Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on principles of simple machines, such as, pulleys, levers, mechanical advantage, work, kinetic energy, and potential energy. We worked on the worksheet together. He was not afraid to ask questions and we seemed to work well together. We did examples together and he felt confident that he could finish his homework. I was very impressed with his math skills."
"We went over some questions he had on new material with electrostatics and circuits. We spent most of the session on determining voltage and current in complicated circuits, but we also discussed capacitors, potential energy, and transmission lines with transformers. He seems very interested in the material and understands the concepts well. I suggested trying another circuit after I left for practice."
"Student and I covered a couple more multiple step projectile problems in preparation for his extra credit exam tomorrow. I also gave him some quick and simple equations for those types of problems to hopefully help him with his exam. He is very fixated on plugging and chugging equations, because he's still comprehending what the equations are doing. I continue to reiterate the equations are applicable to linear motion. So for parabolic motion, both equations must be used. He just needs to keep plugging at it, as this material can be difficult but it is very fundamental to physics."
