Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We continued with quadratic equations and methods towards solving them. The student had no issues with solving by factoring or formula, but needed a little assistance using the completion of squares. I gave him step-by-step instructions on the method, and made sure he saw my steps put in action before he tried it out. By the end of the session, he was able to handle the method."
"We continued working through the CPM textbook problems. Some of the topics covered included algebra review (graphing and solving equations), areas, probabilities, and transformations. Our problems today had a nice mixture of algebra and geometry concepts, showing how they can be put together to solve problems (for example, performing geometry problems on a Cartesian graph)."
"We covered ACT math. We finished the practice exam that we started last session, and we started the next practice exam. The student still seems to have the same problems as he did before with slight improvement. I believe he will steadily improve as he learns more techniques to solve problems more quickly. We will continue to work on this."
"We covered adjacent, vertical, complementary, and supplementary angles, linear pairs, and types of polygons. The student struggled at first with identifying linear pairs and vertical angles, so we went over those in detail and he understood them much better. He had a positive attitude. He took a quiz and did great. The session was a win."
"We covered algebra today and found the students' areas of weakness from the assessment test I sent them over the weekend. We will focus in the following weeks on solving quadratic expressions, working with the equations of lines, absolute value expressions, and fraction/decimal conversions."
"We covered an introduction in basic geometry. We went over lines, types of angles, relationships between angles, and finding angle values algebraically. The student struggled very little and asked many good questions surrounding how transverse lines create angle relationships. She had a great attitude throughout."
