Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I helped explain Trigonometric proofs. I explained my method for proving trigonometric equations and gave him some tips to help him improve his methods of proving equations. The student has a test this week and we reviewed sample problems from his textbook."
"With Test 4 happening tomorrow, today the student took a practice test I had written under mock test conditions. Afterward he went through his answers, making note of the questions he struggled with the most. He did well, only really stumbling with about 2 problems with other minor errors. We spent time going through the proper method for the problems he struggled with and now he will have the opportunity before the test to try those problems again and practice a little more."
"Went over unit circle and the definitions of cosine sine and tangent. From there looked at her physics homework that was using the same type of math we discussed. After that she wanted to go over rules of exponents and logs so a rule sheet was created for her to go back and reference."
"Today we covered introductions and establishing a good groundwork for the rest of our sessions. We also went over some of the problems that the student was having trouble with on the worksheets that were provided in class. These problems were concerning permutations, combinations, and making use of Pascal's triangle and the different formulas for different cases. The student was not having much trouble with the topic and most of the work was already complete, but we will be doing more in future sessions when the work is to be completed and he has not yet received adequate explanation on the material at hand."
"Today, we went over the entirety of the student's study guide, including parametric equations, solving triangles, and everything relating to trigonometric identities. We kept going until she felt confident in her ability to do well on the exam."
"The student is focused on pre-calculus again and has an upcoming test dealing with trig identities, exponential with fractions analysis, limits of functions, and limits of piecewise functions. We repeatedly went over limits concepts, reiterating a limit as x approaches a certain point (from both sides, left and right) may be different from the function's value at that point. She also gained more clarity on how to manipulate expressions dealing with fractions and exponents. Her focused and positive attitude was present in our session."
