Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"In this session, we worked through everything that the student has done with circles and arcs in her class, in preparation for her test tomorrow. She did very well with getting through about half of the study guide on her own before I got there. There were only a few issues that she had, which were mostly things that she couldn't remember how to do on her own but easily remembered once reminded of them. She is doing very well and has improved dramatically in her math skills over this year."
"The student and I went over his makeup homework assignments over the similarity chapter. Some examples of the topics that we went over are similarity statements, ratios and proportions, and similar polygons."
"The student and I went through new homework problems and concepts involving circles and tangencies of lines passing by them, most often used to pull right triangles out in order to solve for sides represented as important distances. We worked a few specific problems, and he solved them well, understanding the concept of how to see the triangles within the circular diagrams and utilizing the Pythagorean Theorem to solve for lengths highlighted. He has a test next Tuesday and feels confident so far about being ready to score well on it."
"The student and I reviewed the notes and homework she had covering the first several sections of the new chapter that she was beginning in class."
"The student and I continued studying for her final exam, as we spent almost all of our time working off of the study guide provided by her teacher. We worked our way through the questions until we got to a place where she struggled, then we'd try to tackle that issue. Since most of the material was review, she had a pretty good handle on it. We spent a good deal of time on parametric equations, but after some practice she got the hang off it again."
"The student had a homework assignment and test review packet for us to work through, covering a broad range of units. With my guidance she completed her homework based on similar triangles - proofs, ratios and calculating sides. She has a good grasp of the principles and needs continued practice/homework to become more adept. The review packet covered recent and older units: some algebra, more secants/chords/angles etc. and graphing. She needed some correction and direction, but she understands more and is able to solve additional types of problems."
