Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Our session was spent covering and teaching circular motion and centripetal forces. The student started off hesitant and unsure, but his mood changed toward the end of the session to being confident in the material, and saying he understood it just fine. I asked him to go over the problems we glanced over together, and to practice some problems before his exam Wednesday."
"We went over the expectations of the lab report. Specifically, we went over what the experiments were doing, how those experiments were performed, and why. The topic was on homogenate analysis of macromolecules from a cow's kidney, heart, and liver. Together we solidified concepts on how between different tissues, the amount of proteins, glycogen and triglycerides were different, and how those numbers were procured. I helped the student understand difficult to comprehend aspects of the lab manual, and also aid her in writing her report. She had a positive and attentive attitude which made our session both productive and fun."
"We reviewed Acid / Base chemistry from our previous session - pH, pOH, Ka, Kw values and interchanging between then all. We then worked on some questions relating to finding the concentrations of strong acids and mixtures of strong acids in water. We also reviewed how to determine the strength of an acid. Finally, we introduced weak acids and I.C.E. problems. As usual, the student was very focused and engaged, and is doing very well - he is a pleasure to work with."
