Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I started with Geometry and worked from there. She finished her homework quickly, and we discussed anything she might struggle with in Geometry. She has a very solid foundation and understanding of problem-solving. With a deep breath before she attempts each problem, she is confident she can slow her thought process down and solve each problem thoroughly and effectively."
"This was my first session with the student. She has a test on Friday on translations, dilations, rotations, and reflections. She had a review sheet from her teacher that we did together. I also brought some additional material for her to do as practice. She understands the concepts she was able to do all the practice problems. I told her it might help her to number the points and label the axes so she doesn't get them confused on test day. Other than those simple mistakes she has a good handle on the material."
"Today we went over more problems and rules associated with similar polygons. The student understood the material really well and didn't seem to have a problem grasping the concepts. She is having a test this upcoming week and so we will be reviewing for it on Thursday."
"Today we continued studying for the student's final. We finished the module 8 multiple choice and then completed the module 8 written exam. It was quite an easy section, and he had very little trouble. We then moved on to module 9, which was the most recent module we covered before studying for the final. There is a lot more information in module 9 than there is in the other modules, so this one took longer to study. His cheat sheet covered 2 pages. He had particular trouble with angles of chords, but I wrote several practice problems to help shore up the topic. We also completed half of the practice final and I assigned him the rest."
"The student and I worked on several problems in preparation for his upcoming final. The problems mostly dealt with similar triangles."
"During this session, properties and theorems of circles were reviewed by completing various online homework and quizzes."
