Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"He just had a test, so his teacher provided him with a plethora of worksheets covering the next unit, trigonometry. We covered right triangle trig problems. This was all review from previous math classes, and he had no trouble with that. After that, we got into angles as positive and negative rotations around the origin, coterminal angles, and reference angles. This was new material for him, but he caught on very quickly."
"We went through her homework on matrices. We talked about the method to multiplying matrices, and she got much more confident and accurate. We then looked ahead at finding inverse matrices and talked about how to find them. Then we went through her homework on taking integrals. She often makes problems interpreting graphs more difficult than they need to be, but she does very well finding integrals of expressions."
"We continued from last week, applying integration to problems of volume, work, and hydrostatic pressure. The student has a positive attitude toward the subject. We will continue on Monday to prepare for his exam on Tuesday."
"The student and I practiced mean, median, mode, and range in-depth. He is grasping the concepts very well and was able to do it without rearranging any numbers! I also posed him a challenging question: find a group of numbers in which the mean, median, mode, and range are all the same. The student was able to come up with an answer! It was a good session."
"We reviewed sequences and series. We did a number of problems that covered discovering predictable changes in sequences and how to write them recursively or explicitly. We also briefly reviewed trig and triangles. We did problems where we were given the sine of an angle in a triangle and had to find the various sides and angles of that triangle, as well as problems that involved finding the area of a triangle when given certain information."
"During this session, the student completed his math homework. We then reviewed basic 5th and 6th grade math concepts in order to help the student prepare for his upcoming math exam."
