Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered shifts and translations from a parent function. In particular how to shift a function along the x axis and y axis. We also covered vertical and horizontal dilation and stretches. Then we went over translation across the x and y axis. Finally, we covered the odd and even functions."
"We covered sketching and analyzing graphs of polynomials and radial equations. We covered ways to find the first and second derivative of the equation as well as finding the x and y intercepts. Other concepts covered were finding asymptotes and points of inflection."
"We covered slopes, FOIL, functions, inverse functions, graphing the functions, and transformations (stretching, shrinking, offsetting, and inverting). The student had trouble on her last quiz and a review of these topics will help her out. She'll have to correct the test on her own and turn it in soon. She's been making a lot of mistakes like not doing the FOIL correctly or not using PEMDAS when needed. She's struggling but is moving forward. Next time we'll cover odd and even functions."
"We covered some exercises and problems on right triangles and the law of sines. It included word problems that require formulas or results in trigonometry. The student had some difficulty in applying the law of sines and its applications. I encouraged her to label the parts of the triangle relating to the word problem, so as to better identify the correct application of the trigonometric identities or law of sines, in solving the word problems. We will continue to work on this. She had a set of exercises already provided by her teacher to work on as a review for her assessment next Thursday."
"We covered the first three sections of the book that he had reviewed with his teacher. The concepts included mostly trig applications of finding angles and aqualinks. I recommended that he review problems that would allow him to practice applying the formulas associated with this set of concepts."
"We covered the rational roots theorem, graphing polynomials, intermediate value theorem, and complex numbers. The student wasn't really struggling with anything too much, but we spent a good bit of time on graphing polynomials. She has a great attitude toward learning the material and talks her way through each problem. This is really helpful because it lets me know what she needs help with. It was a big win to see her solving problems on her own that she needed help with the first time."
