Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I continued reviewing for her SSAT. She got a 1500 on her latest practice test, which is an amazing score. She is very calm and confident about taking the test next week. We also reviewed her class work which was about parallel and perpendicular lines."
"The student and I covered material which will be on this week's quiz as well as completed her homework. The material was over using Theorems for solving angle congruence using parallel lines with a transversal line. The exercises today utilized solving for angles with unknown variables. This was a new concept for the student since our last meeting. She was a little confused at the beginning of our session, but after working through some problems she was able to confidently complete her homework. I suggested that she work a few extra problems from the review, chapter test and the extra practice problems in her text book. I am happy to report that she received a grade of 94 on her last quiz!"
"The student and I covered multiple topics in algebra. We also covered some chemistry. In algebra, he did some of the homework that was due, but he also did as many exercises as possible on functions. In chemistry, the focus was on mixtures, homogeneous and heterogeneous, and understanding how the chemical world around is influenced by chemical reactions. "
"The student and I covered parallel line postulates and conditional statements (specifically converse statements). He definitely understands the concepts!!"
"The student and I covered parallel lines, skew lines, parallel planes, transversal, alternate interior angles, same-side interior angles, corresponding angles, and alternate exterior angles. She was eager to study. I showed her how to approach word questions and how to divide the problem into smaller problems that were easy to solve. We did practices together during the session."
"The student and I covered properties and proofs relating to lines and angles. We used basic laws to explain each step of the problem. He was confident in the entire section, but occasionally began guessing without critical thought. I showed him other ways to apply the proofs he was using until he grasped why they made sense in the problem's specific instance. I did not see any scores, but he was pleased with his performance on the history test we covered last week. This session went excellently."
