Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student started a new chapter on limits. Her teacher didn't teach the material and just handed out a packet of notes to learn the whole chapter. She was completely confused, so I spent the whole session teaching her all the sections and helping her with the problems. She learns new information quickly and easily, since she's very intuitive."
"The student was just having a hard time with applying the terminology of some of the word problems. I gave her a cheat sheet between position, velocity, and acceleration equations and definitions. Hopefully that helps with some of the word problems."
"The student was primarily interested in limits of functions. She seemed to have a good grasp of the various techniques required. We also covered how to determine the average slope between two points given a function and the secant line. She was great and should do well on her test. I suggested the best way to study is to do problems and will provide her with some to use. No concerns--she is very bright and should do well on her test on Tuesday."
"The student was unable to finish assignments in between our sessions, so we finished the homework assignment 2 and 3 from Unit 1. It covered rational exponents and polynomial equations. She and I had covered this in the previous class, and it was a good review for her. We had also scheduled the dates which she should finish the courses and completely finish calculus in a couple weeks."
"The student worked on finding the limit of functions as x approaches a certain point graphically. She also worked on homework that covered finding the limit of a function algebraic. She worked on finding the limit of radical, rational and polynomial functions."
"The student worked on her homework, which covered the first three sections of her textbook. We found domains based on setting certain parts of the equations equal to zero. We practiced determining whether zero would be included at the edge of the domain, which differed whether we were dealing with a root, a denominator, or a logarithm. We also practiced solving equations for one variable and composing functions from two separate functions - f(g(x))."
