Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I tutored the student on working with the properties of roots of polynomials. He understands most of the concepts, and I was able to briefly review a problem about finding the properties of roots by manipulating the equation to fit with properties of polynomials."
"We reviewed solving trigonometric equations using Pythagorean identities, verifying trig identities, simplifying trig expressions using cofunction identities, and the sum and difference formulas. The student understood the material very well after I explained it to her."
"Today we had a tutoring session over the phone. He had taken a practice test, so we went through the problems that had been difficult for him. In general, he said that he got the correct answers on most of the problems. We will talk again tomorrow. And in preparation, he will take another test as well as retake the test we went over today."
"We began today's session by going over the student's work on his takehome exam. I wanted to confirm that he was working out solutions for problems that stumped him. After math, we worked on physics. We made a schedule of how we were going to approach the 3 chapters (2 tests). We then spent the final 20 minutes of the session working on practice problems in chapter 7, angular velocity."
"The student and I worked on his homework and then reviewed for a quiz he was taking. We worked on polar and rectangular forms. It was a slow start but once we went over it the homework was pretty easy for him."
"The student and I reviewed polar coordinates and complex numbers in preparation for his upcoming exam. We reviewed the origin of formulas used to express polar coordinates for x and y coordinates. We then used these formulas to convert between Cartesian and polar coordinates. Subsequently, we covered the basics of complex numbers and discussed how to convert them to their polar equivalents. We completed most of the problems from his sample exam and discussed the topics of his upcoming final exam."
"We covered the properties of rational polynomials. We looked at vertical asymptotes, removable discontinuities, horizontal asymptotes and domains. This led into a refresher on limits and what they mean. We then briefly touched on increasing and decreasing intervals and looked at even and odd functions. I left the student with 6 practice problems to try. He does seem to be asking more questions and really getting all the details."
"This was the first session with the student. It appears that he has done very well in previous courses. We went over his last tests and the homework for a new module."
"We specifically went over her review sheet for the quiz on polar coordinates. The included (finding equivalent polar coordinates, converting from rectangular to polar coordinates, etc.). The student is doing a great job answering the questions. Overall, the session was excellent."
"We returned to using properties of exponents and logarithms to solve equations. This time the student caught on, and exhibited a much clearer understanding. We then moved on to solving systems of linear equations using substitution and elimination. At first she claimed to not remembering how to do this, but after I got her started she was breezing through the problems. We finished with an introduction to equations for circles. I presented a model evoking the Pythagorean theorem in the XY plane. She caught on quickly, and demonstrated a strong grasp of this concept."
"We continued working with polynomials, first by reviewing factoring of quadratics and then moving on to cubics and higher degree ones. We covered a few special cases of cubic factoring (grouping, sum/difference of cubes, etc.), then we moved onto the more general case and I taught the student to find roots by plugging in x values and solving for y. Then I taught him how to carry out the long division algorithm in order to reduce polynomials until they got down to a quadratic."
"The student and I worked more on logarithms, particularly on solving exponential equations with logarithms. He had another worksheet on these concepts, so we worked on that. He also had homework from this session, and we worked on that, as well. There are no more concerns from this session."
