Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today, the student and I went over inverse trigonometric functions and their derivatives. In order to see progress in the student, he and I went over all the exercises he struggled in his homework. According we were solving the exercises, I noticed that the calculus material was mastered by the student, but the steps that followed in the exercises (which uses a lot of simplification and algebra 2) I left some homework for the student to finish it so that he can practice more of integrals and their basic formulas. I did not have any concerns with this session."
"We reviewed related rates. These are still difficult and I am recommending more practice problems. We also went over higher order derivatives which seemed to go by okay. We covered logarithmic derivatives which went over just fine."
"Started covering Calculus 1, specifically one and two sided limits, infinite limits, and finding horizontal and vertical asymptotes using limits, as well as finding the derivative of a function using the limit definition. Areas to improve upon include reviewing trig functions and values as well as the ongoing focus on graphing. Our current goal is to make sure that the student has at least seen most of the topics covered in Calc 1 when she takes it this fall."
"The student and I covered concepts including manipulation of logarithmic equations, solving equations with logarithms, evaluating limits with exponential/logarithmic/trig functions, and evaluating limits that approach infinity. In the future we will cover more concepts in calculus involving trig functions."
"The student and I reviewed topic in Calculus 1. Specifically, critical numbers, quotient rule, and some integrations. We briefly covered general integrations to be followed up extensively on our next meeting. I gave him some home work due the next time we meet. It is over general integrals."
"We talked about how to approach exercises in real analysis. I suggested techniques to prepare for exams and for proofs. He does seem to be doing great in his classes."
