Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student needed to study for her Precalculus final, so we went over problems from her review guide provided by the teacher. We were able to get through more than 2/3rds of the problems covering linear functions (especially point-slope form and when to use it versus slope-intercept form), quadratic functions (finding the vertex and roots), polynomial functions (end behavior, solving for the roots by factoring, and odd and even functions), exponential and logarithmic functions, and general asymptotes. We covered a lot of material! She was focused, took good notes, and worked hard to understand it all in such a short amount of time."
"The student once again exceeded expectations in his session. He worked on the intricacies of systems of equations, first debugging an elimination problem, and then practicing a substitution problem, which he first said was challenging for him. However, he did an excellent job solving it. I was so glad to see him thriving in his math class."
"The student passed her test, and her mom was so happy. The student will be taken out of the class to join a small reading group during school. I read her some books from school several times. Then we played the Monkey Barrel game, and finally, did subtraction and addition facts."
"The student picked up the concepts very well. I asked him to review the concepts from earlier in the semester since it seems like he is a little shaky on product rule and quotient rule. Otherwise, great work! I will see you tomorrow."
"The student practiced dividing fractions, dividing exponents, and solving equations for x. He has really mastered these concepts. He then studied for a test that he will take on Wednesday covering domain, range, asymptotes, and inverses of functions. He understands the material well and seems confident. He also completed online assignments covering multiplying polynomials with multiplication tables."
"The student practiced numbers to 100 with her dead over the weekend, so we began today with recognizing and writing various numbers. She did very well. When we went back to 11-20, she was more unsure, especially with 12 and 20. We also continued to practice with addition and subtraction sentences. In reading, we began to use sounds to build words that are common in the stories we've read so far. She is still struggling with what letters make what sounds. Continuing to practice at home will help tremendously. We ended by reading a new story, drawing her favorite part, and writing a sentence to go with it. We worked very hard, and the student is really beginning to move forward!"
