Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We worked on logs, exponents, and probability. She is very focused and intelligent. I left her with some practice problems. It went very well. No concerns."
"The student and I reviewed for his last unit test before break. The test is on logs, natural logs, exponential functions, and the number "e." We completed his entire review packet. He felt very comfortable with the material. No concerns!"
"The student sent me his homework that involved finding the mean and median of various data sets. After a quick review on the definitions of both of them, we proceeded to complete and check his homework. His arithmetic is improving! He is doing tedious math without making errors. After his homework, I then introduced to him the term "mode." We finished off our lesson with a problem involving a data set of 20 numbers! Good job!"
"During this session, the student completed her homework and we worked on adding and counting money. She still needs help with identifying coins. We also worked on adding numbers faster and using base ten models to add and subtract. During the next session, we will work on subtraction word problems."
"The student and I focused on the concepts of time and decimals. She has no problem telling time and seemed to speed right through that portion. Following along in her book, I asked her questions that involved adding time, like "If you wake up at 7:45 and it takes you 15 minutes to get ready for school, what time will you be ready?". She had no problem adding the time using standard algorithm. She requested to review decimals, so I started by trying to give her some word problems to solve. She seemed to gain confidence when we turned it into a little game and she had to put the numbers in the right place in a decimal. I would like to review this concept again as well."
"The student and I looked over her most recent benchmark. We re-worked the problem and then I had her do the same problem and strategy with different numbers. I have noticed she sometimes needs help to determine which function to use but we will review more during our next session."
