Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I took notes on the sections of chapter 6, with vocabulary and examples. This is meant to help her ultimately prepare for the chapter 6 test. She also used the time to complete the first half of her next homework assignment."
"This was my first meeting with the student. After we quickly introduced ourselves, I had a short discussion with his mother detailing the specific problems he was encountering in his class. Based on her assessment, he has a strong understanding of the subject, but his teacher seems to be quite particular with her grading, which has lead to these difficulties. With this knowledge in mind, I worked through review problems concerning graphs and equations with him to assist him with his homework and gauge his strengths and weaknesses. For the most part, I agree that he has a strong understanding of this material; he was familiar with all the concepts and was comfortable simplifying equations. I did, however, notice that he occasionally rushed through problems and leapt to conclusions. In order to remedy this, I encouraged him to slow down and to check his answers by plugging in points or evaluating numbers such as the slope or y-intercept. Before his exam on Thursday, I recommended he go over some of the questions that were not assigned on his homework just to familiarize himself with the concepts tested."
"The student and I worked on graphing straight lines, manipulating equations in the slope-intercept form, and word problems."
"The student was getting ready for a test early next week dealing with absolute value equations and inequalities. In addition, we went over his PSAT scores, percentile rankings and question breakdowns."
"I covered revision of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of fractions. I also covered solving linear inequalities, and graphing their solutions with the student."
"We went over linear equations, intercepts, and graphing. He has a quiz on these topics tomorrow, so we worked on practicing these types of problems."
