Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I covered problems for his upcoming math assessment and I feel confident in his ability to accurately complete the problems. He has a clear, step-by-step process for completing the problems that he will encounter. We spent the final minutes completing a vocabulary activity for his chemistry class. The student recently took a benchmark assessment for his math (46) and chemistry courses (91)."
"The student and I reviewed a past physics quiz in which he had a little trouble with a problem where he had to equate both sides to the same thing. We also went through some geometry that he had done in class and completed some additional questions."
"Reviewed conditional statements with hypothesis and conclusion detection. Worked on making converse, inverse, and contrapositive statements and looking for counter examples when necessary. Discussed principles of Biconditional statements. Began to examine the properties of deductive reasoning with the laws of detachment and syllogism. Briefly covered differences between inductive and deductive reasoning."
"We went over the student's review guide for an upcoming test. The student did not seem to have much trouble, most was in the algebra and not the understanding of concepts. There was no extra practice and I left with no concerns from this session."
"First session with this student went well. We worked through his homework worksheet, which covered proving congruence of triangles. He understands the basics. I see great potential here, and I will hopefully see some scores to note progress soon. I am working on getting a book to use to assign extra practice."
"The student and I worked on the fundamentals for writing a proof, we reviewed the properties of equality and congruence: symmetric, transitive, reflexive, subtraction/addition, distribution, substitution, multiplication/addition. We also reviewed the segment addition and angle addition postulates."
"In our first session, the student and I discussed her class and what she needed help with. The geometry portion of her integrated math class was where she needed the most focus. We covered some basic topics in geometry, specifically the characteristics of right triangles and how they could help with her current assignment and down the road as well. We talked about vector translations and congruent shapes as well, topics her homework addressed. She picked up the ideas and used them on her own, showing comfort with the concepts. We scheduled our next meeting for this Sunday before I left."
"The student and I met at his home and worked on a section called proving lines parallel. After reviewing the definitions (Alternate Interior Angles, Same Side Interior Angles, Corresponding Angles, Transversals, etc.), he got through his homework fairly readily."
"The student and I reviewed for his test over conditional statements, proofs, and properties. He had a hard time figuring out how to begin most of the problems; however, he did show some promising retention of the skills we covered in our past two sessions."
"Today we started reviewing properties with algebra. We applied the properties to explain simple processes to solve algebraic solutions."
"We covered mathematical proofs, along with algebraic and geometric properties of line segments and angles. The proofs had to be solved using properties that the students had learned in class, along with the definitions and deductive/inductive reasoning we had gone over in last week's session. We worked on an assignment using the mathematical proof table beginning from one or two given statements and ending with the proof of a logical statement regarding the algebraic function and geometric figures."
"The student has a test on Wednesday. We reviewed and practiced angle pair relationships, relationships with parallel lines, finding measurements of angles using diagrams, algebraic proofs, properties of equality, and solving quadratics. We made notes for the student to study from tomorrow while preparing for her test."
