Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We will review the test the student took after he talks to his teacher and is allowed to bring it home. This session, we covered the domain and range of functions, and expressing the domain in interval notation. Also, we looked at quadratics and inequalities. I assigned additional problems for homework to be reviewed on Monday. This is the first time the student has seen this material, and it took him some time to get a grasp on the process and the concept, but towards the end, I think it started to click for him."
"Went through almost all of the pre-calc material she had done this semester (prior to tutoring), including: polar forms, parametric eqs, the unit circle. Started hyperbolas. Next session we will finish conics, prepare for major test, and start going over last semester's material."
"Covered Chapter 8: Sequences, Series, Probability; Section 8.1: Sequences and Series; Section 8.2: Arithmetic Sequences and Partial Sums; Section 8.3: Geometric Sequences and Series; completed homework assignment problems from textbook."
"We went over the student's recent test involving conics and did test corrections. We then went over the student's Chemistry work involving chemical reactions. We went over classifications of reactions (such as double replacement or synthesis) and then went over how to balance various reactions. We also reviewed how to put together ionic molecules based on their charges. Overall, the student seems to understand the material quite well."
"We reviewed the unit circle and solving for the values of the six trig functions. We spent the majority of our time verifying trig identities. She asked for extra review on this, so we did a lot of problems to practice. We also combined log rules with the identities for practice."
"We reviewed the quiz the student took in class and the practice quiz for the test. We covered trigonometric identities, verifying expressions, logarithmic properties and values for trig functions over intervals. I told the student to review graphing the basic trigonometric functions and memorize the trigonometric identities for her test."
