Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student reported an improved grade for his recent quiz (91%). We quickly worked through the "Mental Math" problems for ratios using both decimal and fractional estimates, mostly in his head. He seems able to hold numbers and multiply them in his head rather well. We finished going through his assignment early, so we started looking at the Chapter 6 material on using percentages."
"The student reviewed for his test tomorrow by completing an online review assignment that his teacher gave him. He was really confident in how to approach the problems. He had a good handle on the material."
"The student reviewed polynomial multiplication in today's session. He is a very self-motivated student and very eager to learn. He scored 100 percent on the assessment questions at the end of the lesson. He needs to continue to practice working with exponential expressions and the distributive property."
"The student said her chemistry test went really well. She has a math test tomorrow. We printed out the review problems and I had her work some of each kind. She did really well with the first blocks of problems--she remembered everything we went over previously. She needed the most help on graphing rational functions, but I broke it down into the steps she'll do for each problem."
"The student scored a ~90 on her most recent pre-test! In preparation for the actual test on exponential growth and decay, compound and continuous interest, etc., we worked through her study guide in order to further reinforce these concepts. She demonstrated a mastery of exponential growth and decay, etc., but she should practice the explicit and recursive series portion more on her own before her test. She also has an upcoming midterm review that we will be preparing for during our next sessions. I asked her to get a study guide for this midterm, but we can work from previous notes and session logs if no study guide is given. I feel confident that she will do well on her midterm as long as we can strengthen any concepts she may have been missing or partially missing from before we started working together."
"The student seemed to be struggling a bit, so we went over the basics to build a good foundation for the things he was working on. We did many examples step by step to break down things that were too complicated. Today, we worked on solving equations using the distributive property."
