Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today was our last review session. We focused on formulas to memorize including the 2-D and 3-D object formulas, formulas for circles, trigonometry, and special right triangles. Also, we went through problems dealing with 3-D objects, relationships between scale factors, area, and volume of similar figures, right triangles, circles, and triangle inequalities. He was progressing in memorizing the formulas. He did struggle with the relationship between scale factors, area, and volume of similar figures. I had sent him a review sheet over the material I thought would be on the final. Tomorrow, he takes his final to see if he passes out of Geometry for the upcoming school year. He said that he felt confident about the Mid-Term he took today."
"We discussed more 2 column proofs as well as the basics of elementary logic (converse, inverse, contrapositive). After working through the problems in his homework, I quizzed him on the theory and he absorbed it adequately. We then talked about being prepared to study for an upcoming quiz and working on his ecology work on Thursday."
"Today we went over angles today in geometry. We practiced with acute, obtuse, adjacent, complementary, and supplementary angle problems. We went over problems that were showed real life examples of what he was learning in geometry. We also went over a worksheet for chemistry over measurement techniques."
"Spent the time reviewing for a test the following day. Reviewed angle pairs and angle relationships. Plus applied these concepts to problems student wanted to focus on. Suggested student follow up with review of definitions to prepare for his test."
"The student picked back up on her Algebra and Geometry skills very quickly. I let her control the pace of the session as it was a review and I wanted to cover everything she had questions on. I gave her some online resources for Geometry review. She appeared to be confident about her upcoming math placement exam upon the completion of the session."
"Today we reviewed for the student's first test over Chapter 1. Last week she had a quiz over what we had previously covered and she made a 92. In our session today we covered the remaining section (midpoint and distance formula) and worked through review problems for the entire chapter. The student was able to do the problems based on the previous content without any problems. We finished by talking about a few test taking strategies and she said that she felt good about the upcoming test."
"Completed the student's homework on perimeters of various shapes. Began reviewing older material for his test next week. He has good knowledge of the distance formula."
"The student and I covered quadratic factoring as well as complex number arithmetic (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division). I am confident that the student has a clear process for excelling on her upcoming assessment."
"Today, we went through introductions, as well as discussed expectations with the student and parents. After which, we started looking at a brief overview of two dimensional and three dimensional figures to give him a leg up in his class."
"We went over the homework and the student's quizzes today. We also did some of his packet but left some to be covered next session. He has a test on Tuesday so we are scheduled to meet on Monday. We practiced and used the angle addition theorem and the segment addition theorem in order to find x or a side in a diagram."
"We covered rigid body transformations, especially reflections and rotation today. I checked the student's homework and helped her with the online practice quiz. I also checked the math in her Physical Science homework."
"The student wanted to review over her homework and material for a quiz. It consisted of definitions of lines, segments, rays, bisectors. She knew the definitions and could identify them from figures/diagrams. We also went over angles. This was a little bit more of a challenge for her but after working through the problems she was much more comfortable. She does better when the diagram is already drawn for her and she need to practice reading a word problem and drawing a diagram from that to help her answer the questions."
