Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We specifically covered finding angles, speeds, work done by forces ,and changes in kinetic energy for the three types of collisions. The student's attitude throughout the whole session towards the material was great. I included a trick on how to match up the right trig function with the components."
"Tonight we covered a review of Chapter 32 covered last session and covered the systems and the organs involved in each of the body systems. We discussed the main organs of the digestive system. We ended the session with how bacteria enhances nutrition and how animals need to balance intake and expenditure. The student did great as always, and always is a pleasure to tutor. We will pick it up again tomorrow night."
"We reviewed the concepts of molarity and solutions, did calculations involving molarity, moles, and volume. We did several problems from the practice set of problems available on the website. The student seems to understand most of the problems and was able to solve them with a little coaching."
"Tonight we looked at series and parallel resistor circuits with circuit analysis. I gave a method to help remember the relationships in each situation in order to make it more easy. Specifically we calculated the equivalent resistance, the directions of current and the voltage drops on specific resistors. Also, we did a small amount of Mesh analysis for a circuit with 2 batteries in it."
"For this session, we covered some physics and some calculus. In regards to physics, we covered the concept of resistors in series and in parallel. The student understood the concepts pretty well already, so we just reviewed what the differences were between the two setups. In regards to calculus, we went over the concept of solids of rotation. He had a good understanding of the topic, but was a little shaky on some parts. We then reviewed those parts, and his understanding improved. He can do these types of problems on his own now."
"The student and I worked on studying for a large upcoming exam. We covered evolution, discussing the major aspects of evolution that allowed for terrestrial life. We covered a small bit of plant biology as well."
