Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today the student and I completed several different assessments in module 7. He briefly read through each section on his own, but he is naturally good at trigonometry. Without assistance I proctored 4 different section assessments for him, and he got 100% on all of them."
"We worked on finding area of various shapes using our triangle and rectangle formulas. We also incorporated sin, cos, tan ratios, Pythagorean triples to help us find missing information. The session went very well."
"Today we went over parallelograms in geometry problems. We had to use previous postulates to solve some of the problems (ex: internal angles being supplementary between a pair of parallel lines that were intersected by another line). We even had to use the distance formula to prove that a parallelogram was either a rhombus, a square or a rectangle. I told him to continue to review the diagram in his book that explained how each parallelogram was related to another parallelogram."
"We went over the student's quiz review worksheet, which included slopes, parallel and perpendicular lines, and angles. We covered the angles last week, so we focused more on the new material. We also had time to go over two proofs at the end of the session. He is really understanding the angles and lines topics well."
"The student started doing two column proofs in her class. She had several worksheets that she wanted to go over with me, so we spent the whole session working on these two column proof worksheets. We also went over some of the postulates she had learned in class. She also had some questions from her textbook that she wanted to go over as well."
"When I walked in the door, the student was so excited to show me the Chemistry test we prepared for together. She ran to get it, and came back with the paper- a big 107% and smiley face written at the top! It was a great start to the session. We then went over her geometry homework for the night. She is learning about parallelograms and understands the ways to prove a quadrilateral is a parallelogram pretty well."
