Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"In this session, the student finished all the general chemistry topics for the exam. I plan to see how well she can approach a passage now that she has most of the content down. The student wants help a little with the math involved in certain problems, but practice should help with that. No huge concerns from this session; We should begin going through Chemistry shortly."
"The student and I talked about his upcoming test and he asked for my advice. I said that based on where he currently is with his studies, he would probably not get the score he is hoping for and should consider postponing the test. We talked about timing and how he should focus himself, then covered solid and fluid mechanics for the remainder of our session, with me going over the material and him doing practice problems."
"[COVERED]: We concluded our discussion of Sound. We discussed Resonance in strings and air columns. I took the student through the fundamentals of wave propagation in both systems and how that led to the creation of standing waves. I taught him how to deal with Harmonics problems in a diagram-based fashion that reduces memorization. From there, we discussed the characteristics of Light and examined its dual nature as particle and wave. We then discussed the fundamentals of Refraction."
"This was the last session. She scored a 34 on her most recent practice exam which is fantastic news. This means that she is retaining what she has been learning. Her exam is this Friday so hopefully my help has translated into a higher score."
"We covered acid/base problems. Again, at the beginning of the session we reviewed briefly. Unlike previous sessions, we held a discussion and then worked through problems. We will finish the worksheet on the 25th. We also discussed the trend in practice exams she has taken."
"We focused on Logic Games, both sequencing and grouping games. Specifically, we addressed questions that the student had struggled with in her independent study. We agreed that the student would take another practice test, and we would continue to work through difficult or missed questions."
