Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We are continuing practicing for the AP exam by working through the diagnostic tests in the learning tools. The student has been able to work through these problems with much more ease than when we first met."
"We went over nuclear chemistry: alpha, beta, gamma particles; fusion v. fission; and half life. We also went over some questions on matter in the universe, like the most abundant element in the universe, and the composition of Earth's elements. We mainly went over definitions and worked on some half life questions. The student didn't completely understand what a half life was, but going over the math and questions helped her understand the concept better."
"We did a homework set the student had about electric circuits and resistivity. Then we began a review of dynamics and rotational dynamics. The student had some questions about sign conventions."
"We covered thermodynamics and SAT math practice. The student caught on quickly with the thermodynamics for her chemistry class and will do well on the test."
"Today, the student and I worked on a problem set dealing with stoichiometry, ideal gas laws, and the law of partial pressures. The student has a good grasp of the concepts, but wanted guidance working through the wording of the problems to sort out information and set up the equations."
"We reviewed his worksheet and reading for next week. We worked on solutions, electrolytes, hard water, and soft water. The student is showing more confidence in his ability and actually displaying a good understanding of the concepts. His grades are up to 91%."
