Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered plant biology: double fertilization, endosperm, difference between fruit and flowers (especially reproduction), haploid and diploid differences, basic anatomy, antipodal cells, etc. She struggled with seeing the big picture when presented with many details, so I explained to her the importance of first focusing on the main points and then mastering the details. I instructed her to make diagrams of basic anatomy and life cycles. Her attitude was great."
"Since the previous session, the student had gotten the results from his math test. He had done well and was able to raise his grade slightly. During the session, we covered more of the gas laws, specifically dealing with the Ideal Gas Law and Dalton's Law. He was able to get the problems done and demonstrated interest in future topics. He struggled a bit with rearranging the Ideal Gas Law, but was able to correct it on his own. In addition to the chemistry, he covered conversions to radians from degrees in Pre-Calculus. Leaving the session, I am confident he will continue to improve and demonstrate it on future exams."
"The student and I covered rotational mechanics such as angular acceleration, rotational KE, Torque, and angular momentum. He seemed confident in the material when working on it with me, and I believe he will be able to do the same when trying these problems on his exam tomorrow. I told him to take his exam slow tomorrow, and go through the problems carefully so he doesn't miss anything, such as reading the problem twice, writing down givens on his second read-through, then finding equations for what he's looking for."
