Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Went over proportions and proportion distributions, independence and mutual exclusivity. The student picks up on concepts easily and is able to solve problems efficiently."
"Today the student spent the entire session continuing to go over the large math packet that is due this tomorrow. There were multiple problems in it covering material that they had not covered before, but her understanding of the material they had gone over was tested quite rigorously."
"We covered polynomial factoring and division. We discussed two ways to approach polynomial division through synthetic division and long division. The student had a good grasp of everything and was comfortable with all of the material."
"We covered the concepts of "limit" and "continuity of a function at a point," and we reviewed material from the previous session (i.e., derivatives involving the product, quotient, and chain rules). I explained the definition and conditions of continuity at a point, led the student in several examples for calculating limits, and introduced a few techniques for evaluating left-hand and right-hand limits. The student seemed to benefit greatly from the additional practice applying the derivative rules, and he is now confident about acing his exam tomorrow morning. I recommended to the student that he copy the derivative rules onto flashcards and quiz himself before bedtime tonight. He should also eat a hearty breakfast and complete a quick review of covered concepts before taking the test in the morning."
"We worked on Chemistry and Calculus today. The student finished all of the chemistry homework, which was focused on frequency/wavelength and energy equations. We also looked at how to find the energy of a photon created when an electron jumps down energy levels. We finished chemistry by going over orbital theory and how it works. We then transitioned to Calculus, specifically working on business applications of calculus. We also did a few problems involving tangent lines and how to find the point where the tangent line is parallel to another line."
"Today, we reviewed material in preparation for the student's quiz tomorrow. We covered a variety of optimization problems. Then, we looked at related rates. She was not familiar with the last topic and needs to review more to be prepared for the quiz. I gave her homework to work on related rates before the quiz."
