Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we did a quick review of asymptotes, then we covered calculating the work done by a force, the work due to gravity, and problems on the work required to pump water out of a sphere radius of 4 meters and out of an inverted cone 10 ft high with a 4 ft base and filled only 8 feet deep."
"We covered problems on Riemann's sum and definite integrals. We solved problems from his homework on these two major concepts and I provided him with a basic understanding of the aim of calculating both those values in a practical sense. Once he understands it he is extremely capable at solving these problems."
"Today we were studying for the student's calc test on differentiation. We spent most of the time working on word problems dealing with relative rates. We also discussed implicit differential equations. We then went on to do a variety of practice problems from the chapter review."
"We covered logarithmic differentiation including functions that are combinations of logarithms and trigonometric functions. We also looked at a word problem involving the differentiation of an exponential function. The student needs to review the properties of logarithmic/trig functions and practice working out problems step by step."
"The student and I covered the various convergence and divergence tests for infinite series, linear differential equations with given rates, and trigonometric substitution. There were no grades involved and this was a one-shot session, but I believe he had a firm grasp on the material and only needed to fill a few gaps and get some reiteration on a few points. I provided a few examples and forms to look out for when deciding whether to use trig sub for him to study."
"The student and I reviewed him Calculus homework which covered Ordinary Differential Equations and initial value problems. The problems were based on exponential growth and decay so he knew how to solve the problems once the calculus was done. He has a pretty good grasp of the material. He could use some more practice integrating with u substitution."
