Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"1) We covered differentiation using the product, quotient, and chain rule as well as connecting the three together. We also covered the derivatives of exponential functions. 2) The student struggled initially with exponential derivatives. Once we went over a few examples, she was fine. 3) She has been doing very well with the work and has felt pretty good when we are working. 4) We went over every type of homework problem, and she had extra work to practice from. 5) I was made aware of her last test, which she received an A on."
"As per usual, we worked on the student's homework assignment with occasional breaks for side lessons. Importantly, we took a bit of time to review trigonometry, including how to use the unit circle to calculate trig ratio. She had mentioned earlier how trigonometry was an area of particular interest to her, so I hope she will use the intervening time this week to review these topics."
"Concepts covered today included derivatives and application of derivatives. The student did well this session; however, she must start showing her work. A lot of her errors come from not doing proper setups and minor numerical writing errors. If she writes her information out correctly, she will do well."
"Concepts covered: Finding limits using graphs, analyzing different types of discontinuity (removable vs. non removable), graphing derivatives and integrals of functions, and related rates. In this session, we mainly focused on how to interpret calculus concepts from graphs."
"Covered inverse matrix creation and partial derivation. The student had a positive attitude toward the material covered. Extra practice was provided in terms of matrix practices with inverses. A significant win was his improvement with matrix calculation at end of the session."
"During our session today, the student and I worked on preparing for his calculus final exam. We practiced finding the derivatives of some functions by using the product, quotient, chain, power rules. We also identified the derivative as just the slope of the original function."
