Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Reviewed for the student's exam on acids and bases (trait ration equations, parent acids/bases, salt/water formation, naming acids/bases)."
"The student and I reviewed for her upcoming chemistry test regarding chemical equilibrium, solubility products, oxidation-reduction reactions, cell potentials, and batteries."
"The student and I have now gone over all the topics that she wanted extra coverage with and are doing complete review. She timed herself on a practice test and passed. At this point, she is just doing all the previous year's questions and looking for their patterns, and if she doesn't understand something conceptually, then we will go over it at our last session."
"The student and I covered his second test from class. We went over problems relating to friction, force balances, velocities, and tensions. I gave him some advice on preparing for tests and how he should study this upcoming weekend."
"The student and I covered Newtonian Forces, Gravitational Forces, and Centripetal motion. He had trouble understanding and applying the different natures of forces, but only needed a little explanation to gain comprehension. He also had trouble figuring out which equations to use in problems that required multiple steps. To clarify this, I broke down the steps to reading and working a word problem."
"The student and I covered one-sample t-tests, two-sample t-tests, power, and f-tests. He was having trouble grasping some of the statistical concepts and integrating them into a coherent background. I walked him through the 'why' of different statistical tests and applications, and that helped him understand. His attitude was positive and eager to learn. He will be practicing more of his problem sets. We went through some problems together, and he will do some more alone and let me know if he needs more help. He has class notes and his class work to record his progress. I look forward to working with him again; he communicates well and is clear about what he does and does not understand."
