Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Worked with the student on vectors for her Pre-Calculus class. She had the basics down. Just needed some extra help on vector addition and subtraction and finding the end components."
"We covered the student's SAT math test results today. We worked with word problems, especially writing out the meaning of text in a formula. We then proceeded to cover the last chapters in the pre calculus book. We covered vectors, creating vectors pointing from point to point, scalar products between vectors, angles between vectors, and lengths of vectors. Next, we covered unit vectors, as well as linear operations on vectors, and addition and scalar multiplication. The student was left with the homework to finish before the test, but all the basics were covered."
"This session was mainly geared towards reviewing all the concepts he needs to know before his exam tomorrow. The concepts we went over were Cramer's rule, partial fraction decomposition, inverting matrices, determinants, etc. He seemed really positive and got the gist of most of the information I told him. He was struggling most with partial fraction decomposition, but he started to understand that as well. I think if he continues to do practice problems, then he will do well on the exam he has tomorrow."
"The student and I worked on logarithmic and exponential functions today. We started by reviewing the method to convert one into the other. Then she did some problems in which she had to solve for a variable in one of these functions. After this she worked on homework related to the product, quotient, and exponent properties of logarithms. Then she worked on problems that required her to do the process in reverse. In the end she understood the concept and was able to do basic problems without difficulty, and more complex ones with a little guidance. We finished by doing a quick recap of how to solve for a variable, exponent rules, and properties of logarithms."
"We covered combinations and permutations. The student understand pretty much all of the concepts and seemed comfortable with the material. I served mostly to answer a few tiny questions he had and give him an explanation behind the math formulas he was using. The toughest subject was circular permutations but after working through a few problems, he realized how to solve them on his own."
"Today we covered the remainder of the student's worksheet. We covered graphing complex numbers as well as simple circuit problems that incorporated all topics we started with. He is doing very well with complex numbers. He briefed me about his test he took and he did great, ahead of the class actually. The only feedback I would give him is to keep organized and don't forget about the signs and the commutative property when breaking down multiples.
