Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered angular/linear velocities and got started with exponential growth and decay. The student had a test on those concepts, so we went over a few problems using the review sheet he was given in class."
"We covered concepts from chapter 8, including arithmetic sequences, geometric sequences, factorial notation, partial sums, sigma notation, and infinite series. We also developed an action plan to help the student get the most out of our sessions and pull his grade up in this class. He has been very proactive in emailing me materials that he's been working on and is highly motivated to do well in this class."
"We covered conversions from DMS to degrees, radians to degrees, and degrees to radians. The material is fairly straightforward. You simply multiply by the appropriate conversion factor for radian-degrees or degree-radian calculations. We also covered arc length formula."
"We covered cotangent and tangent functions, including shifts vertically and horizontally and changes of period. The student seemed to have a strong grasp on the material. I focused on trying to make him pay more attention to detail as that is where the majority of the mistakes were occurring."
"We covered determination of vertical asymptotes, horizontal asymptotes, zeros, and behavior approaching positive and negative infinity as an aid to graphing rational functions. There was an understandable slight reluctance to evaluate the function at points other than those mentioned above as the calculations can become laborious. The student's attitude was positive and he seemed to quickly absorb the concepts that were being discussed."
"We covered exercises related to completing the square. She was sufficiently focused on the steps for these types of questions and clear interest was shown on other advanced topics I showed like quartic formula and graphing quadratics."
