Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I covered Riemann sums, integration using u/ du substitution, and rotating disk/ washer problems. She was very enthusiastic about improving her grade. I broke down each problem and concept as concisely as I could, and she picked up on most of the ideas. I encouraged her to continuously practice on the problem sets."
"The student and I covered several different applications of antiderivatives and integrals. Specifically, we completed problems that involved finding the area bounded by a curve and an axis, calculating the area between two curves, and representing quantities that evolve over time as an integral over specified boundaries. She made progress in understanding the proper approach to these questions, as the steps were laid out in explicit detail. She needed help a bit with specific integration rules, but these were discussed further, and I'm leaving her with additional resources to help in this regard. She managed to complete the math assignment for the integration section of the textbook without any errors."
"The student and I covered some of her trouble areas on her exam practice test, and in most of them, she now has a firm grasp of those steps which she understood only tenuously prior. I am comfortable that she can study all of her questions on her exam with an understanding of why they were solved as they were."
"The student and I covered the first derivatives of power functions and exponential functions. We used the first derivative to find the tangent line to functions and studied for her upcoming midterm as well."
"The student and I covered topics such as continuity, domain of a function, differentiability of a function, and several important theorems in calculus. We also worked on computational problems involving limits, derivatives, product rule, and the chain rule."
"The student and I covered various approaches to optimization to prepare for an exam. This included the second derivative test, elimination by substitution/ parameterization, and Lagrange multipliers. I also wrote up some notes on Lagrange multipliers, and sent them to this student."
