Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we began to review for an upcoming exam. We focused on kinematics. The student seemed a lot more confident with the material and only missed a few questions. I think he has come a long way since we began tutoring sessions."
"We worked on acid-base titration and net ionic equation problems today. The student was eager to understand the concepts behind them. He was familiar with the basics but was struggling with the mole ratio (acid-base titrations) and making the formula of products (net ionic equation). I let him do all the problems by his own hand so that he will understand the work better. I was helping him by giving some hints whenever he was wrong or stuck. We did the questions he already had with him and also I gave him some additional problems. He did a good job and have much better understanding of these topics now. He will do well on his quiz and he feels more confident now."
"Today the student and I were able to go over his most recent exam on velocity, acceleration, Newton's laws, and units. During the last part of the session, I found out he has an upcoming quiz on Monday over energy. During the last half of the session we went over definitions of potential and kinetic energy as well as how to solve energy problems."
"The student is reviewing for a test on rotational kinematics and rotational dynamics. I took a few minutes to explain the rotational equivalent of linear momentum and how to use it to solve dynamics problems involving linear motion. Then, we went through some textbook problems on angular momentum, and he seemed to be up on the concepts. His enthusiasm and mental acuity make him a pleasure to work with."
"The student was finishing up with test review on several subjects, as well as some homework on fluids and harmonic motion."
"We went over gas laws, acid/base and half reactions, entropy and work energy, and reaction heat calculations. The student is having difficulty with the entropy concepts and calculations, so we will focus on that chapter after we finish the general review."
