Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered more on rotational dynamics. We revisited some of the online problems we did together last time. Had to correct a couple of answers to the homework, which had to do with a stone attached to a string and it swung in a circular path. I had to point out that there's no torque applied in that situation. After going through the online problems, we did a few textbook problems on rotational kinematics. These problems just ask how much a body rotates in 10 second or what is the angular speed in 2 seconds"
"Today we went over a review sheet of basic kinematics. The student said that his teacher hadn't gone over some of the material so I showed him how to manipulate the linear displacement equation. He picked it up pretty quickly and we moved seamlessly through the rest of the exercises. He has a strong grasp on the physics we've been working on, and I expect he will do very well on his next test."
"The student is working on vectors and projectile motion, and so we began with an introduction to vectors and scalars and defined some scalar and vector quantities. We then worked on some review problems for her upcoming physics test on Monday. She has the basic idea behind vectors and scalars and just needs some practice."
