Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I covered a couple vector and motion problems from chapter 3 to help him prep for his Monday exam. I focused on interpreting the problems correctly, ensuring we know what is being asked for, writing down the appropriate equations, seeing what variables we know and what we don't, and solving for the unknown. He's still struggling a bit with comprehending what each equation does. I encouraged him to be calm, systematically go through each problem, be patient, draw a picture, and be clear on what is being asked of him and focus on solving that."
"Studied for upcoming test on centripetal motion, orbital motion, and gravitational effects. Worked through online problem sets and discussed test strategies. Recommended the student make a formula sheet and flash cards to make it easier to memorize formulas. Also recommended he use units to figure out what formulas to use."
"Today, we reviewed the concepts of gravitational force and circular motion. We also reviewed angular momentum. We went over strategies for her upcoming exam and discussed systematic ways to analyze difficult problems. Great job!"
