Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we did a final review: practice free response, chemical equilibrium, gas laws, vapor pressure, stoichiometry, kinetics. Score on test: 3/4."
"We did some comprehensive practice problems with dynamics, energy, and momentum to practice for her IB SL physics exam."
"Today the student and I went through a practice AP test together in preparation for her AP chem exam tomorrow. I provided minimal help, but provided clarity when she needed it. She was unable to finish the multiple choice section of the exam, and so afterwards we discussed a few things, including the timing of the test (essentially one minute per question), ways to quickly solve mathematical problems through estimation and rounding, and how to read test questions more effectively. When provided with clarity, she was able to answer questions, but without clarity she struggled to understand a good portion of the questions. Ultimately, she understands the concepts but simply needs to learn how to apply them and read the test questions. I've instructed her to look at practice exams to try to understand the questions and how she should respond to them. I've also told her that the test may be very different tomorrow than what she's expecting, and that she should not expect anything in particular."
