Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today was spent reviewing for the student's exam on waves, sound, and light. We spent the session going through a practice test provided by her professor. The topics covered included the properties of waves, standing waves, harmonics, wave velocity, light, diffraction, and plane mirrors. She has a good handle on the equations necessary. We reviewed pretty thoroughly, and she feels confident about the material."
"Today was a long session due to the nature of the homework. This one involved projectile motion air resistance and sliding problems. The student had some gaps remembering the projectile motion concepts of physics. Therefore, we spent a good amount of time reviewing fundamental vector calculus. We have to meet more frequently to ensure she not only has very solid foundations but that she's also keeping up with the class. I'm not worried because I know she is going to make time for it."
"The student and I discussed a rather difficult wave mechanics problem, which required some extended proofs starting with Maxwell's equations. After successfully explaining this problem, we began to tackle a few different electromagnetism problems. Primarily, these problems dealt with Lenz's law and specific applications like generators."
