Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We focused on arc functions as well as co functions in trigonometry as well as figured out how to deduce values from the different graphs."
"Today, we went over questions regarding force, weight, parallel vs perpendicular vectors, and strategies of finding an angle between them."
"The student needed review for a test on Friday in logarithms. I brought a sheet with all of the log properties on it and challenged her with harder-than-necessary practice problems. We went over the review sheet from her class as well, and I replaced some of the numbers so that she would have to go through the problem again. Overall, I think this session was a great help to her."
"We covered integration by u substitution. The student has a retest coming up. We worked through several exercise problems from her textbook. She has a good grasp on the standard procedure and did well on some of the problems, but will practice on the more difficult problems which require transformation of the integrand before solving. We have scheduled another session for today at 5:00 pm, when we will complete the set of problems covering this topic."
"We continued to work through review problems to help prepare the student for her final next week. Specifically we spent time reviewing functions, how to solve a function given a certain x value, inverse functions, and how to graph them. We spent time reviewing this the previous session so some of the concepts she was comfortable with already. She plans to work through the review packet so that we can identify areas that she doesn't know well, and I will come up with some extra problems for her to do as practice so that she knows how to do them for the final."
"We went over ellipses. We determined what the ellipse looked like given what we know of the center or origin, and distance from the center. We also found the vertex and focus of the ellipse."
