Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered the integral part of the fundamental theorem of calculus, we went over what the fundamental theorem of calculus means, encompasses and what it is used for."
"The student and I worked on homework involving derivatives of functions raised to a power, inside a logarithm, or inside of inverse trig functions."
"Covered exam material. Integration using different methods (integration by parts, u-substitution). Evaluating definite integrals, involving natural logarithms and exponential functions. He understood everything well, better than the average students. There are some unusual things about integration by parts, but after practicing a few problems, he didn't have any trouble."
"We worked on finding the critical points of functions by finding the first derivative and setting it equal to zero. We then transitioned into antiderivatives and how to solve for the integration constant C when given an initial condition. We got through quite a few problems and even covered concepts the student hadn't seen in lecture yet such as u-substitution."
"We covered basic limits and derivation techniques like the product rule and the quotient rule. The student had some questions about why calculus is important, as well, so we had a short discussion about what it's used for. His attitude was good; he found some relief in the strict rules that must be followed for taking derivatives."
"We covered limits, primarily focusing on reducing the order of quadratic equations in fractions. The student kept up consistently with the problems, and she understood the concepts of limits, continuity, and the algebra of the problems as well. We'll be moving on to logarithmic and trigonometric limits in the next session to prepare for derivatives."
