Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Her class is studying the various of triangles so we spent both sessions making sure the difference between all 4 were clear. In order to calculate the centers in a coordinate plane we used the properties of lines and point slope form. Once we made a list of all the possibilities and what we need to calculate each one it started to come together. We also talked about the Pythagorean Theorem and how we can use it to determine whether or not a triangle is acute, obtuse or right just from the side lengths."
"Worked with the student on coordinate geometry with kites, rectangles, rhombuses, and squares. Works well with logic and proofs but needs to memorize midpoint, distance, and slope formulas with ease."
"With our last meeting, the student decided that he wanted to practice geometric forms one last time, citing his earlier difficulty understanding what to do with circles, triangles, and parallel lines. With that in mind, I brought some geometric formula sheets, as well as advanced problem sets and an actual geometry test, for us to go through together. The degree to which he has advanced is remarkable. He was able to complete the problems much faster and with a much higher degree of accuracy than when we first started."
"We covered chemistry and geometry (mostly geometry). In geometry, we worked on finding areas of irregular objects. She showed improvement when given an example and a little guided assistance."
"For this session, the student and I covered his first Geometry test. We looked at his entire test, which encompassed complementary and supplementary angles, midpoint, Pythagorean theorem, finding the ratios of midpoint expressions as well as finding measures of angles. At the end of the session, he mentioned that he fully understood the material and that there were more mental errors on his test than not understanding the material."
"We reviewed problems and concepts the student has learned since the beginning of the year to prep her for a quiz tomorrow. We went over distance formula, midpoint formula, and how to find the point of a certain fraction between two others. We went over two sided proofs, rules for intersection lines, and how to solve for x and y given some angles."
