Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student completed her Italian homework. We used present tense of many verbs to form logical sentences. In Algebra 2, we went over direct variation again. I corrected the homework she had already completed, and we went over some of the questions she wasn't sure of. These questions involved graphing a direct variation. I explained that direct variations are lines with y intercept of 0 (through the origin). This seemed to really clear things up for her. Lastly, the student and I went over the three theorems for parallel and perpendicular lines. We created a review sheet, and then completed the homework using the review sheet. I have asked her to create a neater/revised version of the review sheet just to solidify these concepts for her."
"The student completed his homework that is due tomorrow. The student also practiced on math problems that related to solving two step equations. The student struggled with using the distributive method for most of the math problems. Once the student understood the distributive method, the student was able to complete his homework without any mistakes. The student needs to work math problems that involve negative numbers."
"The student completed his math homework on multiplying and dividing fractions. He did very well on the assignment, and the word problems gave him very little trouble. He also worked on his English project. He needs to get a bit better at forming logical arguments and supplying reason but overall did very well. He needs to type up his project on his own tonight to hand it in tomorrow."
"The student completed his social studies packet. We then did a review of Spanish vocabulary and did a challenge math problem. The student is to the point that he has a good rhythm and schedule in terms of getting his homework done. He is using his planner, and when we review he remembers everything, and always has good insight."
"The student completed homework pg.91 #4-20 even in textbook. We reviewed extra practice problems given from Monday's session. The student needs more practice identifying and/or problems, all real solutions and no solutions problems, and keeping track when dividing by a negative with inequalities. He is getting better setting up word problems."
"The student completed two homework assignments (one of which was weekend homework that she did not understand). Her homework assignments focused on translations and transformations of graphs and functions. By having her concentrate on the more expanded base function of y=a(x-h)^2+k rather than y=x^2, she was able to better understand translations. Focusing on this will also help her later this year when she begins working on conic sections. She continues to be a fast learner, but I do think she could use some more practice in this area."
