Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student's class has started going into limits, finding one-sided limits and limits coming from both left-handed and right-handed directions. Since this is a new subject, he was a little uncertain about some of the new concepts, but he is catching on really quick."
"Today the student and I went over how to use different trigonometric identities (such as basic conversion identities, the sum and difference quotient, and the use of common right triangles) when solving problems. Although the student is still struggling with getting some of the concepts down, his skills have definitely improved since our first session. He was much more confident with doing the material today than he was in past sessions, so that is spectacular."
"We covered multivariate systems of equations and matrices. The student had done much of her homework in class, so we continued on to the next section, matrices, as she will not be present for the lesson. She admitted she liked solving systems of equations without matrices and would prefer that to the new concept. No concerns for this tutoring session."
"Today we started looking at limits. The student just started this topic in class and has only gone through the very basics of limits. I talked him through the general idea of limits and how it's looking at what a function is approaching at a specific x value. We went through his homework where he had to find a limit using a tabling method or looking at a graph. He did just fine with the material. I also gave him a preview as to what the next lesson would look like where he would find specific values for a limit using algebraic methods."
"Today the student was circling back to finish up some homework involving planes in three space. We discussed how a point and two vectors can be used to describe a plane, and spent considerable time graphing in three-space."
"I helped the student review for an upcoming makeup quiz on solving trigonometric equations. She is well prepared for this quiz. We will continue meeting in January."
