Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today in this session we are continuing with a general review of the following: polynomials, rational functions and the corresponding graphs, describing the features of the function and give a possible equation for that specific function, and solving equations and inequalities. The purpose of this review is to get ready for the student's final exam this Thursday. He successfully understood all the problems. I have assigned problems from his textbook and he also committed to finish the study guide in order to continue his training for the test. He is doing well. Overall the wins from this session are that he is more confident in solving these kinds of problems and he is getting ready for his final test."
"In my session today with this student, we prepared for his geometry final exam for the next day. He had a review packet--we worked on problems he hadn't completed yet, and then checked the answers on the answer key. We correctly answered all the questions we worked on together. He was able to identify his mistakes if I pointed them out. I feel that he can reason his way through problems given enough time. The final is 52 questions, multiple choice, so this is good in order to minimize math errors. I look forward to another strong semester!"
"We studied for the student's Geometry final. She had a review sheet, and we worked on the problems she forgot how to solve. She was able to answer the arc problems on her own. I also provided her with the equations for volume. She should do well on her test if she finishes the sheet and continues to study."
"The student and I covered a variety of first semester problems in preparation for his Geometry final. We covered angles of polygons, parallel and perpendicular lines, triangle theorems, and postulates, etc."
"The student reviewed the last portion of Chapters 4 and 5 in preparation for the midterm on tomorrow. The concepts reviewed included identifying types of triangles, recognizing congruence (SSS, SAS, ASA,AAS) and proof. We also reviewed perpendicular and angle bisectors, medians and midsegments of triangles."
"We covered identifying congruent angles formed by a transversal across two parallel lines, using the congruence postulates to equate two congruent angles and solve for X, proofs using congruent angles formed by a transversal of two parallel lines, and congruent triangles."
