Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We worked with capacitors on this problem set, matching up geometric definitions of capacitance with ones related to charge and voltage. We worked on how to combine capacitors in series and in parallel, and calculated energy stored in them, as well. We also touched on Ohm's law, resistance, and resistivity, and how they compare to each other. There was a lot of information here, and I think I may have overwhelmed the student a bit, but she was also making some good connections and observations and had a good handle on the mathematics to solve problems once the formulas were set up. She is progressing well on this material."
"We went over atomic theory and naming compounds today. The student wanted to go over ions and oxidation states, so we made it a point to focus on those topics. I've left her with a review sheet with questions from both of our sessions from this week."
"We reviewed through the majority of the student's organic chemistry today. This included carbs, lipids, proteins, nucleic acids, functional groups, and more. She came out of it feeling more confident about the material. We will continue with cellular respiration in our next session."
