Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I went over chapter 11 sections 1-3 over surface area, lateral area, prisms, spheres, and cylinders. We also went over how to draw the net of a 3D figure. I challenged him to continue practicing and to continue using the formulas."
"The student is working on solving problems involving the circumference and area of circles. We worked together on the homework. She understood all the concepts well. I also gave her some more problem solving type questions, similar to ones that come up on the college entrance exam, involving circles and areas. We worked on how to find the area of a square circumscribed in a circle and vice versa. In addition, we also worked on questions that involved subtracting the area of a smaller circle from a larger one (to get a donut-type shape) and questions that involved subtracting the area of a circle from the area of a square."
"The student and I reviewed for his test on circle equations today. He breezed through most of the review so I am expecting him to do really well this unit. I spent some time reviewing concepts that his teacher indicated he should review and he did fine with these concepts. We also reviewed some vocabulary words (inscribed vs. circumscribed) so it is good we did a quick review. I am anticipating a strong performance on this unit's exam."
"On Wednesday's session, the student and I reviewed for her final exam. Her instructor gave in class the final review packet this week; therefore, this became our session's main focus. This review packet is quite long and it will take two more sessions to complete. In this review session, we focused on geometric proofs and right-angle triangles. She is doing great, and I look forward to our second review session."
"The session went very well! The student focused on completing his geometry assignments. He continues to demonstrate a greater understanding of the material week by week, and I look forward to continuing during our next session!"
"The student and I continued reviewing the trig identities (sin, cos, tan, csc, sec and cot) and how they relate to real world problems. We looked at several examples including depression angles and shadows, the measurements of the Earth, etc. We also began a review of 3D geometry and its relation to trigonometry."
