Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"This was a productive session, and we spent the entire time working on a set of approximately 4 very difficult acid / base titration problems. The problems were about as hard as any AP level acid / base problems get, and the student worked through them well. He has a problem set that we will spend time working through on Wednesday."
"We started the session by going over a test which the student had just gotten back. We walked through the questions he got incorrect. He does a good job of memorizing the equations and can state them when asked but he sometimes forgets which to apply to a given situation. To improve on this we began working on testing strategies. The first is to start by listing all relevant information given. Then once that list is written, to write all equations that deal with the given variables. By doing this he will hopefully be able to see what equations are available to him in order to solve the question presented. After going through the test questions, we practiced the new strategies with some AP questions."
"The student and I had our first session today, so we first took a look at her syllabus and formed a game plan for the rest of our sessions. We uploaded her slides and went through each slide together, discussing concepts that were confusing or ambiguous. The session was great. We are meeting again on Thursday to pick up where we left off."
