Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During this session we continued going over circuits. We reviewed a couple of questions in the assessment review. She seems to have a better grasp and has memorized the formulas. Overall this session went well."
"We continued our discussion on simple harmonic motion and waves. Even though we have talked about a great deal of conceptual background information on this chapter so far, the problems required the use of complex, and creative, algebra skills. I gave her the starting equation I was working, manipulated it for her step-by-step to get it into a useful form, provided her with the final derived equation and had her fill in the middle steps. After two tries she understood much more clearly how to use algebraic manipulation to solve for a problem with missing variables. Luckily, many of the problems were like this so she had a lot of practice with this skill. Next session we will continue preparing her for her exam and I will bring a sample test for her to work on as well."
"Stoichiometry, balancing equations, finding average isotope weights, and balancing redox reactions. Stressed the importance of understanding the concepts instead of memorizing steps. Practice problems are crucial in order to understand concepts."
