Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered condensation, evaporation, sublimation, solubility, mixtures, and colloids. We did an experiment looking at the solubility of salt in water that we will continue next session. The student had a great attitude towards learning and asked many good questions. We talked a bit about gathering materials for next session to make the most of our time. I left the student with a video to watch."
"In this session we covered gravitation and orbital mechanics. The student was very interested in the theory which was a lot of fun! She just needs to remember the governing equations, which generally involves a centripetal force in the form of Newton's Law of Universal Gravitation. We will continue to work on that."
"Today the student and I reviewed Newton's 3 laws of motion. We focused particularly on the 2nd and 3rd laws, drawing free body diagrams, labeling forces, and identifying 3rd law pair forces. We spent the last 20 minutes using the 2nd law and free body diagrams to solve problems. Since she will be on break over the next week, we will continue with our review, focusing mainly on mastery of free body diagrams and using the 2nd law."
"The concepts covered were KVL kCL, source transformation. The student needed help to apply KVL ad KCL to find voltage or current going through a resistor. The student was very confident during the session. The strategy I used was to break down each problem in a step-by-step process."
"We covered predicting the products of a reaction, the definition of different types of reactions, balancing, stoichiometry, limiting reactant problems, and molarity to prepare for the student's test next week. She was initially confused as to how to approach these types of problems, but after we walked through a few problems together, she was doing just fine. She seemed comfortable with the material and I believe she will do well on her test."
"The student and I reviewed for an upcoming exam that covers the ideal gas laws. She did very well on a quiz that tested the same material. She was very comfortable with the material, and we only worked to make her more comfortable."
