Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered concepts of equidistance and angle bisectors as well as slope and slope formula. We applied these concepts to practice problems and proofs to prepare for the test this week."
"The student and I worked through a couple of problems regarding tessellations. After spending our time prepping for his test regarding that, we moved to cellular respiration where he seemed to be very competent and knowledgeable on everything he had to know."
"Proving triangles are congruent in the coordinate plane. Finished homework and reviewed for chapter 4 test"
"I started this session by reviewing the rules for determining angles that the student had already seen, and then moved on to new ways of determining angles - total exterior angle, total interior angle for shapes other than triangles, regular polygons, and rules about angle measure for trapezoids and kites. I slowly guided her through a few problems she'd been given on each subject, and then through problems of my own for the subjects she'd been having the most trouble with."
"The student and I discussed logic statements, their truth value, and proof writing. We reviewed several laws of logic such as modus ponens, modus tollens, syllogism, disjunctive inference, conjunctive addition, etc. We applied the laws in different scenarios to draw the conclusions and evaluate their truth value. We also identified the laws in given statements and conclusions. We reviewed the truth table including the truth value of the inverse, converse, and contrapositive statement. We determined whether a compound logic statement was a tautology by constructing the truth table. Finally, we applied the elemental knowledge to write a formal proof. She did a wonderful job today; she has mastered the materials and stayed inspirational throughout the session."
"We went over lines intersecting circles: tangents, secants, chords and the theorems and properties of them. The student seems to be getting it better with practice, being able to apply concepts already learned before to new concepts. He would definitely benefit from more practice by himself as well."
