Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today's session with the student went well. We worked on the first part of chapter 8 in his book which covers the basics of trig functions, geometric mean, sine, cosine, tangent. The student always has a great attitude when we work together. I saw his chapter six retake and he did very well, around a 90%."
"The student and I went over the last half of chapter 7 and 8.1-8.2. Her teacher told her she would be tested on this the following day. She had a test from chapter 7 and a quiz from chapter 8 that we used to review material she did not understand at the time. I gave her a strategy to answering her test questions. Her strategy is to 1. Locate what she's trying to find, 2. Underline key words, 3. Decide which geometry property/formula she will be using."
"In this session we reviewed the student's geometry homework. The homework assignment was based on the angles of polygons. She is able to work out the problem if I guide her through it and ask her questions to get her thinking about what to do. But had a bit of trouble solving problems on her on using the strategies we used. She needs some help making connections between problems."
"The student worked on homework. We did corrections for a quiz she took recently. I asked her to start gathering her old tests and notes to begin preparing for the exam."
"Today's lesson focused on finding the area and perimeter of regular and irregular geometric shapes. Some of the problems we solved were complex. The student will finish up an assignment on her own and we will check it together before we begin the next lesson."
"I helped the student understand how to solve the problems he got wrong on his last test. After this I assisted him with understanding the material from his next section, which is on circles, chords, tangents, secants, etc. We also went through some example problems. He was very attentive throughout the session."
