Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student got a B on her last exam, which brought up her grade. For this session, she's learning about parallel lines and theorems involving angles formed by a transversal line. She can recognize the congruent and supplementary angles, but needs more practice identity the specific theorems that justify her conclusions. We'll work on this in our next session."
"The student had in-depth homework yesterday, on basic properties of linear functions and applied scenarios thereof. Because of the tedious nature of the problems, that they were multifaceted, I asked him to graph the equations of the functions, piecewise or otherwise, that he'd already found, and solved for certain properties and interpreted certain behaviors of the functions in the context of the applied scenarios. His homework took up our entire session. "
"The student had problems with simple math today, but she really pulled it together quickly. We did numerous practice problems and then began with the flashcard practice."
"The student has a test on Tuesday so we met today. His test will cover median, mode, mean, and range of data. In a packet, which he had to do, he made 2 box and whisker plots, 2 stem and leaf plots, and a histogram. He also figured out the 3 M's, the range, and answered questions based on the data regarding Oscar winners, actors and actresses, according to age. He did very well with this assignment and should do well on the test. He did mention to me that he did well on the combination/permutation/probability test!"
"The student has an upcoming test over graphing, translations, and transformation. She has a good understanding of the information, but she second guesses herself often. She is still having problems with basic math, but she understands the more complicated problems. She should be taking the SAT very soon. We will begin preparation for that soon."
"The student has had serious improvement in his math abilities. He can now do algebra operations on his own and is able to track through his work when a mistake is seen. When I first started working with him, he had a hard time keeping the terms in the equations legible as part of his dyslexia. At this point I would say that his Algebra is comparable to any other math student of his age. We will be working on having him attempt more material on his own between sessions so that he can move more quickly and eventually learn how to study without needing assistance."
