Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered a lot of math concepts. We used a website to go over a lot of weak areas that were not covered by her teacher. She is very focused and I have no doubt that she will improve and excel."
"We covered completing the square for homework. The student did not understand the concepts initially, but she seemed confident towards the end of the session. We also covered imaginary numbers and reviewed her previous test. She has a quiz on Wednesday."
"Today we went over all of the material covered since our last meeting. We did some review and then started on areas of polygons. We worked through problems using triangles, quadrilaterals, parallelograms, and trapezoids."
"We worked on the student's math worksheet with fractions and mixed numbers. We also worked on her extra credit sheet using decimals in different multi-step word problems. She did really well and understood the concepts on each of the sheets."
"We reviewed the same subjects as yesterday, and worked out a review plan for the student's upcoming final exams. I assigned 23 pages for him to do in his math book as review, and asked him to write down any questions he has about the material."
"We discussed what the students were studying this week: multiplying decimals. Worked on a 5th grade math assessment to find where the students? skills are. The next session will focus on decimals, percentages, and fractions."
"I helped the student with the AP practice test to prepare for her chapter 6 test tomorrow. There were several very tricky questions with fairly common mistake traps. I gave her some extra practice problems to work on later this evening."
"We went over linear inequalities and x and y intercepts. He definitely improved over time and is preparing for his test tomorrow. He was struggling with what happens to the sign when you divide by a negative number, but we worked that out."
"The student and I met and worked on her review. Her worksheet included word problems and exercises with quadratics. We maximized the area of a fenced in area using the vertex method. Good session."
"We reviewed and completed a worksheet of Chapter 5 using logarithm properties to solve for functions along with some doubling time and half-life problems. We summarized the key concepts and did other practice problems from the book."
"Today the student and I worked on his math. He is working on ratios and the relation to fractions and percentages. He has an assignment in history due Friday. I will work on it with him Thursday."
"We worked on factoring higher order polynomials using synthetic division. After working several problems, I gave the student a preview of the Rational Zeros Theorem which will probably be covered in her class in the next few days."
