Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over practice exam questions, covering: how to find the order/age of rock/strata layers, the symbols used in weather reporting and Coriolis effect."
"We continued our review for the student's final running into additional kinematic and force problems. Most of the time was spent on work-energy and momentum in challenging combination problems. She now has enough familiarity to take on the hardest problems."
"We finished the review packet for the final, which covered ideal gas laws, stoichiometry, and kinetics. The student was getting better and better at identifying what equations applied to certain problems, and we picked up a few strategies for solving. One was to write out full units on each number so we could keep track and know which step came next. We also worked on a few extra practice problems for stoichiometry, and she felt more confident after we finished. Finally, we began doing some of the missing assignments, particularly those related to acids and bases and equilibrium. We figured out what she was going to write on her note card for the exam, including vocabulary and equations and nomenclature. She plans to finish the late work before our session tomorrow."
