Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"This session covered mechanical advantage (MA), work, and energy. The student and I reviewed online homework problems covering those areas. Working with those homework problems went well except for the those that covered MA (two problems out of eight). However, the student didn't have problems understanding MA. I'm confident that she can finish the MA problems on her own. The rest of the homework, which covered work and energy, was a blast, meaning that I was able to help her on them very easily. Overall, I think this was a good session"
"In this section the student and I went over his homework for electricity portion of physics. The student enjoyed learning the concepts. I left the student to finish his homework."
"We covered static electricity, and went over the homework problems that I gave her and the homework from school. She is a smart student, and she has been really great at conceptual understanding. The only little thing that she can work on is to take patient steps when she first sees a question. The calm and composed way through noticing the given factors in the problem and knowing what equations she should use to get the answer will not only help her in this course, but for chemistry and other courses in the future as well. She seems to be doing great in class, and I am so proud of her for it!"
"We covered some definitions and applications of matrices - as an extension of our last discussion around vectors. We went over some definitions and some examples of how to carry out matrix math operations. Finally, we went over an application of matrix formulation to the definition of sliding friction."
"We introduced circular motion. It is important to define velocity in this case. We then looked at centripetal acceleration, and centripetal force. We finished off with gravity on the astronomical scale, and orbits of planets."
"The student and I covered projectile motion. We covered specifically the x and y components of velocity and distance. She seemed like she was understanding most of the concepts we went over in the session. We went over how to make a chart to separate the x and y components of an object's motion."
