Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We continued doing practice problems for the student's real estate math exam. The last session was a review of all the concepts that would be on the exam. For this session, we focused on those specific areas in which she needs to focus her time on studying. We studied geometry problems - specifically those involved in properties of complicated shapes. She needs to continue to review drawing the layout of the property, finding the dimensions of both the rectangular and triangular sections of the property, the formulas for area of both rectangles and area, and to convert from square footage to acreage. She does very well with the percentage problems using the "T" method. She should continue to review recognizing what pieces of the "T" are given in the world problem. I look forward to hearing how she does on her exam."
"The student was able to easily complete basic computations in whole numbers, fractions, and percentages, as well as do some basic algebra. We then did a practice test. We completed questions 1-4 before ending the session. She needed a bit of direction in understanding expressions interpreting word problems with "less than or equal to" and a constant and variable added, but she indicated she understood this after we discussed it. We touched on locating points on coordinate grids at the end of the session. I think she will do fine to be ready to retest for math in three weeks."
"We reviewed for the student's test. We discussed the steps for the problems: finding the constraint EQs, graphing/ finding intersection points, and finally inputting the intersection points into a function to find a max or min."
"Reviewed classwork and homework about division. The student struggled a bit at first, but after discussing some strategies, she understood."
"I worked with the student on more conversion problems using Kg and g. We worked on converting numbers as well as mathematical operations with said numbers."
"We covered basic algebra concepts and worked on TSI test practice. Her attitude was very good. She was struggling with remembering some concepts from algebra but we worked on them and she was able to remember them."
