Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I focused on how to prove parallel lines using converse theorems for alt int, alt ext, corr, and same-side interior angles. We rewrote the theorems and applied them to numerous problems in order to solidify the concepts for her. We also worked on proofs, which was a completely new concept. I wanted her to have a little background knowledge going into her next geometry class."
"The student and I primarily focused on relationships between lines, such as intersecting/parallel/skew lines, as well as transversals. Once we got her fully up-to-speed on the Geometry lessons currently available to her, we discussed her improved grades lately and strategies to study for Latin."
"The student and I reviewed angles. It started with the basic terms in which she could see the difference between an acute and obtuse angle. With more and more practice, she could work with supplementary angles and complementary angles. By the end of the session, she was working with these angles and algebraic expressions. She was excited to be able to grasp it."
"The student and I reviewed classifying triangles by their sides and angles. I gave him some practice problems, and he was able to classify all the triangles by their sides and angles. I looked through his binder at his Geometry work. I went over a few of the concepts he is having problems with. I will create some review sheets for him for next session so that we can review concepts he has not mastered. His grade in the class is C. The goal is to get to a B by the end of the quarter."
"The student and I reviewed for her Geometry quiz tomorrow. We went over three problems from her review sheet - a geometry proof, a transversal plane question, and a problem in which you needed to find the measure of the angles by means of geometry definitions, inferences and solving an algebra equation. The student had a lot of background knowledge and just needed some help connecting the dots. She said that she understood each problem well after we were done reviewing together."
"The student and I reviewed for the chemistry exam on Wednesday by covering atomic theory and getting a lot more practice on nuclear reactions and half-lives. Very good progress was made, and it seems that she definitely experienced 'light-bulb' moments when it all just started making sense."
