Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Covered topics in Organic Chemistry, Verbal strategy, and Chemistry. Reviewed organic chemistry test questions. Completed high yield problems in Physics. Reviewed stoichiometry and chemical preparations."
"Physics section: Covered acids/bases and solution chemistry. Brief review of periodic motion, optics, biology, genetics, and Hardy-Weinberg. Figured out organic chem problems. Struggled with conceptualization. Left with a lot of extra practice. No concerns, look forward to next section."
"The student and I went over her latest practice exam work, covering questions. The area in particular we were working with was wave motion. For Sunday, she is going to finish another practice exam (5) and we will go over electricity and magnetism in physics."
"Today we worked through practice problems in physics, especially focusing on passage based problems. The student feels that the practice problems are particularly helpful, so we will start to focus more on test questions rather than lecture material."
"The student worked on the self assessments, which we covered afterwards. In general, the Verbal, General Chemistry, and Organic Chemistry sections were the higher scoring ones, whereas the Biology and Physics sections tended to have more issues. Common concepts we covered included wave/optics, circulatory control, work and energy, hormones, and several other body systems. The assessments suggested areas that she could watch out for in the future; in the meantime, she will do practice test 4 which we will cover shortly."
"The student and I began to review the sentence correction strategy, covering the topic list, general strategy, subject-verb agreement, and verb tense. I assigned SC 1 and 2 for homework. Next session we will cover more sentence correction topics."
