Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I assisted the student as he worked on a homework assignment. The topic of the assignment was geometric probability. He seems to be retaining the fundamental knowledge that we have been working on for the last month. It was a good session."
"We again did homework out of a packet from his teacher. We worked mainly with area of polygons. We started with simply finding the areas of shapes and then moved into finding the areas and ratios of similar polygons. The student is smart and attentive, but at times gets ahead of himself and jumps into problems without fully understanding them or identifying exactly what it is he's looking to do or find."
"The student and I spent the majority of our time today going over content for her chapter 8 test she will have to take. I feel confident she will do well on chapter 8."
"The student started a new topic this week, arithmetic sequences, and he was working on his homework during the whole session today. He knows well how to determine whether a sequence is arithmetic, and how to find the common difference. He also knows well how to write an explicit formula of an arithmetic sequence. The recursive formula looked more challenging to him at first, but he understands it better after the homework practice. He needs more practice on problems that require writing an explicit formula, given two terms of the sequence (not the first term). I will send extra work for him tomorrow."
"The student is preparing for the unit 2 exam which is comprised of theorems and postulates. We reviewed the difference between the two, how to explain and prove postulates, and which theorems would be applicable to specific problems. He had three pages remaining on his review, two of which we he was responsible for completing on his own. I believe that he is capable of doing well on this course, but will need to apply himself and remain in the same class to avoid falling behind."
"The student and I reviewed for a quiz tomorrow on sections 3.1-3.4. The review included parallel line attributes, vertical, complementary, supplementary angles, and 2-column proofs."
