Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We used this session as a jumping off point for her to work on dividing fractions. We worked through many of these problems until she could complete multi-step problems on her own. She showed improvement by the end of the session."
"Today we worked with finding the distance between two points on a graph using the Pythagorean theorem. The student is showing a lot of improvement and I believes she is ready to move on to the next step of learning how to calculate multi-variable algebra and FOIL them as well. We began an introductory segment on transformations of graphs using functions to determine the size and orientation."
"This session we worked on translating word problems into expressions. We discussed various key words that indicate the operations, and how some of the words are similar, suggesting similarities between operations. While we focused primarily on the homework assignment, I tried to integrate as much division practice as possible. We also discussed the commutative property of addition and how it does not apply to subtraction or division."
"This was my initial session with the student. We worked on an reviewed material for his math exam the following day. He understands the concepts and can complete the work independently. We are going to focus our study on concepts above what he is learning in class. We will focus on algebra during our next session. He has a placement test in Algebra in a few weeks and would like to place into it."
"The student continues to excel on his multiplication tables. While he started out with numerous errors on both his 6 and 7 multiplication tables, he now can complete sets of "math-minutes" with hardly any errors at all. I was pleased to hear that he received a 100% on his most recent math assessment in school. Today, we continued to work with two and three digit multiplication - a challenge for which the student is both willing and ready for."
"The student and I covered measures of central tendency and practiced constructing and reading various plots. He grasps the math concepts very well. He planned to complete his homework assignment on his own and we plan to meet again tomorrow to further prepare for his upcoming test."
