Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Conducted 30 practice problems with electrochemistry concepts. Understanding oxidation and reduction. Implemented utilizing the activity series as a tool to devise aspects of reactions. Completed problem solving for electrode potential and maximum energy."
"We went over proofs for most of the time. The student seems to be lacking some of the fundamentals in statistical proofs (CDF, integration, conditional probability formula), so it was slow-moving. I think he finally got the hang of it. We will meet again tomorrow to discuss Markov chains."
"The student has a pretty good understanding of the material already, it's just a very intricate course, so she needed some clarification. We went through each slide individually and went over any questions that she had on each. Most of the questions that she had were related to things on the slide that her professor didn't go into enough detail on. Next time, we will go over her slides from lecture 3 (the remaining slides) and lecture 4."
"Today, we reviewed for the student's upcoming exam. We went through a couple of problems that involved multiple physical concepts with which he struggled. One involved two objects rolling down a hill and determining which would reach the bottom sooner. The other employed Kirchhoff's node rule. I showed him how to develop a systematic approach to solving these problems, and I think he came away from the session with a better grasp of the material."
"We focused on cellular respiration, metabolism and energy for the student's test tomorrow. We reviewed in detail the steps of cellular respiration, went over the terms for metabolism and clarified the different types of enzyme inhibitors."
"The student and I covered subject matter from the entire semester. I gave him practice AP tests, both written response and multiple choice questions. I had him work through them himself. After he finished, I graded them, and then we went over the questions he missed. I gave him written responses to correct his mistakes so he can look back on them. I also printed off example questions for the AP physics test and sent them home with him. These questions have the correct answers so he can check them. They also has explanations for each problem. We plan on starting to meet weekly next semester."
