Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student has a test on Tuesday so I brought him a practice exam with related problems. He did quite well on the practice exam. When we finished going over the practice test, we did another quick review of operons, conjugation, and transduction."
"We worked on understanding the concept of IR spectroscopy. We learned how to use this method to distinguish different isomeric compounds. We then began to discuss mass spectrometry and using it in combination with IR to further elucidate the structure of compounds."
"We reviewed the student's homework about equilibrium, especially calculations of equilibrium constants, conceptual questions and Le Chatelier's principle. We didn't encounter any problems."
"The student and I had a great session. He brought several past tests and quizzes that he had not performed well on in the past. Most of the subjects that he was struggling with were stoichiometry problems and dimensional analysis. I showed him a method that I use to keep track of all the steps involved and to answer the questions correctly. After doing several practice problems, he's feeling much better about the material. Our next session is scheduled for Sunday."
"I met with this student to go over a number of topics including electrostatics and a review of the past topic of atomic theory. In electrostatics, he is able to differentiate the field from the force equation and to solve those problems readily. He seems to understand the superposition principle fairly well. I am very sure he understands charging by induction and by conduction. We will see how he does on his upcoming exam on Friday."
"We continued our review for the student's physics exam covering torque, angular momentum, moment of inertia, and other rotational concepts. Using practice book problems, we worked extensively on calculating the cross product using the general equation. He now feels quite confident in his ability to find cross products when solving for angular momentum or torque. He will complete the rest of this homework assignment and will identify problems for us to review for our last session before his exam."
