Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today, I helped the student work through her homework for section 3. By the end of the session, she seemed to have mastered working with parallel and perpendicular lines to find the equation of a line. We will continue to work on solving equations involving fractions."
"We covered material that would be on an upcoming test of his, including long division, multiplication with decimals, angles, identifying shapes, calculating area and perimeter, identifying types of triangles and orders of operation."
"Today, I explained and went over geometry notes with the student. We also worked on book problems. The student's physics and geometry tests come back next week and will go over them. The session went very well."
"In this lesson we covered the definition and use of sine, cosine, and tangent, as well as their inverses. The student said he has a test tomorrow. I recommend that he get some sleep this evening and wake up early in the morning refreshed, and run over some last minute confirmatory techniques for solving for variables as I feel he is lacking in this fundamental skill set from algebra and it may prove to be his greatest weakness during tomorrow's test. I told him to call or write me tomorrow if he as any further questions."
"During our session the student and I began working on quadratic graph properties, as well as factoring by completing the square (to turn a standard form quadratic equation into a vertex form equation). He excelled at graph properties, and I believe he understands them fully. As for completing the square, he struggled a little. He had a few misconceptions about the process, but we worked through them."
"We covered the Pythagorean theorem. The student has an understanding of how to use two sides of a right triangle to find the length of the third side. However, when several triangles are joined together, he needs to be able to figure out relevant information. I suggested he try to find the lengths of sides that are shared by more than one triangle, then use the Pythagorean theorem again to find the lengths of the other sides. He needs to improve on simplifying radicals. We will continue to work on that."
