Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Conducted a review of probability and factoring polynomial expressions. Completed an overview of definitions and symbols of union and intersections of events. Discussed how wording translates in to problem solving and equations. In addition, we completed practice and examples to master each concepts."
"We went through his homework which involved calculating the surface area of cones, cylinders, and various types of pyramids. We also practiced the flash cards to help him memorize the different formulas."
"The student continued revisiting lesson and unit checkpoints from previous sessions. He was able to solve algebraic equations, work with perimeter of various shapes, calculate area for different shapes and find missing side lengths, find square roots, convert units, choose appropriate units for a given situation, find points on the number line, apply the greater than and less than notations, solve problems using multiplication or division, go from words to math, find absolute value, use negative numbers, add and multiply integers using the order of operations if needed. Throughout the session he joked around and worked cheerfully."
"The student and I reviewed his final homework assignment and started studying for his final exam. Today, I just gave him some additional problems/work related to the stuff we just did, hyperbola and ellipses. In the future, we're going to work backwards from there and forwards from the beginning, hopefully reviewing the entire semester rather quickly to identify weak spots, then hammer those until Monday."
"The student and I went over the mathematical concept of order of operations. I reaffirmed his existing knowledge in it while also reminding him about what PEMDAS is (parentheses, exponents, multiplication, division, addition and subtraction). We went over problems that he had missed for his college Algebra 2 assessment for order of operations. Also, I briefly reviewed some topics such as how to rationalize a denominator with a radical as well as how to take the squared, cubed, 4th, 5th and so on roots of a number. The student was very prepared to learn and seemed to be grasping the concepts very quickly and realizing his mistakes."
"This session we worked on the student's homework for class. They recently started a new unit and the student is having a bit of trouble with factoring and working with quadratic equations. We will continue to practice factoring until she is highly proficient. I will bring worksheets for her to practice so that this skill comes faster and more naturally."
