Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered simple harmonic motion. Most of the problems involved vibrating springs, but some of the problems involved pendulums. Student continues to have a very good grasp of the basic material--just needs some particular guidance on particular problems. Student's attitude is excellent."
"The student was working on problems dealing with work, energy, and the conservation of energy. She is a very bright and upbeat student, with a lot of enthusiasm, and I think once she saw how to read what the problems were telling her, she got most of the concepts well. She is just now learning some trigonometry and only has recent experience with algebra, so that makes some of the math steps more challenging than the class probably expects. But I think with some help, she will get better at seeing how to algebraically solve for certain quantities and then be able to use her understanding of the concepts to effectively solve problems."
"Today we celebrated the student's first A in graduate school on the paper we worked on together! We then worked on her social justice journal on corporal punishment to children and cultural relativity. We also talked about the role of citations and research and the importance of background reading for graduate level classes."
