Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I worked with the student today on her first review for her final next week, covering material from her first semester. Together we reviewed the distance formula, natural log, formula for a circle, and slope-intercept equations. She really needed help utilizing her graphing calculator to its full potential, which I think was most beneficial for her this week. We are meeting again on Monday for her last review."
"The student and I worked through 3 worksheets he had covering trig/matrices/conics. He seemed to understand the concepts well."
"The student worked on her review for her final exam. She reviewed graphing rational functions, finding the vertical and horizontal asymptotes, identifying the end behavior and writing the domain in interval notation. She also reviewed graphing logarithmic and exponential functions as well as inequalities and systems of inequalities that included conics."
"The student and I finalized our review of Matrix Algebra and Polar Coordinates for his examination this Tuesday. We then moved on to counting problems involving permutations and combinations. He was very quick to pick up on both topics. Unfortunately, this is only a small amount of material that will make up his exam Friday. I hope that he will continue to study the remaining topics before our next meeting on Thursday. He is very apt to learn."
"The student has a final exam next Wednesday, so we began working on her final review for it. We worked on reviewing the first 3 pages, which mostly concentrated on solving trigonometric problems with her unit circle. We also worked on some vector problems."
"We started in on the student's first college math course (pre-calc). The first topic we covered was analytic and geometric analysis of trig functions. After covering some basic refresher material, we modeled the tide as a sine function in which the amplitude, period, and vertical and horizontal shifts had to be manipulated to accurately model the information given on the tide (high and low water levels and time and frequency of high tide). She has some homework problems to complete matching trig functions with a given parameter. Next week, we will model a race car on an oval track using the cosine function."
