Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I read and reviewed the chapter on the nervous system. He inquired about the differences between the central nervous system and PNS, and we reviewed their relationship in more depth. We also discussed the composition of the spinal cord, as well as the merits of "right and left brainedness.""
"This our 3rd session. First on Monday . Second on Thursday. All sessions went 1.5 hours. Students are successful learning basic pinyin, greeting and structures. Both practiced well and can already carry some function of the language. Job well done!"
"We went over how to draw derivatives of a function from a picture of that function and vice versa. We also covered how to find critical points, minima and maxima, double derivatives, inflection points and concave and convex. As mentioned before, the student grasps the calculus concepts very easily and quickly but struggles the most with factoring and trig identities. The actual calculus will take her no time at all, but the factoring will trip her up and confuse her more often."
"In this second session, we focused on the topic of moment of inertia determination using direct integration of an area under a curve. This is a fairly advanced topic in statics. This was challenging at first but I believe served well to assist the client's understanding of the topic as he was able to see why we make certain assumptions and how to verify those assumptions by analysis of other examples and figures."
"We covered the following: - Edited golf essay. I will review once more this week and the student will work on final edits (if any) at our next meeting. - Edited Migrant Worker essay. This was a school assignment - grade 70. Will review the student's changes and work on final essay next week. - The student will read Alice Walker's short story - "Everyday Use." The student will begin working on characterization essay at the next session."
