Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went through current material in geometry and completed the student's homework. We plan to have more sessions next week to cover older material."
"The student and I covered transformations, including translations, rotations and reflections. I have not seen any grades that note any progress just yet. I did not leave the student with any extra practice, nor were there any concerns, as she understood the concepts."
"This was a continuation of completing work while the student is out of school. We worked on similarity statements, proportions, and word puzzles."
"The student reported feeling very good about her exam today and she seemed to be feeling more confident about her geometry course as a whole. She has a quiz tomorrow or the next day so we spent the session focusing on new material for that. The concepts included parallel lines and planes, and how parallel lines create congruent corresponding angles, alternate interior and exterior angles, etc. She seemed interested in problems involving a combination of algebra and geometry to solve for all the angles in a diagram. We plan to meet next week to go over new material she gets after taking the quiz."
"For our last session today, the student and I studied together for his upcoming geometry exam. We ran through a review of all the topics we covered from chapter 1, including types of angles, types of lines, polygons, and congruence. He has learned a lot through our sessions and I had an amazing time working with him. He has definitely developed skills that will help him succeed in his future academics."
"Today's session started with a very small pop quiz testing the student's concerns of his time tables. I'm very pleased to say that he answered all the questions correctly! We then moved on to covering information that he's been exposed to since the last time we met. Because he's had a substitute for the last two days, he hasn't had an actual new lesson. He's been doing practice problems from the book, and in the process managed to stumble across a few that seemed a little challenging. Those problems were the main focus of our session this evening. They revolved around collinear points and points on a plane. Once he felt that he understood the material and the problems, we moved on to review introductory two-column proofs. This was not only a review of vertical angles, but also a slight introduction into corresponding angles and parallel lines with a transverse. He was very interactive during this session and was quick to answer. We left today's session with one practice proof, which we will cover at the beginning of our next session. Until then, he will also continue to make and use flashcards."
