Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Student 1 and I worked on her Chemistry review together for her exam tomorrow. We cover radiation, periodic table trends, and basic atomic theory. Student 2 and I worked on bisecting, lines, angles, and performing math functions with positive and negative integers."
"We covered similarities of triangles and applied those methods in solving a few different kinds of problems. The major idea this time around for the more complicated problems was to split them into smaller systems of triangles and combine the results."
"The student and I went over a new geometry topic, indirect proof. We did all the examples and homework so that she felt confident with the material. Next, we decided to do the next chapter so she can be ahead of her class, so we went over parallel lines, and completed the homework from that chapter too."
"Student 1 and I spent the session working on his research paper due on Thursday over Fannin and the Texas Revolution. Student 2 and I reviewed her science homework, covering cell diagrams and function before moving on to start her science review packet."
"Today I met with the student for the last time, in preparation for her ACT Compass test tomorrow. We started by addressing some practice problems, with which she was uncomfortable. This included adding fractions, mean median mode, and algebra. We then moved on to simplifying equations, and plugging in values to solve factoring problems. At the end of the session we quickly reviewed lines. I plan on sending her some practice problems tonight, to study before her test tomorrow. I wish her the best of luck on her test, and I think that she'll do well on the numerical and algebra sections of the exam."
"This was my first lesson with this student. She has an assignment due tomorrow night and wowie is it a big one! It contains three smaller programs, and we really only talked about the first two at all. The concepts involved were vectors in general, two-dimensional arrays and/or vectors, algorithms/loops, and file i/o. She still has a lot of work to do but I think she'll be able to finish programs 1 and 2 by the deadline."
