Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we went over chapter 3 in preparation for the student's test on Monday. This included concepts such as parallel lines, perpendicular lines, transversal, angle pairs and their postulates, skew lines, constructions, and translations. He has a solid understanding of the material, and I advised him to review the angle postulates and converses, just to have complete mastery."
"Today we worked through the student's retake packet for her test on Friday. She did good with most of it, but I think she needs a little more help setting up the problems, so we are going to work on that tomorrow with some additional practice."
"Today, he and I talked about the work I had given him to do over the weekend. After working all the problems that he had questions about, he took a four question quiz on problems similar to those he had practiced. We talked through the quiz when he was done and he rated himself on his skill with each type of problem. Then, I gave him my ratings and we discussed how we can use assessments like these to get a better idea of where he is at with each concept he learns. At the end of the session, we planned out how he is going to use his evenings this week to review and stay ahead of his work."
"Today, I covered inductive and proofs of geometry. I gave the student examples to understand the concepts. Then, we covered areas of triangles, circles, and squares. I gave him a mnemonic and some visuals for him to remember the areas easily. Lastly, we reviewed angle relationships, and I helped him remember some of the key terms."
"Today, I went over the student's recent tests and quizzes to make sure he understand his mistakes and how to fix them. Although not perfect, he seems to be understanding most of the concepts that he has been taught in class. His homework seems to be going over very basic concepts of congruence and angle sums of different shapes. He then asked me to help him with his chemistry homework. I explained how to solve problems concerning phase transitions and solubility."
"Today, she and I started with a review of complementary and supplementary angles. After looking over a few of her practice problems, we moved onto our main topic of the day: transversals and angle relationships. She did a good job paying attention and seemed to understand most of the information. We did have time to practice identifying transversals and each type of angle relationship (alternate interior, alternate exterior, corresponding, as well as vertical angles). We finished going over the lesson in her newer textbook as well as some of the information in her older textbook. I think using both texts will be useful as it will give slightly different perspectives. All in all, today was very productive. I ended the session by assigning a few worksheets which will test her understanding of today's lessons."
