Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over the student's homework involving the current and recent chapters. In order to do so, we covered reactions of epoxides and ethers, as well as conjugated systems and the Diels-Alder reaction. I explained how conjugated dienes are much more stable and explained what factors influence a Diels-Alder reaction. Overall, the student seemed to get the material extremely well."
"Got acquainted with student and began working on biochemistry information and concepts. Will continue to meet weekly in preparation for tests and general review."
"The student and I covered kinetics and rate of reaction problems. She had a solid understanding of the material and she was able to complete the homework assignment without much difficulty."
"The student and I met today to continue our discussion of his kettlebell swing and coaching system. He had particular questions about rotational vs linear motion, torque, and moment of inertia as they pertained to this exercise, and he wanted to understand them in such a way that they could be easily accessible to students and coaches. We worked together to turn complex ideas into simple concepts, like balance, counterbalance, and connection through the beginning of the swing. The student will use the things we talked about to refine his system and write more for us to discuss in our next session"
"The student and I continued working on projectile motion, taking special note of how to simplify the horizontal motion in such cases by noting the horizontal acceleration is zero. It was a challenge to keep all of this in mind at once, but he seemed to be making good strides towards that by the time we finished. He will continue working on his assignment over the next week or so."
"The student brought a friend to study with during our session. We reviewed mostly Newton's law applications for an upcoming test (ramp, pulley, friction systems). We also focus on getting the proper signs for the answers. The student had a good attitude! Strategies focused on organizing work, looking for applicable equations, and keeping signs straight."
