Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we reviewed the student's homework, which required him to draw diagrams to solve math word problems. We also worked on and he understood the concept of comparing fractions and understanding what makes fractions equivalent."
"In reviewing for the test, we discussed some free response questions that required the trapezoidal rule and average value theorem. The student has a very strong understanding of integration and derivative techniques."
"We reviewed how to factor and simplify polynomial equations. After covering different strategies on how to approach these problems, we went over a number of practice problems. The student has a good understanding on how to approach them. Her preferred strategy is trial and error. With more practice, she will gain a solid feel for the most likely values that will factor any given polynomial equation. Overall, it was a great session."
"We reviewed for the student's test tomorrow. We talked about scale factors and figures. We discussed how to use scale factors to find the ratio of surface areas and volumes. We also went back from ratios of surface areas and volumes to find scale factors. The student will review more before her test tomorrow."
"The student has an exam tomorrow on trigonometric functions. We worked on a review sheet that covered finding trigonometric values of different angles, without using a calculator. The biggest section of the review sheet involved inverse trigonometric functions, so she needed to review the trigonometric values of the unit circle, finding reference angles, drawing right triangles, and the inverse properties of trig functions. We also quickly reviewed how to find the amplitude, period, vertical shift, and phase shift of trig equations. She had already had an exam on this content, but review is still necessary."
"The student needed extra practice on solving trig equations before the test, which will be given tomorrow. We used problems from his book. He also showed me his quiz, and he re-worked the missed questions."
