Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we continued and finished going over concepts relating Rolle's Theorem along with Mean Value Theorem. We then got to problems relating applications of the two theorems and some practice problems relating proofs using the two theorems. We were able to finish the entire section and as a result, we finished another module. We are making progress towards Calculus pretty quickly without any particular issues so far. The student is great and is doing exceptionally well."
"We continued going over her homework assignments specifically the parts covering related rates. She was needing the most help with setting up the problems; finding the equation that relates the properties that you will then find the rates of. This is the hardest part in my opinion and she was coming along just fine."
"Today we reviewed the material for her test on Wednesday. She has already started studying quite a bit and seems extremely organized and well prepared."
"The student has a quiz tomorrow on free response questions so we practiced doing a few. We only did free response questions on topics that she as already covered (i.e. analyzing graphs of f, f', implicit differentiation, and position of a particle). We got through a few of these questions and she was able to understand the concept of each one."
"In this session, the student asked for help with his calculus class. We went over several problems dealing with how to find extrema and ranges of increasing/decreasing of a function by using the derivative of the function. In regards to his chemistry, he mentioned that our work in the last session had been very helpful and that he was having a much easier time with chemical equilibrium concepts. He mentioned that he was helping his classmates learn the material and that he was often the only student that understood the problems."
"Tonight, the student and I practiced integration with partial fraction decomposition. I had to re-teach him how the decomposition part of the process worked, but he soon got the hang of it."
