Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I reviewed his Chemistry class for the last time. The latest material he learned was still fresh in his mind, so we reviewed the first few chapters, including using the mole triangle to convert between volume, mass, molar mass, and the number of molecules. I gave him some worksheets, which included mole conversions, balancing reaction equations, and finding the limiting reactant and stoichiometry. This is a difficult course, and he did very well in some of his tests."
"The student is on the final section of her online Pre-calculus course (binomial theorem/mathematical induction). Using the postulates of mathematical induction we went through steps for a proof of an arithmetic series. We then continued onto reviewing the topic of nuclear physics from her online Physics course. We looked at two problems balancing nuclear reaction equations."
"We covered longitudinal and transverse waves, examples of each one of them and main components. We talked about velocity, frequency, and wavelength v=f wavelength. We looked at constructive and destructive interference, simple harmonic motion, kinetic and potential energy, pendulums, Hooke's law, electric fields, optics including concave and convex mirrors, diverging and converging lenses, the lens maker equation, problems applying the lens maker equation, magnetic field through a current-conducting wire, magnetic flux, electromotive force and reviewed problems applying the main formulas for each of the previous concepts. The student was instructed on how to look at problems with different views and apply the concepts that might be interrelated. For example, how to find kinetic energy from potential energy considering that energy can only be transformed but never destroyed. The student showed a good understanding of the instructions and information given. She was given extra practice for the final test and asked to review all the concepts prior to the test."
