Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I went over her review for Algebra 2. The topics included radian conversions, graphing sine and cosine functions, and writing sine and cosine functions. She did well on her last quiz, getting an 80. She definitely has a better understanding of the material, and I am confident she will do well on her test. I left her some problems to practice graphing of cosine and sine functions for her test."
"The student and I went over her review work to get her ready for her upcoming test. We were working on slopes/scatter plots, line of fit, graphing, and using the graphing calculator. Although she knew what to do most of the time, there were times she was stuck or didn't follow the right process to work the problem. She is a quick learner, but some things she just hasn't been taught yet. I was able to fill in the gaps for her so that she is confident and will do well on her test. She knows which areas are a struggle for her and knows what to do to remedy this. I love her attitude; she wants to know the right way to do things and is willing to do the work to get the right answer."
"The student and I went over his 9.1 homework and reviewed the problems he solved on his own. We also discussed his enrichment assignment. We then reviewed ethos, pathos, and logos, which he needed to refresh. We also discussed math problems he missed on class assignments."
"The student and I went over his Accuplacer exam review, which covered material from his entire year. He seemed to understand the problems but gets stuck on easy steps to the problems. I let him know that he must practice these problems because that is the only way to get more comfortable with the problems at hand."
"The student and I went over his homework and worked on mixed fractions and expressions of fractions. He is showing no issues with understanding this concept. He actually is able to solve these problems in his head without writing them out on paper."
"The student and I went over his homework on graphing and writing linear equations. He did pretty well on his own, I quizzed him on different kinds of slope (positive, negative, undefined, zero) and how to recognize each without doing calculations in his head. We also reviewed how to find slope from 2 points. I then showed him a short breathing exercise to help him transition to the next topic, which is simplifying expressions. We worked on multiplication property of exponents, combining like terms, raising a term to a power, and factoring out a common factor. He needed a little warming up, but overall, did very well on the material. I left him with a small packet of homework on simplifying expressions."
