Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"SRT, proofs, and logic statements were covered. A lot of it was review, so the student didn't have much trouble at all. He seemed engaged throughout and grasped the concepts thoroughly. He has a lot of resources from school, so there should be no difficulty. I have not seen any grades, but I'm sure he will do well."
"Student A and I worked on preparing for her final (GREAT JOB IN YOUR TEST!) while Student B and I focused on reviewing for her chemistry test. Both should feel very confident about finals season! I look forward to helping them organize for their math finals."
"The concepts covered today included symmetry, rigid motions, proofs, and parallel line rules. This session was prep towards the student's test on Friday. We used a test review as our guide. He fared well in everything but proofs. He has a slight anxiety when it comes to proofs, so we took our time on those questions. I expressed the importance of showing math work and stressed that the givens guide a proof. Overall, it was a good session in the end."
"The concepts covered with the student during this session included angles with parallel lines, vertical angles, isosceles triangles, triangle inequality theorem, relationships in a triangle, parallelograms, interior angles of parallelograms, special right triangles, trigonometric ratios in right triangles, and inverse trigonometric ratios in right triangles. He had a positive attitude toward the material covered. The student struggled most with fluent calculation and memorization of arithmetic facts; however, progress was noted with extra practice during the session."
"The concepts I covered with this student were the perpendicular bisector theorem, triangle midsegment theorem, and angle bisector theorem. She was then able to complete a homework review packet based on the concepts we covered."
"The concepts that we covered were foiling, using polynomial equations, manipulating foiling techniques, and problems solving polynomial equations. The student was struggling most with manipulating foiled equations. The student's attitude toward the material reviewed was focused and engaged. I taught multiplication properties to help the student become familiar with multiplication identity techniques."
