Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During this session, the student and I worked through some problems on the website that she likes so that we could continue to prepare for her upcoming test. Overall, it went well! We spent more time discussing the nervous system and how action potentials work and I think she's starting to catch on. She has a lot of material to get through, but one of her friends sent her a study guide so it seems like she has a better idea of where to focus her efforts than she did last week. Plus she has all weekend to study (the test is on Tuesday)."
"The student and I had a video session this evening to help him prepare for his upcoming exam, which focuses on adolescent development. We reviewed major concepts on the exam, including autonomy, parenting styles, achievement, morality, and identity. He acknowledged that most of the concepts on the exam are pretty intuitive. We discussed ways he could motivate himself to study, including re-writing notes and reviewing the way the information is presented on the slides. He explained that the test is all multiple choice, so he should focus on just being able to recognize major concepts."
"Today we started working on wave functions. We looked at how waves, springs, and pendulums are all related. After going through the properties of waves and doing some conceptual practice problems we did some practice test problems. Since the student does not get any homework problems, practicing problems will be important for continuing success."
