Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Our first session went very well. She has an exam on Thursday, so we went over her review packet. I told her to feel free to contact me if she has any questions or needs another session before then."
"We went over the student's homework that dealt with chord and arc-relationships in circles. I had him do several practice problems and by the end of the session, the student was much more comfortable with these concepts."
"The student and I went over both geometry and physics during our session. In geometry we covered proving similar triangles and polygons which it appeared she seemed to grasp and in physics we covered heat. We went through a homework worksheet that covered the concept of heat and going through converting temperature between kelvin, Celsius and Fahrenheit. She didn't struggle with any of the concepts or conversions."
"Today's session finished up the lesson on circles, tangents, secants, inscribed angles and polygons, and intercepted arcs. We worked through a problem set applying the concepts. We employed a strategy of identifying the type of problem, setting up the generic example, and then filling in with the given information. The lesson on circles covers a lot of ground and requires a review of algebra (including factoring and solving quadratic equations). The next session will include a cumulative review of the course to this point in preparation for the mid-term exam."
"I assisted the student with a review of his geometry homework, which consisted of going over a worksheet that dealt with proportions. I showed him how to solve proportions with variables in them and reviewed the concept of similar shapes and showed how the concept of proportions relates to similar shapes. He did a good job of paying attention and seemed to grasp the concepts that I was teaching him. I also double-checked his work and made sure that it was correct."
"The student has a test tomorrow on similar triangles and proportions. We went through his review sheet together. He did most of it on his own with very little help from me. He understood the concepts and only had a few algebraic errors."
