Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I went over step-by-step directions on long division. She then completed her homework by working through the problems step-by-step, and writing them out as she went through them."
"The student and I went over the chapter 6 summary. We focused on adding, subtracting, dividing, and multiplying rational polynomial equations. I assigned her a couple of assignments to go over."
"The student and I went over the content she is expected to know to this point and quickly reviewed a few graded papers. Her mistakes do not represent any serious deficiencies. Most of the markdowns were due to simple mistakes. It is possible that without the formal background that is presented to college-level students, the material and techniques seem unmotivated and obscure. She will continue to review the material as her exam approaches."
"The student and I went over the different ways to factor different polynomials. She was a little nervous. She seems to understand the steps needed to answer the problem, but when she does it herself, she ends up getting lost and doesn't get the right answer. We did many problems to help her become comfortable with the process before moving on to the next process. We will continue to concentrate on one type of problem and get that down before moving on to another, new process. She has a great attitude and wants to learn and do this correctly on her own. I think tutoring will be good for her. Soon, she will build confidence and understanding."
"The student and I went over the homework from last time first, and I noted that she struggled with a probability problem, so we reviewed that topic. Then, we focused on what she was covering in school at the time, mainly linear functions and using points to find out the equation of the function. I assigned her various problems for the next time as homework."
"The student and I went over the homework I assigned to him. He had problems with solving, so I went over the problems and reviewed indices with him. When we meet on Saturday, I will start an introduction to trigonometry."
