Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Worked through calculus review problems together, making sure the student could explain and defend his answers as we went."
"The student had some online homework that she wanted to finish. There were several problems that she needed to complete. We reviewed all of the problems except one, but I believe Christen now has the tools to do the last problem on her own. We will most likely be going over some optimization problems (story problems) at the next session (Section 3.7)."
"We worked on her final project, where she had to find the volume of a vase. We talked about the best ways to make measurements, then we worked through the math."
"We reviewed about graphs of sine and cosine, and then we talked about graphs of tan, cot, sec, and csc. The student's willing to try to understand the concepts. She does have a hard time to make the connections between concepts in trigonometry. She has homework during the weekend. I would like to get some feedback after she learned this section in class next week."
"Reviewed implicit differentiation, linear approximation, integration using power rule and substitution, vertical and horizontal tangent lines, and optimization problems involving function of a single variable."
"We covered two homework assignments covering multivariable functions and taking partial derivatives to find and classify critical values. By at the end of the session, the student was deriving with the best of them."
