Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I went through the practice test he took last week and looked at the problems that he skipped or missed. We more thoroughly looked at ratio problems and problems that involve symbols that represent functions."
"The student and I discussed the topics of his Basic Skills test, which he will also be taking in the fall. We began reviewing math concepts from 4th grade, including place value, geometry (types of triangles and their angles), and rounding decimals. He reported that he is most comfortable with math, and feels that he needs the most practice with reading comprehension and vocabulary. We plan to meet again next Saturday. He was very polite and stayed focused throughout the session."
"Review of balancing equations (full molecular, full ionic, and net ionic equations), precipitate reactions. We went over polarity of water molecules and aqueous solutions and started introducing acid-base reactions."
"She is making so much progress! We went over the reading section that she did since our last session. We discussed the importance of paying attention to detail (as there were a few questions she missed simply because she did not check back to the passage). We then did some further math review; she is doing excellent!"
"The student and I worked through beginning inequalities and absolute value problems. For each problem, we then worked on translating the solutions first to a number line and then to interval notation. We also did a few practice problems translating a graph to interval notation of domain and range. He has been showing steady improvement between sessions, especially with memorizing formulas and knowing which to apply."
"In this session the student and I began reviewing a personal finance packet, covering the topics of saving, compound interest, budgeting, and credit cards. The student's performance on this packet will determine whether or not he has to take his course final. The packet was largely research-based, which we did together. The material on personal finance was not covered in any of his course notes. One area of struggle for the student was calculating the compound interest."
