Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I prepared for his upcoming quiz on the unit circle and basic trigonometry. We went over the several worksheets that were assigned by his professor to complete in order to prepare for the quiz and I delved into the topics deeper where it was necessary to learn the concepts."
"To begin preparing for the student's semester final, we reviewed the first three units of the semester, all of the material leading up to our first sessions together. She was still apprehensive about piecewise functions, but I came up with some examples today that helped alleviate her concerns."
"We did a pre-calculus review covering: degree-minute-second notation, trigonometric function values, reference angles, laws of exponents, logarithms, transformations of y=f(x), compound interest, graphing trigonometric functions, synthetic division, and horizontal and vertical asymptotes."
"We covered trigonometric relationships and how to apply the unit circle to solve trigonometric problems. The student struggled with the concepts at first, but after I explained to her that angles in the second, third and fourth quadrants were comparable to angles in the first quadrant, she seemed to understand the material better."
"The student and I finished the first study guide for his final. We began another one, which was more comprehensive than the first. We will meet again tomorrow for the last session before his final."
"The student and I covered logs and their properties. The worksheet we went through indicated that she had trouble with multiplication and division, as well as change of base. After we worked through a few problems, she seemed confident and grasped the concepts. I provided her with a few online resources for additional log practice problems, particularly related to change of base."
