Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During our session, we largely reviewed material in preparation for the student's exam. Specifically, we covered synthetic division, as well as multiple problems in which we had to identify the domain, vertical, horizontal, oblique asymptotes, intercepts, and graphs of various ration functions."
"The student and I continued to work with the assessment test as it relates to her first assignment of the class. We worked on charts and scatter plots. In addition we covered correlation direction and regression lines. We were able to accomplish all the work with the assessment test that was required for her assignment."
"We started the session covering some old material like addition and long division. Then we continued to work on equations involving exponents and the different rules for working with exponents in equations. The student is showing much more knowledge and seeming more comfortable with these kinds of equations. We will continue working on them, but she is showing definite improvement."
"The student worked on calculus homework a lot today with only a small amount of chemistry. We looked over the equation sheet for chemistry and talked about a few of the equations. For calculus, we focused a lot on what the first and second derivative mean. We then transitioned to finding minimums and maximums as well as inflection points. Then using this information we found the graph of the function that fit the given equation and its key points. Overall, this was a productive session."
"We started going over the student's practice test for calculus. We went over the limit definition of a derivative. This is a difficult concept, as it requires complex algebraic derivations. We went over a few concepts, and the student seemed to understand them."
"The student and I went over her most recent quiz. We spent time reviewing derivative rules and properties, including the chain rule; exponential rules; and the relationship between displacement, velocity, and acceleration. We worked through problems that were more challenging and discussed simplified strategies for deriving functions. She did a great job!"
