Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"In this session we covered absolute value of polynomials and rational inequalities. The student was struggling the most with understanding the two cases to check for absolute signs and also how to use interval notation to express the inequalities. I saw the student improve in his thought process. I left the student to review for his final."
"We worked on logarithms to prepare for her test. Overall, she is comfortable with most log based problems. There were some issues when converting from log form to exponential form and when using some log properties to solve functions. She seems well prepared for her test. We will start preparing for finals next session."
"In our session, the student and I reviewed some of his previous homework and test problems. He worked on Cramer's rule problems (with systems of equations), synthetic division of polynomials, upper/ lower bound rules of polynomials, complete the square technique, and trigonometric functions. He was able to quickly compute and work on each of these problems, but the biggest struggle was showing his work and being able to dissect word problems. We talked a little bit and were able to do some hard problems. During the session, he was able to work on practice problems I came up with that were similar with ease. He definitely is making progress."
"We went over exercises using trigonometry identities to prove its validity, and others to simplify given math expressions with trigonometry identities. The student needs to memorize these identities, or to know how to derive them, which I taught him in order to get good scores."
"We reviewed for her finals. We went over how to do the remainder theorem. We also reviewed the unit circle again and a table for sin, cos, and tan from 0-90 degrees. Lastly we went over the Pythagorean identities."
"We covered conics and their properties, elementary probability, factoring special expressions, trigonometric identities and formula, basic trigonometric ratios, and evaluation of trigonometric expressions with basic angle values."
