Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on minimization and maximization word problems. She had a number from her homework that the TA had quickly gone over during subsection, so we went through the problems and talked about how to set them up and the patterns between each problem. She was getting much more comfortable with the problems by the end."
"Today's material was further review of semester material in preparation for the student's final. We started with identifying and calculating values for minimums and maximums. This was followed by reviewing exponents (simplifying expressions that use negative, fraction, or complicated exponential forms)."
"This session, we worked on determining the ranges of x values that a series dependent on x is convergent. We focused on using the ratio test to determine this. The student is getting better at quickly identifying the fastest way to do the problems."
"In tonight's session, we worked on volume integration using disk and washer method. We determined points of integration and evaluated integrals in terms of both the variable x and y. After the student completed the assignment, we worked on some electromagnetic wave problems for his Physics assignment."
"Focusing on integration including u-substitution and parts. Completed many homework problems. Also showed the student that during integration by parts with a polynomial that tabular integration simplifies the process. She has very good knowledge of the concepts."
"Today, I finished going over the test with the student. I helped identify her mistakes. She takes her final on Tuesday. I will prepare her for that when we meet on Monday."
