Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I gave the student some feedback on a lab report. We then started on some introductory work on the cell cycle- mitosis, and meiosis."
"The student had a difficult web-assignment for physics that had a lot of vector math. We went slowly through the first couple so we could fly through the rest."
"Today the student and I covered rotational mechanics and orbital mechanics. She is only dealing with tangential velocity, not rotational. She got an 85 on her last quiz and was very excited by this!"
"The student and I spent the time reviewing rotational motion, torque, moment of inertia, center of mass, and angular acceleration and velocity. We prepared for a test and quiz scheduled for the next day by working through numerous problems he had on his problem sets. In particular, we spent a good amount of time reviewing how to calculate the net torque on a rigid system capable of rotating. We also reviewed how to calculate center of mass and the importance of defining from which point it was measured. It was a pleasure to work with him; his attitude towards working and learning is admirable. I am looking forward to continuing to work with him on his physics."
"We finished reading chapter 11 and worked on questions on the textbook. The student did exceptionally well on the practice questions and now has a firm grasp on cell communication. Then, we spent time reading about food web and speciation. After reviewing the topic, we worked on practice problems to apply the knowledge."
"We began our AP review today, and covered the significant biological polymers, organelles of the cell, and the basics of cell signaling. I had the student brainstorm for each topic to see what she could or could not remember from these sections. We specifically went through the AP course/ exam description for each of these topics so that she would be familiar with exactly what she would be expected to know. We also looked for related multiple-choice practice questions to review. Most of the time was spent on reviewing polymers, specifically the levels of organization for proteins."
