Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We began with the student's math work. He worked on exponents and logs and did very well. We worked through every problem on his assignment plus extra problems I created based on his homework. We then worked on physics. I gave a quick lecture on resistance, current, voltage, power, basic series and parallel circuits."
"We covered ionic bonding, covalent bonding, geometric configurations of molecules, and the VSEPR theory. I will provide the student more practice with Lewis structures and asked him to memorize the chart for VSEPR geometries. Otherwise, he seemed comfortable with the concepts and was able to solve most problems. Practice problems and a study guide will be sent to him before our next session."
"Today we worked on a project that really kept us busy. The student is learning about electrical circuits and how they can be used. His focus is about creating a race track for his very small car and using a 6 volt battery, among others, to make this car go around his race track. He is also including electric lights so that his work is easy to see and learn about."
"Today the student decided she wanted to go over the origins, insertions and actions of different muscles. We utilized the set of flashcards I created for her. She can identify most of the muscle actions with ease. She has a good sense of the anatomy when it comes to indicating the location of the structures. For our Sunday session, she has asked that we first go over the bones again; practicing telling the bone names from the muscle names, and the muscle origins from their insertions."
"Today, she and I covered long bone growth and development. We also finished up our session with a discussion of the hand muscles. She is doing very well, and I expect great results on her first Anatomy & Physiology exam on Thursday. We have set up a few times this week to meet and discuss her studies further. As always, I look forward to working with her again tomorrow! Thank you. "
"We covered the Anatomical triangles of the neck, the muscles, nerves, and boundaries of both the anterior and posterior triangles. The student has been exposed to the skeletal components of the head and neck and is preparing for his board exams at the end of the month. I will focus on the cranial nerves and facial arteries and veins for the upcoming session."
