Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student has a test tomorrow so we worked on her homework which was the chapter test review out of her book. She was doing well on all the problems. We then did a couple of proof problems to help prepare for the test."
"This session we went over similar triangles by analyzing 3 different way and explore the unknown number for each side. We did several questions on it, after we have done a couple together he has solved the rest by himself. Then we discover similar triangles by using SSS(side-side-side), ASA(angle-side-angle), AAA(angle-angle-angle) postulates. All of the above is review for the quiz he will be taking tomorrow. After we finish our session he felt ready to take the quiz and pretty confident."
"The student reviewed and worked on homework that covered quadrilaterals, in particular parallelograms, rectangles, rhombuses, squares, kites and trapezoids. She worked on solving for various parts of the parallelograms as well as working on proofs of various characteristics of rhombuses or squares."
"The student had another online P-SAT quiz and we worked on that first. He got 90% the first attempt, so we tried it again and got 100% the second time. His mom was also happy that he had gotten As on all quizzes so far in the new school year. We finished up the session by starting his next topic on inductive reasoning."
"We finished his test corrections and started on his homework. He is starting proofs and struggling a little because you have to explain every single step, which means you can't skip anything or do it in your head; you have to really understand why you're doing it. He will be working on them most of the year, so he'll have plenty of time to practice."
"We did geometry homework, which was actually just refresher of algebra factoring and solving for x with the zero product rule. The student did well - few small mistakes!"
