Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I spent the first hour reviewing homework. The subjects covered included heat, energy, and ideal gas law. Afterwards we covered a practice test. This test covered a range of topics, including work energy theorem, kinematics, ideal gas law, and rotational motion. The student felt confident with the covered material, and a lot more aware of what they need to review."
"The student and I went over old notes and reviewed the TCA (Krebs) cycle and some information on general redox reactions. We will meet two more times before his last test and I believe he will be prepared if we do. His score on his second midterm was %20 higher than the first, so after reviewing old material, he should do well on the cumulative."
"The student and I working on preparing for the upcoming AP test. We focused on Systems Biology and DNA/RNA/Protein topics. Next session we will focus in depth on Plant Biology, as that is the only topic that hasn't been covered in detail in class."
"We reviewed the difference between T1, T2, STIR and FLAIR images. We also talked about test taking techniques and why they are used and how they can improve your grade. He asked for the most common spinal and brain abnormalities that I will put together for him to go over at our next meeting."
"1) The concepts we covered were the following: a) Relative motion, b) Linear and angular momentum, c) Analyzing a Collision and spring problem.2) The student needed help with reviewing the concepts for his upcoming exam.3) The student was committed to getting a better understanding of the concepts.4) The student seemed to get a better understanding of the concepts."
"We reviewed momentum and finished up covering work and energy, as well as their application to simple machines and concepts like mechanical advantage. The student seemed to be struggling with potential energy, but the kinks were worked out well enough. I reemphasized the strategies and techniques involved in solving physics problems. I left him with a bit of work on his own. (1) complete 1-2 problems from the momentum and work units each and save the work for review and critique next session. (2) locate some practice problems or quizzes from the next three units so I can see what his instructor is asking for. And (3) read the chapters in the textbook about the next three units and look over some of the problems so we can jump right in during the next session."
