Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over her Geometry homework as an introduction to circles. Then we went over the next few sections in her text book on chords, arcs and inscribed polygons. She had trouble when she had to put multiple steps together, but did really well with individual parts."
"We focused on Geometry and Physics this session. I picked an incomplete handout from his notes section and had him work through with me on Geometric circles and secant/segment/tangent theorems. I also picked out an incomplete Physics handout and had him work through the whole assignment with me. The subjects covered include elastic energy, kinetic energy, potential energy, spring force, and calculations of objects with both potential energy and kinetic energy. I assigned him extra homework; Chapter 8 & 9 test reviews (right triangles/similar triangles)."
"The student has a test tomorrow, so we spent the time reviewing the chapter on areas of polygons and circles. We reviewed all formulas and did several practice problem sets. She is well prepared in terms of memorizing all formulas and did really well on most problems. The only part where she struggled a bit was finding areas of parts of circles (i.e. a circle with only part of it shaded and finding the area of the shaded region). We worked more on these problems and I advised her to work on dividing up the area into usable shapes. I also suggested this as her main practice before the test tomorrow."
"We began the session by discussing probability and solving related problems. We then shifted to a review of the student's upcoming (May 2nd) End of Course Test (EOCT). She needs to practice writing Triangle Congruence Proofs as well as using radical expressions; These two topics will be our area of focus during the next tutoring session. She took a test last week and feels very confident as she waits for her results."
"After reviewing last weeks material, the student and I continued from where we left off last week. We started on page 5 on GA Virtual, inscribed angles, and quadrilaterals. We then continued to angles and arcs. These sections were heavy in theorems so the discussion was a little more convoluted than hoped. Still, considering the study, he understand the material fairly well. With further practice, he should really feel comfortable with the material. In addition, we took the corresponding quiz, testing the material."
"The student and I reviewed the rigid motion module we have been working through this week. We had been concentrating on congruence, translation, reflection, and rotation. She is to complete her chapter assignments before next time."
