Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I first worked on some math for an upcoming mid term. We practice some factoring and completing the square. She was very comfortable with this and all of the other material that we reviewed. We then worked on a history essay that examined the use of solar power. Her structuring was the only thing she needed to work on, and it was well aligned by her by the end of the session."
"We are going through the topic list for the CLEP test. I will be bringing some sample problems at the next session for us to work on. I think tomorrow we need to focus on stoichiometry and calculating pH."
"The student and I reviewed science and design projects. We covered how to research primary and secondary articles online. Research concepts included using particular school-provided online databases, key words and phrases, and how to determine which articles to use or not use. She was able to demonstrate this skill without much assistance after I taught her the concepts."
"Today, the student and I worked on potential and kinetic energy and visualization of displacement. She was diligent and pointed out what should be correct to supplement instruction. I included the strategy of simple, detailed subscript labeling to keep track of variables. She understands the methods for problem solving very clearly."
"The student and I studied a practice test for acid-base equilibria and solubility. She was still having some issues calculating pH during titrations. We wrote out the steps and discussed when to do in each step."
"The student worked through the remainder of his packet, as I gave the beginnings of torque to him, worked through a simple scaffolding problem with him, and then we went through his torque problem similar to that on the packet. We moved on to a signpost torque problem, which is very difficult for the level he is at, but he managed to make it through it successfully. We ended with a typical ladder problem using torque as well. All in all, since I just introduced him to torque today, I believe he understands it enough to do well on the test today, should it be included. I recommended that he review his equilibrium problems and Atwood Machine example as well."
