Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student had a test over trig identities and graphs. She said that she did a lot better than she expected, and we talked about how she can build her confidence. There were a few story problems and review sheets that we worked on."
"Reviewed for upcoming test on Friday going over concepts involving limits series and sequences and matrices. Went through areas where the student felt weak or had questions; addressing issues such as calculator use for certain problems as well as alternate methods that arrive at the same solution but more quickly."
"We covered graphical transformations due to input and output variations. The student received an 89% on his most recent test, and was pleased. Furthermore, his teacher docked some arguable points (so I hope for him to actually receive a grade more appropriate to his apparent understanding of all the concepts in the A- to A range). He doesn't seem to be struggling with any concepts, but just has a few simple errors, which happened a little on the test. I did not leave him with extra practice. No concerns from this session."
"The student needed help preparing for his test on Friday on trigonometry; he hasn't been doing well in his class but scored 95% on his last test. We worked on his homework assignment which consisted of proving trigonometric identities using the Pythagorean identities, the even-odd identities, and inverse identities. He picked up quickly on how to start approaching problems and when to distribute or factor functions. We also worked on memorizing the unit circle which he seems to understand now."
"The student and I spent our time working through logarithmic graphing, and manipulation. It was partially a review, and we talked about some new concepts. We worked through his review and his homework to prep him for his test on Friday."
"The student had a homework assignment from the textbook on graphing trig functions that we completed. We then spent the remainder of the session previewing the next section on trigonometric identities. He did fairly well on this and, therefore, should not have too much trouble when it is covered in class. He said he earned a B on his last test but that everyone struggled on the test such that, relatively speaking, his score was pretty good."
