Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student reviewed the geometric/arithmetic sequences, the recurring formula, infinite sum equation and the sum of "n" number of terms of both a geometric and arithmetic series. He also worked on homework that covered combinations and permutations in the probability chapter."
"We went through the review sheet for the upcoming test on vectors (dot products, parallel/ perpendicular vectors, airplane/ wind problems, etc.). The student was initially forgetful about the appropriate methods/ formulas, but after some rote practice, she quickly picked it back up and feels more confident for the upcoming test. I told her to review the formula sheet that I had written out for her in the past and to review the problems in the book the night before."
"We went over the student's study guide for her test on Wednesday. The test covers solving logarithmic and exponential equations, evaluating and plotting trig functions, and using inverse trig functions. For the most part, she seems pretty confident with exponential and logarithmic functions. She also has improved in her understanding of the trig problems."
"We practiced working with ratios and scatter plots. We use ratios to solve percentages and convert between different units such as money conversions and converting between SI and imperial units. We reviewed the properties of exponential graphs including how the graphs change when the base number is between zero and 1 and when it is greater than 1. We practiced sketching the line of best fit for a set of data point and worked with a line of best fit to predict future data. The student is doing well working with ratios as unit conversion and she is getting better working with percentages. She is also doing well analyzing scatter plots and working with curves of best fit."
"The student and I reviewed her trig homework. We scheduled to meet again on Saturday to finish the review of her homework."
"The student didn't attend class so she asked her teacher for practice problems. We went through the textbook questions and discussed why the trig functions had different ranges for our answer. She and I switch from inverse trig functions, and trig functions. She was able to start catching herself when her answer wasn't in range, which was truly a great sign. I asked her to redo a few questions for more practice."
