Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We continued to quiz on the student's math concepts. She is slowly increasing her score. We reviewed the rules for dealing with integers prior to the quiz and talked about test techniques. She has a test next week so we will work on these specific concepts (operations with decimals and fractions to include solving algebraic equations). In addition, we reviewed her school assignments and discussed using flashcard programs to help her study for her upcoming exams. Her enthusiasm remains strong. She has a great attitude towards her learning."
"The student and I worked through converting improper fractions to mixed numbers and the reversal. He also reviewed and practiced converting fractions to similar fractions in order to add fractions and subtract fractions. He also used his long division techniques to convert large improper fractions into mixed numbers."
"I covered with Student A translating word expressions into algebraic expressions. I also covered with her a review packet based on those concepts. I covered with Student B simplifying radicals and exponential expressions. I also reviewed a homework packet based on the concepts covered."
"I covered adding two digits by one digit (2 by 2 as well). He struggled adding two digit by two digit at first, but got it later. The student was excited when he got the question correct. I gave him math strategies in order to make everything easier for the student. The student really enjoyed the session; he understands the material."
"Yesterday, the student and I worked on multi-step word problems involving multiplication, division, addition, and subtraction. She knew how to start the problems, but she would sometimes get confused about whether to add or subtract from the number already given in the problem or whether to multiply or divide. When she slows down and writes every step out, she has no problem solving the problems."
"The student is doing well on her current course content - working with monomials and polynomials. We worked on factoring quadratics, and she is about 95% accurate. Solid factoring skills will benefit her greatly in high school and on future standardized tests."
