Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I continued to work on Module 6. We made flashcards to help her study the vocabulary over Thanksgiving break. She does not have math homework over the break, so she has plenty of time to study."
"The student and I continued working on the suggested topics from Part A of his math course. We first reviewed the material we went over last week, including some trig functions and square roots, and with a little help, the student was able to remember it pretty quickly. Then we went over the other "old" topics, including quadratic equations, similar triangles, and systems of equations. he was so good at the systems that I actually challenged him with a more complicated problem that he probably won't have to know how to do for this class, and while he wasn't able to completely solve it by himself, he had the right idea from the beginning. Next time we'll probably start covering the "new" subjects to prepare him for Part B of the course."
"The student and I covered a large set of problems that will be included on the ACT. She took a diagnostic test. She is really dedicated to studying for the test, and putting the work in to increase her score. I'm excited to put together a program and really get working on it."
"The student and I covered a number of fundamental concepts pertaining to finding similar triangles. Specifically, we covered determining any values of angles and side lengths first. From there, she had to draw or visualize the two separate triangles. After that, she used proportionality to determine if side lengths are equal, or sameness if angle values are equal. I reminded her to take her time, working through the easiest problems first, and then writing down as much as she can to help her with the tougher problems. She'll do great!"
"The student and I covered a variety of problems using the isosceles triangle theorem. He needed help at first knowing which sides corresponded to which angle, and as the lesson progressed, he got the hang of it. He's motivated to learn, and puts in a lot of effort on each problem."
"The student and I covered a worksheet that he is redoing to ensure he understands the concepts. We went over some strategies and skills to refresh him on adding/multiplying and dividing fractions. He picked up the concepts quickly, and I think he now understands the material. I left him with the worksheet to complete."
