Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered various properties of integration. The student now understands how to evaluate definite and indefinite integrals."
"Worked first with student A. I had put together a list of common topics so we went through that once again to ensure that he was comfortable with everything on that list. We went through some of the things that I feel are more challenging from Calculus AB, including things like related rates and rotation problems. We then went into a sample exercise book that he was provided by his school and went through methods of approaching problems that were provided in his book. After explaining several of the concepts from that, we switched and I worked with his brother student B. We also went through the list of topics and he had several more that he was uncomfortable with. We thus began by going over the definition of a derivative and finding derivatives from the definition, derivatives and integrals of both trigonometric and inverse trigonometric functions, finding maxima and minima and determining whether they are local or absolute, derivatives and integrals with logarithmic and exponential functions, solids formed by rotation and by other relational functions, L'Hopital's rule, Related rates, and optimization problems. We finished by going through many problems from the book. By the end of the session he seemed much more comfortable with many of the ideas."
"We worked through her study guide, focusing primarily on integrals and applying the chain rule. I also showed her how to quickly check her work using her graphing calculator."
"Just wanted to use the rest of his remaining time to finish up any last minute questions. We were able to get through everything and I think he will do well on his exam and class. It has been great working with the student, and I believe he has learned a lot over the semester."
"The student and I reviewed some of the more recently covered topics for his final exam. We practiced implicit differentiation, the Intermediate Value Theorem, the Mean Value Theorem, the fundamental theorem of calculus, indefinite and definite integration, u-substitution, Riemann sums with varying endpoints, and the limit method for finding the derivative."
"Today we reviewed Chapter 8 material for his upcoming exam. This included IBP and finding the volume of shapes modeled by functions. The student seemed like he understood both topics well and I feel like he will perform well on his exam tomorrow. We will have another session tomorrow night to go over material that he had trouble with on his exam."
