Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During this session we went over work and energy as well as momentum questions. I suggested further materials to get practice questions from. Overall this session was good."
"We did more practice problems with work and energy. I strongly emphasized the difference between situations where work is done on something through an outside force and when conservation of mechanical energy can be applied."
"The student and I worked on work and energy problems. We covered the formula for work in analytically and conceptual problems that he had for homework. Additionally his homework touched on work energy theorem."
"The student and I went over work, energy and power. We went over several examples that involved work-energy theorem and the law of conservation of energy. She did really well on this topic and seems very prepared for her test."
"We went over centripetal force and the questions that the student had regarding those concepts. She seemed to just need a little bit of guidance in the right direction before she understood how to complete all of the problems."
"We reviewed and worked a little more with torque. I think the student is getting more familiar with some of the ideas of how to calculate torque and set up problems, and more practice will definitely help him, as well. Good progress."
"Tonight the student and I worked through some problems that she had struggled with on her last test. She was having the most problems with projectile motion, so we worked on a number of problems. She has other problems from her class to practice with."
"Tonight the student and I covered rotational problems that he expects to see on his next exam. He seemed to understand the material much better, and I tried to focus on test-taking techniques."
"The student's teacher gave him diagrams that correspond to interesting and tractable physics problems. We designed problems for these diagrams and attempted to solve them. In doing so, we reviewed forces, energy conservation and uniform circular motion."
"We covered kinetic and potential energy, mechanical energy and power. We went over a worksheet supplied by the student's teacher, and covered additional problems from a textbook that I brought to the session."
"The main topics of this session were energy and forces. We worked on conservation of energy problems for a mass on a slope, springs, and gravitational potential energy. We also touched on a couple chemistry problems because she has a chem test coming up next week."
"Today was my first session with the student. We worked on his physics review sheet for his final. We went over everything from conservation of momentum, conservation of energy, Newton's laws, kinematics, and collisions."
