Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student is learning to apply calculus to the economic ideas of consumer and producer surplus. We discussed the meaning of supply and demand, how to find the equilibrium point and optimum price, and what it would mean for both the producer and consumer if products were priced higher or lower than the optimum price, or if they were made in varying quantities other than at the equilibrium point. Lastly, we focused on integration, practicing how to identify when integration by parts is the best approach."
"Today's session with the student went really well. We worked a little bit on his current class work and talked about sequences and series but he didn't need to work on it much and he was wanting to work on calculus so we did that instead. We reviewed limits and talked about asymptotes and did more practice on the chain rule. He has a great attitude as always. I left him with a lot of practice problems so that he can practice everything that we have gone over so far."
"The student has started using 'f' to describe graphs. I'm doing my best to get her up to speed in using the math to answer problems and I hope to use more time to bring a deeper understanding and simplicity."
"Today, we went over some homework problems that covered the summation format of integrals, graphing integrals, and properties of definite integrals. I let the student try out the problem herself before offering assistance."
"Today, the student and I worked on more difficult integration techniques. We reviewed the material we worked on last week and were able to not only work though all the examples, but also we started on her homework problems. We discussed her making of integration flashcards for all of the new rules. She did a great job, this is not an easy topic. Keep up the good work!"
"Today, we reviewed for a quiz Isabelle has tomorrow. Since we didn't have a session last week, we had a lot to cover. The class went into integration at a very quick pace. We primarily covered integration by substitution, and many of the problems were quite advanced. The problems included integrating polynomials, natural logarithmic functions, and exponential functions. Even so, the student learned it quite well and is prepared for her quiz."
