Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I completed a test review study guide with the student. We reviewed many problems involving areas and perimeters. Some basic trig functions were also utilized. She will do well on her test."
"We reviewed for the student's chapter 8 exam. We went over the important formulas that she would have to be familiar with in order to answer questions about surface area, lateral area, volume, arc length, sector area, and the segment of a circle. She seemed capable of using the appropriate formula for each question, but would occasionally stumble and incorrectly apply a formula. We will work on that in future sessions. Overall, however, she seemed to have a good grasp of the material."
"The student has an exam coming up. While last session we reviewed the assigned practice packet, this session we reviewed practice problems that he selected from the book. He seems confident with most of the material that will be presented on the exam. The questions that he had trouble solving at first had an algebraic component to them, and he was able to figure out how to solve them upon review. The majority of this session focused on test-taking strategy, such as not investing too much time on one problem the first time around. It seems like the student is able to work through more difficult problems by skipping them initially and going back to them later."
"We answered the student's homework about circles. He finished all of the questions. He was refreshed on circles theorem and calculations."
"The student had another very good session. We are working our way through multiple geometric concepts. Today the focus was on right triangles, area and perimeter, and coordinate geometry. Once he learned the concepts he had no problems. We will meet again on Saturday."
"The student completed his weekly packet of practice problems. I was happy to find that he had begun the packet and gotten every problem that he tried correct. After completing the packet we worked on problems from his Geometry book to prepare for his finale. He demonstrated that he could properly identify when to use the slope formula and use it correctly. He did the same with the distance formula. I was very happy to see he could now do this without any help. He also has a strong understanding of two-dimensional shapes, which is very important. We will be reviewing for his final for our remaining sessions. He has a good attitude, as always. He seems very pleased with his progress and is gaining confidence, which is great."
