Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The concepts we covered were using reciprocal and quotient identities, using Pythagorean identities, using cofunction and odd-even identities, simplifying trigonometric expressions by rewriting using only sine & cosine, simplifying trigonometric expressions by factoring, simplifying trigonometric expressions by combining fractions, rewriting trigonometric expressions to eliminate fractions, verifying a trigonometric identity, verifying a trigonometric identity by combining fractions, verifying a trigonometric identity by multiplying, verifying a trigonometric identity by factoring, and verifying an identity by working each side separately."
"The student and I covered degrees and radians comparisons to trigonometric identities. We also discovered how angle manipulation will affect the outcome of a trigonometric identity. He did an excellent job!"
"The student and I covered finding the area of triangles using the sin trigonometric ratio. We also found the area of trapezoids using the aforementioned. In regards to circles, we found the areas of sectors using radians and degrees. Lastly, we explored sinusoidal waves and how horizontal shifts affect the equation of the wave."
"The student and I covered how to create a sinusoidal equation from word problems, and how the components of the equation describe physical relationships. Mechanically, she had no trouble with the problems, but the link between the equations and their meaning took a few problems to make sense."
"The student and I covered logarithms, graphing, and finding exact values with trigonometric functions. He needed help a bit with logarithm algebra. As soon as he realized that the log of a constant is just a constant, he was more comfortable with it. He's got a great attitude toward learning the material."
"The student and I covered logarithms. We went over about two worksheets, and made sure she could use the logarithm formulas and solve those kinds of equations. It took some time for her to completely understand it, but once we got going, she moved through the problems quickly."
