Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student had questions on her notes on graphing trig functions and transformations of graphs. We discussed how to build a table and transform values, how to calculate the period, amplitude, phase shift, and vertical shift of graphs, and how to build an equation from points and a given graph. Once we reviewed the notes, I found relevant problems from the learning platform and checked for understanding. She did a good job today!"
"The student is a pleasure to work with. She was prepared with a list of questions for her test on Tuesday, and we were able to work through all of them. She has a few things left to memorize and needs to ask her teacher what process she should use to graph scatter plots on her graphing calculator, but otherwise she is in excellent shape for her exam."
"The student is currently working on the power rule, product rule, and quotient rule for derivatives. She did very well working with them on her homework, only once needing a reminder of how the quotient rule works."
"The student is doing fairly well in her Pre-Calc class. We went through the concepts covered on this week's homework today, and then moved on to test-taking skills. She is doing well on homework and take-home exams, but she got an average score in her in-class test. We narrowed this down to a few causes: stress/rushing during the test, not fully grasping a few concepts, tendency to second-guess her own answers, and frustration in addressing some of the more tedious tasks. We went through these items one-by-one tonight, and we'll revisit them after her next exam to see where further improvements can be made."
"The student is having a little bit of trouble with the new section on sequences. It is a lot of new formulas all at once. She had a hard time remembering all of them and keeping them straight. It will just take more practice, but it seems like it will be a harder chapter for her than the last one."
"The student is still doing well with the review material the class is going over. They are still in chapter 2 but finishing up. He doesn't seem to struggle with anything in particular at the moment. We'll have to see how things go after testing and as the material picks up during the school year."
