Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed the student's geometry homework set with parallel lines and angles. She needed help a bit with the proofs, but she understands it when she sees it all laid out, step by step. I will send her some extra practice so she can get familiar with one- and two-step algebra equations, as well as other geometric concepts."
"We reviewed the student's test questions, while covering slope linear equations, point slope equations, standard line equation, and inequalities. After completing the test review, we looked up more practice questions to better reinforce the concepts."
"We reviewed the theorems for parallel lines and angles given a transverse. We also reviewed slopes and line equations as well as defined horizontal and vertical line slopes. In the remaining time of the session I quizzed the student with additional problems over the theorems she has covered in the last two weeks. She will notify me if there are any concepts in the next week that she is finding difficult, and we will focus on those since she has a quiz the following Friday. She took a quiz earlier this week and says she feels very confident on her performance. I am seeing improvement in her understanding of the concepts covered each week."
"We reviewed topics for the student's upcoming test. We reviewed on how to graph quadratics and absolute value equations. He was really great at that and did not need my help. We also looked at operations involving complex numbers; this was a quick review for him, and then he did well."
"We specifically worked on creating ratios and working with fractions. The student was struggling the most solving for the variable in a fraction setting. At the beginning of the session, the student had difficulties even with basic math because of how frustrated she was. By the end, she was able to work through few problems and started to enjoy it. We discussed scheduling strategies for study days. Since she has various classes and responsibilities, student was instructed to study/ work in 50 min chunks using a timer and alternate subjects, this would insure that she finishes all her work and works all areas of her brain. The student will continue to work on the math problems she has in her book to ingrain the pattern that we worked on today. Big win of the day that she's more relaxed with the subject and willing to work on more problems to get better."
"We spent some time going over the student's Caribbean History assignments. After that, we worked on an online practice test in Algebra. He had answered some questions; for these ones, I asked her how she got the answer she did, and walked her through the right way to solve it when she was wrong. We continued doing this for the remainder of the session."
