Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered implicit differentiation and linear approximation. The student has mastery of the concepts and is now is trying to complete the package of 250 problems that was given to him. He has a generally great attitude toward mathematics in general and enjoys doing the problems. I taught him how to interpret some theorems to understand when they are applicable."
"The student and I discussed her review packet for her class. The problems were generally about functions, solving for x, and graphing. She was able to do most problems on her own without help. Multiple problems required interval notation for the answer, so we reviewed that as well."
"Today we began by covering population growth and compounding interest problems. The student did very well with these problems. We then moved on to solving exponential problems by using natural logs and determining the relationship between logs and Euler's number (e). He also did well with these after a review of the relationships."
"With the student, we mainly worked on her packet covering simplifying algebraic expressions, factoring polynomials, the hyperbola and its vertex, the quadratic formula, complex numbers, and the projectile motion. She is doing great in her problem solving skills and is a fast learner. She was able to solve most of the problems accurately with little or no help. The session went great and we planned to communicate to schedule a session."
"We continued to review for the student's final. I gave her some problems from concepts we covered in previous sessions; she was able to complete problems that asked to evaluate functions which was an area in which she had difficulty before. She still has some difficulty with the more challenging logarithm problems, but the basic ones she was able to complete. I am going to make up more practice problems for her to work through tomorrow night."
"Today we went over mostly quadratic equations. We reviewed at vertex forms and completing squares, and we figured it out by doing some practice on fractions."
