Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today, we completed the student's review on limits for her upcoming quiz on the topic tomorrow. Then, we completed the student's homework on discontinuities. Then, we nearly finished the student's Physics homework on real world applications of vectors."
"Today's homework focused on applications of trigonometric and inverse trigonometric functions, including how to use the functions to find missing side lengths and angles in various theoretical and practical situations (e.g. navigation). We finished off the problems with a couple review questions about transforming trig functions."
"Today's session we finished a homework assignment and went on to the next one! The 2nd homework assignment was a little tougher, but I'm going to bring supplemental materials to go over it so we can fly through it and move on to the next homework. It had to do with applying vectors to word problems and using geometrical properties to figure out magnitude and direction of magnitude."
"Today's session went well, the student is a good student who just needs some direction and confirmation that his answers are correct. With the chapter review that we did today, he should be ready for his test tomorrow."
"Today's session with the student consisted of covering some key concepts in preparation for tomorrow's quiz. We covered some fundamentals of limits, one-sided limits, and infinite limits, as well as calculating limits, the Intermediate Value Theorem, and continuity."
"Tonight I continued reviewing with both students for the quizzes tomorrow. Student A and I continued to cover finding domain and range of functions. He was still struggling with identifying undefined regions of functions, and I specified the primary places he may have to define what a domain is with square root functions and fractions where the square root can never be negative and the denominator of a fraction can never be zero. We reviewed these several times as well as in identifying equations of piecewise functions and how to define the domains of each piecewise segment. The student and I worked through his review sheet, practicing drawing piecewise functions, absolute value functions and quadratic functions when horizontal and vertical shifts were applied. At first he was still having difficulty, but after more practice, and I explained the concepts further, he began to understand better and answered subsequent problems correctly and should be ready for his quiz tomorrow."
