Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student earned a B on his last math test, his highest score this semester. We went over review problems. He does well on basic problems."
"The student has a test coming up soon. At this session, we continued the review problems that she was working on earlier. The material we covered included the topics of polynomial long division, synthetic division, factoring, slide-and-divide, and graphing polynomial equations. She needs the most help with graphing polynomials with horizontal/vertical asymptotes. We worked specifically on these problems. Otherwise, she has shown a lot of progress on the conceptual foundations, like domain/range/etc. I have confidence in her upcoming performance."
"We covered the trigonometric functions sec, cos, and cot. We talked about how to use a unit circle to identify outputs of the functions for different angles. We also reviewed various mathematical properties of these functions and how to simplify them. The student is learning most of the material for the first time during our sessions. She is quickly catching on and has no problem doing the homework problems with a little guidance."
"The student is still working on Chapter 4 in which she is learning how to graph all the trigonometric functions and how to perform transformations. She's learned that finding the period and amplitude of the function will help determine the graph intervals in order to accurately draw at least one full cycle. She also got her last test back, and she earned an A. This was a great improvement. It reflects her solid understanding of the material."
"The student and I reviewed for her pre-calc test and did some physics problems. For pre-calc, we covered how to factor trig expressions. For physics, we covered work, energy, potential energy, and kinetic energy."
"We worked through a review of the student's previous material to start preparing for finals. We worked on logarithms and recalled the notes for that. We practiced examples to follow. We also reviewed one current topic in vectors and spent the remaining time reviewing chapter 2 in preparation for finals."
