Electromagnetism Tutoring FAQ
Students who are studying physics in high school or who are pursuing a science major in college are expected to run the gauntlet of electromagnetism. Whereas classical (Newtonian) mechanics deals with the macroscopic motion of uncharged matter caused by applied forces and gravity, electromagnetism deals with the behavior of charged particles in electromagnetic fields, and includes subtopics such as electrostatics and circuitry. While classical mechanics and electromagnetism are often taught as units in a single introductory physics course, making sense of each branch of the subject requires a unique perspective. The phenomena treated in classical mechanics are often directly observable with the naked eye, but this is rarely the case with electromagnetic phenomena, of which we can only observe the effects, as is the case with instances of static cling, the movement of compass needles, whether a circuit functions, and so on. Electromagnetism presents these challenges of abstraction along with the typical challenges offered by a physics class, involving numerous complex equations that need to be adapted and rearranged specifically for each scenario presented. Given this, its no wonder that students who did well in classical mechanics can encounter real difficulty when adapting their skills to the world of electromagnetism. Fortunately, Varsity Tutors can help you connect with electromagnetism tutoring to provide you with the assistance you need to make sense of this important subject.
Tutors make your sessions as effective as possible by customizing them to your syllabus, your preferred learning style, strengths, and weaknesses. Our educational directors can help you select the electromagnetism tutor who is best suited to helping you master the subject. The Varsity Tutors director will factor in your learning habits, scheduling needs, personality, and many other factors that can impact your academic learning. Then they will present your information to tutors who may be interested in working with you. Once you make a good match, this tutor can then design a customized curriculum for your one-on-one tutoring sessions, focusing on the topics that most concern you. Totally baffled by electric or magnetic flux? Have trouble remembering how the equations for electrical and magnetic phenomena are related? Need help rearranging equations or identifying which variable to solve for in a given problem? Tutors can help address each of these concerns in a structured way that aims to minimize your anxiety about the topic at hand. Whether you prefer to focus on a conceptual understanding of induction or need help manipulating the numerous calculus-based equations in your course, a private tutor can provide just the assistance you need.
Your tutor can assist you in setting goals for yourself, such as achieving a particular grade by the end of the school year or raising your grade in the course by a determined number of points. Whatever you want to accomplish, the tutor can ensure that your lesson plan is designed to keep you on track.
One-on-one tutoring sessions are extremely flexible, and for a reason. The goal is to go at your rate, rather than the rate the tutor expects you to. If you work through certain topics quickly but take a while to understand others, that's perfectly fine - you dictate the pace at which your tutoring sessions proceed, so you don't need to worry about being behind or ahead of a class full of peers. Your instructor can provide you with his or her full attention, allowing you to get immediate feedback on your work. Additionally, you can schedule your sessions to take place in your home, in a local coffee shop, or online - wherever works best for you, and at the time that is most convenient in your schedule.
Take control of the way in which you're learning electromagnetism, and get the one-on-one assistance you need to maximize your understanding of the subject while minimizing stress and confusion. Call Varsity Tutors today! Our directors are eager to help you select the tutor who can best assist you with your specific academic concerns.

We studied for the student quiz on Friday and went over his quiz from last week in which he got an 80%
The student and I worked on online exercises about evolution. Most of the questions pertained to natural selection, mechanisms of evolution, and evidence for evolution. The student had no difficulty with the majority of the exercises. The student's score was a 59/54. Next, we went over the student's lab for the week and generated a hypothesis for her lab report.
The student and I started the session reviewing the specifics of macromolecules (proteins, fats, and carbohydrates/sugars along with a brief section on DNA) that we had covered in the past. The student understood the material very well and would answer questions I had about the material promptly and with confidence; he would even correct himself without my guidance when he started to answer incorrectly. We continued past this review to go over his current class material on the cardiovascular system, which looked more in detail at the heart and blood vessels. At the end, I gave the student the assignment of making flashcards for new "vocab" terms and working on his organizational skills by organizing his class materials/backpack.
Today the student and I began our discussion of human anatomy and physiology. Specifically, we worked on an assignment that focused on the basics of the human respiratory system and the effects that environmental pollutants have on our respiration. The assignment was fairly straightforward and he did not have any major problems. We also looked at the human ear and the important functions of the Eustachian tubes. Overall, it was a productive session.
We covered gel electrophoresis, mRNA splicing, and polyadenylation. We examined RNAPII and mRNA transcription in the nucleus, noting the various subunits that comprise this polymerase and the role of serines in the CTD tail. The chemical structure, charge, and reactivity of the phosphate group was discussed in great detail, including its role in nucleotide phosphodiester bonds.
