Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We discussed Ksp, entropy, enthalpy, and calculating concentrations from pH in this session. The student said it was very helpful to have someone there to help her go through the work step by step. She seemed to feel much better about the work after our session."
"We started to take practice exams. Today was the writing portion. We took short prompts similar to ones given in class and wrote for ten minutes each. After writing the student would read it out loud and then find her mistakes if any. Overall it was a great exercise for her to practice."
"Today we reviewed the PowerPoint presentation and re-formatted some of the slides to make it fit standard PowerPoint practice. In addition we began working on the research for the next paper due and reviewed discussion question."
"We went over SAT writing and some Math problems. The student continues to be attentive during our sessions. I've decided to give her day-by-day homework assignments, and she seems to like the idea."
"Today, I just worked with the student on finding the geometric mean between two numbers, and then we found missing sides of triangles using the geometric mean. She had a little trouble with the subject at first, but by the end-of the session she was doing all the problems on her own. In fact, she was getting the answers before me. Then we worked on the rules of special right triangles: 30-60 90 and 45-45-90. The only problem we faced was that she would forget which rule multiplied a side by the square root of 3 and which multiplied a side by the square root of 2, but by the end of the session, she was remembering them very well. "
"The student and I went over her homework dealing with loops and conditional statements. By the end of our session, she was able to apply these concepts in new situations and demonstrated a much better understanding of the material."
