Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student has a few more tests to finish up before finals next week, so we studied for those. First we studied for her world cultures test on India and South Asia. She's already taken the map quiz, so we mostly studied vocab. We set up a quizlet and used it to play some vocab games, which I think helped. Then we studied for her science test on potential and kinetic energy. I pulled up an old review sheet she did earlier and quizzed her on the different energy concepts, so she'll be in good shape for the test."
"The student had a worksheet covering circular motion. Before starting, I gave her an alternate way of looking at circular motion problems since she was familiar with linear motion. She spent the rest of the session going through the required problems and some optional ones."
"We discussed material that was going to be appearing on an upcoming exam. Topics for this exam included: equilibrium in forces, introduction of various forces, free body diagrams, as well as two-dimensional projectile problems. Most of the work focused on the newer material, equilibrium, and practicing how to use Newton's Second Law to find the value of the forces in a system."
"We spent the whole session today studying for the student's final exam. We went over questions that she had in her homework, and did a variety of practice problems in work and conservation of energy. We also spent some time talking about escape velocity and black holes!"
"The student and I covered a few problems from his last quiz and then continued our prep of chapter 11, going over topics in advance of the class. We went over a couple of math problems in the chapter."
"Today, the student and I covered practice problems involving introductory vector calculations (sum, difference, law of cosines). After these 8 problems, we moved to his Ch. 2 homework involving time-dependent kinematics problems (average speed, velocity, position, distance, time). We worked through these in the same manner as the problems before, each working through the solution, and him asking and stopping if he needed any guidance."
