Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I got through a whole online assignment for the course, in the process of which we went over the sum and difference arguments for the sine, cosine, and tangent. He took to the material fairly well. By tomorrow he should have finished memorizing the trig identities we went over on Sunday and the sum and difference arguments. He should also have completed another assignment by then so that we will be able to work through an online quiz."
"We worked on inverse trigonometric functions. I showed her how to solve inverse trig functions and how to graph inverse trig functions."
"During the session we worked on a pre-calculus assignment. It involved writing definitions of different trigonometric functions and highlighting their properties."
"We were studying for the upcoming exam on logarithmic and rational functions. Particularly, we determined asymptotes of rational functions and intercepts, then graphed the functions. Also we reviewed how to find the oblique asymptotes and determine the coordinates of the hole. Next we wrote an equation of rational function from the given information. After that we evaluated the logarithm, and solved exponential and logarithmic equations using properties of logarithm and laws of logarithms."
"Tonight we reviewed for the student's upcoming polynomial test. We discussed division, rational root theorem, complex roots, Descartes' rules of signs, and the upper and lower bounds theorem. I think he is well prepared for the test!"
"The student and I covered functions, increasing and decreasing, continuous and discontinuous, and root functions. She needed help with root functions, discontinuity, and recognizing even and odd functions. She's not at all timid when approaching the work. She understands what we do, and she asks questions when she needs to understand something better. We went over some ways to quickly determine limits, and whether they exist or not. We also looked at quickly determining the difference between even and odd functions. We also went over a review for her upcoming test."
