Alex's Tutoring Mathematical Diagnostic Test
Song: About To Begin
Artist: Robin Trower
At Alex's high school...
his math teacher had started a tutoring program.
He had asked a total of four students to become tutors
to any of the students at the high school.
Alex was asked...
and he agreed enthusiastically.
The tutors will be volunteering their time each week...
and they will be earning the requisite number of volunteer hours
for inclusion on their future University applications...
and towards their Honor Society requirements.
As Alex wishes to one day become a University Math Professor...
this teaching opportunity will be perfect for him.
Alex loves teaching.
Alex's math teacher...Mr. Deveny.
The tutors may use the computer and projector screen to explain
problems, principles, or concepts to those in need
using the various demonstrative or calculative programs
(although Alex is quite satisfied to just use a pen and paper).
Alex had designed his own basic mathematics diagnostic test...
so he could more accurately ascertain the level of each student...
and so, could more tailor fit his tutoring to the problem areas
of each particular student.
Alex realizes that if a fundamental concept...
or certain principles are not understood...
many further problems will arise.
Alex wishes to ensure each student has a rock solid
mathematical foundation first.
Alex will be helping the high school or middle school students with any math concern
to increase their progress, or to help with their exams or SATs.
This is Alex's Mathematical Diagnostic Test:
If Alex may not earn enough volunteer hours only through this
high school tutoring program...
a mathematical tutoring school (Juku) opened up nearby.
Alex is thinking about becoming an instructor there...
but only if there are not enough students to teach
at his high school for him to earn enough hours.
