Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today, the student and I worked on problems concerning kites and trapezoids. She was very comfortable with the problems we looked over. In many cases, the only assistance I had to offer was confirming that the steps she took were correct."
"Today, the student and I worked on trigonometry with right triangles and perimeter of inscribed polygons and circle circumference. She needed help with memorization of arithmetic facts, and had a positive attitude toward the material reviewed. Progress was noted with extra practice during the session."
"Today, the student and I worked with parallel lines and the theorems that apply to transverses. She did not struggle with the material and had a positive attitude throughout the session. I included strategies to simplify complex solutions. I look forward to our next session."
"Today, the student worked on the reviews provided by her teacher and myself. We covered all the similarity transformations that she will be tested on tomorrow. She did a really great job; she has a strong understanding of the material, and I expect that she will do really well on her test!"
"Today, we continued her review. This time we did an extra practice review from the regular Geometry class instead of the student's honors class. This was helpful because it showed some areas that she needed basic skills reinforcement. She is very involved and enthusiastic. We discussed her wanting to get done quickly, and sometimes giving fast answers without thinking it through or checking her ideas. I gave her some tips on how to focus by writing a formula or key words down before solving problems, especially those she frequently makes errors on. She recognized her issues and was very appreciative of the discussions and the tips. Her final is this Tuesday and she said she felt ready."
"Today, we covered angle bisectors and perpendicular bisectors of triangles. The student was able to complete his entire lesson correctly with little guidance. I am very proud of his work ethic to stay alert during the session and complete his work accurately."
