Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student had a test last week and felt like she did really well on it, but did not know her score yet. We worked on her homework, which covered Pythagorean theorem and special right triangles. We had to review simplifying radicals, but she caught on to the topics quickly."
"In today's session, the student and I went through a review packet to help prepare him for his upcoming exam. The material consisted of problems that dealt a great deal with factoring. Upon completion of our session, the student felt extremely confident about the material and he is looking forward to getting one more study session in before his exam to make sure he knows every bit of this unit's material."
"The student and I reviewed transformations. We were able to construct transformations for dilations, translations, rotations, and reflections. We practiced a few rotation transformations, he felt more comfortable with the new strategy that I taught him. He is very cooperative and he does not hesitate to ask questions."
"Today we worked on circles - arcs, chords, circumference, central angles, theorems regarding circle properties. She struggled a bit on knowing when to apply Pythagorean theorem in certain problems. She felt very comfortable with the reviewed material. One thing I reminded her is to not add in her x variable when the problem already gives algebraic expressions (with x). Her textbook has good practice problems. She got an A on her last geometry test."
"During today's session, we first discussed the student's class project coming up this Friday. It involves a 15 minute presentation of 3D coordinate geometry, including an interactive activity with the class. I reviewed her notes and research about the topic, and provided her with some suggestions on interactive activities. Next, we prepared for her exam tomorrow. We reviewed the last two sections of Chapter 6 and all of Chapter 7. I addressed her questions about specific homework problems, and we also reviewed concepts and formulas. She appears very well prepared for the exam tomorrow as well as her presentation on Friday."
"The student and I worked on her test review (test next class) for geometry. The student was able to complete almost all of the problems with no issue. There were 2 questions on the review that were calculus-based (finding areas under curves)."
