Tutoring review by John in Damascus, OR
Today, the student and I worked on "Stone Soup" handouts regarding proportions. I reviewed one of his essays and we discussed math problems and some vocabulary and analogies from the college entrance exam/independent school entrance exam review book. I asked him to bring his homework to do in future sessions.

The student needed some guidance over Algebra 2 in long division of polynomials, but he was able to complete problems on his own after a few explanation problems.

Tutoring review by Steve in Damascus, OR
We worked on the student's geometry homework, solving for variables by substituting with other variables to maintain consistency and solve for one variable at a time. We also reviewed some pages from Lord of the Flies that the student wanted further explanation on.

Tutoring review by Angela in Damascus, OR
The student had a Math homework worksheet to complete involving word problems. We reviewed it together, and I showed him techniques he can use in the future. He has quite a bit of initiative and doesn't wait for my prompting to work, which is wonderful. Next we worked on adding equations. We reviewed terms like "went away" in word problems and reviewed when to add and when to subtract. We also did some verbal addition and subtraction and used manipulatives to get the answer. I taught him that when adding, it's best to start with the larger number then add the smaller number to it. I also showed him the technique where you put the larger number "on your head" then count up from there to add.

Recapped material from Tuesday. Discussed geometric proofs. Reviewed definitions given by the student's geometry instructor (which he seemed to know fairly well).

Tutoring review by Scott in Damascus, OR
Today we started by reviewing the order of operations. We spent much of the session practicing addition and subtraction of decimals. I drew analogies to addition and subtraction with whole numbers, which I think helped (ex. 1.00-0.75 is like 100 - 75). He seemed to have a decent grasp on the concept after a while. We also went over how zeroes after the decimal point do not affect the number ( ex. 0.8=0.80=0.800). We ended the session with some review of previous material.
