Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During today's session, the student and I reviewed how to simplify radical expressions. I also introduced how to add, subtract, multiply and divide radical expressions. She did really well with simplifying radical expressions. She was able to easily grasp the concepts of the operations with radical expressions. I was extremely impressed by how quickly she mastered the concepts and was able to explain each step of the processes."
"I assisted the student with assignments covering the sum of the interior and exterior angles of regular polygons. We reviewed the formula (n-2)180 used to calculate the sum of the interior angles of polygons. The sum of the exterior angles is 360. The student demonstrated understanding and correctly completed the assigned problems."
"I covered independent and dependent variables. The student was struggling the most with figuring out which one was which. The student was truly engaged and wanted to learn the difference. I did include strategies this session. I did leave the student with extra practice. The student has brought her Language Arts and Math grades up. She has straight A's now. The student has started editing her schedule when needed!"
"I covered Math, Reading, and History concepts today. For Math - Adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing, scientific notation, and solving for unknown with unknown on both sides of equal sign. For Reading: History reading and comprehension. I continued helping the student understand his school work in Math and History. For Math, he was able to solve for an unknown when there are unknown variables on both sides of the equal sign. I emphasized moving the unknown to one side by doing the inverse operation, and then solve for the unknown. He also worked on adding and subtracting numbers in scientific notation. When numbers have a different exponent (power of 10), one number must be changed to match the exponent in order to add or subtract. For History, he read some pages in his textbook and had to complete questions. He did well in comprehension."
"I covered solving systems equations using the elimination and substitution method. I recommended writing down the steps involved so as not to get confused. The student responded very positively and tackled the problems with confidence. He has a good knowledge of math principles. I would suggest to practice some more problems because math is all about practice."
"I decided to spend the session reviewing the entire geometry chapter just to make sure the student is still remembering how to complete the problems. I gave him practice problems covering all the topics of the chapter. He remembered most of the material, but still struggles with net drawings and following directions on problems. We will continue to review these concepts next time."
