Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over elementary differential equations, specifically those that are separable, meaning the two variables involved are easily separated on either side of our equality sign. We talked about what a differential equation means and how it can be interpreted by changes in time. We solved a couple of easy questions and moved onto exponential growth and decay. We went over population growth and radioactive decay examples, which led to more rigorous uses of differential equations, namely population growth given a constraint and Newton's Law of cooling. We ended our session with a brief explanation of how these results are simply techniques used to find our exact function given its derivative form and a bit of other useful information."
"During the first session we want over limits, inverse functions and derivatives of inverse functions. During the second session we went over integration by parts. Overall this session went well. In both occasions we went over various online questions."
"We went over binomial distributions, geometric distributions, and confidence intervals of proportions and means. The student had a good understanding of the course material. She seemed positive about the material being reviewed. I gave her practice problems that would appear on her test this upcoming Thursday and she was able to do them."
"This week the student and I worked on her math league homework, and she seemed to understand the concepts we were discussing, which is great to see. Her progress remains steady, and she's headed on the right track."
"Today we worked on lesson 67. We calculated the surface area of prisms and pyramids. We also worked on simplifying problems calculating angles, some word problems, and using unit conversions."
"The student is working through a self-paced college mathematics course. Today our session focused on reviewing solving equations that require 1 step (x+2=8), 2 steps (3x+3=18), and 3 steps (2x+6=3x+2). Working 3 step equations seemed especially difficult so we talked about evaluating expressions (5+7, 5x+7x, 3+2, 3x+2x, 7-4, 7x-4x). I also discussed course pacing with the student to ensure completion."
