Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on her new topics in geometry (dilations) and reviewed other forms of image transformation. She expressed confusion in the beginning, but was doing better by the end of the session. We also went over Lewis dot structures in preparation for her chemistry quiz next week. I would recommend extra practice in both areas, but she is doing better now than she was. Good job!!"
"We covered transformations and rotations for the student's geometry class. He first did his homework, then I pulled up some practice problems and had him work through those. We also talked about which teachers he needs to talk to at school about his grades and late assignments. We went over some of the biological concepts he learned in class today near the end."
"After the student had finished his homework, I created a handful more problems for him to complete to make sure he had all of the concepts down. He is a very easy student to tutor since he seems eager to learn the material!"
"The student sent me 3 Geometry sheets, two notes and a homework. We talked through all of this and I quizzed him on certain questions. He seemed to understand the material well when we were done, and this is what is on his next exam. He now knows the main characteristics of parallelograms, rhombuses, squares, and rectangles. Then we talked about all his classes and grades. He feels confident in bio and German. However, he is struggling in lit. We talked about asking the teacher for a rewrite and submitting his missing assignment this weekend. Then we talked about getting an A on the next history project (which he emailed me) and then also achieving a perfect on the next outline. We then talked about what we would talk about Tuesday. I will go over his lit, history and geometry work. I encouraged him to work hard, get A's before the end of the semester, and keep his goals in mind. I know he can bring up his lit grade, history and geometry!"
"We continued reviewing for the assessment exam. We went over problems involving circles; circles with secants, tangents, chords, diameters, etc. For the last half hour we went over proofs. Given two triangles, write the proof that the two lines on the top and bottom are parallel after proving the two triangles are congruent."
"During this session we worked on writing proofs in different formats including flowchart and paragraph. We practiced methods of figuring out how to prove certain congruences and the symbols to use to refer to different parts of a diagram."
