Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I started to review for her final exam and found that we needed to go over some of the key chemical reactions. She will have to spend a good amount of time reviewing those equations to finish them up. She also exclaimed that she got a 90 on her last exam, which is a big improvement!"
"This was my first session with the student. She is very bright and science oriented, so she usually does very well in her science classes. She has a Physics test coming up this week on friction and momentum, so those are the areas we covered. We started by going over the core concepts of forces and what they actually mean. She likes doing practice problems, so we did a lot and I'd like to get her in the habit of approaching each problem with the same set up. This would be to draw the diagram with the information given, write the formulas needed, and solve. Once she started following this more closely she was able to figure out any problem we did. Doing the math and using equation seem to be strong points for her. Her teacher uses multiple choice tests and likes to ask about concepts with math, so we'll be focusing on that also. Overall, it was a good first session. She is a fast learner and now that I have an idea of how she wants to do our sessions, I think she will see the improvement she wants very quickly."
"Today we focused on non-polar and polar compounds for our last session. I strongly believe that he will do well on his final."
