Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student was working on solving pairs of equations with two variables, both by graphing and by substitution. I helped her understand the relationship between how it shows up on the graph, and how it shows up when solved algebraically. Then she finished her homework assignment on this topic."
"The student will receive her test tomorrow, so today, we did more review. We also covered a new subject, elimination. She understands how to do graphing, substitutions, and elimination, but it is difficult for her to remember how to connect the rules she memorized with the proper situations to use them. We will practice more next week."
"The student worked diligently on learning how to combine like terms and use the distributive property. We also solved equations involving the combination of the distributive property and combining like terms. Exponents with variables were touched upon, leading up to the exponent rules. She stayed on task for the duration, and then worked on solving inequalities and graphing them. Word problems were tackled, as well as double switch backs of the inequality sign."
"The student worked his homework assignment with minimal intervention on my part. I suggested some alternative approaches to a couple of the problems. We then looked over two or three earlier quizzes, correcting problems that were missed earlier. He seems to have a fairly good command of the subject matter. I will be looking to make sure he takes direct approaches to obtaining answers to the assigned problems."
"The student worked on a few problems on her homework. She completed most of the work on her own, and needed just a little help on the other problems. She was able to complete the whole assignment before the session was over, and she asked questions when necessary. I enjoyed working with her, and look forward to working with her in future sessions."
"The student worked on a review of congruent shapes. He covered the corresponding parts of the congruent triangles congruent theorem, angle side angle theorem, side side side theorem, and side angle side theorem."
