Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on reviewing her understanding of the concepts of inverse of functions and periodic functions. Using some practice problems from the online database, we reviewed the general function for periodic functions (e.g., sine, cosines) and the student was able to learn how to determine the amplitude, fundamental and new period, phase shift, and vertical shift of the given functions (and graphs as well)."
"The student wanted to go over a test review packet containing radical expressions and radical equations, both with radicals and with rational exponents. We worked out every problem he had a question on, and worked through the explanation for each question."
"The student wanted to understand how degrees of an angle could be converted to radians. I walked him through this conversion. He also wanted to know about how to convert degrees and arc-minutes and arc-seconds into a decimal amount of degrees; I also explained this. He also wanted to know about how to find positive and negative coterminal angles; I explained this. I answered his questions quickly, and he thanked me for my help."
"The student was doing homework having to do with double angle formulas like finding sin(2x) given sin(x) and proving identities relying mostly on the double angle formulas. She needed a little help with some of the problems but was doing pretty well with them. Afterward, we went over some old material that she will be reviewing soon for her final."
"The student was doing review work in preparation for his next test. We went through problems involving factoring, using the quadratic formula, completing the square, and solving radical equations. He is doing well with this material."
"The student was feeling anxious about the material she'll have to know for her precalc test this week on basic geometric principles and formulas, including surface area and volume of various shapes, and subsequently manipulating them according to the given problems. I advised her to prioritize the questions regarding two distinct objects moving along the coordinate grid according to the north-south-east-west convention. She definitely became more confident about the material. I left her a reference sheet with formulas for various shape volumes and surface areas, which she should memorize, or at least know how to derive when given the shapes. I wish her the best of luck on her test."
