Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student has a test on Monday on Chapter 6 of the book, and we went over the homework problems he's completed so far from 6.1-6.4. He completed most of the problems easily. We spent the most time going over properties of parallelograms and will continue this in our next session. Before our next meeting, he will finish the remaining homework problems for Chapter 6 (6.5-6.6) as well as make organized notes for all of Chapter 6 (6.1-6.6)."
"The student and I worked with angles that were inscribed in, and through the radius of a circle and those that were outside of the circle but made with tangent and secant lines. Initially, she had a hard time understanding what was going on, but we made a chart of what to do when working with each angle and then she was more confident."
"Today, we talked about the law of sines and the law of cosines. She has just started geometry and she is doing well with it being a new subject. We also talked a bit about multigene traits and alleles for biology, after which she more clearly understood these concepts."
"Our time was focused in on Trigonometry and working with sin, cos, and tan. The student had a good handle on the concepts, so we worked to further develop her understanding by working backwards to check the answers."
"The student and I studied problems in Sections 10.6 and 10.7, then reviewed all of Chapter 10 for his test next week. We will meet next Saturday at 11 AM or earlier."
"Chapter 8 sections 8.4 - 8.7 specifically. We covered quadrilaterals: special conditions, rhombus, trapezoids, parallelograms, etc. The student had the ideas down and needed to memorize all the definitions. He was attentive and made good progress. We worked on focusing on the specifics of the problems and giving him a better process to analyze each problem. He was tasked to make flashcards, do practice problems out of each section in the book, and ask as many questions as he comes across. He is doing a great job, he just needs to keep working on his study tactics as they will come in handy more and more as he progresses."
