"Our main focus was solving problems involving chords, secants, and tangents in circles. We practiced about 30 problems using three circle rules: intersecting chords rule, secant-secant rule, and secant-tangent rule. Several of the problems involved multiple formulas to finally arrive at the final answer. I noticed that the student was able to solve many of the problems without looking at the formulas. Next, we dove into the next session dealing with the equation of a circle, (x-h)^2 + (y-k)^2 = r^2. This section was new for the student; he will start it with his class in school over the next few days. We were successful in navigating through the important notes about the formula, reviewing examples, and completing his next assignment using this formula. We completed about 20 of these problems. Many of the problems involved graphing the circle on a coordinate plane. Again, the student was up for even the most challenging questions, so it is fun working with him. Towards the end of the session, we spoke about some of his other classes. His father has made clear that together, we will stay on top of all of the student's grades in all his classes, so the student showed me his online gradebook. It is clear that he enjoys and excels in English. There is room for improvement in geometry, French, history, and chemistry. The student also enjoys his music technology class, but more grades are needed to accurately assess his progress. In our next tutoring session, we will be sure to review the big ideas we covered in our first two sessions and continue moving forward with all his subject areas, especially geometry, so that he can feel more and more confident in his classes. We will focus on helping the student improve his study skills for all his classes."
