Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During this session, we worked through a good portion of the student's review packet, much of which he had completed on his own. I was very impressed by his own motivation. The material that he struggled with most was older material from the semester. I suggested that next semester, that he save all of his assignments, quizzes, and tests, so that he can refer back to them. Additionally, while I know that he had the tools to solve a lot of the problems, he wasn't reading the questions carefully, and often didn't give an answer to the exact question. I suggested that he underline exactly what the question is asking in order to help him. He did really well on the logic/conditional portions, and really stayed focused during the entire session."
"Worked with the student on reviewing for her final. Has a great idea of most concepts but needs extra help on degrees-minutes, logic puzzles, supplement of a compliment, and always, sometimes, never questions. Will work on those for Monday's review session."
"We went over problems and proofs involving planes, plane figures, congruency, and other topics related to her current topic's homework. We made a plan with her mother to review past quizzes and tests to look for general trends to focus attention on before her next assessment."
"The student and I reviewed tonight and tomorrow's homework on circle equations. We also started reviewing the next section on tangents and secants and started that homework. We will meet again on Wednesday before his midterm."
"We reviewed all new material from last week on circles - relating arc lengths to inscribed angles, angles of lines that intersect inside of a circle and lines that intersect outside of a circle, and the relationship between arc lengths, angles and circumference. We also reviewed how to solve right triangles when given one angle and one side, or two sides. We finally went over the definitions of trapezoids, parallelograms, rhombus, squares and rectangles. She is doing very well with the new material (right triangles and circles) but needs to memorize properties of shapes."
"In today's session, the student and I went over some of the new topics for this chapter. We worked through problems that involved identifying theorems used in proofs for similar triangles. I think the more practice problems we do, the more comfortable the student will get with the work."
