Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"His calculus AP test is later this week so I went back and reviewed some fundamentals of calculus like limits and continuity. We computed various derivatives and then did some u-substitution integrals. We also practiced some related rates problems. He had a little trouble with those but I believe the ones in his textbook are much more difficult than the ones he'll find in the AP test."
"The student is preparing for her final in College Algebra. She fully grasps concepts of factoring and simplifying rational expressions. The only areas that really needed work were completing the square and dealing with rationalizing denominators/radical simplification."
"We continued with the student's calculus curriculum by covering improper integrals and parametric equations. We went over how to solve problems involving continuous improper integrals (type I) and how to transform a parametric equation into a equation in Cartesian coordinates."
"We went over the formula for difference of the square and the formula for perfect square. We also finished the corresponding homework problems. The student is now able to consider and finish those problems by herself. I think more practice will do great help."
"We concentrated on his daily language and math worksheets. He completed all five days of his math and did well. He rushed through a few of the problems and did not complete them properly, so I had him go back and fix. He then did two days of his grammar homework. I had him re-read each sentence to catch the errors. I am trying to get him in the habit of doing this with everything he writes."
"Today, the student and I reviewed for his final exam. We covered variation of parameters, reduction of order, method of undetermined coefficients, systems of linear differential equations, finding eigenvalues and eigenvectors, finding the dimension of the nullspace of a matrix, linear transformations, subspaces, and span. We also practiced solving a couple of linear second order differential equations with initial conditions. The student definitely seemed to understand each concept quite well. I could tell he felt prepared for his final exam."
