Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Since he has a test tomorrow, we reviewed the worksheets we went over last time which included slope intercept form, finding slope, theorems and postulates involving parallel and intersecting lines, and congruent/complementary/supplementary angles. The student had a good knowledge of it already and needed a few refreshers, but we went over those worksheets again and did extra problems as well. He should be ready for his test tomorrow."
"Specifically, we covered graphing functions, independent and dependent variables, and related material. He also needed some French help, so we worked a little on that as well, which was a lot of fun. I think he enjoyed the lesson - he especially enjoyed trying out pronouncing the French vocabulary."
"Student 1 and I went over his Physical Sciences homework. Student 2 and I read Harry Potter and he did exercises from his workbook. Student 3 and I reviewed absolute value problems and factoring for math. I quizzed Student 4 on last week's material (distance and midpoint formulas) and went over geometric rotation and reflection problems. They learned some tricks and tips for rotation using the protractor and compass."
"Student one - Went over her Pre-Calc test reworking problems she got wrong. Gets partial credit for reworked problems. Arithmetic and Geometric series. Student two - Geometry. Discussed angle pairs - corresponding, alt interior, alt exterior, same side interior, same side exterior and the converses."
"Student one and I worked on ratio-related problems on two worksheets she had. She has a good grasp of the mechanics of these problems, although I am a little worried about her conceptual understanding and her tendency to rush (and make little mistakes) once she "sees a light at the end of the tunnel". Overall she is an open-minded and enthusiastic student, she just needs practice! Student two's material was somewhat more challenging, but she was very communicative about what she had problems with, and we eventually got to a place where she could do the hardest problems by herself. "
"Student one is on pre-algebra, and he starting to solve single step equations. Student two is working on sequences, which is certainly a precursor to geometric sequences. Both boys seem confident in their school work so far! As always, there are some distractions in the home, but I can work through it!"
