Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We worked through two examples of the most complicated equation, with the student checking that he could follow each step and that he thoroughly understood how to work the problem."
"Reviewed for Test 1 - Proportions, Ratios, Word Problems, Mixtures, Exponential Function, Algebraic Fractions, Exponents, Solving Systems of Linear Equations"
"Reviewed point-slope questions from previous session. Introduced exponent rules involving multiplication and division, then did problems to practice them."
"The student did great tonight and was able to stay on track and walk me through his thought process and approach for each of his math problems. He is obviously a diligent student and had checked with his teacher on the problems that concerned him the most, and applied different techniques to find the most effective way to solve each problem. He says he feels very confident with the material right now, so as long as he does a good review he should be good for his test."
"I began giving the student enrichment vocabulary that he will be quizzed on every week. We practiced spelling and context sentences. We also did a grammar review of clauses, and I introduced the concept of relative clauses."
"Today we covered the Pythagorean theorem. The student had some homework, so we went over some of the word problems that he was having trouble with. Since his problems all dealt with triangles, I advised him to draw out a picture when he has a tricky word problem. I think this helped quite a bit. After going over his homework problems, we finished out the session by doing a couple more Pythagorean theorem problems."
