Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I helped the student prepare for her test. She needed review of her study guide but then eventually understood all the examples and memorized the formulas."
"The student and I worked on review problems from pages 41, 42 and 43 of the text. He has his third exam tomorrow, and hopefully we will have some exam score feedback soon."
"The student had a few problems related to finding volume and surface area of spheres. She was still working on memorizing the formulas, but once that obstacle was cleared she had a good handle on solving for either variable."
"We cover ray, segments, lines, angle measurements and basic properties of quadrilaterals. The student knows the material but we have to improve her confidence level so that she can actually do the work faster."
"Today we went over practice problems I gave the student for homework. There were big improvements but still some issues solving similar triangles. After going over the problems, he definitely got the concept. We did a practice state assessment and I had him solve the problems by saying out loud what he intended to do. He followed a lot of good habits I wanted him to do such as drawing diagrams when really needed and writing out his work with organization. Definitely big improvements from last time and I expect the same focus and determination with the homework assignments I gave him."
"We started by working through problems involving finding the distance between two points and determining if they are congruent. We then talked about how to use a protractor and the student practiced measuring some angles. We also discussed how to name them and determine if they are acute, obtuse, or right. We also talked about the definition of perpendicular lines and perpendicular bisectors. He will need a geometry kit with a compass and triangles to be able to make constructions of these. We also looked at the definition of supplementary and complementary angles and how to determine if two angles are either. We also practiced applying the distance and midpoint formula."
