Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Covered introduction section on exponential functions, went over exponent rules and discussed how to solve simple exponential equations."
"Final exam review. Integration techniques (integration by partial fractions) and sequences/ series review. Good luck with final!"
"We worked on solving two variable systems of equations, mostly with the substitution method but we did some introduction to the elimination method as well."
"We continued using first and second derivatives to describe the behavior of fxns. We found intervals on which fxns were inc, dec, concave up/down. We also interpreted graphical and tabular first derivative info to reach the same conclusions. We also covered the Mean Value Theorem and applications."
"The student and I continued to work on her familiarity with trig identity proofs and solutions, refining her understanding of double angle and half angle formulae, along with sum of angle, and reducing power identities. She is making definite progress - we overcame a major hurdle in developing the key understanding that all of the trig functions have to be in terms of the same argument, and also with her comfort in using the substitutions allowed by the various identity formulae. I am confident that with some additional study, she will do well on her upcoming test."
"The concepts that we covered specifically are fractions/decimals word problems, multiplication/division word problems, and area of shaded region problems. I included study strategies in this session. I also left him with some addition/subtraction and math word problems."
