Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered comparisons (mean, median, mode, and twice than) of a series of numbers. The student received high scores on all the quizzes and assessments I have seen."
"The student and I focused on his assessment worksheet that he received from school. This helped me get an understanding of his pre-algebra skills. He appears to understand the majority of the concepts covered on the review sheet. I believe that with some practice and worksheets, he will become more proficient."
"Today, I covered the nth roots. I worked with the student to solve the problems. There wasn't any test and I did not leave her with any practice. Another session is scheduled specifically for tomorrow due to her upcoming exam."
"The student and I discussed the progress of our last tutoring session. She stated she understood the material covered in last session. This session we covered the difference between direct and inverse equations and how to graph them. We completed numerous problems on her homework, and she also reported this session to be helpful. We scheduled our next session for Tuesday at 1:30 pm"
"I helped her go through the new subjects she had learned in class. They covered y intercepts, axis of symmetry, and the x-coordinate of the vertex. I also explained to her the difference between a vertex being a maximum or a minimum."
"The student and I worked on graphing systems of inequalities, with an emphasis on how to rearrange inequalities to get them in the desired format. He seemed to pick up the concept as we worked on it, so hopefully that progress translates to his test results."
"We covered the concepts of spans and spaces in detail again in preparation for his upcoming test. We also performed (No Suggestions) determinants. Finally, we determined linear dependency. I did not see any grades."
"The student and I went over a large chunk of chapter 10 in her textbook. This chapter dealt with matrices. We used row reduction methods to find the values of x, y and z. She picked up on the concepts very quickly. I told her she needs to practice these problems in order to get faster at the method."
"The student and I worked on position, velocity, and acceleration functions. We did a couple practice problems where we were given position and had to take the derivatives to find velocity and acceleration. Then, we set each equation equal to zero, wrote the intervals for the particle moving to the right and left, wrote intervals for the particle accelerating to the right and left, and graphed the position/movement of the particle. We also discussed how to find when the particle is "speeding up" (velocity and acceleration are the same sign) and "slowing down" (velocity and acceleration are different signs). Then, we found total distance traveled and the displacement."
"The student and I worked on 1st grade Math and Reading. Her math homework was simple subtraction problems and her reading work was reading and rewriting a few simple words with the long a sound (make, made, take, rake, bake, and lake)."
"The student seems to be doing relatively well in Chemistry and Algebra II, especially after going over her class materials with me. Occasionally, she does not understand a topic in class, but she certainly learns very quickly after I have explained the topic. Today, we completed her Algebra worksheet."
"With our access to the textbook online, the student and I continued forward with our studies and practiced on creating and solving equations. We will continue to work through the book and go back in material if necessary."
