Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we focused on sections 2.4 and 2.6 mostly covered writing equations of lines and graphing linear inequalities in two variables. There were about 30 or more homework problems, including many graphs. The student seemed very engaged and willing to work out every single problem. He was even very attentive when I was explaining how to solve word problems involving inequalities. He did very well overall, and there was even an "aha" moment when solving a problem that I had to stop and tell him proudly "that's how I want you to think." I think he felt very good about it as he smiled big and was proud of himself."
"We covered properties of fractions, including addition of fractions and multiplication of fractions. We covered numerous complex examples. The student seemed to have a grasp on the material, but he certainly needs a bit of practice to become more acquainted."
"We kept working with integration by parts and partial fractions this time moving into more advanced problems to try and cement the principles."
"In this session, the student and I covered solving equations and graphing them. She also showed me previous work that she got wrong and I showed her how to correct them."
"We covered mostly concept about congruent triangles. The student is solid with the concept and accurate when doing problems. She worked through her homework and a worksheet from school. I have suggested she go through the practice set in the textbook if she has time."
"We began with a review of basic two-step equations. Since the student remembered how to do that with ease, we upped the ante by throwing in problems involving the distributive property and variables on both sides of the equation. We did a mini-lesson on the distributive property and subtracting quantities. To wrap up the lesson, she solved a common algebra problem: describing three different groups in terms of one unknown. After solving, she wrote her own related problem and did an extended response describing how to solve these types of problems."
