Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed tangent and cotangent functions wherein the period, vertical shift, phase shift, and increments were determined and used in graphing the given functions. The student was attentive and participated with the tutoring session."
"We started on quadratic functions and their graphs. We went over the process of finding the vertex of a quadratic function (aka the max or min) and the process of completing the square in order to write the quadratic function in standard form, which allows us to discern the vertex (h,k)."
"We went over 2.5 pgs of sample problems in preparation for a test on Monday. The general subject was functions; more specifically, we went over: definition, the vertical line test, domain, range, intercepts, maxima and minima, combining functions, graphs, transformations, and piecewise functions. I advised student to work the remaining problems that we did not have time to cover, especially those on average rate of change."
"We went over a few quizzes and tests on which the student got a few questions wrong. We corrected them together. We then did some practice with graphing trigonometric functions. She started off a bit hesitant regarding the material. She would do it mostly correctly, but it would take her a while. By the end of the session, she was able to do most of the problems entirely on her own and in a much faster time."
"We went over a homework assignment and also began working on the student's test review. His homework assignment was on finding the domain of a function using interval notation. This was also our first time meeting at a coffee shop, as opposed to his residence. As usual, he was very attentive and understood everything very easily. He is making significant progress, and his grade is getting better in Pre-Calc!"
"We went over a new set of worksheets. Some of the problems involved calculating the domains of various functions, some of which had disjoint regions. We went over the ones that he had questions about. The rest of the problems had to do with determining inverse functions and domains of inverse functions given a function with a limited domain. Some of these problems were challenging. He had questions about some problems that we discussed and answered. I am going to look into additional explanations and review questions to help further expand on the concepts."
