Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"In this session, we focused on two different homework problems. One focused on a two independent sample t test. The second dealt with a 2 x 2 contingency table. We walked through the process of calculating the relevant statistics, obtaining p values in MS Excel, and interpreting the results. He definitely was understanding the material, and I offered help in the future if anything ever came up again."
"Our first session went great and only went for an hour. She stuck with me really well, and I enjoyed meeting her. We went over multiplying like terms with exponents and distributing exponents throughout terms in parenthesis. We also looked at negative exponents and solved how to make them positive. After working through the homework, we were at a good stopping point. I really enjoyed meeting her and her mother, and I look forward to continuing to work with them."
"Our first session went very well. The student is a fun, bright student who wants to do well. We studied for both her math and social studies tests. For math, we covered rational numbers, integers, whole numbers, opposites, absolute values, and converting between decimals and fractions."
"Our homework went well tonight, with the student catching on quickly and hardly needing any help by the end. Unfortunately he will need to do a retest. He seemed confident in his ability to do the problems he'd gotten wrong. I think he makes small mistakes and works too quickly during tests--the scores don't properly reflect how well he knows the material. He is going to need to keep working on patience, caution, and double checking his work on exams. We'll work on this in future sessions."
"Our session focused on multiplication strategies. The student completed several short assessments for addition and multiplication to determine the root of his multiplication struggles."
"Our session focused on translating verbal descriptions into mathematical expressions, and solving word problems such as uniform motion and mixture problems. We worked through how to identify what question is being asked, assigning variables, and expressing unknown quantities in terms of the variable. We then solved each of the problems. The student did well and took detailed notes."
