Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today, the student and I went over the Ch. 3 review of inequalities and their solutions. She struggled a bit with compound inequalities but was able to successfully grasp the concept after working a few problems. She was motivated and ready to start. Wins from the last session: she received a 100% on her quiz on applications of linear systems! She is doing very well in the class."
"Today, the student and I worked on writing linear equations in slope intercept form, given slope and y intercept, given two points, and given a graph. She learned and used the formula for finding slope, and applied all of the above to word problems successfully."
"Today, the student had more time to work on his semester project. I went over the rubric with him to make sure he includes everything to get full credit on his project. He said he finished about 3 out of 10 slides in class today, so we continued working on what he would add for the next slides. We went over all 10 vocabulary words that he needs to include in his project. I encouraged him to use correct math terminology for his definitions so that he could earn full credit on the slides."
"Today, the student was learning linear equations, graphs of linear equations, and point-slope form (y=mx+b). The student had been taught these concepts in a way that did not resonate with her learning style, so I spent a portion of the session going over the concepts concerning linear (1st-order) equations and their graphs. Afterward, we were able to work through several of the student's homework problems -- which the student now seems to "get the hang of.""
"Today, the student was preparing for her chapter 7 test on Monday. She did very well with her review of solving linear systems using graphing, substitution, and elimination as well as graphing systems of linear inequalities. We had a few word problems, and they were a little trickier, but she did well with a little help! Her attitude was awesome, as usual!"
"Today, we again reviewed and worked on equations involving weighted averages. I am working to convey the information in a similar fashion that his instructor does. Using this one-on-one time to overcome these communication gaps will continue to pay off as he advances throughout high school."
