Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on derivatives for logarithmic and exponential functions today. We worked through his current homework involving these types of problems. Then we started on the next homework, which dealt with using derivatives to find critical points and to determine the intervals on a which a function is increasing or decreasing."
"The student was feeling much better today and asked to review hyperbolas again. After that review, we moved on to parabolas to wrap up conic sections and then began Calculus proper with an initial study of limits."
"Today the student and I went over related rates problems and did an overall review of everything we have gone over. I also assigned her some good practice problems that will help her review. In our next session we will begin integrals."
"In today's tutoring session, we focused on doing trigonometric derivatives. The student is struggling with the problems. But we have worked through the problems slowly step by step. Towards the end of the session, he does the problems without struggle. We will continue doing more trigonometric derivatives until he is more comfortable with these problems. He has definitely made progress in these problems since the beginning of this session."
"The student and I worked on the introduction and review portion of her course. We looked over some Pre-Calculus problems and got a better grasp over functions and a little bit of graphing. We also smoothed out the details of what we want to accomplish for the course, which was to review what she has learned and then try to get ahead of the course. It was a good session and I am excited for the next."
"The student and I met for the first time yesterday evening to discuss a few small points that weren't working for him. When I was selected to be his tutor I was told he had an 89 in the class, but the news of me helping him seems to have now magically boosted his overall grade to a 91. We worked on Continuity and the Chain Rule tonight."
