Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
We spent the session reviewing all of the electromagnetism unit in preparation for the student's test on Wednesday. We did many practice problems covering this unit. We also reviewed how to solve problems involving circuits of resistors.
The student and I met for the first time to go over her Physics assignments. We worked through some review problems about circuit diagrams.
The student and I worked on homework problems from Chapter 12, involving static equilibrium. We focused on how to calculate all of the net torques, and forces in both x and y directions, and then setting those equal to zero in order to develop systems of equations to solve for unknown variables.
We looked at a few simulations to review static electricity and field lines resulting from various point charges. We also solved many practice problems using Ohm's Law, as well as power and energy equations.
Today's topic was about simple harmonic motion. We started off with definitions of peaks, valleys, period and frequency. Then we moved to basic spring equation and determining different parts of the equation. Lastly we covered simple harmonic motion calculation in spring systems.
Electric potential, voltage, capacitors. explained the class notes, had him explain what he knew, and clarified concepts. Went through hw. Seems like he knows what he's doing, understood the problems
The student and I started off by looking over some of his recent already-graded homework on circuits to examine and correct his mistakes. We then studied the difference between series and parallel circuits, the advantages and disadvantages of each, and some basic notation of electrical schematics.
The student and I did the rest of the problems she was having trouble with in chapter 23. She is getting the concept well. I think we really got through a good part of the right hand rule with solenoids.
Attempted some unusual applications of physics, including ballistic pendulums. The main concept of conservation of momentum and mechanical energy still applied, though, so we set up systems of equations and solved. Other problems covered elastic and inelastic collisions.
The student had no homework, so we spent the session reviewing topics from class. These included sound, frequency, Hertz, pitch, intensity, wave properties, and decibels. The student seemed to have a good grasp of the topics by the end of the session and correctly answered quiz questions.
The first part of this session consisted of reviewing the student's own work on the problem sets from chapter 2. I am pleased to report she was able to complete all of the problems with little difficulty. Some of the mutli-step problems still present difficulty, so we spent some time working on problems that give variables from one equation, with the expectation that another equation be used to ultimately solve the problem. After reviewing her work, we discussed projectile motion, vectors, and Newton's first and second laws. If the student continues to put in significant amounts of work on her own time, I think she will see a great improvement, even in the short amount of time remaining with her class.
How can a tutor help you understand Physics?
Are you having a hard time remembering all of the equations in your physics course? Does rearranging them give you trouble, and are you not sure how to pick which one to apply to a given scenario? No matter what level of physics you’re currently studying, if you want to brush up on your skills, working with a highly qualified physics tutor can help make things clear.
These physics tutors don’t only know their subject matter—they’re also adept at explaining even the most complex equations and concepts in an intuitive way, no matter how you learn. Customized lesson plans and a teaching style tailored to the way that you learn are both benefits of private physics tutoring; in one-on-one sessions, your tutor can work with your concerns and learning preferences. Your tutor can come to your home or another location to work with you one-on-one at the time that best suits you. Prefer to learn remotely? You can also learn online. Your tutor can analyze your current knowledge and learning style before designing lessons specifically to address your needs and concerns. With private physics tutoring, your lessons will always be focused on the material most relevant to you.
