Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on some worksheets that I was able to pull up regarding the material that her class was going to work on in the upcoming week - it was all based on two step variable equations. She picked up this fast once she got used to seeing these types of problems. We also started working on combining like terms and understanding why they act the way they do."
"The student and I worked on the Bill of Rights for his upcoming exam on them. We also worked on adding and subtracting decimals again. Then I introduced a new concept to the student; mean, median, and mode. I only had to explain these a few times before he grasped the concept. I told him to take notes and study because he would be getting quizzed next time we got together."
"The student and I worked on the new chapter, got the majority of the problem set completed, and discussed the method to complete the remaining problems. She has a midterm in two weeks, and we have some additional practice problems that we can do in the next session that should prepare her for the test."
"The student and I worked on the questions he missed in the review packet. We also completed the rest of the packet on writing expressions to represent word problems, solving the expressions, and distributive property. Next, he completed additional worksheets on distributive property, factoring binomials, and plugging numbers into variables in order to solve expressions."
"The student and I worked on the review for her upcoming test. We covered some of the questions she didn't fully understand. Topics were slope intercept, equations of lines, domain and range, graphing piecewise functions, and finding y and x intercepts. She need to practice more example problems and review problems to help her for the upcoming test."
"The student and I worked through a packet of problems involving lines. He was required to use the distance formula and be comfortable with standard, slope-intercept, and point-slope forms of lines. After demonstrating what all of these forms and formulas do and, more importantly, how they are related, we got to solving the problems. He had no problem with understanding any of them, and with some subtle hints was able to attain the correct answers. I also took some time to show him how he could have used multiple methods to solve these problems. He managed to make it through all of his problems. No concerns."
