Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I continued working on test preparation for his upcoming test. We worked on going back over each section to make sure that he was solid on the material. He did awesome on the problems and needed a minimal amount of help with them!"
"The student and I covered a couple sections in her textbook. We went through the rules of exponents and how to go about simplifying them. We covered multiplying polynomials using the FOIL method. We also covered factoring various polynomials and outlined techniques and steps. Finally, we reviewed unit conversions and direct and inverse proportions."
"The student and I covered absolute value, inequalities, solving equations, completing the square and domain. The student has a test coming up next week. We are meeting tomorrow to make sure that he is completely comfortable with all of the concepts that will be on his test."
"The student and I covered Algebra 2 notes, previous quizzes, and homework. He struggled most with little mistakes and larger concepts, but clearly understood the mechanics of the material. I reviewed some of the overarching concepts of the material, and showed him a couple of tips that will help him avoid simple mistakes he makes from rushing through the problems. He had a packet with practice problems, and he did a homework set (that is optional since it's not graded). I think he is a very bright student and will succeed in his classes, once he takes his time and checks his work."
"The student and I covered circumferences and components of a circle. We looked at pi, radius, diameter, and how to calculate circumference. We then did a little examination of areas by looking at the area of a circle and square. The second student and I covered linear functions and how to calculate the components of them. We looked at a few examples of straight lines, noted different points like the y-intercept, and plugged in points to calculate linear slopes. I then had him do two example problems for determining the values of m and b in the function y=mx+b."
"The student and I covered concepts such as equation manipulation and basic algebraic rules of multiplication/division. Strategies included the creation of written steps for what you are to do at each step in a math problem. They noted improvement in problem-solving ability by writing down what was to be done at each step before proceeding with the step. They solved problems that before were too difficult for them with this strategy."
