Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"This was my first meeting with the student so we talked about what had been discussed in his class so far and some of the things that he was struggling with understanding. We worked on his homework and I quizzed him on some of the terms to make sure he was understanding what he was writing. He was pretty confident with how organisms broke up into domains, kingdoms, etc. but he struggled with why this classification had to be the way it was so we talked about that a lot. Then we discussed terms and concepts from his natural selection unit."
"Today the student and I went over p waves, s waves, seismographs, earthquake activity, chemical weathering and physical weathering comparing and discussing how they work in tandem. We also discussed river systems, tributaries and other water forms. We discussed landslides, mudflows and other destructive forces of nature that depend on land formation and precipitation. The student is doing great with the material. She just needs some clarification on the topics she is learning in the classroom. We are just putting all the pieces of the puzzle together so to speak. She is going to email me with what she would like to cover in our next session as well as letting me know if she needs some extra assistance on anything during the week."
"During this session we went over equilibrium equations, calculations of k constants and using q to determine which direction shift will go. We worked on questions the student had for practice. Overall this session went well."
