Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"This session was spent analyzing word problems that involved the law of sines and the law of cosines. The student drew data visually to help solve complex word problems and using the law of sines and the law of cosines to find missing information required for the end solution. Afterwards we reviewed some physics problems that could be solved using the law of sines and the law of cosines."
"The student and I reviewed for her upcoming pre-calc test. She seemed to better understand a few confusing topics after we reviewed together."
"We reviewed Sections 4.1 through 4.3 for a quiz that the student was preparing for the following day. The student seemed to have a very strong grasp on the material. As long as the student takes his time, and checks his work he will receive a very good grade on the quiz. The student has been doing much better in the class, and if he continues to show his work, check it and take his time on each problem his success will continue."
"We went over transformations of trigonometric functions. I showed the student how to identify what type of transformation was happening by looking at the equation and showed him how each transformation affects the graph. We also went over how to construct a wave equation from information about a wave. The student seemed to be having trouble with the material in the beginning, but after multiple practice problems the student learned the material and was doing the problems very quickly and accurately."
"The student and I went over an online review for extra credit, covering trigonometric concepts and solidifying his understanding of those ideas. I also gave him tips for how to most effectively tackle those problems."
"The student worked on homework from the new chapter, the introduction of calculus. She first reviewed number theory, real, irrational, rational numbers, the result of adding/subtracting/dividing/multiplying radical numbers. She also began reviewing asymptotes, holes, limits approaching a certain value of x, and tangent lines to graphs."
