Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We did plenty of trig problems ranging from simplifying trig equations to proving that a trig function is equal to another and to solving trig equations. A lot of these problems involved using trig identities."
"The student and I worked on polar coordinates and graphing polar equations. We reviewed her homework, and she had some questions from her previous assignment."
"The student and I examined his most recent exam for Rational Functions (on which he scored a 50). For each problem that he missed, we wrote down a step-by-step process for correctly answering similar problem sets. Next, we went over graphing logarithmic functions. I believe that he is ready for his retest and has a clear process for answering each question."
"Today we spent our time going over material for a test - finding exact values and using the graphing calculator to solve more complex trigonometric equations. The student seems to understand this material quite well. We also discussed her previous quiz over trig identities, on which she scored an 80%. She seems to understand the identities and how to graph the equations."
"The student and I worked on limits and how to find the limit of a function. We talked about how a limit tells us the slope of the tangent line at a point as well as how it looks graphically. He had missed a class, so we went through what a limit is and how to find it."
"We practiced the graphing of logarithmic functions including finding intercepts, asymptotes, and determining shifts from a parent function. We also used compounding interest functions."
