"We went through his homework, step by step, explaining core concepts over potential and kinetic energy. He is to send me his next home work assignment as soon as he gets it, as well as write out all the equations and the general form of the problems for that chapter."
"The student and I worked on decimal-to-hexadecimal conversions. He had a hard time seeing place value in different base systems (i.e.. 16^2, 16^1, 16^0) as well as working with the remainder rather than the fractional equivalents (i.e., .5 rather than a remainder of 8)."
"In this session, we focused on the student's physical science course, reading through a chapter about chemical bonds. There was a lot of overlap between this chapter and the previous chapter on the periodic table, especially since I had used bonding as a way to better explain many of the concepts previously introduced. Because of this, many, of the topics we discussed today were a review from our previous science session. Some key points were the use of chemical formulas, electron dot diagrams, and the difference between covalent and ionic bonds. One new piece of information we spent a bit of time dissecting was the idea of polarity. The student better understood it after we went through a few examples using illustrations in the book."
