Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over his test and made sure he was confident about his stuff. He pretty much had all his basics clear and knew how to solve. Overall session went excellently."
"We went over some more anti-derivative problems, covered the relationship between acceleration, velocity, and displacement and we reviewed special right triangles and trigonometric identities because the student wanted to get a little more comfortable with them."
"The student and I went into in-depth integrals, including trigonometric integrals. After doing several practice problems in addition to her homework, she was able to set up integrals to solve very quickly. She got a 93 on her last test, and I know she will continue to do just as well!"
"The student had a quiz on Monday for which we did focused test prep. Her teacher had previously given her a list of topics to be covered on the exam including particle motion, special derivatives, and optimization. We went through these topics individually beginning with special derivatives. While she had memorized certain key derivatives, I encouraged her to manipulate other functions to determine those she did not know. For example, she knew the derivative of the natural logarithmic function, from which we managed to determine the derivative of an exponential function. We then worked on particle motion and optimization problems. She felt thoroughly prepared for her exam by the end of the session."
"The student and I went over a practice final exam he had gotten and worked through several different problems. We covered all the questions he had from this exam and plan to go over anything else he wants reinforcement of on Wednesday."
"Student and I reviewed some older material to refresh her for her exam this week. Other than a few simple mistakes, the student showed strong retention of the old techniques."
