Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered sound problems related to the Doppler Effect, the intensities of sound waves, and fundamental wavelengths of given frequencies in an open tube. We went on to work on exercises related to algebraic and geometric series."
"Today, we worked over the same information from last time that involved pendulums. We also went through normal waves and determining their wavelength, amplitude, frequency and velocity. Her last quiz score was a 100! By the end of the session she was able to apply the majority of the vocabulary without any additional input."
"We began session working on his chemistry worksheets in preparation for his test on Wednesday. We worked on and discussed naming acids and molecular nomenclature. We then completed his math homework on quadratic equations. We finished the session starting his last 2 questions on the Incas."
"Today I taught the student how to do and interpret cladograms. We also did some practice questions about natural selection, fitness, etc. Next, we will review homologous structures, analogous structures, and do more questions on cladograms. I advised the student to review these materials before our session next Tuesday."
"We spent our time going over mitosis and meiosis in preparation for the student's quiz on Friday. We used a practice test that she was given by her teacher, and supplemented with online diagrams. She appears to be in good shape for her quiz; she needs to review the steps of both processes, and make sure she is consistently able to distinguish between the two. Good luck!"
"We worked on a review sheet for the student's ecology test on Wednesday. It reviewed ecological levels, trophic levels, symbiotic relationships, and system succession. He had a great foundation of the material, and there were just details lacking from his knowledge. He was able to recall the information from class presentations in order to complete the study guide. After finishing the study guide, we also completed the chapter review in his text book. We were able to discuss topics in ways that he would understand them and be able to relate them to his own life, so that he could recall them later during the exam."
