Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During today's session, the student and I reviewed the points of concurrency in triangles. We completed the assignment and she seemed to grasp the material that was presented. She asked questions for clarification, and we both were pleased with outcome of the session."
"He and I reviewed similar angle proofs. He seemed to understand the material well and was able to explain what we were doing back to me. He just switched courses so there was not too much information about upcoming tests or quizzes but he will be saving his classwork so we can continue to review next week."
"He and I went through the first three sections of Chapter 3. He understood the first two sections but needs to watch out for sign errors. I showed him how to check his answers so that he knows whether he made a mistake. Then, we spent time with linear programming, which was more difficult."
"He and I worked on a review packet he printed out that his teacher gave electronically for an upcoming test as a reviewer. We did the circled items first because the packet indicated those were "test-like." We also did the non-circled ones, thus totaling around 35 exercises. He could also use extra practice on stating contrapositives or inverses of compound statements. He seemed engaged in learning and mastering the concepts though he also seems to be eager to "get it over with." I advised him to use symbols and diagrams when analyzing and solving most Geometry or Symbolic Logic exercises. Having the assigned textbook for his class is best. There are certain questions or problems that appear in his review worksheet which could be explained by said reference whenever both he and I are unclear about."
"He had an upcoming test on Monday on geometric constructions using a straightedge and compass. We worked through his homework together and briefly reviewed the fundamental concepts behind geometric terms to ensure he was ready."
"He had several homework problems in Chemistry that we worked through. We covered isotopes, identifying mixtures vs. pure substances, identifying significant figures, and sketching atoms in different states of matter. I also taught him how to write an abstract for a formal lab report. He stated that he did well on his periodic table quiz but did poorly on his mixture/solution quiz. He said that he did poorly because of the format of the questions, even though he said he felt comfortable with the material. He did not have any math homework due to his teacher being out for several days this week."
