Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I continued to work on her high numbered addition facts and then started on subtraction. She was able to apply her knowledge regarding addition to figure out specific subtraction facts. We also played a couple of competition games that required her to answer quickly and correctly in order to gain points! She did great! I am so proud of her progress! Next time, we will continue to work on the subtraction skill and incorporate decimals as well!"
"The student and I continued to work on homework for Chapter 9. We worked on finding the maximum y value of a quadratic function, determining the x value at the maximum, writing equations to represent and solve word problems on finding the maximum, completing the square, and using the quadratic formula to solve quadratic equations. He has a good understanding of the concepts and did well on the problems."
"The student and I continued with review of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. She is still working on memorizing multiplication facts, and is improving. We also read a couple of chapters from the Saddle Club books. She had a great attitude for this session!"
"The student and I continued working on algebra. She's gotten more comfortable with the idea of variables, and that a letter stands for "some number." A major win from today was when we were trying to solve for the identity of a variable using the "guess, check, and revise" method, where we were supposed to guess a possible value for x and then plug it in to check. After several problems, she said, "Can't we just divide (by the coefficient)?" This is exactly what she'll learn to do next, and I was proud that she was able to figure it out just by practicing."
"The student and I continued working on his test preparation. We worked on solving equations, and I created a practice test for him to complete. He did an awesome job and needed very little assistance with the problems!"
"The student and I continued working on the fractions and naming them. We also worked on adding dollars and cents included in the word problems. Her social studies homework consisted of 29 vocab words that I had her look up in the back of the book, and then compose the definition in her own words."
