Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"In preparation for the student's geometry exam we studied chapter eleven which includes surface area, volume, lateral area, and lateral height of various prisms and 3-d shapes."
"The student and I worked through his volume practice quizzes and then worked through many volume practice problems."
"Completed figure geometry assignment and began working on the permutations and combinations chapters. The student did very well."
"The student needed help with a variety of application problems for the Pythagorean theorem and geometric mean. I was able to re-teach these concepts to her and demonstrate practice problems. She was able to complete these problems by the end of our session, but needs additional practice with word problems about the Pythagorean theorem. I left her with some additional practice for geometric mean."
"Tonight the student and I worked on geometric mean, writing similarity statements, finding sides and angles of triangles using sin, cos, and tan, and finding sides of triangles by using similar triangles in preparation for her test tomorrow. She seemed very confident on the topics and should not need to worry about her test at all tomorrow. We also worked on the differences between when to use sin and sin^-1 (cos and tan also). She had a great attitude towards the subject and really seems to understand it well."
"The student and I resumed our regular sessions after her final exam. We focused on volume of prisms and cylinders. She had several worksheets from her class that helped provide examples and ample practice to understand the concepts."
