Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Did a final review for the midterm exam, which included functions and their inverses, composition, domain/range, continuity, piecewise functions, limits, and even/odd functions. Throughout the year, his quiz and test scores have been consistently high so I expect him to do well on the midterm."
"We did a review for her exam this week that involves solving conic equations including parabolas, circles, hyperbolas, and ellipses. We went over the formula for asymptotes for hyperbolas and how to use the center, foci, and asymptote formula to find the equation of the hyperbola. She began to master the subject. She had no problems with the circles, parabolas, or ellipses."
"We went over her homework assignment regarding the solving of three and four simultaneous equations with three to four unknown variables using elimination, substitution, and Gaussian row-echelon elimination. We also reviewed her notes from class and worked practice problems in preparation for her exam that was taking place the following day."
"We reviewed a recent test going over what the student missed after that went back over old tests continue to correct mistakes, answering any questions he had in regards to concepts or problem solving methods. We continued to emphasize good test taking skills and reviewed a couple ways of taking tests that might help. From there we discussed a couple test taking tips and study methods."
"The student had a worksheet of induction proofs. They were actually very difficult, and I had her dissect her notes to figure out how to do them. She eventually caught on because we were able to break the problems down to three possible methods."
"In this session the student and I covered solving trigonometric expressions through the use of fundamental identities and rules. She struggled the most with knowing how to start a problem and knowing when to end. At first the student was hesitant with the material since she was not use to math problems having a variety of ways of being solved, but as we went through examples and problems she caught on to the methods and started to enjoy the homework. I included a strategy in always keeping the Sin(x) and Cos(x) and simplifying everything else %75 of the time. I left the student to finish her homework."
