Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We worked through a review of two practice physics problems related to projectile motion, rotational motion, conservation of momentum, pendulums, deriving moment of inertia using an integral, and graphing data to determine particular values. The student has identified rotational topics as an area that is particularly challenging. He had some difficulty recalling a few of the relevant equations, but his understanding was strong by the end of today's session."
"Today we reviewed for the student's final set of IB exams: history! We did a final review of Hitler's rise to power, as well as the forces that kept him in office. We also went over the accomplishments and failures of the Weimar Republic, and how Hitler ties into it. In general, we did one final run-through of her personal study guide in order to straighten out any final details necessary for her to pass her tests with flying colors. She's been a fantastic student and she's definitely going to ace her exams."
"The session covered writing style and technique for the ap biology test. The student's writing skill are exemplary and do not need much work. Tomorrow will be the final giant review before his AP test on Monday."
"We went through a practice test for her physics final. Problems covered many different subtopics including relativity, electromagnetism, and circuits. The student appeared to understand the material once I had explained each problem. I explained how to best identify the relevant formulas and how to apply them."
"Today we worked on circuits in series and parallel. The student did not struggle with the material and had a positive attitude throughout the session. I included strategies to simplify the material. I look forward to our next session."
"Going over an acid-base quiz, and then I gave a quick rundown of the basic concepts behind acid-base titrations and what the student is doing in lab. This was fortunate because apparently the teacher has not gone into too much detail yet. While discussing the acid-base quiz, I had him resolve the questions he had missed and explain to me how they were supposed to be answered and what the concepts behind them were."
