Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We met after a week and went over the student's homework on proving similar triangles using AA, SAS, and SSS. For the most part, she was comfortable with the material and we reviewed problems with proofs."
"Today we covered topics in both geometry and biology. In geometry, we did a review of the concepts we covered last session. We completed practice questions applying law of sine and cosine. The student was much more confident with the topics. In biology, we worked on reviewing GMO's and the process of genetically modifying organisms. We covered the objectives in his worksheet and we made sure that he understood the concepts involved in gel electrophoresis, PCR, restriction enzymes, etc."
"First the student and I worked on her biology. I was able to differentiate and explain to her how transcription and translation work. By the end of my explanation she was felt great about it because she understood the concept. Then we worked on parallelograms. She had troubles with the rules that explained what makes a parallelogram a parallelogram. She also had trouble with how to solve the problems due to how the wording was structured. She said that I was great help in breaking down how to solve the problems. I did not leave her with other study materials because she still has a sheet to complete. During the week she will be sending me some of her classwork in order for me to help her prepare for her exams."
"We did several practice problems in the online book. I also made up some problems to verify the student understood the material. Then we discussed half of next week's homework. She understands the material well."
"We covered congruent triangles. The student still struggles with balancing her meticulous work ethic and solving the problems in a timely manner. We discussed that she does not always complete quizzes or tests in the given time in class because she is so focused on making it look perfect rather than focusing on the process. Moving forward, I am going to provide additional materials to get her problem solving time reduced."
"Student 1 and I reviewed the angle relations as they pertain to proofs involving parallel lines. We then covered some new material that the teacher had not yet presented. Student 2 and I reviewed a homework assignment. He did not have any questions."
