Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today, we continued to go over interest rate -- simple interest and interest compounded annually. Student A did much better today with the topic than she did on Tuesday. She had a positive attitude. I believe she has a strong understanding of the concept, and we can continue to work on strengthening her understanding of interest compounded annually (or semi annually, monthly, etc.). I worked with Student B on factoring polynomials with negative numbers. He was also much better with the topic than on Tuesday. We can continue to strengthen his understanding over this topic."
"Today we worked on interpreting scatter plots to determine if they are positive, negative, or have no association. The student also graphed scatter plots and found the line of best fit. She used the slope intercept formula to determine the slope and find the y intercept. She did well and was able to complete her homework assignment."
"We worked on a social studies assignment, which we will continue to review. We then went over percents and I taught the student a new method of calculating percent values. He gets the answer right every time with few mistakes."
"We continued our review for final exam. We went over a new packet recently given in class with a practice section from a standardized test. I included both multiple choice and free response problems. It was a good chance to survey a lot of different material and discuss test taking strategies."
"I covered 6th grade math objectives like probability, data analysis, and pre algebra. The student felt challenged with checking her work to make it was correct and she seemed to struggle with getting started on some problems. She kept a very positive attitude throughout the sessions. I did not leave her with any extra practice this time but I will make a test for the student to take at our next session."
"The student and I went over adding and subtracting equations with quadratic exponents. He did well on the concept and we are going to move into preparing him for his last test and also his final."
