Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We completed her homework assignment for solving absolute value functions by graphing. We also went over the last quiz that she took, which had mistakes. The student does not seem to have any problems with the material, but it applies a wider range of concepts than most of the problems that she has worked with. She is still not completely confident when dealing with operations with negative values. More practice will help cement her understanding of absolute values."
"We completed linear algebra and line transformations. The student perfected his graph and standardized his slope. Afterwards, we practiced using numerous questions from his worksheet involving radical numbers."
"We completed the student's review for his final. Overall, he did a good job! He knew how to do most of the problems. We went over the areas to watch out for, and he should be ready for the exam!"
"We completed the student's twenty-ninth tutoring session aimed at improving her algebra skills and providing her with homework support. During the session, I continued helping her prepare for an upcoming algebra exam. She indicated that the test would require her to solve complex inequalities, complete proportions, and convert values with repeating decimals into fractions. She also provided me with a previous exam over the same material to utilize as a study guide. As a result, we spent the entirety of the session working through the test items. She was initially required to answer each item independently. If she provided an inaccurate response, I pointed out her error(s) and asked her questions aimed at guiding her toward the correct solution. As homework, she was asked to review the material that will be covered on the exam at least one more time prior to taking the test."
"We continued a review for the student's final exam. We covered ~ 8 more problems. We went over functions, mx+b, slopes, graph translation, etc."
"We continued looking over the take-home test covering interior and exterior angles of polygons. We created a table showing the patterns between polygons with increasing number of sides. We came to the conclusion that the sum of the interior angles increases by 180 degrees for each new side that is added to a polygon. He is making steady progress on the test; however, there are some challenging problems that have taken him a longer time to fully grasp. We will continue to work on this next session."
