Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Covered shortcuts to derivatives and the meanings of a derivative graphically for each function. Also went over the product, quotient, and chain rules involving derivatives. Also provided them with 2 cheat sheets for functions and derivative shortcuts."
"We reviewed trigonometry, including the law of cosines and sines. We did problems from online that applied the law of cosines and sines to real scenarios."
"We went over limits as well as piecewise functions. I will be sending him math problems to complete."
"Today, the student and I studied specific topics that would appear on his exam tomorrow. We went over optimization problems, linearization problems, and some finding extrema functions. It seems that he is getting a better understanding for derivatives, and he's able to better recognize when to use them appropriately to solve problems. He says he feels confident about the exam, and I think he will do very well."
"Today, the student and I worked on the beginnings of integration. We looked at antiderivatives using the power rule, constant multiplier rule, addition and subtraction rules, e, and ln. We peeked ahead at the substitution rule, but that will be taught in the weeks to come."
"The student's calculus teacher provided me with the first semester final exam, so I reviewed the topics with her that she missed on the test. We reviewed continuity, discontinuity, differentiation, tangents with horizontal slopes, limits of trigonometric functions, and limits of rational functions."
