Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Met with the student online for 1.5 hours. Worked on his homework on electrostatics: 1. Equivalent Capacitor and Resistors 2. Electrical charge computation 3. Electrical power, current, resistor calculation 4. Design of a filament light bulb with some electrical specifications to find the filament length, its resistance etc. 5. Calculating the capacitance of an electrical plate system connected to a voltage source The student is attentive, collaborative and shows interest to learn. It's a pleasure working with him."
"We went over her second midterm. She did better than average, but thought she should've done better. Most of her points were lost from a P-V diagram question, and we went over everything that she got wrong. We spent the remainder of the session reviewing lenses and mirrors. I told her to focus on problems with multiple lenses/mirrors tomorrow, and we will go over anything she struggles with next time."
"Student was continuing with light and optics, in an online course for home schooled students. This course is extremely ambitious, and covers a lot of material very quickly, so it is very understandable that a student seeing it for the first time could be overwhelmed. But she is very sharp and good-natured about tackling all this, and that helps a lot. We made some good progress on refraction and lens imaging."
"We started the new Physics 2 course today; we discussed Coulomb's law and solved problems 2(e), 3(a), and 3(b), and we discussed electric field and potential and solved practice problems 1 through 4."
"We started worked on a review packet for a midterm exam on Tuesday. We started with the mean, standard deviation, percent error, and uncertainty for a data set. We practiced some unit conversions and discussed how to calculate the volume and density of cylinders and prisms. We finished with a couple problems on graphing data and analyzing graphs."
"During the first session we went over questions involving projectile motion. During the second we went over centripetal force, friction, and equilibrium."
