Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over the student's study packets from his class and did a number of example problems from the book. The main topics that we covered were how to find the formulas for parabolas, circles, ellipses, and hyperbolas. We also spent a little time going over how to solve a system of quadratic equations. The student showed no real signs of trouble and seems to have a very good understanding of all the topics. He appears well prepared for his test."
"I helped the student study for her upcoming Trig exam. We mostly worked on review problems, specifically word problems containing applications of trig and using trig identities to transform trig functions into other trig functions. The student had some trouble initially with using trig identities, but after we went through a number of review problems, she definitely improved and was doing difficult problems on her own. For the word problems, she just needed to regain some familiarity and after that, she had no problems."
"The student was able to get her class notes from her teacher on 3 space. I went through the notes to fill in any details that were unclear and we finished the study guide. Notably we were able to determine a plane perpendicular to a line. This information wasn't discussed in the text so we had to back it out from class notes. The student left the session feeling confident about taking her exam on 3-space topics."
"We went over in review what questions she had over the last term, and discussed what is coming up according to her syllabus, which is mostly understanding trig functions, and how they relate to the unit circle, and other right triangles."
"The student and I continued working on Pre-Calculus topics such as Parametric Equations and Projectile Motion. I talked him through a few examples in his book before he attempted word problems in the Exercises section."
"Today's session served solely as review for the student's upcoming precalculus final. The material for the final is cumulative, from previous sessions as well as material prior to tutoring."
