Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student's class had been coming to an end so we covered past test and worksheets that her teacher had given her."
"We spent most of our time reviewing trig and logs. We also worked on 30/45/60 for sin/cos/tan, and how to solve trig equations and using trig inverses."
"We went over application of trig functions and their transformations. The student has improved greatly on proving certain trig identities."
"The student's class has moved on to factoring polynomials so it was nice to review our work on greatest common factors. I am very pleased with his progress; he is quite the math whiz! He worked on his homework and we will meet again on Sunday!"
"This session was entirely focused on putting the final touches on the student's knowledge of the material for her test. I brought with me more detailed answers of questions she had about the n-day multiplier, proof of the constant multiplication rule, and a set of rate exponential word problems. She has a better understanding now of these concepts and has moved away from straight memorization towards knowing the actual rules and why they work. She now is able to set up many types of exponential rate functions by either finding the initial values and the multiplier or by creating functions given values. She said she was going to write down all she knows one more time before the test. I am excited to see how this plays out seeing as she is more prepared than with the last test."
"During this session we went over a review sheet for the student's exam on Thursday. The material is all from chapter 9 - Sampling Distributions. This chapter has specific problems relating to sampling distributions conceptually and using them in conjunction with both sample means, sample proportions, and the standard deviations associated with those measures. We got through about 80% of the practice sheet and the student will be sending me his answers to the rest of the problems before his test. Overall, he's making a lot fewer errors than when I first started working with him. He should be in a good spot for this exam as long as he reads the problems carefully and takes his time."
