Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student has been on spring break and was given study guides for her exam this week on Logarithm and Natural Log functions. Much of the unit was review for her and as such she was able to complete almost every problem from the study guides. We practiced problems that worked on more complicated theorems such as adding/ subtracting logs of the same base and manipulating logs with coefficients. We also used this as an opportunity to review the rules for performing mathematical operations with exponents."
"The student finished his homework at school, so we did some enrichment practice. I brought a few worksheets to practice order of operations. We started out with use of parentheses in multi-operation problems. Then we practiced exponents. Last we put parentheses and exponents together. He understands the steps/ order to solving order of operations problems."
"Today the student worked on his math homework. He is beginning to work with geometric representations of lines, rays and line segments. His assignment was to identify these representations from pictures provided. He got the hang of it, but just to reinforce the concepts I gave him other examples to practice and lectured further on the uses of geometry."
"During our session, the student and I worked on finding trigonometric values of different angles of the unit circle. She also practiced finding angles given trig values. She had to apply her knowledge of special triangle, signs of the different quadrants, and the Pythagorean theorem to solve the problems. While it may take her some time to problem solve, she does so correctly."
"Today, we worked on more problems determining the exact solution to inverse trigonometric functions. We also introduced half angle rule equations and tricks to solving trigonometric problems using triangles. Finally, the student completed her assignment by working on angular frequency and harmonic motion problems."
"We covered the unit circle and started looking at trigonometric identities. The student is struggling mainly with the basic foundations, but once learned is very quick to apply them. He was ready, willing, and cooperative when it came to learning the material. We covered online resources that will be helpful when studying for the class (the teacher does not provide a book)."
