Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I covered some very trigonometric-heavy homework problems that she had. In terms of ease, they were very mixed, and we were moving back and forth on different problems."
"The student and I had a good session. She has a quiz that she is studying for. We talked about finding tangent lines given less specific information, implicit differentiation, and related rates problems. In general she is doing well with the information, but she lacks confidence in her own abilities. She sometimes struggles with where to begin with these problems, but as soon as I give her a nudge in the right direction she can usually take the problem to completion on her own with few errors. We will keep working on this in our next session."
"The student and I had a great session. We first talked about thermodynamics and gases. With gases, we noted that the product of pressure and volume is constant. We then discussed heat transfer. In calculus, we spoke of visualizing the derivative and then learned the quotient rule. He does a great job of striving to learn the material very well and conceptualize it. I'm glad I was able to help him."
"The student and I looked primarily at chemistry today, since she has a test coming up this week. We focused on redox reactions and stoichiometry. After that, we looked at some online problems, mostly using the Intermediate Value Theorem."
"The student and I prepared for the upcoming test. There are two areas we should concentrate on in the future. One is to get used to processes and content of calculus compared to other methods of analysis. The other is to practice algebraic manipulations."
"The student and I primarily worked on fully understanding implicit differentiation. I explained what it meant to take a derivative with respect to a certain variable and how to handle taking a derivative with respect to a variable that doesn't directly appear in the problem. We briefly touched on related rate problems, because this was just introduced in class. We'll cover it more when she has more to work on from class. We also covered implicit diff. with trig functions."
