Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I reviewed her Group Assignment 1 and began her Group Assignment 2. She had completed her Group Assignment 1 previously, but her professor would like her to resubmit it and use a scale variable for the t-test. We selected a scale variable and worked through Group Assignment 1, and then she began Group Assignment 2, which required students to run a Mann-Whitney test. She is going to review her professor's notes and continue work on the assignment, and we are going to have another session in the next few days."
"The student and I reviewed her study guide for this week's algebra test. She is doing much better at making fewer mistakes, but it is still something that we are working on together. She says the hardest part about taking a test is feeling rushed for time, which is why she doesn't always remember to check her work or why she makes small errors. The best way to help her feel more confident and less rushed on tests is to continue practicing the problems. She struggled a little with using substitution for systems of equations, so we practiced several problem sets using substitution. We also did work with negative exponents and simplifying complex expressions. Our next tutoring session is scheduled for next week."
"The student and I reviewed her times tables for 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10. I gave her one-minute tests on times table facts. We played Hangman at the end of the session so we could review words."
"The student and I reviewed her writing assignment. She did very well constructing a persuasive argument, only losing points on some grammatical oversights and some missing details. Her vocabulary homework continues to be strong. We spent the rest of the session getting used to the new calculator, and using it to create scatter plots and generating lines of regression."
"The student and I reviewed her written answer to her last problem. We did some editing, and then she submitted it to her teacher for review. Then, we started reading her material in the text and discussed the problems in the book. Some of the concepts were challenging for her; however, after some instruction from me or further instruction from the book, she was back on track and following the logic and methods again. We plan to continue reading and doing more problems tomorrow when we again meet."
"The student and I reviewed his assignments on percent of change and calculating percents. He is performing well. We then reviewed for his upcoming equations retake assessment. He is doing significantly better than he did a few weeks ago. He struggles with setting up word problems, but is improving with the usage of strategies such as tables. We will continue to work on this next session."
