Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I prepared for an upcoming test on trigonometry by going back through his homework and notes. We briefly covered each subject (degrees/radians, the unit circle, graphing trig functions, trig identities) and I was able to answer any lingering questions. The student was occasionally prone to minor errors, but conceptually seemed to understand the material."
"The student and I worked ahead in his math class. We talked about anti-derivatives and how to find them based on working backwards. He picked up the material quickly and he seems to be in a good position in his class."
"Lesson 81: Laws of Cosine. We also brushed up on the following topics: Cramer's rule: finding easier ways to solve the equations when student cannot remember the formula for Cramer's rule by any chance. Student is waiting on the result of her weekly test she took last Wednesday."
"Today the student and I covered problems dealing with Geometry. Such as relating area to volume and surface area. Many of these examples are posed as word problems which he had some issues converting into formulas or relationships. Towards the end of the session, he was grasping the material well and felt comfortable for tomorrows quiz. On the last quiz he received an 88% and a ~90% on his most previous homework. His midterm is coming up soon, so we plan on meeting several times before that."
"I identified and explained to the student the meaning of the ordered pairs of points, linear, and quadratic equations & functions; graphed linear equations, found the slope of certain linear functions. I worked on preparing the student for the SAT."
"The student and I reviewed sum and difference formulas of sine, cosine, and tangent. As we went through the formulas and practice problems, she was writing down notes. She was very receptive to the examples and the information I was giving her. The extra practice was good reinforcement. I advised her to review all the identities we went over again by writing them down on a blank piece of paper over and over again."
