Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"She did not have school today, so without homework to work on, we started with the unit fractions and their decimal value. In order to get to this value, I showed her the long division method with placeholders. Ideally, this should be the next topic they begin in her math class."
"She didn't have any new homework, so we completed an online review of chapter. She has a pretty good understanding of all of the material. Sometimes she just needs a little hint and then she remembers what type of problem it is and how to solve it. She doesn't think any of it is very hard so far; it's just a matter of remembering everything on the test and being accurate."
"She got a 92% on her last exam. We were really happy about that. Now, we are working on arranging integers, rationals, decimals, and square roots in order from least to greatest. She has the concept, but I want to work on that again to insure greater results. She really has exponents, positive and negative numbers, as well as grouping variables. I want to test her scientific notation skills."
"She had a lot of homework problems to go through, so we worked on those. I started the session by answering questions she had about any of the content that was covered in class. She had questions about how to interpret and solve problems with cube roots, fourth roots, when the numbers are written outside of the root symbol. Overall, she has a strong grasp on concepts regarding exponents and radicals that were found in class. She struggled a little bit with more basic ideas with fractions, but I worked to reinforce those concepts too."
"She had a number of worksheets to finish. First there was a solving quadratic equations with factoring. He had 8 of the 10 problems completed already with only one small calculation error on those, and then we finished the last two problems which were different than the rest. Then, he had a four page packet covering the graphs of quadratics, and again, he had it mostly finished but wasn't sure how to find the x- and y-intercepts on each problem. After we finished that, we spent the rest of the session on a P-SAT practice packet where he tried each problem, and I checked his work."
"She had a test to prepare for, so we covered transformations of graphs and finding angle relationships of parallel lines cut by a transversal. We went over her notes, finished a review, and I made up some sample problems on angle relationships. She understood the material and felt more comfortable with practice and help. She had an excellent attitude today."
