Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We worked on finding the area of rectangles, parallelograms, triangles, rhombuses, and polygons. She was confident in her understanding of the curriculum. We made flash cards that identified the shape title on one side then the area formula on the other side."
"The student and I covered altitudes, geometric means, and the tangent of an angle. I recommended she complete 5 additional practice questions per topic to understand the material better. There are a series of proportions she will need to have memorized by next week. She received a 95 on her last exam."
"The student wanted to review for an upcoming test on similarity of triangles, so we went over some exercises from this chapter. He seemed to grasp the concepts and understand what he needed to do. Also, he wanted to review factoring of polynomials since it was going to be on the test. I gave him a few problems I made up for him to do and did well in grasping the concepts. There are no other concerns from this session."
"The student and I covered angle postulates, determining the measure of angles, slope intercept form, and word problem logic while reviewing his homework for the week and studying for his upcoming chapter 3 test. He was becoming more familiar with the concepts we had discussed in the last session, such as supplementary angles and alternate interior angles but struggled with remembering a few key terms that would likely show up on his test. I suggested using flashcards to help him remember important terms, and he also intends to use his notes from the sessions to help him study."
"We completed the student's homework for lines. We went over each problem, mostly checking her work that she did in class. I am sure she sees the importance of checking her work, since we found some errors. The teacher's exam grading system is unique. She can redo exam problems to improve her scores (called levels from 1 to 4). She has not gotten back her revised exam problems."
"We covered mid segments, locus of points, incenters, circumcenters, and geometry vocabulary. The student was having the most trouble with locus of points. I told him to make flashcards with pictures to help him with the vocal portion. I saw about two of his grades on quizzes. There were some concepts he had memorized but not understood, and we went over those. He understood everything much better by the end."
