Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student is taking 2 math classes right now, so today we worked on Math B as opposed to Math A covered in our last session. We covered two sections in our session. The first of which was named "Pairs of Angles," which included topics such as vertical angles, adjacent angles, supplementary and complementary angles. He then took a quiz online and he scored a 100. The next section we began covered right angles and perpendicular bisectors. Again, he worked through this with no problems, and took another quiz, which he made a 100 on."
"Reviewed for upcoming geometry test on chapter 7. Completed chapter 7 extra practice problems in the back of the book. The student seems extremely prepared for this test."
"Worked on areas and volumes of prisms, cones, pyramids, and spherical objects. The student's showing considerable improvement. I think he just needs to sit down and do his work (which he is now)."
"This session focused on reviewing the results of the exam results received. The material covered included evaluating area, distance, midpoint, and line segment and angle relationships. The student seemed to have a grasp on the concepts and the results of the exam appear to be due primarily to some testing anxiety. To help alleviate this potential stress in the future, we will plan on setting up a practice exam to help him establish some additional comfort with the material. Additional review of the exam will be provided later this week."
"Today's session was spent mostly on reviewing and applying definitions, postulates, and theorems. Specifically, we reviewed postulates and theorems that apply when two parallel lines are intersected by a transversal (e.g., corresponding angles, alternate exterior/interior angles, consecutive angles, etc.). We also learned about Non-Euclidean or spherical geometry, which has different rules than Euclidean geometry that uses planes. We worked together on applying the concepts to homework problems. The student was clearly invested in her studies and her strengths are her commitment to passing Geometry and willingness to learn. She would benefit from reviewing postulates and theorems and committing them to memory as each new concept will build on the last. This is especially important as she has an upcoming test. The next session is scheduled for Tuesday."
"The student and I reviewed an assignment from her online Algebra class. The assignment involved researching a genetic disease and following up with probability calculations. We ended the session by going over her corrections to the most recent graded Geometry test. Her algebra skills were evident, with very few errors made. I look forward to working with her."
