Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed the chapter on impulse and momentum. I emphasized the similarities between these concepts and energy in a previous chapter. We also went over 3 homework problems and I noticed the best way for her to learn is to reinforce what she learns in class with weekly tutoring sessions."
"The student and I worked on problems with magnetism, magnetic forces, and magnetic torques. We dealt with the right hand rule for forces. He was an eager and energetic student."
"During our session, the student and I reviewed various concepts relating to current electricity and circuits from her online Physics Classroom. She recently let me know that she got an A- on an exam we reviewed for, which was great to hear as we started by talking about some of the few problems she missed. We then went into the first topic she wanted to review, which was the difference in the behavior of series and parallel circuits. She had a lot of conceptual questions to answer from her classwork, and we worked through each one using formulas or principles of electromagnetism to explain phenomena that were observed during labs or described in thought experiments. The student understood all of the concepts very well as we both worked through explaining certain problems, and she recalled the key laws of physics or fundamentals of circuits from my explanations perfectly when she was summarizing the answer to a question back to herself."
