Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During this session we continued to work on proofs and also worked on logic. We spent most of the time on the proof because the student has an exam today. It was difficult construing all the questions into the format his teacher had taught--we were also looking at questions that weren't covered. After the session he felt a lot more comfortable. He also had a take home exam on Logic. We got through it with ease. The student was much more comfortable with logic. The biggest difficulty faced was explaining why for each question because his teacher wants it in a very specific way. Overall this session went well."
"We covered convergence in depth, and reviewed all of chapter 4 for her test on Friday. We also did various textbook problems for each section and sample exam problems her teacher gave her."
"During this session, we worked on the student's geometry and chemistry homework, as well as planned out a study strategy for her upcoming history test."
"The student is learning about measuring arc lengths based on opposite angles in a circle. We talked a bit about the rules, and she worked on a few problems to make sure she understands the concept. She didn't have much trouble with the material. We continued to work through old exam problems. When we go over concepts together before she starts a problem, she can do most of the work herself. However, she often has trouble identifying the concepts on her own, which should improve as we work through exam questions."
"I helped the student work on her math project this session. She needed to come up with a floor plan of a house that has at least 5 rooms and used at least 5 different polygons. Then, she had to find the area of each room and figure out how much the flooring of the house would cost. Since she believes that her math class will focus on this project for the rest of the week, I will hope to use our next session to introduce her to the ACT math test."
"Today we reviewed the topics on the final exam. We began the lesson by going over the circle topics--Two-Tangent Theorem and how to find arc length/radius. The student seemed to be more careful with her work--she set up the proportion carefully and did cross multiplication and did it step by step. It turned out that most/all of the answers she got were correct on this topic. Then we moved on by going over the questions that she felt the most uncomfortable with--we began with trig, which she forgot a little, but with a little-medium amount of help, she managed to pick up and could do the right triangle problems and trig on her own. I am glad that her memory on these topics were coming back. I helped her to solve some 30-60-90 triangles and other ones with trig. According to her, after the lesson she felt much more comfortable. She was on her way."
