Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed for his test on Friday for Pre-calculus, which was going to be on trig identities and their uses. So, we went over his study guide along with practice problems. He showed improved throughout the session, and he just needs to study further to have a good grasp of the concept."
"We went over his homework which was a new concept for him. We spent time finding two trig angles using periodic formulas. The student did really well with this. He definitely knew how to do the problems once we got through the first two. He had a few more problems left on his homework to finish but I'm confident he will be able to do those on his own."
"We went over 5 homework assignments. There are 5 additional assignments as well as a chapter test to do. We're working with exponential functions, logs (common and natural), and other equations. We will definitely get the student up to speed."
"We focused on practicing working with linear functions and systems of equations. We practiced creating a linear function or a system of linear functions from a word problem. We went through matching a graph to its equation by analyzing the slope and y-intercept. We talked about the different types of solutions for a system of linear equations and went through how to make two equations have infinite solutions. We also talked about different strategies to solve the different types of problems more efficiently. The student is doing much better finding the equation that models the information in a given word problem. She is also doing better rearranging an equation into a y-equals function in order to determine what the graph should look like."
"We went over the student's quiz from earlier in the week. We covered finding zeroes of higher order polynomial functions and sketching the graph to figure out the end behavior. She seemed to understand all of the concepts very well once we finished going over them."
"In the session today, we covered the law of sines and cosines. Overall, the student had a good basic understanding of the laws and just needed help with clarifying some of the images and deciding which law should be used. We also reviewed vectors. He had covered the topic before and just needed a refresher on some of the different formulas."
