Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Due to the student's massive strides in her work ethic regarding math, she has developed a solid studying habit. We have decided to discontinue our sessions unless she feels her understanding/grades begin to suffer again. I spent this last session preparing her for her exam next Tuesday. Only material from sections 8.4 and 8.5 will be on the exam. We spent the majority of this session organizing her understanding of the topics and completing practice problems. We also outlined a study schedule for her to continue on with after our sessions are complete."
"The student has now moved on to geometric, arithmetic and binomial series. He was able to solve some problems to complete his homework and prepare for tests. He solved them with very little guidance. It is clear he is very mathematically minded and quick to understand and solve difficult problems and concepts. We also used our session time to make notes on flashcards and a chapter outline to prepare for his upcoming test."
"The student has a pre-calculus test tomorrow on the trigonometric and rectangular forms of some complex numbers along with DeMouivre's theorem. We went through many practice questions and he was able to understand."
"The student moved to logarithmic functions and laws of logs. I had a few tips and tricks to help him learn this fast and he certainly did. After making sure he understood, he moved on to a set of homework problems."
"Today we went through the student's trig function practice test. It covered solving algebraic problems involving sine and cosine as well as graphing algebraic equations with sine, cosine, secant, cosecant, tangent, and cotangent. She did very well. She had a good understanding of how to approach the problems and was able to identify the generic variables and say what they did to the graphs. We worked through a graph for each one of the trig functions and she asked questions to clarify any confusion. She did very well and only stumbled a little with the reciprocal and quotient curves. After working through the practice problems she was fine."
"We covered pre-calculus concepts (polynomial functions, roots of polynomial, complex roots, long division synthetic division)."
