Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered solving linear, quadratic, and cubic equations. The student was making some minor errors with signs and balancing his equations, but he understood the things I explained to him quickly and was able to make some immediate improvements. He showed some sign of improvement in his math confidence as well. He is a quick learner and his foundations are good. I assured him that if he keeps practicing more regularly, he will make significant improvement soon."
"We covered some fractions and basic algebra. The student was struggling most with fractions and x- and y-intercepts. The student was pretty neutral about the material. I didn't included any study skills or strategies. She still had some problems to work when we hung up. By the end, she seemed to understand fractions a lot better."
"We covered subtracting integers by changing the subtraction problem to an addition problem. As you go through practice problems over the next few days, be sure to do mixed addition and subtraction. You're almost there! Just take your time and know that it's okay to make mistakes because they help you learn! See you Sunday!"
"We covered systems of equations, specifically solving for a different variable than was originally being solved for in the problem. The student did a great job of paying close attention to the steps and tips used to solve the equations. We discussed the need to sometimes use a reversal of the normal order of operations to move numbers and variables from one side of the equation to the other. I would recommend continued practice, as he showed great improvement in a short amount of time."
"We covered the basics of functions, and I helped her with a practice worksheet. Then we worked on solving equations, which is a big struggle for her right now. I referred her to some online resources in addition to what her teacher has given her. Extra practice in this area will build her confidence. The student responded very positively to what we covered, and I feel we made great progress."
"We covered the distributive property, expressions, and linear equations. The student struggled most with creating expressions for word problems. The student was very open about what she was having trouble with, and willing to re-learn some of the material from the past month of school. I showed her a step-by-step guide on how she could solve for variables in expressions and equations. I did not leave her with any extra practice, and I was able to see some of her previous homework. She scored well on everything except expressions."
