Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Student was working on test corrections related to circular motion and gravitation. We worked through a series of examples that really boosted her confidence in tackling physics problems, and I also pointed out some study strategies (working with the Minds on Physics modules from the Physics Classroom and preparing equation flashcards) that could cement her understanding."
"I thought that it went really well, we went over the worksheet that is review for her test. We worked a lot with solubility and writing net ionic equations. We investigated the solubility rules and how we could apply those to predict if a compound is soluble or not. Also, we discussed the different types of reactions (particularly combustion reactions), and how to determine the reaction type from looking at the equation."
"Today the student and I worked on his homework for science. This homework was a study guide for his quiz on Friday. He seemed to really understand the concepts this time. It involved a review of electromagnetic and mechanical waves. He told me that he felt confident after our first session and that the teacher kept calling on him in class, and praised his examples. He is planning on talking to his teacher about moving his seat so he can focus better in class. He currently has a C in science class, and wants to get at least a B! He said his goal is to be able to walk into class and feel confident about taking a quiz or test, which I know he can do! He is a great student to work with."
