Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student did exceptionally well on his lesson today. We worked through his entire worksheet problem. It talked about linear approximations and finding tangent lines on a graph that were parallel or perpendicular to other straight lines. He did very well in understanding the concepts, and he did a great job keeping track of the algebraic symbols used! He says that he's feeling very confident with the subject material. I think we're at a great place to keep working through the semester! Great job! Our next appointment is set for Sunday."
"The student did all of her web and textbook homework in one shot. The homework covered local and absolute maxima and minima, the Mean Value Theorem and a few other arbitrary things. She did well."
"The student and I went over a few calculus concepts that he needed to review for improved homework scores. He seemed to have a good handle on these concepts, and I'm confident he can finish the rest on his own time."
"The student has an exam tomorrow. We did a lot of practice/homework problems together and went over concepts. Then we did talked about some of the topics on his test - continuity, limits of infinity and did some more review problems at the end. The topics we worked on were continuity, limits, specifically lim as x goes to infinity, limits where it ends up being a constant over 0."
"We were introduced today to the new topic of the use of L'Hopital's Rule for finding values of limits. The concepts were in general pretty easy for the student to grasp and the student understood the concepts well. We went through all of the example problems and all the conceptual material, so all we have left for the next day are practice problems. There were no concerns for this session whatsoever."
"We took the opportunity to work ahead in his textbook today to prepare him for this week's lectures and material. Our session covered Implicit Differentiation and Logarithmic Differentiation. We covered the core concepts and methods for each, and he worked through several example problems; including textbook examples and problems from his homework sets. The student absorbed the new concepts well, with consistently implementing the chain rule. His attitude remains consistently positive and he is fully engaged throughout the session. I recommended continuing to work through the problem sets while considering doing more practice problems that require the chain rule to solve. I think that we need to keep tackling new material while balancing that with problems that reference earlier concepts, so that they all stay fresh throughout the course."
