Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Continued going over practice worksheets to get the student ready to go back to school. Decimal long division, decimal multiplication, multiplication of mixed numbers, and other topics."
"We worked on matrix operations (+,-,/, and x). We also performed operations with identities (augmentation, identity). He had some homework problems from Module 4 and a text to prepare for. He scored a 100% on his first homework, covering operations with matrices. The second assignment was better. Even though he made several errors, the system allowed him to go back and correct his work, and he was really good at finding his mistakes. So, he got a perfect score on that as well. I showed him some strategies using the graphing calculator with matrices so that he won't get too bogged down with the arithmetic. He caught on quickly to that, and prefers to use these strategies with problem solving. He struggles with processing "what" the question is asking him initially, but after solving multiple problems he began to see patterns in the question types. He has extra practice problems and videos in the module to build upon."
"Met this student for the first session. Covered systems of equations in algebra. Set schedule for biology and algebra sessions next week."
"The student and I reviewed for her test tomorrow. We went through a plethora of sin/cos/tan problems in which we had to graph functions or derive functions from graphs. We also did some rotational problems, and it seemed like she was getting the hang of it by the end."
"I helped the student review for a test. We began by going over solving and plotting exponential and logarithmic functions and expressions. The student is definitely making a lot more progress this semester and staying ahead."
"The student finished her math packet and then we did some work on an online source. We finished the packet without too much difficulty. I let her practice typing for 15 minutes. We spent the last part of our session working on an online sources problems. I had her work through some fraction division problems. She learned how to do the problems quickly and got pretty much all of them right."
