Once he gets to practice the material sufficiently, he understands it much better."
"We went through some chapter reviews of lines and finding slopes from coordinate points. The student did well and only had a few mistakes, which I said just be sure to double check. She knew all the methods for finding the correct forms and answers. She did very well."
"We went through the prerequisites for polygons and quadrilaterals. The student has a positive attitude towards concepts and will do pretty well in it. I left him with a couple of assignments on polygons and an intense study on the mathematical times tables. He also did well with the previous concept covered."
"We went through the student's homework, focusing on perpendicular bisectors in the context of geometric proofs. She was getting some understanding, but she will need to practice more in order to be prepared for her upcoming test. I recommended that she write down each theorem on a single sheet so she can memorize/study them all in conjunction."
"We were able to finish up two parts of chapter 11 (4/5). The student's homework looked good. He needs to keep working on having clear notes!"
"We were reviewing for the student's upcoming Algebra test. The problems had to do with solving variables when you had three equations and three or two unknowns. We went over when to use substitution and when to use elimination as methods to solve for the variables. As a reminder to the student, substitution works when one of the variables is squared. If all of the equations are linear, elimination is faster."
