Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We just went over different techniques for solving quadratic equations. After doing a couple of review problems, it was clear she was ready for her quiz so we went on to future topics and did a couple sample problems there. The future parts of the chapter just combine things she is already proficient at, so I don't see those being problems. We took a quick look at some naming for her chemistry course and talked a little about hydrated compounds."
"We reviewed translations of trigonometric functions and solved a variety of math questions from a practice PSAT. He was struggling to remember how to graph translations but he recalled it quickly once I showed him an example. He has a positive attitude toward learning the material."
"We studied the six trig functions and using them to solve a triangle. converting to and from trig functions using reciprocals. We went over special right triangles and used them to find angles. Coterminal angles and the equation for all of them. She struggles with knowing what to do when first starting a problem but has no problem executing. We finished her homework and study guide. She has to study for her quiz tomorrow and memorize the special right triangles."
"We went over a good bit of review from Algebra II. He is currently in the preliminary chapter of a Trig/Pre-Calc class. So most of the topics came from worksheets that he had from class. Luke was a little rusty on some of the topics, but after some review, most of the concepts came back fairly quickly. Specific topics were: union and intersection of sets, simplifying expressions, rational expressions, factoring polynomials, and simplifying complex rational expressions."
"We went over both set theory and probability. The student just needs practice with doing problems. The book doesn't have a solution manual, but I suggested if he can't get one for his book, then see if there is a book with solutions to practice from."
"We went over math homework as well as the science presentation on the presidential candidates and the internet."
