Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I covered the student's semester review. There were right triangle properties, circles, and regular polygons. She had some trouble knowing how to do trig and inverse trig. I showed her different ways to solve different problems. I showed her how to start with SOHCAHTOA and then solve for what she needed. The win is that she understands most of it."
"The student and I worked on her geometry final review, covering topics from chapters 7 through 11 in her textbook. She had trouble with the circles chapter (chapter 10) and requested I bring worksheets based on those topics for the next session on Monday."
"We spent the whole session reviewing for the student's upcoming geometry final. I think that he will be in good shape for it after our practice and the reviewing they will do in class this week. Next session, we will began spending most of our time doing algebra review."
"Today both students were preparing for an upcoming quiz on systems of inequalities and graphing linear inequalities. Both were having trouble at the start, but after providing thorough explanations for the concepts and working some examples together, both were able to correctly work through several problems on their own without much help. They both are well prepared for their quiz!"
"We spent the majority of the time on reviewing material relating to the student's last quiz and upcoming quiz. He seems to understand the concepts, but struggles when it comes to word problems in which he has to draw the situation described (he seems okay with word problems where a picture is given). We spent some time discussing methods of dissecting word problems for the relevant information to generate a picture of the scenario that allows him to apply the skills he already knows. He had a positive attitude and seemed excited to learn."
"We spent one hour learning about the nervous and endocrine systems. Then we spent one hour doing plane geometry practice problems and solid geometry practice problems. We plan to do coordinate geometry next session."
