Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We worked through the first homework assignment for the student's physics class. It was mostly a trig/algebra/unit conversion review. She understands the material well and should be able to learn everything well this semester."
"We talked about the gas laws and worked a couple of problems. She had a good understanding of this already, so I left extra problems for her to work on her own with the answers. We went through a presentation talking about different types of chemical reactions. She had already read about the majority of them. We worked through some examples on trying to figure out what types of reactions were listed. I will spend more time on our next visit covering these reactions. We also went through a presentation on phase changes."
"Chemical equilibria and complex ion solutions. Went over questions she had about the topic and went through homework problems. The student will not be in class tomorrow so she asked me to go over the topics that she will miss out on, so we went over that and the homework problems. We also reviewed other previous topics she did not fully understand like Le Chatelier's principle and polyatomic ions."
"The student had just started trig in class, so I helped explain the unit circle to him. We worked through some problems he was assigned for HW, which had him find coterminal and reference angles when given an angle on the unit circle. He also had to find values of sin, cos, tan, csc, sec, and cot when given a point. He seemed to understand the unit circle and he completed the HW set with relative ease."
"This was the first meeting. We went over the student's first two tests and addressed the questions she had on it. She had questions, which I answered, on how many solutions a linear equation has and how to interpret a word problem into an equation to be solved."
"We finished up by reviewing a broad range of issues related to the class, particularly methodologies. She needs to go back and look at some of the literature (journal articles) to put things in perspective, but I believe she will successfully be able to address the problems in her final paper."
