Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on derivatives of parametric equations, tangent lines to the parametric equations, and used L'Hopital's rule to evaluate the limit of indeterminate forms."
"This was our first session together, so the beginning was spent getting some of the logistics figured out such as what the student's situation was, why she needed tutoring, and what she hoped to get out of it. After that, we proceeded to do multiple problems that were part of a review packet. During this time, we went over sin and cos transformations, exponential equations (and their inverses), log rules, and some basic, fundamental math techniques that can be used for all types of math problems."
"We discussed the domain of a function and how to solve for it. We discussed identifying sinusoidal functions and solving for the amplitude, offset, and frequency. We discussed limits and continuity, specifically identifying limits and discontinuity on graphs, as well as evaluating the limits of functions as x approaches specific values."
"We went over the real number system and organized real, rational, and irrational, integer, whole, and natural numbers. We went over questions dealing with identifying types of numbers and where irrational numbers lie between whole numbers. We also reviewed factoring trinomials and binomial squares, and I clarified leading coefficients, degrees of polynomials, and isotopes in chemistry (same element, different number of neutrons)."
"We reviewed Z scores, standard deviations, and 95% confidence intervals, and practiced with randomly generated numbers to calculate these values."
"Today the student and I reviewed for his quiz on limits on Tuesday. We went over the basics of evaluating limits graphically numerically and analytically. We also went over continuity and some advance limit theorems, such as the squeeze theorem. We are currently planning on meeting up this Wednesday evening, and will continue working on limits, and possibly will move into differentiation."
