Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today the student and I completed several different assessments in module 7. He briefly read through each section on his own, but he is naturally good at trigonometry. Without assistance I proctored 4 different section assessments for him, and he got 100% on all of them. We should be done with module 7 very soon."
"Today, we focused on circles and their associated components/structures (arcs, chords, segments, tangents, secants, and angles). We reviewed the student's lecture slides and many rules related to these components. We did a few review problems as well. We will continue on these tomorrow."
"During the session we covered geometric proofs using a question packet provided by the student's teacher. She was having issues with the different definitions and geometric properties related to the questions from the packet. Overall, I sensed that she was confused over how to apply geometric properties and theorems to carry out a proof. I suggested that rather than rush through each question, she should try to understand the rationale behind the different properties and theorems. For our next session, I will bring additional practice problems, which she can work on to get a better grasp over the material."
"The student and I revisited the concepts of chords, tangents and secants with their corresponding rules. We began looking at solving different algebraic equations that arise within those rules. We discussed the topic of arc length, minor, major arcs and the semi-circle."
"The student and I worked on a test she had taken to review concepts on problems that she did not get correct. Problems included Pythagorean triples and special right triangles. The student needs to drill more on algebra and multiplication."
"In this session, the student and I worked with the measures of arcs and interior angles of a circle. He had a good understanding of how to figure out various arc measures, but he had some issues when it came to using the properties of shapes inside the circles to find those arc measures."
