Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today, the student and I practiced visual analysis of functions, determining intervals of increase and decrease and relative extrema. The student understood the work quickly."
"We went over simplifying rational expressions. By the end of the session, the student demonstrated he understood the work by solving the problems correctly."
"We focused on ambiguous cases of sine, law of sine, and law of cosine. I showed the student the equation for Herron's Law, triangle area, and he understood that quickly."
"We reviewed and practiced the unit circle and quickly found the value of trigonometric functions given an angle. We also started working on graphing inverse the trig equations arcs in and across by restricting the domain. Although more practice is needed to memorize the unit circle completely, we have made very good progress overall."
"We worked on the student's general review. We talked about how to write exponential functions based on a table and worked a lot with how to write equations for parabolas. We talked about how to find the vertex and x and y intercepts. We worked on some geometry problems using the segment addition postulate and areas of shapes. Finally, we worked on finding function inverses, how the domain can be restricted and how to show whether a function was indeed an inverse."
"Worked on finding and graphing inverse functions. Also worked on determining whether or not a function is a one-to-one function."
