Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We began reviewing for an upcoming exam. She had no issues with most of the calculations but just needed help remembering key identities and definitions. After a quick review, she needed little additional help. We spent the rest of the session completing a study guide."
"We began the session by reviewing the mistakes that she had made on her statistics homework assignment. She had taken a test on the material earlier in the day and felt very confident about it. We spent the rest of the session going over the questions that she had gotten wrong in the English practice ACT section that she took last time. Luckily, she was able to self correct most of her mistakes. For homework, I asked her to try and correct the remaining problems that we were unable to get to together."
"We began the session with the student one on Lesson 2.4 Deductive Reasoning and finished with Lesson 2.2 Finding the nTH Term. All homework was completed, and we primarily focused on working through the math problems verbally. He is very bright; however, I would like to have him write out his numbers on paper so he can have more than the final answer to refer back to prior to an exam/quiz. We finished the session with student two, and I must say that I am extremely proud of her efforts this session. We worked through Chapter 2 Polynomial, Power, and Rational Functions. She started out a little reserved but towards the end of the session she had a major breakthrough moment where she practically solved a quite difficult problem with little help. I find this as great progress because she is beginning to work out the critical information from each problem and using those key pieces to solve the problem. I am definitely looking forward to our next session!"
"We began with angle congruence and supplementary rules. Then, we did problems with parallels. These simpler problems were review before I had the student work on multi-step geometry problems with an algebraic component. She still struggles with separating out the pieces of information from a problem on her own. If she's told which parts to focus on, then she does great. Next week we will continue reviewing multi-step problems until she is more independent."
"We began with discussion of conjecture, inductive reasoning, and truth tables before moving to theorems and proofs. The student is picking up the fundamentals and demonstrating strong algebra skills that he has carried forward from the previous school year. I recommended he utilize flashcards to reinforce his study and memorization of the fundamental theorems as they will likely be a big part of next week's exam."
"We briefly covered proofs. The student was assigned a project/quiz over corresponding angles, interior angles, and exterior angles. We also went over notes pertaining to distance between two points/lines."
