Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

★★★★★

"The first part of this semester for the student will be covering trigonometry. Today we focused on applying trig functions and learning the unit circle. He remembered a lot from his past trig training that will help a lot with this section. Learning the unit circle takes time, as there is a lot to remember, but it is a valuable tool. Finally, we covered some arc length and circular motion problems. We will continue to work on trig as it gets more advanced."

★★★★★

"Today, we spent most of our time discussing the plots of trigonometric functions. She was fairly comfortable with the plots of sine and cosine, so we focused on tangent, cotangent, cosecant, and secant. I connected the plots to the techniques we had covered for graph sketching last year and maintained a focus on the fundamental process used for sketching any graph. We also spent some time looking at trigonometric identities. I emphasized a minimal approach to memorizing specific trig identities. Instead, I suggested that she memorize a handful of core identities from which she could derive other identities. At this point we only looked at the Pythagorean identity, but we will add more as they become relevant to her class. We then spent the remainder of our time doing some practice problems from her book.
She had a quiz on the unit circle last week, and she said she finished it very quickly and felt confident about it, but she has not gotten a score back yet."

★★★★★

"Reviewed various types of combinations and permutations problems in preparations for this week's test. Paid extra attention to multiple combinations problems because those are the ones the student was most unsure of. Also practiced binomial distribution using Pascal's triangle and using the resulting coefficients to determine the probabilities of all outcomes of a situation. She seemed to have a good understanding of the fundamentals and was quick to pick up the more complex material after working through the corresponding examples."

★★★★

"Yesterday, we worked mostly on general and particular solutions to trigonometric functions. We reviewed the concepts behind what general-and-particular-solution questions were asking for and how they relate to previous material. The concepts were reinforced graphically. I have sent a note to her to let her know we were on the right track and hope to revisit next time. So far, overall response from her has been very positive. She is picking up the concepts with relative ease and is able to apply them to difficult problems. "

★★★★★

"The student and I finished midterm review with questions on compositions, inverses, logs, interest, half life, and geometry. We did a set of 24 log problems to perfect expansion, condensation, solving, changing or base, and the definition of logs. We also reviewed interest formulas. He is doing excellent."

★★★★★

"The student had a worksheet on graphing the basic trig functions and evaluating the functions at special angles. He also had an assignment from the book dealing with reference angles. He did well on both. We then previewed the upcoming lessons on the reciprocal trig functions and inverses. He didn't do the best on a recent quiz, but he said he understood the material and simply ran out of time. I will try to work on more time management skills with him in the future."

★★★★

"We went through the section in her Pre-Calc book on sinusoidal dampening. We worked through the examples, then did several practice problems. She had the most trouble using the vocabulary and understanding what questions were asking when they used jargon.
We went over her Physics homework on conservation of momentum. We talked about setting up equations as "before" and "after" and we talked about breaking 3-dimentional motion into x and y components."

★★★★★

"We reviewed her homework in preparation for her quiz. We mostly talked about exponential growth and decay, as well as compounding interest. She fully understands the concepts; she just needs a bit more fluidity doing the problems."

★★★★★

"The student has her final tomorrow in Pre-Calc. It's actually a class that is combined with statistics. She was given a review packet that had practice exercises from all four chapters. We reviewed the packet together. "

★★★★★

"We covered trig equations, and in addition, I taught him the Unit Circle. I also gave a brief lesson on factoring. The student needed the most help with strategies for solving the problems, but this greatly improved after I taught him specific techniques for solving the various problems. "

★★★★★

"We spent the whole day preparing for the student's final. We spent most of our time going over things from the first few chapters of this semester. There was a ton of graphing, finding the asymptotes, holes in the graph, finding zeros, etc. We did a brief review of logs, and basic trig. Then we spent a good amount of time going over inverse trig functions, how to find them, and how to graph them. We did cover a ton of material today; I tried to go over everything with an emphasis on the early content, the things he hasn't seen in a month or two."

★★★★★

"We covered two-dimensional and three-dimensional vectors, and how to draw a three-dimensional box from vectors. We spent most of our time going over the student's homework. Overall, she had a strong command of the material and only needed a little guidance on how to approach a few of the problems. "
