Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today, we went over problems on the student's geometry test review. We worked through how to determine the interior angles of a triangle and other polygons, and we briefly worked on forming a geometric proof. She is a very attentive student and did a good job applying skills learned during one problem to other problems. She would benefit from a quick review of theorems listed in her book or class notes to refresh her memory, and I would recommend that she work through the rest of the problems on her review sheet before her test."
"Tonight we worked through and completed the student's review for her test tomorrow. She was able to complete just about every problem on her own without me, which has been becoming more and more common throughout this unit of geometry. She recently took a quiz and scored a B, which for her, was far better than what grades she had been making on quizzes. She will go over her notes and study guide again this evening in preparation for her test tomorrow, and I feel confident she will do remarkably, considering her progress over the last few weeks."
"Tonight, we went over current assignments in most of the student's subjects, touching upon his reading in English and keeping up to date with his History essay due next week. We also spent time on his current Geometry assignment, working on angle bisectors."
"Tonight, we worked on special triangles and the equations that go with them. We also did a little work with the Pythagorean theorem. The student did well with the theorem."
"Topics covered today included radicals (multiplying dividing adding and subtracting), Pythagorean Theorem, and other triangle rules and laws. The student struggles most with some more advanced division of radicals. He was very positive about his outlook on the material and confident in the material he knew. Some strategies for radical multiplication and division included first breaking the radical down into its simplest parts. No material was left for him to practice as his test on the material was the next morning. The student is now more confidant in his ability to handle all different types or radical operations."
"Tuesday night the student and I went over chapter 5 in her geometry, and she was able to gain a better understanding of finding the circumcenter, incenter, centroid and orthocenter. On Wednesday night, we began making her geometry note card, and briefly looked at the biology slides to prepare for our session Saturday."
