Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I reviewed her last lab and homework questions, which dealt with current and voltage. Then she showed me some practice problems in preparation for the test she had worked on, but wanted some help on. She has physics tests this Tuesday and Wednesday, so next session, she will have some questions for me, and I will have some questions for her, and we will have a good study session right before her exam. She is motivated to do well."
"The student and I reviewed her practice final exam and covered the remaining concepts for which she needed a clearer understanding. She seemed to have a good understanding of the majority of the concepts that will be on the exam. At the conclusion of our session, she planned to go over a few problem sets and to look over some concepts to be able to answer facts about them. She should earn a good score on her exam."
"The student and I reviewed her presentation. She expressed some confusion over how to start working through the processes, so I provided some tips and guiding questions. I suggested that she work in small sections, and focus primarily on four areas of the presentation. We are meeting again on Monday, before her presentation in the evening."
"The student and I reviewed her test to prepare for the test retake tomorrow. The biggest area where she needed help was identifying the trajectory of a projectile. She does have a good grasp of where she went wrong, and was able to see the mistakes and then find the correct answer when the correct method was shown."
"The student and I reviewed his English and World History homework. He was struggling with new vocabulary, so we worked on defining the words in a more understandable way. We also worked on writing a summary of a current event. He chose to write about events in America. We will be meeting again tomorrow to continue working on a review of assignments due this week."
"The student and I reviewed how to solve molarity word problems, naming acids, and covered new material on specific heat capacity and how to use it to calculate temperature change and heat lost/gained. By the end of the session, he seemed more confident and could do the calculations more easily. Most of his mistakes were in using the wrong numbers or not reading the problem carefully enough. We will continue to work on this next session."
