Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We checked the student's homemade science test review sheet, and flipped through the book with him to 1) make sure he understood the mechanics/concepts of the vocab and 2) have him add in any information that was missing. In our next session, I will be asking the student to do a little extra work completely solo and then we will review his work together. We will continue to review the topics that appear in his studies to build up his confidence in his schoolwork."
"During this session we worked on reviewing for an upcoming test. This mainly involved going through a matrix that the student had created for the equations of work, heat, internal energy, enthalpy, entropy, Gibbs free energy, and Helmholtz free energy under different conditions. While reviewing the table we discussed some of the different equations and clarified when there were multiple equations for a slot. We also spent a short time discussing some of the rules of logarithms. We ended the session discussing techniques for studying and doing well in courses as well as differing mind sets."
"The student and I discussed the significance of energy fluctuations, and that for a large system of N particles which is macro canonical, ensemble the energy fluctuation is close to zero and for micro canonical it is zero."
