Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed the student's assignment for science class, a dichotomous key and biological classification taxa. Using the student's class materials, we discussed the assignment and spent some extra time covering concepts and vocabulary, to make sure that the student was comprehending and not just copying. We talked about organization, and I set up an app on his iPhone to remind him to bring his materials home when he leaves school. After meeting the student, I have some ideas about how to cover his topics and encourage time management for our next meeting."
"The concepts covered with the student included rules with chords, tangents, and secants within circles. Additionally, we went over equations of circles and how to graph a circle based on the equation. She was very positive and receptive to the information I was giving. She has a test tomorrow, so we did a lot of practice problems until she felt comfortable with the problems and mastered them."
"We covered calorimetry and enthalpy, working sample problems from the student's textbook. We worked on calculations involving specific heat, heat capacity, enthalpy, mass, and change in temperature. Her firm understanding of the energetic concepts should allow her to perform very strongly on her exams."
