Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I covered early concepts of Geometry that she will see this year such as the triangle sum theorem and the exterior angle theorem. We finished the session by covering SAT vocabulary."
"Today we focused solely on geometry. The student had finished all of the homework from chapters 2 and 3, so I went through some of the questions that he had difficulty with. He did everything correctly and needed very little help from me. We then took quizzes pertaining to each section of the material from the chapter to solidify his grasp of the concepts. He consistently got 80% on all of the quizzes, which is very solid. Tomorrow we will finish these quizzes and start on chapter 4."
"Today we covered foundations of geometry, including using formulas in geometry. We also discussed transformations in the coordinate plane and reviewed homework. Next we covered geometric reasoning, using deductive reasoning to make conjectures, conditional statements, using deductive reasoning to verify conjectures, biconditional statements and definitions."
"The student and I covered the special side length relations for 45-45-90 and 30-60-90 right triangles. We worked on determining unknown side lengths based on these special relations and given information. I think she is doing well with differentiating between the different side lengths of triangles (base, height, hypotenuse) and with general radical expressions. She has a great attitude. I would suggest continuing to practice these relationships to be sure to remember the specific side length relations."
"We reviewed the last test that the student had. He was able to identify mistakes he had made and in most cases work through to the correct answer. In addition, I made worksheets explaining the five properties of congruence. Reviewing that material was helpful. Finally, he worked on today's homework which consisted of solving for angles in a triangle and work with quadrilaterals including parallelograms, rhombuses, rectangles, and irregular shapes. Overall, this was his strongest performance. Good progress!"
"We covered trigonometry, root functions, square roots, and did some practice problems. We talked about special right triangles. We also went over some of what was on the test that the student had today and talked about what he felt confident with and what he needed help with."
