Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed for the test on corresponding angles, angle measurements, same-side interior/exterior angles, parallel lines, perpendicular lines, and graphing the equations. Overall, things went well, and she got a better understanding of the concepts as we reviewed."
"The student has a geometry test (or the second half of it), so she wanted to go over certain concepts that she might see on the test. We did some geometry problems that she brought home (proofs), and then we did some practice tests online. I think it would benefit her to look at each problem and decide how she wants to structure her proof. Proofs are especially flexible because there are many possible ways to arrive at the correct answer. Once she's taken her test, we'll see how well our sessions prepared her."
"We worked on proofs involving triangle congruence doing two worksheets which had about 10 proofs altogether. Then we worked on a practice problem set of 36 different proofs filling in the various statements and reasons in two-columned proofs."
"We covered Trig functions with right triangles. The student struggled a bit with memorization of some of the formulas in SOHCAHTOA. She has a positive attitude and willingness to learn. I suggested use of the conversion factor for radians and degrees, graphing calculator, and flashcards for remembering triangle properties. I asked her to practice with flashcards to build her memorization skills."
"We focused on parallelograms for an upcoming test the student has in the subject. We discussed properties of parallelograms, angle theorems and postulates, and single variable algebra equations. She understands geometric reasoning and logic but mentioned that she struggled in Algebra last year. I suggested that she work on the rest of her study packet from the other teacher's website and go through questions in the chapter subsections that she is covering for extra practice."
"I worked with the student on studying for his upcoming test on triangle relationships. He improved greatly on his memorization of circumcenter, orthocenter, incenter, and centroid. He also understands how to achieve certain measurements given the coordinates or lengths of the circle and triangle relationships. He also performed well in Chemistry with naming compounds. We also covered ionic vs. covalent compounds, and he gets the idea easily."
