Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Focused on problems involving area and volume of squares, rectangles, cubes, rectangular prisms, and other polygons. The student is able to do this fairly well."
"Today, I met the student for the first time. We worked on organizing his school binders and then worked on pre-algebra homework (probability)."
"We worked through lesson 5.02 on variability. This lesson covered box-and-whisker plots, variance, and standard deviation. We started with a quick review of mean, median, and mode, and then walked through the new material. The student remembered box-and-whisker plots from previous years and explained the five number system to me (i.e., minimum, Q1, Q2, Q3, maximum). I intend to look for an online resource that may simplify the concepts and put them into terms that resonate with him. He took the quiz for 5.02 and worked through the questions on his own. He got a 5 out of 5. We then went through lesson 5.03 on sampling. This introduced five methods of sampling, including simple randomized sampling, systematic sampling, and convenience sampling. It also covered the concept of biased and unbiased sampling. After we talked through several examples, I do think he understands. We ran out of time, so he is supposed to take the 5.03 quiz on his own before we meet next Monday."
"Today we worked with solving quadratic equations. The methods that were covered were using the quadratic formula and factoring."
"We went over congruent triangles and how to know if they are, in fact, congruent. The student grasped the concept really well. I am looking forward to his next test grade and continuing to work with him, as he is getting better each day."
"Yesterday, we went over a few homework problems that the student was struggling with, involving solving for variables when there are multiple variables in the equation and word problems where you have to use the equation d=r*t. I taught her how to use ratios for these problems and she seemed to understand the methodology a bit better."
