Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We completed the Final Exam review. We worked on problems from sections of two books recommended by the teacher. The Final is Thursday."
"We reviewed Chapter 9 today. The student understands the basics, so we worked on combining his knowledge to solve more-challenging problems. We will continue to focus on difficult problems as we review the rest of the chapters."
"The student has about a week and a half before her final, so we set up a study schedule for the next 10 days. We went over her homework, which involved similar right triangles. Similar triangles come up a lot in geometry problems, so I'm trying to get her comfortable with identifying them and properly setting up proportions to find line-segment lengths. We then practiced with circle-secant line problems. It took her a while to solve some of the trickier problems, but she didn't make any mistakes and eventually found the solutions. I left homework problems for her to do on her own and assigned her practice problems from other sources. I'll be working with her a lot the next few days to help her create study materials and review for the final."
"Today was a review day! The student and I discussed his exam and looked over his math webpage on Google Classroom. We reviewed angles related to trapezoids and midsegments with variables. We completed several practice problems. I taught him how to solve for a quadratic equation and related that back to midsegments on a trapezoid."
"The student and I did a final review for his upcoming test before his spring break. He has been doing really well in this chapter on circles and segments. We touched upon each topic, focusing on those in which he had previously struggled to make sure he was well prepared."
"The student had already done most of her exam prep packet, so we went over whatever questions she had left to do. She seems to be grasping the concepts very well! I will put together some questions that cover the material that will be covered on her test next week so that we can work on them together and see if she needs any last-minute help with anything in particular."
