Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I reviewed unit circles and determining the trigonometric functions for given angles with known quadrants. He was very quick to pick up the tips and approaches in solving the questions and just needs to review the lesson taught today to be best prepared for his upcoming quiz/test."
"The student and I went over a few things he wanted to clear up from part 1 of his last exam. We looked at what he wasn't as confident in, and it seems we cleared it up. We then began to work on reviewing for part 2 of his exam. We looked at graphing sinusoidal waves and cofunction identities. He understood the cofunction identities from the first explanations, and I also told him why they made sense in terms of them just being phase shifted. He understands the ideas behind graphing trig functions, and there were few very minor errors I feel we corrected."
"The student and I went over introductory trig concepts. This included angle conversions, application of basic trig functions, and basic identities. For the most part, he needed little assistance with understanding the material. He just needed clarification on a couple of questions and certain notation. After I made these quick explanations, he was able to master the topics reviewed. He spent the rest of the session completing a homework assignment."
"The student and I went over logarithmic equations. She had missed a few days of school and was behind, but I was able to go over a bunch of worksheets with her, and she became a pro at the problems very quickly."
"The student and I went over past assessments to prepare for her test on Tuesday. We went over finding features of polynomials and graphing them, logs, domain of functions, and synthetic/ long division on polynomials. She did well with all of the material we went over. She needed a refresher on a few things, but by the end, was very solid on the material."
"The student and I went over problems related to quadratic functions, like finding their equations and graphs. It also included questions on matching a graph to its equation, plus a handful of word or verbal items that required a quadratic expression for their solution. She did quite well. I showed her an alternate style for doing these questions via factor theorem and making use of computed or given roots/ zeros. She is a quick learner, and welcomes the more difficult items and exercises."
