Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student had a test in geometry coming up. We went through an entire practice quiz together. She didn't really have any trouble with it, so we ended by shoring up a bit of chemistry."
"In this session, I saw a quiz on transformations where the student received a 42/44. We discussed exterior angles, how to calculate their sums and how they relate to sides. The student solved problems to help him understand these relationships."
"We continued to review for his upcoming test. We worked through most of his review packet which stressed similar triangles. We will finish his review packet and do a brief review of everything on Tuesday."
"We continued the review sessions for finals. I summarized all the theorems for the student and printed them out. Our approach is to answer the cumulative chapter problems. I will give some problems to the student to work on during his self-review times."
"Topics covered: copying angles & segments, bisecting angles & segments, constructing parallel & perpendicular lines, & constructing polygons in circles. The student is very bright."
"We covered similar triangles and setting up proportions. The student did a lot better when she began to take her time and draw out each triangle for each problem. She has a test tomorrow and she will do great."
"The student and I reviewed in preparation for her upcoming final. Topics covered included a summary of the class over the past few months, such as geometric proofs, types of triangles, and solving geometric equations for an unknown variable."
"The student and I made progress with the subtraction and addition of polynomials. I think he is catching on very quickly. I will get him extra material before his quiz Thursday."
"We continued to review her 1st semester comprehensive review packet. We went over problems she's been struggling with ("crook" problems, constructing various geometric figures, finding missing angles, etc.)."
"Today we went over a review worksheet for a Geometry test for Friday. The test will be over graphing, slopes and intercepts. He did very well. He got his grade back from his Chemistry test, and he improved to 85%."
"The student and I went over drawing lines from an equation, and we also discussed how to derive point slope form and slope intercept form from a variety of given information from two points, a point and a slope, a parallel line, etc."
"The student and I went over chapter 5 inequalities in triangles detail by detail. We more specifically focused on the areas that he was struggling with the most - indirect proofs and medians, altitudes, bisectors, etc."
