Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We spent most of the session reviewing projectile motion. We went through several examples from the textbook of increasing difficulty. We started with a horizontally launched projectile, then finding range given initial velocity (at an angle), and finally determining range when the starting and final heights are different. This week, she will try some more Newton's law problems and we will go over any she has questions on next time."
"The student and I worked on her water quality lab, trying to understand changes in pH in a FL spring over the past 70 years. This involved downloading data from a website, organizing and plotting data in Excel, and explaining the results. A very positive session!"
"The student and I spent this session practicing writing net ionic equations and determining the solubility of different compounds. She was having a little trouble at the beginning with figuring out the charges of ions, but by the end of the session she was much more confident. She just needs to review the general rules of solubility."
"Today, I met with the student to review what she will be going over in her Biology class tomorrow. Specifically, we went over her Biology homework and discussed the concepts in each question and the processes behind them. She wanted help understanding ATP as energy currency in the body and how that relates to coupling with ender and exergonic reactions. I drew out some diagrams and helped her get a better grasp of the material. I also helped her organize and plan out her studying for this week so that she can get more practice and study time in before her next Biology and Psychology exams."
"We covered Ecology concepts, food webs, food chains, nutrient cycles, carbon, water, nitrogen. The student had a great attitude towards learning the new material. She is to complete chapter 37 post chapter assessment in the concepts book."
"We covered half of the lecture material, which covered various membrane lipids and their functionality in the cell membrane (fluidity, surface membrane, and integral/transmembrane). We will continue with the remainder of this lecture tomorrow."
