Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"She and I went over probability, fractions, and decimals. She's getting the hang of it! We also went over some word problems that seemed a little more difficult than the problems she was receiving in class."
"She and I went over shading Venn diagrams to describe sets. We spent the entire session doing examples and talking through these examples. We created our own language for getting through these problems so that she would be able to navigate them on her own for the test tomorrow. I was able to bring up a self correcting quiz on the topic that included 15 comprehensive practice problems. I instructed her to complete these, and if she had questions, she can text me tonight so I could help and so that everything was clear for her quiz tomorrow."
"She and I went over some problems she was having trouble with and completed her math homework for the night. She understands her math well but needs to make sure she takes her time and pays attention to details (positive and negative signs, switching the inequality sign, etc.) so she doesn't lose unnecessary points on tests. I also sent her a chart of Spanish nationalities for her to study for her upcoming test."
"She and I went through her assigned math homework during this session. That took very little time since it covered decimals; a topic that we have gone through extensively together. During the rest of the time, she they are not covering anything new at school, I went through some "hint-free" review problems with her. The material seems to be sticking well; it's just a matter of keeping her own focus throughout."
"She and I went through the subjects that have already been covered in her class and identified the most challenging ones: domain and range, limit problems, trigonometry functions and their inverses and conic sections. Today, we went over Domain and Range and the Limits, solving some extra practice problems on both of the topics. While I do think she understands those topics very well, I will be providing some more practice problems in the future, that will implement and build on these concepts. She also brought up that she is having a hard time putting together the new concepts when it comes time for the quizzes and exams, so I will find some more combination activities and problems for us to work on next time."
"She and I worked on algebra, specifically trying to identify an equation given the variable and the results. She does very well when the equation involves addition, subtraction, and multiplication. She pointed out that she struggles more with equations involving division, so we practiced those. She gets the idea very well, but then gets caught up trying to remember which number we're dividing by where. Student two and I continued building division and fraction skills. At first, he had a hard time seeing a pattern, but once he noticed it, he was able to move very quickly."
