Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I continued to prepare for his exam. We reviewed several implicit differentiation problems. We then used "you" substitution to solve definite and indefinite integrals. We then addressed trig functions, inverse trig functions, and word problems. He is well prepared for the exam."
"In this lesson, we continued practicing everything from the previous session about critical numbers and local extrema, and then added in more on the second derivative/concavity and specifically the second derivative test for determining what type of local extrema a critical number is. We also covered the very challenging task of sketching f' from a picture of f, or sketching f from a picture of f'."
"During this session we went over the student's previous exam focusing on the questions he had difficulty with. We moved on to reviewing the student's homework which was on derivatives. There are several things he needs to work on, but overall this session went well."
"We reviewed the problems I created for him covering algebra and trig. I will create a new set for him to work tonight. He is making good progress. He needs a little more work with trig."
"The topics we covered included: 1. Related rates 2. Trigonometric parameters with related rates 3. Setting up functions and finding minimum/maximum values"
"We went over problem sets on logarithms and exponential equations. We reviewed log properties. I left with a few recommendations so ensure that the student keeps working and is ready for her midterm."
"We worked on Differentiation - Power rule, chain rule, product rule, quotient rule, trig functions, exponential and log functions."
"Euler method, u-substitution, trigonometric integration, and other review for a test on Tuesday. First session went very well!"
"We went through review worksheets for the student's final, focusing on L'Hopital's rule and implicit differentiation. We then went back and practiced more examples of these."
"I helped the student complete his homework in Section 4.4 from his text, and we worked suggested optimization problems from Section 4.7. We worked on remembering differentiation rules and formulas from previous sections, and setting up word problems."
"We introduced definite and indefinite integrals and did several practice problems using the new concepts."
"The student had a specific questions about a few topics which included limits, optimization, and graphing, so we reviewed all of those topics in this session."
