Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I covered phase shift of trigonometric graphs. She seemed to mostly struggle with graphing the functions. Her attitude is improving greatly. I included strategies such as writing what she knows down instead of trying to remember it. I did not leave any practice."
"The student and I covered these concepts: graphing of polynomials, rational and exponential functions, identifying increasing and decreasing functions with respect to slope, and explored relative maxima and minima of functions. We also reviewed using horizontal and vertical asymptotes, x- and y- intercepts in graphing arbitrary functions. She was very attentive and understood the explanations given for the covered sections."
"The student and I covered topics in polynomial and quadratic functions. He learned how to divide polynomial functions with a given factor, thus writing it in the simplest form. He understands the topics and we have moved forward past what his teacher has taught. The student was interested in the material and looked forward to practicing more. He grasped the concepts relatively quickly and was able to answer practice questions with some ease. I asked him to practice the majority of the questions at the end of the chapter as well as the ones his teacher assigns. The student is definitely making good progress; he has the ambition to learn beyond the scope of the classroom."
"The student and I covered transformations and local minimums and maximums. They have the basic concepts down."
"The student and I dealt with topics related to trigonometric aspects that are most important for understanding in preparation for calculus lectures. His professor is orienting him toward understanding trigonometry to be able to do formulas and later graph them. Incidentally, we dealt mostly with the relationships between angle and length, and even angular velocity."
"The student and I did a test review for sin, cos, tan, cot, csc, and sec, and the inverse of the sin, cos and tan were explained and graphed out; answering questions using the homework sheet provided with 21 questions."
