Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked through a series of geometry proofs. It took a little bit of time for her to get up to speed, but she proved to be a quick study and soon had the proofing process down pat. She was able to prove the congruency of triangles using a number of different geometric theorems, and I believe she is well-prepared for her next week of class."
"The first students and I worked on math only. We worked on number lines, addition and subtraction concepts in number line, adding fractions to a number line, and the concepts of number line usage in mathematics. The second student and I did both reading and math. In reading, we worked on reading comprehension, sequencing, vocabulary in cloze passages, and multi-syllable words. In math, we worked on single and double digit addition and subtraction. I left them with no extra practice since they had the homework and such from their school. A great session all around!"
"We covered using logs and exponents to solve for x and compute logs and exponents. For next time, we need to cover dividing fractions, exponent rules, algebraic simplification, and then move on to more complicated solving with logs."
"We went over combining like terms. The student was initially struggling with distributive properties that dealt with combining like terms. After going over it, I felt like she understood the concept. Since she hasn't learned this yet, I printed out a practice worksheet for her to learn. She made a 100 on her spiral review."
"Today, the student and I reviewed all of chapter 7 for tomorrow's test. We went over every problem on the study guide, as well as sample review questions from his textbook. He seems to understand the material well."
"The student and I covered the properties of exponents and word problems related to linear functions. He was able to easily grasp the definition of the properties of exponents. I suggested for him to rewrite the definition of the properties, and then I would ask him which of the properties looked similar to the problem. Once he could see it, then he could solve it. He appears to understand the properties because he can write them without looking them up. It is just when it comes to applying it that it seems a bit difficult. We will continue to work on this."
