Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We worked to enrich the student's understanding of the Pythagorean Theorem, special right triangles, and geometric means. She seemed to have a good understanding of the content."
"This session with the student was focused on biology and geometry. In geometry we worked trigonometry, with basic sine, cosine and tangent relationships in a triangle and in biology, we worked on mitosis as well as some cellular respiration. I think she is pretty solid on the cellular respiration cycles. We did some additional practice worksheets and I think she is in good shape there. With geometry she definitely has the process done but sometimes mixes them up, but with a little practice I think she will be fine."
"The student & I went over a lesson from the book regarding the geometry and properties of solids, including prisms, spheres, pyramids, and cones. We completed several problems regarding the concepts in anticipation/preparation for homework assigned later in the week. We are awaiting results from her assessment last week."
"We covered what supplementary angles, complementary angles, vertical angles, and linear pairs are. We also discussed why the distance formula is not adequate to use when finding the distance between longitudinal and latitudinal points on the earth. The student informed me that her test grade on the previous lesson's subject matter rose from a 60 percent to an 89 percent which I would consider a big win!"
"Covered Chapter 4: Congruent Triangle; Sect. 4.1: Classifying Triangles; Sect. 4.2: Angles of Triangles; Sect. 4.3: Congruent Triangles; Did Sect. 4.1 homework; Did practice PSAT #1 - #5."
"Today we went over a study guide for the student's upcoming test this Thursday. Specifically, we went over the points within a triangle including the orthocenter, the incenter, the centroid and the circumcenter. We also went over the basic structures we can make with her compass. There was a lot of practice material her teacher gave her. I think these would be very beneficial if she took it seriously. She has a lot of "oh yeah that makes sense" moments and hopefully they'll become memory."
