Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed and I explained topics on the student's homework. Topics included triangles and their properties, such as size of angles and corresponding sides. We reviewed the quadratic formula and distance formula. Other topics reviewed were complementary and supplementary angles and factoring quadratics."
"We reviewed angle relationships, transversals, and parallel lines. The student still has a hard time remembering these. We're also still doing two-column proofs, which she does pretty well at! In newer stuff, we're doing triangle congruency, which she mainly gets but doesn't really like. She's warming up to it, though! We'll have a lot of tests to make up in the new year, so we are tutoring this weekend, even though she's on break."
"We reviewed bisector, perpendicular lines, parallel lines, and internal angles of polygons. The student had problems with word problems, but we are working on improving his skills in solving them. He was paying attention, and he was able to comprehend the materials. We are still reviewing and practicing for his final exam."
"We reviewed central angles, inscribed angles, inscribed angles in a quadrilateral, circumscribed angles, secant lines and secant segments, intercepted arcs, and chord segments. The student had a positive attitude toward the material reviewed, and mildly struggled with number sense, fluent calculation, and memorization of arithmetic facts. Progress was noted with the extra practice during the session."
"We reviewed concepts from a recent quiz, as well as current homework assignments. Several foundational skills (isosceles, properties of quadrilaterals, perpendicularity, vertical angles, corresponding parts) need further review before the final. Great initiative was shown by the student."
"We reviewed conjectures, postulates, biconditional statements, and angle theorems for the student's quiz. For problems dealing with the angle theorems, he needs to analyze the problem first before trying to solve each angle. When he makes one mistake, it affects the rest of his answers."
