Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I reviewed his homework for chapters 3.3 and 3.4. These problems dealt with basic derivatives using the formulaic definition of derivatives to find them."
"We covered derivatives and the product rule. I gave the student homework on the product rule and the quotient rule. He is doing very well."
"We covered first and second derivatives, practical significance, and also the local extrema tests. The student found the algebra easy."
"We covered differentiation in great detail. We covered the formal definition of a derivative then went on to simpler computation techniques. We covered power, product, quotient and chain rules along with how to differentiate special functions such as e^x, ln(x) and trigonometric functions. Overall a very productive lesson that ended with the student having quite a few practice problems."
"The student had a few questions on the homework for Newton's method so we worked through those. She seems to understand the process and how to do the approximations."
"We worked through preparation for the student's midterm, covering concepts of periodic functions, recursive relationships between functions, and real-world exponential problems. He is progressing both in his understanding of the mathematics as well as his speed of problem solving."
