Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I discussed more about reflection and refraction, and talked about mirrors and lenses. We moved on to discuss lenses, saying that they either focused or separated light. We also went over mirrors. This explanation brought us to the end of the session."
"We focused on getting the student ready for her physics final and ending things on a high note. She has been having some trouble with the E & M course. The topics covered in the class are somewhat abstruse and harder to perceive than the physics covered in the mechanics module. She has taken to relying on the formulas and trying to generalize them in a way that will make them the most helpful to her when she takes the test. The final advice I gave her was to study the formulas and try to look at situations where they can be applied in practice problems, both in and out of the book. She should also use the internet to find similar problems and see how they are solved. Her test is on Thursday and I will see her once more on Tuesday. We will see how much she has progressed before starting to study for the final."
"We went over waves, terms definitions and equations. Quick review of a difficult circuit to be sure she understood from earlier. Most of the waves portion of physics 1b is complete."
