Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today's session centered on trigonometric identities, relationship and angle theorems, and using them to prove relationships as well as solve for unknown angles."
"We reviewed the graphs of sine and cosine and continued with tan, cot, sec, and csc. The student can follow the patterns well."
"The student and I began working on logarithmic equations, and she was able to understand the basic concepts associated with them. Hopefully this will give her a head-start on the lessons this week concerning this topic."
"We worked on some problems involving determinants and Cramer's rule. The concepts are rather easy, but the computation by hand requires patience and care as there are many numbers to add and multiply together, and simple arithmetic mistakes can easily sneak in. We also revisited the Gaussian elimination method and did a problem on that. I also showed the student how to do reduced row echelon form and determinants on the graphing calculator."
"I covered with the student solving polynomial functions by long division and synthetic division. I also covered with him graphing polynomial, rational, and inequality functions. I also did a review packet based on the concepts covered in preparation for his upcoming test."
"Covered the algebra of exps, logs, and sinusoids, which the student will have to focus on for her final. Covered the basics of rational functions (definition, asymptotes, holes) and used that for a general discussion of end behavior. Covered inverse functions and how to create them from one-to-one functions. She seems to have graphing down. She's a great student, a hard worker, and will no doubt do excellently on her midterm."
