Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We had a very productive session. The student had a test on Friday so we covered new material and she picked it up quite well. We covered sections 9.1, 9.2, and 9.3, highlighting some key points and strategies."
"The student has started on circles and their tangents. He said he understood the topic in class very well and we reviewed the homework in the first half hour. I had him do several more problems as he needs to practice his reasoning so he can figure out the problems more easily by himself. He was starting to get the hang of it by the end of the session, and I will be bringing extra practice next week for him to do."
"The student and I went over inequalities and indirect proofs. He understands the concepts and seems comfortable with the material. He needed a little bit of prompting, but once I gave him some direction he was able to do it on his own with no help. He showed me a recent test, in which he received a B. We went over his mistakes and he understood where his errors were. He is definitely gaining confidence with geometry, and understanding the logical analysis needed to approach problems."
"The student will have a test on Tuesday, and he needed my help with the review packet. He completed most of the tasks himself, and I checked them (everything was correct). A few remaining problems he completed during our session. The topic that he was reviewing was about comparing linear, quadratic and exponential functions (graphing, algebraic representations of the functions, as well as contextual understanding of the use of functions in word problems)."
"Tonight we covered many topics to help the student prepare for the test. We covered tetrahedrons, polygons, rhombus and kites. Also we covered circles, surface area of cones, classifying triangles. He is very knowledgeable, but once he remembered the formula, was able to solve the problem with ease. I might send another diagnostic test to see what gaps are left to be covered and I look forward to the next session."
"During this session, heat of fusion/ vaporization, specific heat, and other energy equations were reviewed by completing a worksheet. Additionally, temperature/ energy/ phase change curves were reviewed."
