Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Tonight, the student and I focused on the binomial theorem and solving systems of equations using the elimination method. We also incorporated some basic review for her test tomorrow and her final Saturday. We are both feeling confident for her upcoming final."
"Tonight, the student and I reviewed trigonometric identities and trigonometric proofs. We spent the entire tutoring session doing practice problems that strengthened her knowledge of these concepts. After doing dozens of these problems, she displayed a mastery of these topics. She is fully prepared for her quiz on Friday."
"Tonight, the student and I worked on finding reference angles in radians and degrees, finding all six trig function values of the common angles, and solving problems involving linear and angular velocity. I showed him how to use reference triangles to find trig function values, as well as how to draw and label a unit circle for the same purpose."
"Tonight, we reviewed the student's first two tests and made flashcards on the material. We discussed the importance of him studying in between sessions. He should review flashcards, rework test problems, and work on his online HW before our next session."
"Tonight, we worked on problems from the student's practice test in preparation for her test tomorrow. There was a huge amount of material to cover, and we covered the major topics (inverse trig functions, double angle formulas, half angle formulas, trig identities, and solving trig functions). This section of trigonometry requires a lot of memorization of formulas, which I think she needed to work on. She mentioned she would make flashcards tonight to help her memorize the formulas. I think she has a really strong grasp of the material, and if she is able to memorize the formulas, I think she can do well on her test tomorrow. We will meet again next week."
"Topics we covered were limits, trig identities, triangles, and complex numbers. The student seemed to leave with a greater understanding of the material. He improved throughout the session."
