Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over static equilibrium, center of gravity, tension, forces, etc. The student wants to do better in the material and wants to get an A in the class. The student had an easy time with initial problems."
"This was our introductory session. The subject matter was angular velocity and acceleration so the kinematics equations from an angular perspective. The student works very well with these equations. Sometimes she goes too fast and will end up not changing units so will end up with the right number but the wrong units. We worked through two different sets of problems as well as determining the center of gravity. We also worked several planetary motion problems and using the force of gravity equations to determine the gravitational forces on distant planets. We agreed to meet next Sunday at the same time."
"The student's exam on Friday will cover immunity, digestion, reproduction, gas exchange, animal nutrition, and circulation. We focused the vast majority of our time going over the immune system in detail because this is a very conceptual topic. It was a successful session as she was able to grasp the complex information."
"We completed acids and bases as well as worked on some state assessment review. There were some conceptual problems with regards to the different definitions of acids and bases. The student was courteous, receptive, and attentive. We recycled old strategies over a few regents problems. He is demonstrating significant improvement."
"The student completed three of her assignments. The topics were evolutionary change, the Hardy-Weinberg equation, and phylogeny. She seems to have a solid understanding of the material. This was more of an introductory session, but we will focus on memorization and application of the concepts during our next session."
"This was the first session with this student, and we worked on as much of his practice exam as possible; the material is comprehensive and spans many topics. Some of the problems require quite a bit of thought, it's a lot of material to handle over a few days. But I believe we can do it!"
