Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"In today's session, the student and I discussed how to understand trigonometric functions, how to derive different functions, how to understand trigonometric identities and deriving them. The student also worked on some homework problems, using and simplifying trigonometric functions and using trigonometric identities."
"Today, we continued to review for her upcoming final. She is comfortable with the material and feels adequately prepared. We will be meeting again next semester."
"In today's session, we continued reviewing for his final. We covered factoring with complex solutions, graphing transformations, and interest formulas."
"Today, we covered geometry, 3d geometry, and coordinate geometry concepts, and we did several examples. The student is well versed in all the concepts and just needs to memorize a few formulas and gain speed in execution to be on top level."
"We practiced using combinations to determine the probability of a particular outcome. We talked about how to determine the total number of outcomes for a situation using the nCr combination formula. We also looked at using the combination formula to calculate the number of ways to get the specific outcome we want to calculate the probability. We also looked at calculating probabilities for 'at least' and 'at most' types of events, such as drawing at least 3 kings when drawing 5 cards from a deck of 52. We saw how the 'at least' and 'at most' types of events simply add the probabilities of each qualifying event such as drawing no kings, drawing 1 king, or drawing 2 kings as well as the case of drawing 3 kings in our example of picking 5 cards from a deck of 52 cards. The student is doing well calculating various combinations and she is getting better at using the different combinations to calculate probabilities."
"The student and I went over Trig. I taught him that to convert between degrees and radians, you would multiply by the unit factor that pi radians = 180 degrees. We also worked on converting complex trig expressions to equivalent sine and cosine functions and simplifying using standard math relationships."
