Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we continued to work on assignments and quizzes for the student's class, this time focusing on taking derivatives and determining the behaviors of functions. We practiced the product and chain rules extensively, and started working on logarithmic differentiation. We used the first and second derivative test to study the shapes of functions and the locations of any critical points, and discussed more conceptually the meaning behind how we found these critical points."
"We continued over the student's review packet taking time to understand the limit problems. We plan to over more reviews in our next session."
"The student wanted to go over his Calculus material. We worked entirely on estimating areas and volumes using infinite sums. We went through a few different types of problems that are common with this method, and he seems to understand the material well."
"We went through the final practice sheet. The student is doing very well. I believe she will do very well on the exam because she has put such an effort into studying."
"Today was our last review session before the student's final. We continued solving problems on a review sheet. The topics covered included limits, derivative of the natural log function, exponential decay, critical points, and inflection points."
"Today we reviewed his homework, practice test, and sample questions from the book to prepare for his midterm. He seems to have a better grasp on the concepts and is much more confident in the subject."
