Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We talked about derivatives up to basic applications. After reviewing, it was apparent that the student understood the material very well."
"We went through the last bit of the optimization problems and then moved into doing limits problems using the L'Hopital's Rule. Also, we went through reviewing for the final."
"We covered the limit definition of derivatives and limits for real numbers and at infinity. She understands it with little difficulty and is progressing through the course just fine."
"We did a lot: we covered what derivatives meant, what a graph of one looked like compared to its function, how to compute them at points and in general using the limit definition, how to compute them in general using the power rule, and what the derivatives of sine and cosine are."
"Concepts Covered: 1) Using L'Hopital's rule to find the limit of a function ; 2) Differentiation ; and 3) Integration by substitution."
"Today we finished a challenging hw set. Optimization is always a little tricky, but we managed to get through it. The most difficult part was trying to understand how the problem is set up. Usually this involves a correct picture of the word problem. We also worked on more derivative applications. Nice work today on a difficult topic. I think the student understands it much better now."
