Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we went over how to graph sine, cosine, and cosecant functions. He was doing well with them. It was a pretty good first session, we just need to make sure he remembers how to label his axis and graphing the parent functions correctly so that the phase shifts don't throw him off."
"Today, we reviewed Section 2.1 Fundamental Trigonometric Identities. The best way for the student to understand the concept is to do rote memorization of all the identities and recognize patterns of which identity to use by practice. Once the student realized that it was simply substituting the identities in certain formulas, he quickly grasped the concept and felt confident to do so by himself. Student should finish rest of the practice questions from his textbook that we had started working on. The student's parent would also like for me to review the previous chapter and solidify his comprehension of the topic."
"Today's lesson was mainly about imaginary numbers (i),(i^2=-1). The student did really well in terms of understanding the concepts. She didn't struggle with anything in particular. We also went over materials that will be covered tomorrow, dividing the complex number. I provided a quick way to approach the question, which is to multiply both numerator and denominator by the conjugate."
"Today's session was about vector spaces, speed, and angle review. We reviewed two-dimensional vectors. Understood the difference between speed and velocity. We calculated distances using sin/cos/tan and Pythagorean theorem."
"Today's session with the student consisted of getting her through her lab report, ensuring that all components were satisfied accordingly and clearing up any confusion along the way. We were able to touch on solubility, identifying back and forth between compound names and writing their chemical formula according to the charges of elements and compounds, as well as identifying between molecular, ionic, net ionic equations, and synthesis, decomposition, single, and double replacement reactions."
"We covered ACT prep. various different types of questions. He struggles mostly with problem setup, setting up the question, and understanding what is asked. Once we went over a few examples, he was OK. He has been OK; some topics catch him off guard, but for the most part, he has been fine. We worked on 345 triangles and 30 60 90 triangles. He has an ACT prep workbook, so he has extra material."
