Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student has the second part of her physics test tomorrow, so we focused on that. Her test will be all multiple choice, so I looked through the practice problems dealing with sound and Doppler effect that were on the site, and she did very well! She was able to understand and complete all of the problems I found, no matter how difficult they were rated."
"We covered concepts that will be on the student's exam tomorrow. Concepts included osmosis, endothermic and exothermic reactions, heat, enthalpy and solutions. We covered all points that she had questions on from chapter 11, including a worksheet that was given to her in class that was used as a study guide for the exam. She seemed much more comfortable with the material at the end of the session."
"The student was very good, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. We covered the basics of torque and angular momentum. We went over several sample problems to prepare for her class next week on torque and angular momentum."
"Today, the student and I continued with more math practice in preparation for his exam on Wednesday. We first began with checking up on his organizational skills. He started using his big calendar more and got a smaller planner from his mom. He is definitely making steps in the right direction. For math, we went over the Pythagorean Theorem, distance formula, and square roots. He mentioned that he wanted more practice, so I will email some practice worksheets to his father. He knew all the major concepts for his test, and all he needs is some practice. Overall, the session went very well!"
"We covered the structure of atoms and molecules and the components of the periodic table. The student was struggling with predicting what compounds form in reactions and the goal of today was to give him a better understanding of why certain elements react with other elements. He did very well with it, and we will continue on this subject in our next sessions."
"We went over the student's worksheets for intermolecular forces (network covalent, metallic, ionic, covalent- dipole/hydrogen/dispersion) and gas laws that were given to her by her teacher. She has a decent knowledge of all concepts; she just needed to have some of the more difficult concepts clarified for her. She will continue finishing the packets and will ask for another session if she believes she needs additional help with the concepts."
