Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We continued to cover ACT math in the section today. We began by addressing concerns she had with some specific problems during a practice test, including trigonometry and functions. After discussing those problems, we reviewed matrices and sine/cosine waves before doing several problems in her practice book."
"We covered concepts and real-world applications for equivalent fractions. The student also learned the formula for area, and visual representations. We discussed strategies for solving word problems and inferential comprehension. She is making progress in using problem solving strategies and reading comprehension."
"We covered conic sections: ellipses, circles, and hyperbolas. We also covered terms double-napped and generating line (also for conics). The student seemed to understand the material quite well towards the end."
"We covered dividing decimals, word problems, greatest common factor, and least common multiple. The students were both positive toward the material that was reviewed. I showed them how to divide with decimals in the dividend and the divisor. I left them with extra practice from the workbook to complete before next week. They understand the concepts pretty well."
"We covered factoring 2nd degree polynomials and some word problem skills as well as the order of operations. There were some struggles with the last step of factoring polynomials with a coefficient other than 1 for the x squared term, but otherwise it went well. The student was very receptive to the ideas I presented to him, but often struggled with the concepts behind the steps I was teaching him in factoring. I recommended more practice on his part and will likely return to factoring briefly again in the next session."
"We covered factoring polynomials, simplifying radicals, identifying rational/irrational numbers, and using equations. She was positive and quickly caught on to how to eliminate answer choices, based on integer rules and FOIL. She has all the work she needs with her online program. She scored 90-95% on the quizzes and I'm very happy we were able to cover three quizzes in an hour and a half!"
