Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"1. Elimination E2 E1 reactions. 2. Students have improved and recognized tricks to help them in E2/E1 questions 3. Assigned practice problems from end of the chapter."
"The student and I covered questions related to stoichiometry, and she has a clear understanding of the concepts that we encountered."
"The student is a bright young lady who has a very promising future. In our first session, we specifically created a timeline for what topics we would like to cover by the end of these sessions. She was also given several tasks to be fulfilled by the beginning of our next session, which we will go thoroughly later. She has most of the basic chemistry concepts down, but she has mentioned some weakness in naming of compounds and ions."
"The student and I worked on more case studies from her text. We went through med/surg issues of pre/intra/post-operative care. We will meet tomorrow morning to work on upcoming pharmacology section corticosteroids for pulmonary diseases."
"The student and I worked on the project for Unit 4; we made a PowerPoint that had definitions and comparisons about ocean movements. She had no difficulty at all with the project, but it just took a bit of time because we had to find information, piece it all into a presentable PowerPoint, and write out the APA citations for any pictures we used in the PowerPoint. We completed lesson 1 in Unit 5 as well."
"The student and I worked through some of his review packets in AP physics, covering the basics in kinematics. He has a strong understanding of most basic concepts and seems comfortable using derivatives (calculus) to solve problems. A few questions did trip him up at first, but after I explained his mistakes, he quickly understood his errors and was able to correct himself. We also talked a bit about what he should be doing over the year as a whole in order to best prepare for the AP physics exam (graph paper, make notes on his equation sheet, daily practice problems, etc.). Overall, it was a very successful session."
