Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today, we worked on two Dynamics questions, both focused on ballistics. Then the first mechanics problem was a steel bar with a tension force. Mostly we worked on the conceptualizing. And then we worked on 2 differential equations involving air resistance. The key area I am noticing is that the student has some difficulty starting multi-step problems. I will start focusing on the approach to multi-step problems in general."
"We went over problems involving simple harmonic motion in physics, and trigonometric functions in algebra 2. By the end of the session, the student was able to solve the problems correctly."
"In our session, the student worked primarily on her collision problem homework, both elastic and inelastic."
"In this session, we went over stress and strains on non-uniformly loaded beams, trusses, and experimental data. The student understood the principles, and she was able to apply them to solve for stress and strain for all of her homework problems. We went over Young's modulus, 2% offset strain, and engineering strain, as she had some questions about their meaning. This was our first session for the semester and her first exam is on Friday."
"In today's session, the student and I expanded on the topic of metabolism. We attempted to better understand the process of glycolysis as we saw how it related to the Krebs Cycle and ETC. The practical applications of oxidation/reduction reactions was new to her so we needed to review that as well in relation to the ETC."
"In today's session, we discussed the Norton equivalent circuit and Thevenin equivalent circuits, how to convert each, how to handle the independent voltage, and current sources to find the Thevenin's voltage. Through four working examples, I taught him the strategies to find Rth and Vth."
