Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we covered more topics on derivatives: special derivatives, the power rule, derivative intuition, and graphs of derivatives. The student did a good job focusing and learning some tough material."
"Today we covered problems that had been difficult for the student to understand. Most of the work was centered on chapters 3 and 4. When she thinks a little about what she is doing, her performance improves. More practice on a range of different types of problems might be helpful in making the work more automatic. She will work on chapters 4 and 5 before her next tutoring session, with the anticipation of taking the first of four exams shortly thereafter."
"Today we covered several differentiation problems, including applying the product rule, chain rule, and quotient rule. I assigned more such problems for practice and then we continued reviewing the midterm, working on problems involving continuity and finding tangent lines. We both feel optimistic going forward!"
"Today we covered some differentiation rules, properties of linear functions, and some basic definitions. The student was struggling a bit with some specific procedures such as "finding the equation of a line tangent to a function," but he grasped the concepts after some further explanations and working through particular examples. He's definitely making progress and mainly needs more practice."
"Today we covered the majority of the first three lessons. Tomorrow, we will complete the next three lessons and this will be enough for the student to take her first test. She's been working very hard and is making amazing progress!"
"Today we covered the outline of the course as far as what the professor expects from the student and what is graded just so I can get an idea of what is expected of her to help improve her grades. We also covered some material from class, i.e. interval notation with domain and ranges of functions."
