Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I reviewed some math that covered factoring and completing the square. We then reviewed some biology and nervous system. She has already been tested on the material and did well; we just enhanced her understanding in case of a pop essay exam."
"We mostly did thermodynamic practice problems from her textbook calculating free energy, enthalpy, and entropy. She seemed like she understood a fair amount of the content, it was just applying the equations that stalled her. She attempted to work the problems and I would double check her work. Sometimes she didn't understand the "why" behind a problem, so we would pause to address it. She will work more on the assignment alone and raise questions she didn't get at our next session. For tomorrow, she will complete the assignment ahead of time, making our meet more effective and beneficial."
"The student and I worked on acids and bases today. This is a new concept for him and can be a difficult one in general. He completed a homework assignment that is high level problems, and he was able to complete it with a little bit of guidance. This section is more about memorization and I made sure he understood that before I departed."
"The student is a smart girl who is willing to learn physics and get to know the subject intimately. Today, we did a general review of our first three lessons, and I have to say, it went beyond my expectations. She was able to remember most of the material."
"The student and I continued working with sound (and more specifically beats) in this session. We discussed several problems and ways to address each type of question. We went over additional material that she brought from class to prepare for her upcoming test."
"We covered the ideal gas law, as well as the combined gas equation and partial pressures. The student seems to have a good handle on all concepts that we went over, and she beat the class average on her last exam, which was a first for her."
