Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"This was our first session, so we covered his homework assignment, which was only 2 questions but he did extra problems on the worksheet for practice. The homework assignment covered mean absolute deviation. He has good math skills and seemed to recall the information from class well. He had a good attitude towards doing the work, and seems to understand that he needs to work hard if he wants to improve his grades, C is "passing" but he said maybe he could work towards a B in math. We also discussed his intensive math course."
"Today we covered lesson 96. This contained a review of various lessons for the year, including converting percents to fractions and decimals, finding area/perimeter/volume of various shapes, mean/median/mode/range, F.O.I.L, solving algebraic equations for x, and solving square roots."
"Today we covered the conversion between polar and rectangular equation. The student has some problems with polar graphing and transaction among different angles. I showed him the basic idea to convert parameter t or the t to x and y, and we did a couple more questions for practice besides his practice exam."
"Today with we did some review problems for practice as well as going over her homework. In total this consisted of properties, solving for x in different algebraic equations, and using ratios to "discover" which should be considered to cutest of the animals portrayed (ignoring personal preferences)."
"We started a new unit on exponents today. I was impressed that he picked up the new material quickly and even had time to take the mastery test, where he scored 8/10. We had time to work on the next section even and he was understanding it right away."
"I wrote several multiplication problems down and asked the student to arrange the answers from lowest to highest. I also rolled different kinds of dice in pairs and asked him to multiply the values that came up. I showed him how to break down slightly larger problems (ex: 3*16) into simpler ones he already knew (ex: (3*10) + (3*6) ). I suggested more practice on the multiples of 6 through 9."
