Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We worked on the student's physics homework on torque and conservation of energy. I have suggested she look over her class notes and PowerPoints. The unit is definitely tougher than others and it will take extra time and effort outside of our tutoring sessions for her to fully prepare for her tests."
"Today we covered statically indeterminate beams. The student had a receptive and positive attitude towards the material. I explained the concepts of beam bending and equations leading to the problems."
"Today, we covered some basic fluid mechanics as well as a review of solving circuits. These type of problems will definitely be on the IB exam, but I think the student is making good progress in understanding the concepts!"
"We discussed a new unit on solids, liquids, and intermolecular forces. We discussed the various types of IMFs and how they affect the strength of the solid or liquid. We also discussed the different types of lattices and their properties."
"This week the student studied for the math portion of his test covering mechanical advantage, levers, and pulleys. Specifically, the student worked through two problems that I made up involving levers and then discussed block and tackle pulleys, their mechanical efficiencies, and how to calculate them."
"Today we reviewed for the magnetism exam. Topics were mostly forces and magnetic B-fields. We also discussed types of magnets and their practical applications. We will also meet on Thursday! Thanks!"
