Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed the chapter material and practiced for his exam. Drawing pictures to match the theorems helped a little, but I asked him to make flashcards with diagrams, the written out theorem, the equation, and the equation in his own words. I also provided him with two sheets of algebra basics to help him reference until he has a better handle on the algebra."
"The student had a test the next day (Wednesday), so we reviewed the chapter on circles (Chapter 9) and answered problems from each section, as well as some chapter review questions. We also worked on a basic study sheet and I suggested extra things she should add and review for her later self-study. I think she's ready for her test!"
"The student and I went over similarity, congruency and justification from chapter 3 of his honors geometry book. We completed his homework and prepared for his test next week. He had a really good handle of the material!"
"We reviewed the new chapter that the student began in his geometry class which introduces trigonometry. As we completed each assignment problem, I walked him through how the previous chapter's material tied into trigonometry and introduced concepts he can look ahead to that will be coming. He was comfortable with the material assigned so we took time to move ahead to more advanced concepts from the ones in class in his text as well as material I brought today. He is demonstrating a good grasp of these fundamentals that will be critical to his success as his class dives deeper into trigonometry. He took a test on special triangles and similarity this week which we will look to review when he gets the results back."
"We reviewed the sine rule and cosine rule and worked on identities. We also practiced some problems to become familiar with the way it will appear on a test. I left some extra practice problems for the student to work."
"Revisited theorems regarding angles and arcs measures from chords, secants and tangents. Assigned a few more problems. Went over construction of parallels, perpendiculars, equal segments, and inscribed objects in circles using protractors and distances"
