Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I looked over integrals of trigonometric functions. Specifically he wanted to look at integrals that would apply the trig identities that we looked at in our last session. He is doing great with the integration."
"We prepared for student's exam during this session. Specifically we looked at problems concerning linearization approximation and the mean value theorem. We did several practice problems together in which he talked through each problem out loud and if he got stuck, we discussed the answers together. He showed strong understanding and we developed a general strategy for the problems. We discussed how he would email me the content he wished to cover ahead of time for the next session so we could be as productive as possible. We scheduled another session before his exam."
"Today, the student and I worked through two sections. The first one analyzed Rolle's theorem and the midpoint theorem. We discussed how and why they worked, and then addressed the problems he was having trouble with. After we discussed it, he was able to master the material and we got through a number of problems. Then we moved on to L'Hopital's rule. Again after we discussed it, he quickly grasped the material and worked through all his problems."
"Today, we reviewed optimization problems in lieu of the student's upcoming quiz on that subject. Then, we introduced the topic of linearization. She completed the in-class problems and homework questions for linearization. Once she had the equation written down, she breezed through the material without any issues!"
"During our tutoring session we went over the concepts of initial value problems. Given a differential equation, find the solution as well as working with slope fields. Initially the student struggled with approaching the questions, as there was a lack of knowledge of how to go through the problems, but once they were broken down, he caught on quickly. Exposure to the problems repeatedly was a great approach that rendered great results as he began to familiarize himself with the problems. He worked on some of his homework, working on each problem until he was familiar. I am confident that he has a strong comprehension of the concepts."
"The student continued work on her online calculus class. She completed her quiz on derivatives and integrals of the natural log function and inverse functions. Next time we will continue with integration and transcendental functions."
