Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student was great, we went over some mechanics review and some electricity review. He tackled these with relative ease, so I figured we could look at some special relativity."
"The student took a test this week on circuits which she did very well on - she got a 91%. To begin this session we began by reviewing the problems she got wrong or had questions on. Her main issue seemed to be the wording of some of the questions. We also reviewed the relevant concepts for each question. Next we completed a review sheet that she was given by her teacher that covers the topics of circuits which we completed together. Again we reviewed relevant topics and equations in reference to this including the rules for junctions in circuits. She seemed to grasp the material well and only needed minimal help."
"Today's session was spent working on waves and simple harmonic motion. We started with the properties of a wave, including wavelength, frequency, period, velocity. We determined period as a function of mass and length for pendulums. We did a few practice concept problems. We then moved on to understanding the Doppler effect equation. Finally we worked on some of the concepts associated with simple harmonic motion, specifically the relationship between position, velocity and acceleration."
