Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I looked through the start of his final exam review guide. We covered finding areas of compound shapes and three dimensional figures in addition to triangle concepts."
"Today we covered the topics from 1.9. The student grasped the concepts easily and was able to work through the practice problems. We then did a practice exam. He answered 12 out 15 questions correctly and did most of the test on his own. The 3 that he got incorrect, he was able to do again with some prompts from me. I left the student with the practice problems and vocabulary from sections 1.5, 1.6, 1.8, and 1.9 to do over the weekend. I will grade each of the assignments to make sure he understands the concepts thoroughly and will provide any feedback and assistance on the topics he may be having trouble with. So far, I am very pleased at the progress the student has made."
"We went over formulas for surface area & volume of solids, trig & special triangles, & circles: angles, arcs, & chords."
"We went through the student's biology exams, and I asked different questions to make sure he still remembers the concepts. Then, I assigned him some study materials from the book, and I asked him to review them to make him prepare for the exam. He is doing well, and he needs to review the material a little bit."
"The student and I worked on using algebraic expressions within geometric problems to solve for variables. From the start of the session, she entirely understood the topics and the approach that she needed to take. We used our normal approach, which involves understanding what is given and the layout of the geometric scenario. As we worked through more and more problems, she made fewer and fewer mistakes and was able to complete problems with less prompting. Her confidence also clearly increased throughout the duration of the session. Her test is tomorrow, and this will be an indicator of her progress. The more she manages her tendency to assume and maintains her confidence, the better she will perform. She is doing well overall in the subject."
"The student and I worked on questions on the topic of circles involving the calculation of arc lengths and areas "cut out" by a central angle. This is done by using a proportion comparing the angle measurement with the full 360 degrees, and the area or length "cut out" with the entire area or perimeter of the circle, respectively. We also reviewed the previous circle topics from weeks prior."
