Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I reviewed reflection, transformation and dilation topics and got the student ready for the next test. She needed a little help with using a compass to construct new translation. The student was great to work with. I used examples, models and paper to explain concepts. The student got 18/20 from last test. No concerns at this time."
"In this session, the student and I went over angle addition, complementary angles, supplementary angles, adjacent angles, and linear angles. He was initially unsure about angle addition, but he was able to proceed after I explained the process. He was also unsure about adjacent angles, and linear angles, but he was able to identify both types of angles before the session was over. This was our first session, and we will continue to build his confidence as the semester progresses."
"In this tutoring session, we covered his last test that he did not perform well. We covered topics such as transformation, rotations and congruence. We talked about test taking strategies and becoming more familiar with vocabulary terms."
"In today's session, the student and I worked on using properties of isosceles triangles to determine angle and side length values. We went through both the vocabulary section and calculation based sections of her homework assignment. She was doing well with the vocab portion and determining congruent sides and angles. She is doing much better at applying straight angles to determine missing values, but is having some trouble when the summed angle value is not 180. We work through problems slowly to make sure she knows why adjacent angles sum to different totals depending on the diagram. She is doing well with this material and picked up the concepts very quickly. She is applying equilateral and isosceles identities to complete the exercises."
"It was great to meet the student today! She is very intelligent and hard-working. We went over her assignment for class, and she seemed to have a pretty good grasp on complementary and supplementary angles. Sometimes she just needed a push to get started on a problem but could then figure out the answer on her own. We both had trouble answering one question in particular, but I looked it over after our session and have sent her a full explanation. We will meet again to work on her next assignment. Looking forward to it!"
"Last week, the student and I went over conditional statements for geometry and talked about her test. Today, we studied for her biology test by going over neurotransmitters, brain structures and functions, and the eye. She just needs to review the diagrams of the brain, eye, and ear on her own, because it's mostly memorization."
