Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered topics on finding angles and segment lengths of similar polygons. We also went over topics related to writing similarity statements to prepare for the student's test on Thursday. She is doing well; however, I do recommend that she continue to practice the review in full."
"We did a little bit of graphing related to the student's chemistry homework, some geometric proofs involving properties of quadrilaterals and triangles, and some algebra review. I think the biggest struggle for this lesson was that she had forgotten some quadrilateral and triangle properties she needed to do the proofs, with so many properties it might help for them to be reviewed regularly. I suggested making some flash cards and going over old postulates and properties regularly to keep them fresh."
"We did a review of circumcenters, orthocenters, centroids, and incenters of triangles for upcoming test next week. The student gets concepts but struggles with getting the right answer to the test question. The student has a good attitude and wants to learn. He has more to review for next Monday's tutoring session just before the test."
"We did a review of the solution of linear and simultaneous equations; congruent triangles; and more practice of problems relating to adjacent, vertical angles. We worked on solving equations. The student exhibited an excellent attitude throughout the session."
"We did a unit review today! We are over construction. The student had a test on that and she said it was the easiest thing she'd ever done. We did some midpoint theorem problems, some review of transversals and parallel lines, and more angle vocabulary review. She is excellent at seeing patterns, but vocab gives her a bit of trouble. We will continue to work on this next session."
"We did more review for the student's upcoming final in Geometry, especially proofs. We discussed strategies; the student is going to complete some proofs on her own. Next week we'll do a few mini-quizzes for practice under pressure. She is great at staying focused!"
