Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I began reviewing for her geometry final by working through a review packet. The student has a solid understanding of complementary and supplementary angles and showed great improvements in solving for proofs."
"Today we went over finding sides using proportions. I taught her Pythagorean theorem as well. She fully understands Pythagorean theorem. She's doing well, and I hope for the best during these last few weeks of the semester."
"During this session, the student and I covered his review packet and discussed multiple topics for his final including: proofs, basic geometry principles, and logic. As a part of reviewing logic, we covered the different types of statements: a statement, it's inverse, converse, and contrapositive. We reviewed some principles like Pythagorean's Theorem and the interior angle equation."
"We went over the student's material involving properties of parallelograms. We went through some proofs of theorems relating to parallelograms, followed by multiple practice problems on parallelograms and related figures. I had the him go through extra practice problems in order to solidify his practical knowledge of the material, as that was a bit of a concern before."
"This was my first session with the student and we reviewed for his Geometry final that he has later this week. We used multiple worksheets given to him by his teacher to review. The worksheets included topics such as graphing functions (domain, range, vertical asymptotes, horizontal asymptotes, slant asymptotes, x-intercepts, y-intercepts, and holes), quadratic equation, and correcting squares. The session went very well and I feel as if he will be more than ready for his final with more practice."
"The student and I completed a review guide for her upcoming Unit 5B test. She confidently answered the majority of the problems. Additional practice will garner the best results."
"This was the first session with the student. After learning about her class and current standing, for the remainder of the session she and I went over her homework together. We covered identifying parallel, intersecting, and skew lines and planes and how to determine which applied. We also went over midpoints, line segment bisectors, angle bisectors, and using those concepts to calculate lengths and angles from diagrams. Since the student stated she does best with visual learning, we discussed drawing her own figures for problems giving her difficulty and strategies for visualizing problems."
"Today we covered trig concepts (Pythagorean Theorem, sin/cos/tan) and applying them to triangles with some angle and/or side measurements given. Student needs to practice more with the trig concepts. I assigned extra reading to help with this, mostly re-reading material I had assigned on right triangles. In the Spanish half-hour, we worked on his new vocabulary words. I recommended he make flash cards for his vocabulary words and go over them nightly to study for his weekly vocab quizzes. He was doing better with the vocab by the time I left."
"The student and I reviewed the theorems, postulates, and key concepts from every chapter leading up to the one she is currently working on. We reviewed terminology, logic, converse, inverse, contrapositive, angles, and triangles, lines, parallel lines and transversals"
"We talked about the student's performance on her Chapter 3 Test and she did do better than her last test so that was good. Today, we specifically covered section 4.1 and I assigned her more practice problems than before."
"In our first session, I primarily worked with the student going over his geometry homework. The homework was specifically concerned with the transformation, reflection, rotation, and dilation of lines on a graph. By the end of the session, he seemed much more comfortable with the topic and his understanding of it was greatly improved."
"The student and I went over slopes of lines and lines in a coordinate plane. His homework consisted of slopes of lines as we reviewed exercises using the slope formula. We proceeded to the next section and did some exercises on lines in a coordinate plane. He was able to grasp the work with some ease. Overall, there are no concerns from this session."
