Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered an extensive introduction to the concept of vectors and their use on a Cartesian coordinate system. We also reviewed older concepts of basic trigonometry in order to find intuitive solutions for identifying vectors."
"The student and I started to cover the solution of a multi variable system through row operations. This is a precursor to matrix math, which I am excited to start. The student is comfortable with the arithmetic. She is excellent at taking each problem step by step. She has a test later this week and should be well prepared."
"The student and I went over some more topics in Calculus. We went over differentiation and the various ways of taking derivatives. We focused mainly on the chain rule, product rule and quotient rule. He is getting ready for his exam and the session went well."
"Went over limits and their uses, using limits to find vertical asymptotes, using limits to find horizontal asymptotes, using limits to find continuity of functions, and using intermediate value theorem with intervals."
"We reviewed over continuous and discontinuous functions, range and domain, and step functions. She has the unit circle memorized. The teacher is putting together a last minute test over basic ideas for the end of the semester. According to both her father and herself her grades are showing definite improvement."
"The student did a 2nd grade math assessment. He did well. We corrected the missed problems. I timed him on his 0-7 multiplication facts. He did his best so far."
"The student is using derivatives to find local max and mins. He's also using derivatives to find out where functions are increasing or decreasing. This is generally very easy except when speed is involved and we need to take the absolute value. I reminded him a few times to use the product rule."
"We spoke about the two part test the student's class took last week. I think his grades will be greatly improved from the last test. He feels confident about the material that was tested. I also began the introduction to radian measures and we started work with arc length and sector areas."
"Area of triangles, polygons, trapezoids, rhombi, kites, Pythagorean triples, 45-45 triangles, 30-60 triangles. We will practice finding sides of triangles. The student is not struggling at all."
"On Friday, we continued working on graphing formulas. The student learned how to graph an equation using just the y-intercept and the slope, and how to change an equation into slope-intercept form. We also solved some word problems that showed real-world applications of graphing and formulas."
"Covered addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of equations having one variable. Gave both many types of problems and both students had an excellent grasp of what we covered today."
"Worked with the student on her study review guide for her test. She was able to complete the assignment and should be well prepared for her test. After we finished we worked on her homework on rates and ratios. Overall good session."
