Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Tonight, the student and I focused on a review packet for the test he has tomorrow, addressing rational expressions and equations. He was rusty with the major concepts involved here, but he picked them back up fairly smoothly with demonstrations."
"We completely finished going over the material in the boys' geometry book during this session. The boys exceeded my expectations for how well they did! Since we only have a few sessions left until school starts, we are just going to continue working through EOC geometry exams to give the boys as much preparation as possible for the upcoming school year."
"We concluded triangles today and began working with the terms regular polygons. This included such things as pentagons and hexagons. We worked through problems regarding these polygons. The student is doing amazing in math, as expected."
"We continued in our study of chemistry. Today's focus was on units and conversions using the bridge method. She excelled using this method. She is progressing well and I think our lessons will help her start off her chemistry class with an advantage."
"We continued learning how to solve for the area of regular polygons, circles, arc lengths, and sector areas. I had the student derive the formulas for solving areas for polygons. I also had him solve for problems that ask for the area of only a portion of a sector area. I gave him problems to practice over the rest of the weekend."
"We continued our study of slope, looking at parallel and perpendicular lines. We then moved on to the distance formula, where we reviewed how to simplify square roots in case our distance formula didn't end up having a perfect square."
