Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I assisted the student with his geometry homework, which consisted of inverse trigonometric ratios and trigonometric ratios to solve for the missing parts of triangles. He did a good job on the homework. There were some parts of the homework that he initially did not understand but after I explained the methods on how to solve them he was able to go through them rather quickly and efficiently."
"Today was my second meeting with this student. He is in a different Geometry class now with a different teacher and book. He is much more comfortable with this change. He has a test on Monday on Chapter 6 of the book and we went over the homework problems he's completed so far from 6.1-6.4. He completed most of the problems easily. We spent the most time going over properties of parallelograms and will continue this in our session on Sunday. Before our next meeting on Sunday, he will finish the remaining homework problems for Chapter 6 (6.5-6.6) as well as make organized notes for all of Chapter 6 (6.1-6.6)."
"The student and I worked with angles that were inscribed in and through the radius of a circle and those that were outside of the circle but made with tangent and secant lines. Initially, she had a hard time understanding what was going on, but we made a chart of what to do when working with each angle and then she was more confident. On some of the more complicated ones I did need to help her out a little bit, but she followed where I was going and could find some of the angles herself. I think she might need a little bit more work to be completely confident but she is well on her way there."
"Today we covered transformations, specifically translations and reflections (some review of rotation). The student had an upbeat attitude, and she was willing to learn. I suggested writing down formulas or "tricks" on her quiz as soon as she gets it, so she can remember the curriculum throughout the test and relieve nerves."
"We went over the review sheet for the upcoming quiz on Friday, paying particular attention to the problems using line segment or angle sum problems that lead into algebra problems, and how to make sure we're using all the information that's available to us to set up an equation we can solve. The student has an eagerness to learn that's really nice to watch unfold, and I'm looking forward to working more with her."
"We discussed the student's homework and reviewed quiz questions from the end of Chapter. He understand the concepts well. He is ahead in Math for his age and does well with most of the questions."
