Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed for the student's test which focused on isosceles triangles, equilateral triangles and angle theorems. After identifying the method the student was able to solve the problems."
"Today was our first session and the student had just taken an exam on Chapter 3.1-3.4, but we still reviewed the concepts in these sections. We completed her homework assignments for 3.3 and 3.4. She did seem to be struggling with some concepts from earlier sections so we also reviewed those to better understand the current sections. By the end of the session, she did seem to feel more comfortable with the material. I did not leave her with any additional practice for this session, but did ask her to review her exam and ask me questions during our next session. We're off to good start!"
"Today we covered the two new sections they've worked on since their test. He made an 82 on the test, which is a drastic improvement from the F that he made on the previous one. He was having the most trouble with graphing reflections. I'm a little concerned about the neatness of his work, but we're working on it."
"The student did not do well on her quiz regarding conditional statements. Actually identifying counterexamples and determining true or false is an issue but we worked on it. Going over her quiz she realized the simple mistakes and received a 25/36. She has a test regarding the rest of the chapter which includes deductive reasoning. We discussed how to model integers and different cases proving certain conjectures. Also got an introduction to theorems and postulates and using them in table proofs to prove specific claims. I gave her some problems to review."
"We worked with relationships between angles and using those to solve for angles. We also worked with triangles in preparation for his test on Thursday. He has the tools to do well on this test. If the student studies and puts his mind to it, he knows the material and will do well."
"The student scored As on his most recent assessments in geometry and chemistry. We covered spectroscopy concepts for chemistry and ways of rewriting quadratic functions for geometry. I am confident in his conceptual understanding for both of these courses."
"On Sunday, the student and I covered introductions to proofs as well as vocabulary and applications of vocab. We worked through several of her past homework assignments to help support her in developing a proof. Additionally, we looked ahead to the next week of geometry in which she is taking a chapter test. We looked over the concepts for chapter 2 and worked through topics/skills she had questions on. She is really skilled at solving algebraic equations. Currently, we are working on her understanding of geometry so that she can successfully solve the problems."
"We went through homework and practice problems involving alternate interior/exterior and corresponding angles, parallel and skew lines. We reviewed picking up the corresponding angles concept and correctly identifying corresponding angles. I explained to her to continue viewing it as being in the same 'quadrant' when looking at the intersecting lines forming four angles."
"Today, the student and I continued examining triangle congruence. He showed clear improvement, getting a lot of work right on his own or with minimal prompting, in part because he started remembering how the theorems work."
"We reviewed the student's test corrections. He did well in most topics. He is in an advanced geometry class, and we strategized a method of studying for proofs that would move him just ahead of the curve to raise his scores and help him with his tests in the future."
"We went through an admission test for his new school and looked at the first sections of geometry. He has a great sense of logic in approaching these type of problems which helps him solve multiple choice questions. We will go through his geometry material and cover some problems we left off today on the next session."
"The student and I went over his geometry homework. He has a logic section, and his homework was about inductive and deductive reasoning, number patterns, syllogisms and Venn diagrams. By the end of the session he had a better understanding of what the homework entailed."
