Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I started this afternoon's session with a quick lesson on matrices, one of the few topics on the ISEE Upper Level math exam that he is unfamiliar with. We covered the rules for adding, subtracting, multiplying by a factor, and negating matrices, then went back over the ISEE questions that we had encountered that involved matrices. He was able to correctly answer these questions after our lesson. After that, we reviewed calculating percentages and percent changes, a topic that he feels he has some difficulty with. We then continued our ISEE work by starting another math section of a practice exam. This section was more difficult than some of the practice tests we've done recently, but he did pretty well, and is definitely gaining in confidence on these exam questions."
"The student and I started to review for her upcoming final exam on Monday. She has a comprehensive review sheet, so we started to review and complete topics in preparation for final, including slopes, equation of lines, proofs, factoring, congruent triangles, finding missing angles, and conditional statements."
"The student and I studied for her math test on vectors and proofs. She was a little confused on how to find a vector but understood it by the end of the lesson. She also thought she didn't know how to do proofs, but when we were going over them, she knew how to do them. We went over all the practice problems, and she understood how to do them, so hopefully she does well on her test tomorrow."
"The student and I studied for her test and reviewed her project. Her project was nearly completed. For the test, we reviewed factoring and graphical analysis, her most challenging point."
"The student and I studied for his upcoming quiz on geometric means and proportions. We did a lot of practice setting up equations and cross-multiplying in order to solve proportion problems, and he did a great job of completing the problems correctly and efficiently."
"The student and I studied for his upcoming test on Thursday. He had some minor issues with transformations, but this was easily overcome. We also reviewed a little bit for his English test."
