Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"She and I worked on the review problems from her homework. We went over inverses of functions, composing functions into other functions, and interpreting variables. She is doing awesome, and she seems as though she is becoming more comfortable with the material."
"Student 1 and I covered the review given to her by her teacher for an upcoming test. She has been working very hard to learn her material but needed a deeper understanding of the steps needed to complete the problem. Student 2 is studying graphs and understanding concepts like continuity and range and domain."
"The class seems to be moving on to review/introduction of Trigonometry. Since not everyone takes a dedicated trig class before Pre-calc, the student has the benefit of it being taught a bit more like the class is seeing it for the first time. We covered the unit circle, reference angles, standard graphing of angles, complementary and supplementary angles, and some applications to physics involving tangential (or linear) speed and angular speed, as well as arc length. The student picked up on things rather well after being shown some examples and having the concepts explained a bit more to her. With some more practice I'm sure she'll have it all down easily."
"The concepts covered were the following: finding vertical and horizontal asymptotes, intercepts, solving rational equations, and graphing rational functions. The student is very knowledgeable about his homework assignment. He did not struggle with anything. The student is very motivated and is able to critically think how to approach application problems. No concerns regarding the student. I think the student is brilliant and impressive."
"The concepts specifically covered were test review and logarithms. The student didn't seem to struggle with any of the material. She quickly understood the material and was able to respond. She had a good attitude about the material. I showed her some methods and techniques to better understand and solve log functions. She needed to work on problems for a quiz so we used those problems as the extra practice. I saw a quiz taken before we started and noted the grade. A win is the student is gaining confidence and understanding the material."
"The concepts the student and I covered were: describing subsets of real numbers, set-builder notation, interval notation, vertical line test, identifying relations that are functions, evaluating a piecewise-defined function, tests for symmetry, even and odd functions, row-echelon form of a matrix, using Gauss-Jordan elimination to solve a matrix, and how to tell when a matrix has no solutions or infinitely many solutions."
