Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we worked on more practice problems from the assigned problems as well as other examples from the textbook. We covered differentiation and related rates through volumes and motion, as well as other applications of first and second derivatives."
"Met with the student today to begin our sessions. We covered introductions to limits, their theory, and application to calculus in general. I went over techniques for evaluating limits and pointed out some helpful websites to help with useful algebraic and trig identities. He doesn't seem to have too much difficulty with the material and I don't see any trouble at the moment with going forward."
"The student is taking the second quarter of a calculus course for non-science majors. I spent the session with him going over and explaining fundamental trig concepts and identities, including the unit circle, graphs of trig functions, and identities. We also worked some trig limit problems using the squeeze theorem. Overall, he has a pretty good idea of the concepts. We will continue going over this material tomorrow morning."
"In this session, we introduced the idea of exponential growth and the number "e," as well as a few applied modeling problems. The student is always interested in real world applications. "E" is used as the base by which populations (as a general term) grow, die, and are distributed. We talked about exponential modeling, logarithmic plots, and statistical distribution, both at the macro and quantum levels."
"We reviewed integration by substitution and indefinite vs. definite integrals. We also learned applications of integration, including acceleration, velocity, and displacement. Finally, we covered the area between two functions (both vertical and horizontal rectangles)."
"We talked about trigonometric identities and how they apply in different situations. We went through several problems utilizing these identities, as well as multiple problems verifying that identities are true. The student seems to understand this material."
