Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today was my first day working with the student and it went really well. She was studying for a test that she has tomorrow on projectile motion. She picks up on everything really quickly. Once I showed her how to do something, she knew how to do it in every problem going forward. This evening, she completed her review sheet for the test. We talked about the difference between the horizontal and vertical components of the projectile velocities. Overall, this session went really well and I really look forward to working with the student every week. We will continue to work together on Sunday evenings."
"During this session, we went over the student's physics exam, which was an accumulation of modern physics, forces, work/energy, etc. We then looked at force questions. Overall, this session went well."
"The student worked on a lab report, particularly the calculations and the graph. She ran the lab in class, and it involved a spring, a cart and measuring how far the cart travels given a certain compression on the spring it is attached to. She used the data from how far the cart traveled down an incline to derive information about the vertical displacement and, as a result, information about the gravitational potential energy. This involved calculating the force due to gravity on the cart. This new unit is putting together concepts from throughout the year, such as energy and summation of forces, and she seems to be doing very well. She is diligent in her lab-report writing and her calculations."
