Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I reviewed all the relevant information for his test the next day. We refined his skills and understanding of inequality statements and how to verify units for dimension problems. We spent the majority of the time reviewing the remainder of the topics on his review sheet."
"We went over how to translate word problems into a system of equations in order to solve for the missing information. We then covered how to find rational zeroes for quadratic equations and how to divide polynomial equations using long division. The student has a good command of the material. She just needs a little bit of guidance to help her along on some of the problems. Overall, she feels very comfortable with the material and should do well on her next exam."
"The student and I spent most of the time going over his past assignments. I helped him correct his mistakes and made sure he understood exactly what he did wrong (which was usually a small error with the formulas or calculation). The assignments we covered mainly had to do with converting fractions to decimals in order to determine the largest value. We also covered rational numbers, integers, and some area formulas. When we finished, he had questions about dot plots and quartiles. Just like last week, he showed a clear understanding of most of the topics."
"We covered 8th grade algebraic topics. This included fraction word problems, constants of proportionality, mark up prices, percent error, slope intercept and multiplying fractions. The student did very well."
"The student had a homework assignment involving percentage, base and rate. I put the problems algebraically and we practiced solving for variable. He knows that 30% of 100, means to multiply. He can change a percent to a decimal and vice versa. He just needs a refresher when starting a lesson. He calculated several multiplication and division problems on his own. He was getting better at deciding how to isolate the variable. He completed the worksheet. We then reviewed counting money (coins) and how to count up to give back change. He needs more practice on making friendly amounts (multiples of 10 or 5)."
"Today, we finished Chapter 10 in the math book and reviewed for the Chapter 10 test. Then we got through Chapter 11, Lessons 1 and 2 of social studies. We began to prepare for the Greek God oral presentation. The student picks things up quickly but he's having a hard time focusing lately."
