Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today's session covered an intro to geometry topics such as plane, parallel, perpendicular and oblique lines, and angles. We also continued working individually on a practice standardized test."
"The student and I worked hard at preparing him for his math test, covering graphing and solving for inequalities. By the end of the session, he showed a very clear understanding of the concepts. I am confident he is going to do well on the exam, so I look forward to hearing about his success soon."
"The student and I met in preparation for an upcoming test. She's working on derivatives and integrals of logarithmic, exponential, and trigonometric functions. We reviewed derivative rules and discussed why the tenor of Calculus BC changes so drastically in Chapter 6."
"The student showed me the online extra practice that is set up for him through school. I plan to push him in each problem we go over to examine how and why he is doing the problem. He seems to be comfortable with me. Today we did some fraction practice from a workbook he has been going over with his mom. He thinks there will be a test Thursday or Friday of next week."
"Today, the student and I focused on subtracting mixed fractions where you have to borrow from the whole number to make the fraction larger. He seemed to rework the way in which he was originally approaching the problem and think differently about the equations. After working through a few problems together, he was able to complete several on his own. We then focused on rounding. We worked on identifying which digit was in which place (tens, hundreds, thousands, etc.) and how, after rounding to that place, to change the rest of the number. He did really well!"
"The student and I worked on spelling and math. Math consisted of fractions (part to whole shaded pictures). He did extremely well with the math, and he also did well with spelling, eventually getting all words correct. He's also shown some improvement with multiplication. His attitude was great today during the session. He wanted to see if he could complete some math problems on his own without assistance."
