Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over the quiz that the student took on Tuesday and reviewed her homework assignment. She seems to be understanding the concepts more. She did need help with processing word problems, so we went over them in detail."
"We went over topics such as distributive property, order of operations, isolating variables, solving equations via substitution, determining whether a relation is a function, applying the vertical line test, and creating linear equations from sentences. My student was very receptive to my suggestions of slowing down and organizing his material to assist with his accuracy. We were very productive, and we worked hard the entire session: he was able to complete his previous assignments as well as his current and even future assignments."
"We went through exponential to log transformations, some probability theory, and independence. We also continued to cover expanding polynomials. The student seems to want to take short cuts and not write down his work. I try to make him write down his steps, but he prefers to just guess rather than trying to solve the problems."
"We went through parallel lines and transversals with her homework problems. She had some initial confusion, but after practice, she was getting the hang of identifying congruent and supplementary angles. She will need more practice with writing proofs and identifying the steps, but the homework in her class will be a gentle guidance in that regard. She can email me if she has any questions throughout the week."
"We went through solving equations with absolute values and inequalities, including abs(2c-4)=8 and abs(3-9x)<=24. We talked about how you solve absolute value problems by setting the part inside the absolute value equal to both the positive and negative value on the right. We worked a total of ten problems, and she seemed to grasp the concept quickly and was able to incorporate things we learned from our previous session into this assignment. I was very impressed with how well she took to this material."
"We went through the student's notes for his algebra class and completed his homework. His homework involved getting the least common denominator for rational expressions and solving for x. He did well, and I explained any content that he was unsure of. I also spoke to the student and his mom, about the PSAT, SAT, and ACT since she had questions regarding the upcoming PSAT. She would like to hopefully prepare him for these upcoming tests"
