Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we reviewed most of the math concepts: distributive properties, point slope equations, and line equations. His verbal feedback proved a solid understanding of the concepts. I left him with a line geometry and inequalities test to try out before Tuesday."
"Today we reviewed quadratic equations, factoring, and solving for zeros and origin points. We also reviewed the star method for factoring quadratic equations. The student seemed to have a little difficulty at first but got better towards the end of the session."
"Today we reviewed the homework problems that were assigned. These topics included finding the greatest common factor with variables and exponents. In addition, she completed several online mastery challenges and assignments."
"Today we reviewed weighted averages as well as fundamentals of solving equations. The student continues to pick up new material easily, but has a bit of a weakness when it comes to the fundamentals used to solve problems. We are working toward establishing good habits, while eliminating bad ones: in particular, making copious notes and paying attention to how things are written down."
"Today we spent most of the time on systems of equations. There are two methods for solving systems of equations: substitution and elimination. We also practiced several word problems involving applications of systems of equations: interest incomes, rates of motion, rates of growth, etc."
"Today we spent the majority of the session preparing for a quiz on proofs. The student's teacher handed out a quiz review packet which covered all the concepts learned regarding proofs. He has a pretty good understanding at this point and just has some trouble with memorizing all the details. They have been coming with practice, however. He says he's confident going into the quiz for tomorrow."
