Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Studied for exam by going over formal charges, polarity, and electronegativity. Student is doing very well in the class and keeping up with assignments I give him."
"We first went over questions that student had on topic eight problems. After that, we finished topic nine and specifically covered electrolytic cells and voltaic cells and differences between the two. We finally had time to introduce topic ten and covered the basics of nomenclature. He is understanding all concepts deeply and is doing very well on practice tests, but needs to brush up on theory before the exam."
"Productive session. The student said she scored a high B on her last exam. Her next exam is this Friday and it will cover the nervous system and animal behavior. Today we briefly reviewed the nervous system, then went over eclectic topics in animal behavior,"
"Today, we studied for his chemistry test. We did a quick talk-through of all the topics that he remembers covering, and then worked through the review questions that the teacher recommended practicing on before the test. Since it had been a few weeks since he had seen some of the topics (mixtures vs solutions, difference between atomic number, mass number, and atomic mass), we spent most of our time working with those older concepts."
"Today, we went over chapters 2 and 3 concerning the basics of chemistry and macromolecules. The student seemed to really get all of chemistry. For the coming week, she will be taking notes from the textbook, and in our next session, we will be reviewing macromolecules to really get those terms down."
"Today, we went over homework sets from previous chapters. One problem in particular regarding reflection was difficult, but with due diligence, it was solved and she was able to explain back to me the solution. At the end of the session, we completed a section review in preparation for her test next Thursday. There was one question about whether wavelength or frequency changes as light travels from one substance through another, which I let her know I would find the answer to and explain to her next session."
