Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Making progress with Polynomials (Volumes, Perimeters, and Areas), Point-Slope Form (Standard Coordinate Plane Graphing, Formulas, and Calculations), and Functions (conversions from G(x) to F(x)). The student will complete Science Diagnostic #1 for tomorrow. Reading would be extra credit, as we will begin that tomorrow (or review Thursday)."
"The student and I dedicated today to working on the math section of the test. We are moving through the math competency areas as outlined by the SAT, and today we covered numbers and operations and algebra and functions and all the concepts on the test that are included therein. We worked through some practice problems for each competency area, and learned some new strategies and skills."
"We did problem sets from the prep book in English, reading, and science and 1 problem in math. The students seemed to do worst in reading and best in science. I recommended that they complete a full-length practice test, timing each section individually. This will give them a lot of extra practice and provide learning opportunities."
"The student had chosen a list of topics for us to go over together. These included slope, scientific notation, and solving problems that require the use of a chart. During the second hour, I chose random problems from each section, and had him complete them quickly. If he got them correct, we would move into the next section. We only did two to three problems per section. He is a very hard worker and has been a pleasure to work with."
"The student had not done as well on the math. There were a lot of problems that were based on linear relationships. She learned to work through them, but could not always apply the rules. We will continue to work on this concept. Her homework is to correct her test."
"The student has covered equations before but does not have the best grasp on the subject. She will need a bit more practice before moving on to higher math like graphing and point-slope equations. We covered adding and subtracting on both sides of the equation. We also covered multiplication and division, but did not get to reciprocals. With a bit more review, she will be able to move on to higher forms of math."
