Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over differentiation and the different rules of differentiation. I re-introduced the rules of differentiation to the student before going over the last 10-11 problems of the student's practice problems. The student seemed to understand how to find the derivative, but I tried to focus on doing the more harder problems for their test tomorrow. We ran out of time when I was in the middle of explaining the next exercise. Overall, it was a good first experience."
"We went over how to analytically calculate limits by plugging in the x-value into the function. If 0/0 results, we could divide the polynomials or rationalize the radicals to simplify and find the actual limit. We also discussed Squeeze/Sandwich Theorem and applied it to problems. She has improved a lot in identifying what needs to be done in order to solve a question. The delta/epsilon definition is still a bit confusing, but she understands what limits are and the concepts."
"We went over integration by parts, u-sub, and a derivative review. The student struggled with finding the proper u to sub within an integral. The student is passionate to learn the material. The student prefers to use classroom materials. It was an excellent session."
"We went over integration of parts. By the end of the session, the student was able to work on problems independently. I had him write out each variable and create what each variable represented. With organization, he seems to be more successful with his work."
"We went over integration over planar regions and elementary integration involving physical phenomena, such as work and density. We also covered general function concavity and rates of change, applying antiderivatives to graphs of functions that represent a derivative, and understanding integration and the different effects of applying some factor in the integral to a geometric standpoint."
"We went over limits and the definition of a derivative using limits. The student struggled but was able to get a basic understanding by the end of the session. He said he will continue to practice before our next session."
