Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over the fundamentals of endocrinology, and previous quizzes. The student had very limited knowledge on the fundamentals of where hormones are produced and their effects. But, she seems to be quite proficient in vocabulary. The student was given a diagram to help comprehend the fundamentals of endocrinology."
"We went over the homework problems the student sent me, and then, with our extra time, we went over another problem set which we will continue tomorrow. Concepts covered were a quick lesson on Newton's Laws, weight, and Normal Force, as well as specific use of the second law."
"We went over the homework that I assigned, and I answered questions that he had. Then, we worked on a practice quiz that was given out today. He made good progress, but he needs more practice to memorize the solubility rules, as well as oxidation numbers. We will be meeting on Wednesday to go over more practice questions I left with him and get ready for the quiz on Friday."
"We went over the last two study questions that I wrote up. Reviewing some of the material from the past few days. We were able to go through synthesis and degradation of fatty acids and the citric acid cycle. I highlighted the major enzymatic steps and went over mechanisms. While our goal was to review ALL the material that her course will cover, we were able to review ~70% of the material. I think she has a solid foundation to build upon and notes to assist her along the way. She was truly an awesome student to work with, and I hope (and believe she will ACE her class)."
"We went over the nomenclature for complex ions including how to use the periodic table to serve as a memory aid for both complex ions and as a way to predict the charge for the parent ion. We then went over how to balance equations, ending with a demonstration of how to balance redox equations in both acidic and basic solutions."
"We went over the one test that we didn't get to, covering acceleration. I corrected a lot of his incorrect assumptions. Remember that acceleration at the top of projectile motion is 9.8! But the acceleration at terminal velocity is zero! We then went over the study guide of Newton's Law Applications that his mother provided me. He seemed to get the math pretty well, but he really needs to get the difference and applicability between friction and gravity down. He's going to study more tonight, and I wish him the best of luck on his test tomorrow!"
