Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Session Eighteen Tutoring Review The student's eighteenth session was a mix of conceptual discussion on her new topics in physics and algebra. The main topics we covered are detailed below. We discussed gravity in detail including the known behaviors, predictions in Einstein's relativity, and the various field theories most notably being one that has really captured her interest, the Higgs Field Theory. We readdressed relativity for time dilation, length contraction, and the duality of wave-like particles. We sketched a model of the universe and the Big Bang Theory, the acceleration of the universe, the collisions of solar systems, the massive gravitational pull of black holes, dark energy and matter, and four forces in the universe. We also covered the proper use and setup of the quadratic equation to factor prime quadratics and solve for their zeroes. We revisited negative multiples of numbers, absolute value functions, and the behavior of Euler's number raised to the x. Homework and our Plan for Session XIX: Our next session is scheduled for Wednesday at 6pm. We will continue to review and study for both physics and algebra with a slight favor on physics in preparation for her exam on the 21st. I asked her to continue to try to complete the even problems that her algebra professor does not assign. She said she would definitely try to complete as much as she can.. Notes: She continued to well in both physics and algebra today! I'm very excited to see whether she might be feeling more comfortable performing algebra. She really seems to be making a serious effort with her studies in both algebra and physics, and I'm really proud of her effort and progress!"
"She is making great strides. She is able to successfully solve several complex chemistry problems. I still recommend we move to a twice weekly schedule."
"He is working on dynamics in his mechanical engineering cycle. He needs to ace his final, so we are reviewing everything in the class. We are starting by working through all of the sample problem sets which his professor provided. As we reviewed basic kinematics, he seemed to be make connections."
