Recent Summit Tutoring Session Notes

Tutoring review by Anne in Summit, NJ
Today, we began by working with linear inequalities and the graphs of the solutions. We did some test corrections. We then worked on additional practice problems from his workbook and some from a review book. We also practiced solving systems of linear equations and solving word problems by setting up systems of linear equations. The student has very good arithmetic skills and understand the concepts. We discussed that he should try to work from left to right and be neat and ask himself if his answers make sense.

Tutoring review by Ryan in Summit, NJ
We went over problems involving forces due to electric fields. The student seems to have a very good grasp of the new material regarding E&M. We really just had to go back to some 2D kinematic equations from intro Newtonian mechanics in physics 1 courses. She quickly caught on to those concepts as well so she seems to be doing very well overall.

Tutoring review by Dan in Summit, NJ
The student and I went over a couple of homework assignments that are leading to an upcoming test. The material we covered included limited reactants, percent yield, and mole conversions. She had a good grasp of the information going into our session, we simply ironed out some kinks and made her nothing short of confident when approaching the problems.

Tutoring review by Laura in Summit, NJ
We continued to work on least common multiple, greatest common factor, and converting percents less than 1% and greater than 100% to decimals and fractions. I created some practice problems for the student to work on for each topic. She did really well on them. We also worked on word problems that involved finding percents of whole numbers.

Tutoring review by Kenneth in Summit, NJ
In today's session, I provided a word problem that focused on addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, area, and money skills in a practical situation. The student did well. He had to figure out how many board feet were needed for a door frame and three windows. He also had to figure out how much paint was needed for a wall, subtracting areas of two windows and a door, and then price everything out with prices and describe what kind of change was given back. He did very well with these concepts.
