Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We started off by covering what's she prepared so far, and look at her strengths and weaknesses. As acid/base problems were tricky, we first covered the concepts of Acids and Bases, including acid/base definitions, strong acids/bases and their calculations, weak acids/bases and their calculations, and titrations/buffers and their calculations. We finished up by working on a verbal section together with a focus on understanding the passages and working through problems carefully."
"We reviewed new material on Newtonian mechanics. I walked her through a number of practice problems and assigned the remainder for homework."
"This session focused on answering last minute questions before the student takes the test on Thursday. Conceptual concerns with physical sciences were discussed as well as how to best spend the three remaining days before the test."
"Today, the student and I first restructured her schedule for the week to make sure she had adequate time to cover all of the remaining material before her exam while still budgeting time to rest and relax. We then talked about her verbal practice passages and if there are any consistencies in the questions or types of questions that she's been getting wrong. We determined that her understanding of the passage was the determining factor for her getting the majority of the questions correct or incorrect. We then spent the rest of the session reviewing concepts in electrostatics and electromagnetism and doing practice questions on topics such as point charges, electric fields, Coulomb's Law, Faraday's Law, magnetic fields, magnetic flux, and Lenz' Law."
"The student and I reviewed MCAT chemistry and physics, including electric circuits, fluid flow, galvanic/concentration cells, colligative properties, boiling point, and vapor pressure. We will review acid/base and titration curves on Thursday."
"We discussed the client's situation, and general test format; she took a 3-subject diagnostic test. Then we discussed methods for solving logic games and reviewed different types of games, and solved practice questions in each. I left her with additional practice questions for each type of game."
