Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During our session we went over volume of cones and pyramids. We reviewed her homework problems and went over terminology that will be covered in her next section, including chord and tangent. Then we covered the volume and surface area of spheres."
"For this session, we worked to prepare the student for her upcoming geometry test. The chapter that she is currently working on is in regards to the principles of triangles. We went through a practice test that her teacher had provided for her. We went back into her book and worked through the definition of a centroid and the properties of the lines involved. I provided her with every potential situation that could be tested with this concept and had her explain the strategy that she needed to employ to solve the problem. We then worked on distinguishing midsegments from triangle centroids and how to solve for midsegments. She remembered this material very well from our last session. With her test upcoming, I wanted her to work through more practice problems involving triangle centroids."
"The student had a test to review for during this session which covered area of circles, sectors of the circle, parallelograms, trapezoids and rhombus/kites. We first reviewed through all her notes and problems given during the lectures. Based on those problems, areas of sectors seemed to be what she needed to focus on so I made up a few other problems for her to work on. We also spent time going through her most recent test."
"The student got a 100% on his Punnett square quiz. I am very proud he stuck with the material, made the connections, and practiced. We also reviewed triangle geometry, parallel lines, and many angle types. Then, we connected the algebra and equations to the geometric concepts."
"The student has her Geometry exam tomorrow. Tonight, we spent the hour practicing proofs. At the beginning, I was leading most of the problems, but by the end, she was getting the hang of it and was able to work through them with just a little help. I am happy that she feels prepared enough with all the other material. Hopefully, our work with proofs tonight will help her be more thorough and specific during the exam tomorrow."
"Covered a multitude of subjects to prepare for the student's upcoming test tomorrow. Topics included similar triangles, corresponding angles, law of sines and cosines, area of polygons, and solving linear equations."
