Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered acid/base equilibrium. Mainly at the midpoint, equivalence point, and if we over shoot the equivalence point. At first she struggled the most with the point where you go past equivalence but at the end that was her favorite point to do. She was great throughout the session. She already had a good understanding of the material but we just tied up some loose ends. I gave her more of idea of how everything works instead of her memorizing how to do the problems. She enjoyed it a lot more after our session was over."
"Today we went over the handout regarding electrochemistry. We covered the Nerst equation and did examples on those. We also covered topics such as stronger/weaker reducing agent from a given pair of compounds. I left the student with extra practice on these material to be checked tomorrow."
"Today we worked on some of the student's homework problems. She expressed that she was not feeling comfortable with some of her recent assignments. The problem we spent the most time on had to deal with population growth rates. We spent time talking about how these types of problems can show up all over the place in different forms. The concept remains the same and can make solving these problems easy."
"We discussed pH scales, macromolecules, polymers, and properties of bonds and water. The student was continuously engaged throughout the session. I suggest reviewing the chart in his notes a few more times. He has shown great improvement in his capability to handle lots of material."
"We discussed the maximum power transfer condition. We went through two comprehensive problems, one without dependent source and the other with the dependent source, to find the maximum power delivered to the load, percentage of the total power delivered by the sources, and the power reaching load."
"We discussed the system method for finding the acceleration of masses tied in tension on both horizontal and inclined surfaces. The student quickly was able to build her confidence in earlier problems from a quiz she had missed previously. Subtopics covered included frictional force variation and normal force on an inclined surface."
