Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

Tutoring review by Margot in Mound, MN
Our session went really well today. Her class is working on solving systems of equations by elimination. We worked through some basic problems and then some more difficult ones, where she had to multiply entire equations by a given number in order to make it easy to subtract variables between equations. We also talked about some of the basics of multiplying and dividing positives and negatives. By the end of the session, she was able to work out most of the steps in the problems by herself, and she was also beginning to see patterns in multiplying and dividing positive and negative numbers.

Tutoring review by Samuel in Mound, MN
The student and I reviewed some of his material from earlier in the semester as he prepares for his final exam. He just had a quiz on his current material, so he preferred to focus on old topics. We worked on simplifying radicals, converting between radical form and rational exponent form, solving equations that contain radicals, and factoring. He felt very weak in this area, so we spent the entire session doing practice problems. He was pretty lost and lacked confidence at first but after seeing a few problems, he caught on and became more sure of himself. He had no problem simplifying variables with radicals but numbers were a big issue for him. I showed him how to use prime factorization to determine which numbers he can take out and which had to be left under the radical. After a few sample problems, he definitely improved but we agreed that we should revisit this topic in future sessions. Our biggest win for the night was his introduction to the "factor box." The factor box is something I learned early in school and used throughout my whole math career to factor quadratic equations. He told me he had no idea how to factor something as simple as x^2-4x-5=0 and he absolutely loved the factor box. I gave him several sample problems and he did very well. It was his "ah ha" moment and it was awesome to see him being so enthusiastic about it. All in all, he definitely made some progress and the hope is that he can carry what he learned into his final exam.

Tutoring review by Greg in Mound, MN
The student completed the related rates problems that were assigned. He was able to do them to about 90% accuracy. We needed to review some basic tenets of related rates problems, and where he was getting in trouble was not writing down the implicit differentiation step. We then reviewed the inverse trig derivatives, which he completed the problems to about 85% accuracy. He needed some review on the multiple chain rule steps in a problem. He then shared he did not understand the differentials problems, so we worked through 1 of them together and he was able to complete three others with little redirection from me. I asked him to complete the remaining related rates and differentials problems from Tuesday's session, as well as sent him a link to begin looking over local extrema and the first and second derivative tests. I asked him to complete all the "drill" exercises, which he may or may not be able to do to 100% accuracy, which is ok, as this is the next part of the curriculum. He should spend about 60-90 minutes per day with the material.

Tutoring review by Billy in Mound, MN
The student seems to have made improvements in the math section of the SAT. Problem solving seems to come more intuitively, and she's quick to realize where she may have made mistakes. We are prepared to go over a few more full-length SAT practice tests before her exam next week, continuing to focus on math.

Tutoring review by Christine in Mound, MN
I did a preview of the book we were going to read for the student's homework and I wrote down several words on a white board that I thought he'd have trouble pronouncing. I asked him to draw a picture next to each word to help him remember how to pronounce it when it came up in our reading. This worked very well, as he loves to draw. I was impressed by the level of thought that went into some of his pictures. For instance, for the word "present" he didn't just draw a square, he drew a 3-dimensional cube with a ribbon and a bow. When he had to draw something for the word "froze" he made a stick figure inside a block of ice. Very clever - we both laughed about that one. We read 10 pages of Horrible Harry and the Drop of Doom for his homework. I started a new list of words for the next few pages and he drew more pictures for each word. What I would like to see him do (which I remind him of several times) is to look at the words in the book when it's my turn to read so he can recognize words when they are repeated during his reading time. A telling observation was when he asked if I would read the interesting pages so he could enjoy the story because when he reads he can't follow the story as well. My take on it is he would truly benefit from someone reading to him each night because he does get lost in the story - this will increase his vocabulary and get him more interested in books. Going forward, I will concentrate on more spelling techniques because he consistently tries to spell words and leaves out the vowels or uses "i" for all of the "e" sounds. Once he feels more comfortable with spelling, the words on the page will not be as intimidating because he will be able to sound them out more effectively. As for his attitude, it was definitely better than last week. I focused solely on reading and writing. At the end of the session he voluntarily thanked me when we were alone in the study room and then said it again when prompted by his mother.
