Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We discussed SHM. We began with definitions of Periodic Motion, and SHM as a special case. We analyzed Hooke's Law, then discussed oscillatory motion in terms of extremes of displacement and equilibrium position. We discussed the energetics of spring motion, and then worked some difficult problems that bring these concepts together. We briefly discussed angular velocity and how it gets tested on the MCAT."
"We went over physics (electromagnetism and circuits) and biology (endocrine system). I decided to concentrate on physics because the student needed help understanding how to interpret electric/magnetic fields and how to use the correct equation for each of the problems. She had an easier time with circuits. In terms of biology, her conceptual understanding was strong, but we will work on applying biological concepts to passage-based questions. We will go over chemical kinetics next week."
"We went over a practice passage in biology. She did well, but we talked about her being very detail oriented which can cause her problems on her exam. She has a plan to go over material until I see her next."
