Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over and discussed the answers to her most recent test, which included motion concepts regarding velocity, acceleration, and distance."
"Today, we reviewed chapter 4 material in preparation for her upcoming test this Friday. We also worked through various problem types and outlined what she should have memorized as well for the test, including redox reactions, titration problems, dilutions and molarity equations."
"We went over a few conceptual questions involving forces and tension. We also talked about work and springs for when the student will see those topics in the future. He didn't seem to have any issues with solving physics problems, and as he becomes more familiar with the testing style of his teacher I'm sure his grades will improve."
"We went through the study guide that was given to her to prepare for the test. We identified areas that she needs further clarification to understand the concepts. She learns best by providing an explanation, and then giving an example. She was given areas that she will need to memorize while I will be creating practice test questions for the next session."
"We worked through the student's lab worksheet on atoms, ions, and bonds. She already had a really good understanding of these concepts, and we just discussed them further and worked together to complete her worksheet. We also made flashcards of certain elements and their symbols so that she can review those in preparation for the next/quiz. Finally, we started going through her notes sheet and filling in some of the answers. The student has a really good grasp of the concepts, and I think if she puts in the time to review flashcards and review the vocabulary, she will be very successful in her class. I really enjoyed our first session, and I look forward to working with her next week!"
"Yesterday we worked on scientific notation and counting significant figures in chemistry. The rules for significant figures were a little tough to grasp at first, but once we started putting everything in scientific notation, it was much easier to count the number of significant figures and both girls seemed to get the concepts."
