Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"In this session, we reviewed the rules for simplifying radicals and the rules for evaluating radicals that are multiplied or divided. We also went over how to evaluate radicals that are being added and subtracted. She practiced evaluating these simple expressions and expressions with several terms and operations. We also discussed how math relates to the financial projections of her favorite store."
"The student reported that she obtained a 94% on her math test which is a significant improvement. Her overall grade in the class has improved. I am impressed with her ability to grasp the mathematical concepts and move forward. Today, we were able to review 10-3 because she was struggling with a concept from 10-3. She was able to understand it after working through some problems. Then we continued on to 10-4 and part of 10-5, both of which came more easily as an understanding to her."
"We specifically went over the different types of shapes, Rhombus, Rectangle, and Square. The student was having the most trouble applying the information about the shapes into homework problems. As a result I gave her some tips on how to solve these types of problems. I left her to finish the homework. Overall, the session was excellent."
"We went over the student's latest exam, looking at the problems she missed a couple points on. Then we began working on the giant review packet she got for her final. We got through 8 of the 11 pages of work. It covered everything she has covered in the class so far such as distance formula, midpoint formula, circles, and a variety of theorems involving quadrilaterals, triangles and parallel lines. On a lot of topics she just needed a refresher on the equations and it seemed like she felt fairly confident afterwards. She is going to try to finish the packet on her own and we will meet again on Wednesday to go over any questions she has before her Thursday exam."
"I prepared the student for her test on congruent triangles. We reviewed proofs, definitions, and problems involving algebra to solve for missing parts. She is well prepared for her test and I feel that she has mastered this subject. I asked to review definitions associated with triangles to include medias, altitudes, and perpendicular bisectors. I also recommended that during her exam, she sketch diagrams of the triangles if not provided as part of the question to help visualize the steps in answering the question."
"Today I reviewed triangle medians and altitudes with the student. Then we compared the difference between the three and perpendicular bisects. She drew them and explained them verbally. Next is to write each one and proofs for parallelograms."
