Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered physics: Fraunhofer single slit diffraction, double Slit diffraction, and Doppler effect (only works when speed of object and source is much less than the speed of light)."
"The student and I went over a comprehensive review for a test she had the next day at school. The topics included linear momentum; angular momentum, acceleration, and centripetal force; impulse; conservation of momentum; and gravitational forces between masses. She recalled the concepts from a previous session well, and did not struggle with any problems. I taught her the concept of proportionality, so she would know right off the bat how one variable would change if another changed in an equation. The big unknown was which equations the instructor would provide for her test, versus which she needed to memorize."
"We did the extra credit quizzes online. We also did his old algebra test corrections and then started to go over solving systems of linear equations."
"The student and I went over a broad range of subjects in preparation for his upcoming final. He wanted a little reminding with work and energy problems, and we covered some of the circuitry problems he got wrong in past tests. He knows most of the equations off the top of his head, and knows how to use them for basic problems. More challenging problems only require a bit of guiding through the steps, but he can do the algebra just fine once he knows what to do. Next session should be covering what we didn't cover today, as well as solidifying certain methods of problem solving with work and energy, and he should be fully prepared to do well on his final."
"We went over a practice physics exam. The session helped to remind the student of material covering a wide span of what had been taught throughout the year. There were certain questions where she needed a memory jog to get her going, but then she was able to answer them well."
"We covered a range of kinematics problems and Newton's three laws of motion. The student has good techniques for solving kinematics problems. There were some things we brushed up on since it has been a while since she has reviewed this material. Her study guide is an excellent resource to use as we prepare for her final exam and we will continue to use that in our sessions."
