Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"He and I reviewed the quizzes in both calculus and finite math along with his current study topics in the class, namely Demorgan's laws and tangent line graphs. I introduced him to basic set theory notation and discussed the concepts of a converse and a contrapositive in logic. We will continue studying his past lectures and continue reviewing his first quiz on our next meeting."
"He has a test on Wednesday and needed a review of his test topics, specifically differentiation, differentiability, continuity, and limits. We spent the most time on questions involving writing the equations of lines tangent to functions at given points. At first, it seemed that he was very behind and didn't even know where to begin. But, after two practice problems, he got the third on his own without any input from me. He had a bit of trouble with the last step of the problem, using y=mx+b, but once that was cleared up, he said it made everything much easier. We planned to have another session Tuesday. He will have his math class again Monday. I encouraged him to take good notes so that he would know what to expect on the test and to write down any questions he had that weren't answered in class, so that I could answer them during our session. I also plan on emailing him flashcards to help him study."
"He was confused on a few lessons that he had in school, so I re-explained each concept to him, provided some examples, and had him do some sample problems. We covered derivatives of natural logarithms, position and velocity problems, and implicit differentiation"
"He worked on homework that covered derivation, the power rule of derivatives, the derivatives of trigonometric functions, and the derivative of e^x. She worked on problems that combined this rules."
"How to graph exponential functions and how to graph the transformations, also we covered how to find the inverse of an function, how to tell where the asymptote is, and what is the domain and range of the function. Then we looked at how to solve natural log and log questions."
"I covered how to calculate force using integrals and some indefinite integrals using trig substitution. I explained the process to set it up and the concepts behind it. Her attitude was good."
