Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today's session went well. We covered all the concepts that will be on her test tomorrow by going over her test review packet. Some of the concepts we went over were identifying different types of angles, locating and solving for the midpoint, finding the distance between two points, utilizing what we know about angle properties to solve for variables. She feels very confident in her ability to ace her upcoming test. I was told that one of her geometry teachers commended her on her improvement in the subject matter."
"We continued work on geometry, with a focus on the properties of a rhombus and its diagonals. I reviewed with the student some of her homework problems then gave her additional problems that used the same concepts to test how well she retained the material. I also started reviewing her on algebra (factoring) because her classwork is showing more and more usage of algebra to solve geometry problems. In addition, I introduced to her the idea of previewing upcoming content for her classes. After she finishes her homework for a class for the day, she should spend around 10 minute looking ahead so she knows what's coming up and to help prepare her for the next day's classes."
"The student and I went over mathematics tutoring, answering his questions and getting up to speed to make sure he stays ahead of his assignments. He continues to demonstrate the passion necessary to make real improvements! I look forward to our next session."
"The student and I spent the entire session prepping for his test tomorrow on polygons and quadrilaterals. We did several practice problems from every section that will be on his test. He did very well with the material and we even did some of the challenge problems to boost his confidence. He and I both feel that he is really ready for his exam."
"I assisted the student with his geometry review. I ensured that he knew the formulas for the surface area, lateral area and volume of various geometric figures. He felt much more confident than he did before we started the session."
"The student and I worked together and covered circles, inscribed angles, and polygons. We defined major arcs, minor arcs, inscribed angle and intercepted arcs in a given circle. The following theorems are some of the key concepts that were discussed: 1. The measure of an inscribed angle is one half the measure of its intercepted arc. 2. If two inscribed angles of a circle intercept the same arc, then the angles are congruent. 3. If a right triangle is inscribed in a circle, then the hypotenuse is a diameter of the circle. 4. A quadrilateral can be inscribed in a circle if and only if its opposite angels are supplementary (180 degrees)."
