Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We did part of the review packet for the student's final. She has really improved in her algebra skills. She was skilled at combining terms and solving for x. This was our last session together."
"We reviewed concepts in Pythagorean theorem, 45-45-90 and 30-60-90 triangles and the relationships of their sides. We applied these concepts to practice problems from the textbook. In Physics, we discussed the characteristics of vectors and scalars and the distinctions between them. We applied these concepts to the idea of distance versus displacement and practiced adding and subtracting vectors."
"The student was preparing for a test on geometric shapes and proportions. We reviewed the basic theorems and worked through a couple of proofs. She is understanding these concepts quite easily."
"The student and I reviewed reflection and rotation in preparation for her upcoming quiz. She had a little bit of trouble understanding the concept behind reflection, but we looked at it from a few different points of view, and she was able to grasp it by the end of the session. To ensure her understanding, we did several practice problems that used the same concepts in different ways. Great job!"
"The student has a 3 day Geometry final this week that I helped her review for. We worked through some of her review packet which she mostly excelled at. She needed some reminders as to what complementary and supplementary angles are and what the various triangle congruence theorems are. We also worked our way through a proof, so that she is familiar and comfortable with the steps. Finally, we worked through some of her Chemistry review extra credit, covering gases and inter-molecular forces."
"We reviewed for the final exam. I had the student memorize all the equations and he did a very good job when I quizzed him on it. I have seen a lot of improvement since the first time I saw the student. I think he is ready for the final exam."
