Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed his geometry and physics homework again. Current topics covered; congruent triangles, algebraic proofs, and velocities. We also reviewed a portion of his Spanish flashcards, to refresh his memory on common Spanish verbs."
"The student and I spent the majority of our session today discussing a geometry project where he was required to construct a city map with different geometry terms. We reviewed the definitions of angle bisector, co-planar, co-linear, perpendicular, parallel, corresponding angles, perpendicular angles, opposite angles, and transecting angles for his project. We then used these terms and definitions to draw a city map that exemplified each of these ideas. The student showed great understanding of the material and definitions today and was able to utilize his knowledge from class to construct a nice map that used the terms required."
"Really drilled in the concept of writing down the thought process. Practiced writing proofs for finding missing side lengths and angle measurements in similar triangles and right triangles. Reviewed some more algebra of how to solve systems of equations. Did some more work with parallel lines."
"The student did not have any homework in her classes during our session. This allowed us to get ahead of her geometry class. We completed a few worksheets and made sure that she understood it completely."
"The student and I worked through practice problems for Chapter 4 in Geometry, then discussed mitosis and the cell cycle. She did not have homework today and seemed to feel confident about her Geometry quiz from this morning."
"In this session, the student practiced simplifying long expressions with exponents. We discussed PEMDAS and how it specifically applies to exponents. We also discussed how to determine which terms an exponent applies to."
"We did review for the student's final exam next week. We covered translation, rotation, and dilation. I can assess that he is ready for the exam. Assigned more practice in rotation part and multiplying fractions."
"During this session, we reviewed for her midterm exam. We went over her review sheet. She understood all of the concepts that we discussed that were on the review guide and she seemed well prepared for her test."
"Worked on the review packet for her final exams in geometry and chemistry. She did very well with the geometry and most of the chemistry. She had a little trouble with heat equations, so I explained them and recommended extra practice."
"The student and I worked on triangles and theorems involving Isosceles/ Equilateral triangles and triangle relationships. We worked on problems in the relevant chapters and I assigned her some hw problems."
"We reviewed for her semester final which covered chapters 1 through four in her textbook. We went over practice problems in each section and then focused on the sections she felt she needed the most work with."
"The session went very well. We over the remainder of the student's study guide, reinforcing ASA, SAS, and SSS as well as triangle proofs to make sure she aces her test on Thursday. I'm looking forward to continuing."
