Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on a review assignment for his upcoming Calculus test tonight. He did very well with most of the work, even getting through problems he thought he didn't remember, without too much difficulty."
"The student and I worked on the basics of derivatives, why they are defined using limits, and on finding and characterizing critical values of functions. The student is great to work with, very attentive, and very honest about where he needs help."
"We went over her textbook homework and started on her web assignment homework. The homework assignment started to get into derivatives. The student has a test next Wednesday so we basically wanted to get through her homework so that we can spend the next two sessions preparing for the test."
"Today we went over a review sheet for the student's calculus exam tomorrow. Today I worked the problems she had, beside her so that I could see where there might help needed. The student did excellently! She has really got down the quotient rule and product rule, and is making excellent progress with the chain rule. I anticipate that she will do very well on her exam tomorrow, and look forward to hearing about the results."
"We went over derivatives, limits at infinity, graphical transformations, and trigonometric function composition. I have noticed tremendous progress in the student's understanding and feel that he is now ready to take the exam on these chapters. I have no concerns from this session and am glad to see the progress he is making."
"Met with the student today to continue working with his Calculus studies. He had a homework assignment that he worked through that was focused on applications of derivatives. He has a strong grasp on the actual calculus but still needs practice with algebraic techniques needed to manipulate the problems in a way that allows for the calculus properties to be applied. As such I continued focusing on ways to break down the problems in such a way as to clarify how to apply the algebra in order to minimize the chances at making a mistake."
