Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I reviewed the last chapter (conic sections) and started this one - sequences and series. This chapter is fairly straightforward and he said made more sense than most of what he's done this semester."
"We discussed the concept of limits, and we did some advanced work with parabolas and composite functions. In Spanish, we discussed study skills, vocabulary, and the subjunctive tense."
"We first covered how to determine whether a function is odd or even, then went over a worksheet of practice problems. We went over how to find the average rate of change for a function over intervals, both for fixed and variable intervals. We also went over domain and range of functions, as well as finding zeroes, minima and maxima, and areas where a function is increasing or decreasing. We went over her homework problems. The student had a strong grasp of most of the material, so we skipped some of the problems she was confident about and instead filled in the gaps a bit. I feel like she showed improvement over the session, but for the most part she already had a decent grasp of most of the material."
"This was a pretty chill lesson! The student seems pretty on top of her material now, so we just have to stay that way! We were just doing all the most recent subjects, which is geometry, arc lengths and unit conversions."
"I had a good session with this student. We worked through a problem set about sampling distributions of differences of populations. We also discussed techniques for using the TI calculator to get to answers quickly. She did well."
"As the student missed class on Friday, I walked him through an introduction to limits. We talked about the concepts of one-sided limits, "the" limit of a function at a certain point, and various ways a limit can fail to exist. We also went over an in-class not-for-credit quiz that he had missed on Friday, which dealt with the behavior of rational functions."
