Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over the questions she got wrong on her practice Reading sections; then we moved onto Science and discussed what's REALLY tested in Science, the emphasis on graphs and data comprehension, and the different types of Science passages; we practiced a few sections and discussed strategies for interpreting the figures and data correctly, accurately, and simply."
"Initial meeting with rising 11th grade student and rising 9th grade student. 11th grade student: Reviewed his Math final from his previous year which ranged in subjects from Algebra 2 to Trig. Client was unsure of his Math placement this coming year. From his previous work I assessed and informed him that he would probably be entering Pre-Calculus if not Calculus this coming year. Session went well and lasted about 1.5 hrs 9th grade student: Reviewed notes from a preparation test for his Math final from the previous year. Material ranged from Algebra to Geometry. Session went well, lasted about 1.25 hrs."
"The student and I covered Chapter 24 to review and refresh on Maxwell's Equations as well as Electromagnetic Radiation. We went through the complete Ampere Law and the Maxwell Equation applications. We also reinforced the concepts of the radiation fields and their relationship with what we saw in the beginning of the physics course. This concludes our sessions for the fall semester of Physics."
"The student continued to study for his upcoming biology test on early life on Earth. Today we went over the importance of endosymbiosis and the eukaryote group protists. The student learned about the development of mitochondria and plastids. Then he related those developments to adaptive radiation and horizontal evolution."
"The student and I reviewed exterior angle relationships to a triangle. We used the fact that an exterior angle is equal to the sum of its remote interior in any triangle. She demonstrated that she knows this concept."
"We continued covering the student's notes and PowerPoint materials from class, focusing on long run cost minimization and how to graphically explain different equations and the relationship and constraints between the isocost and isoquant lines."
