Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"This was our first session together, so we started by looking at her text. We decided to follow the text order until she can contact her teacher and possibly get a syllabus. So we started with lines, rays, and planes, defining the vocabulary and working a few problems. Then we moved to angles and defined supplementary and complementary angles. She worked a few problems, and her homework is six problems from the text on angles. Great attitude!"
"The student was beginning preparations for his geometry final, and we covered some triangle and polygon theorems relating to those topics, including the midsegment theorem for triangles and trapezoids, the kite theorems, and similarity."
"The student and I went over geometry problems involving the properties of arcs, chords, tangents, secants, and angles in relation to circles. We also went over problems involving the trigonometric ratios for right triangles. This was in preparation for the upcoming geometry state assessment exam."
"The student had a specific assignment from her teacher: CPCTC, which stands for "corresponding parts of congruent triangles are congruent." We did a lot of practice for this, then did a little more varied trig."
"We finished going through the student's final exam review packet. He is good at the electricity problems, but needs to pay attention to the inverse-square nature of the gravity force equation. We agreed to meet again on Monday at 3:00, and that I would prepare some practice problems for him."
"The student and I continued working on statistics review packets. We first went over the assigned problems given last session. From there, we went over margin of error and binomial distribution. He had fewer issues with the concepts and more applied them towards his calculator on exercises. I showed him how to apply the work to his calculator, and from there, he had no more issues. We spent the rest of the session completing his packet on the subject."
