Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we covered Shear stress and strain. The student mentioned that the problem we went over the most this past week was on his quiz, and he got it! So, I'm really glad we went over it. Tonight's session was new material."
"We started with a brief introduction to Coulomb's Law and how to analyze simple charge configurations. Discussed homework for Coulomb's Law specifically and the student was able to handle it quite easily."
"This week, the student and I began by focusing on the material for her upcoming test. Her last test score was an 85, so she has developed confidence in her skills which I could tell in her work this week. We discussed problems that dealt with the different gas laws of chemistry. She shows improved understanding in these and has memorized all of the gas laws. In addition, we discussed converting between different measures for pressure and how to go about solving some of the more conceptual questions as opposed to the strictly mathematical questions that may be posed to her. We have another session before her test is scheduled, so we planned on reviewing a bit more then as well. We then moved on to some of the new material being covered in her chemistry class. This mostly focused on the electromagnetic spectrum and the relationship between frequency and wavelength. I had her solve some problems I set up and define what category of light each would fall into. We then looked ahead in her notes to discuss the different models of the atom and some quantum theory as applied to chemistry to make sure she was prepared for the next week. All in all, she is doing very well with the concepts as they come up."
