Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on a review of the homework for Section 4.6. For the majority of the time, the student didn't have problems. She asked questions and we clarified things but she understood it. We ran into some problems towards the end of the problems, and I think it was largely to do with the way I was explaining it. We eventually got it but I do recommend she asks her teacher for clarification. I then went over a few homework problems from 4.4. The student has a test coming up and I recommend that she re-work through all of her homework and try a few examples from the book she hadn't done before."
"The student and I worked on a review set of questions for her upcoming final exam in the course. We reviewed the law of sines and cosines, the magnitude and direction of vectors, sketching resultant vectors from given vectors, graphing periodic functions, and finding exact values of trigonometric expressions (e.g., cos 195 degrees) using angle sum & difference identities. She is looking in very good shape for the upcoming finals but needs to memorize the trigonometric identities, Pythagorean identities, and formula involving triangles with some known sides & angles."
"The student and I worked on both precalculus and chemistry. In precalculus, we covered basic trig identities such as the Pythagorean identity. In chemistry, we covered mole calculations and basic stoichiometry."
"The student and I worked on deriving logarithmic and natural log equations, as well as a review of the log and ln expanding properties prior to deriving them. We also reviewed limit rules and did some AP exam practice with limits."
"The student and I worked on extrema: absolute maximum and minima, and local max and min. After working through the homework, he is going to ask his teacher when to include interval endpoints, absolute extrema or local extrema."
"The student and I worked on her homework, which required her to verify more complex trigonometric identities. There was a marked increase in her ease with recalling and utilizing the basic trig identities since the time we worked with them in the previous session."
