Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on some of the problems from his astrophysics homework. We covered the Poynting Vector, luminosity, and the Stefan-Boltzman constant."
"Covered general materials regarding substitution and elimination. Also studied alkanes and alkenes. The student has one more week to study for his exam."
"We covered enthalpy and stoichiometry. She understood the math involved, but needs to focus on concepts and pulling out the information needed to solve the problems."
"We went over work-energy problems. The key to solving them was to properly set up the initial and final conditions, which we clarified. We stressed that for conservative forces, we do not need details about the intermediate path; only the initial and final energy values need to be accounted for in determining the solution."
"We went over X-linked genetics diseases and drawing Punnett squares. She struggled with understanding the concept of how X-linked genes were passed to offspring, so we went over several questions to solidify the concept."
"We went through a couple of different concepts that will be covered on the student's upcoming test. Most of the topics were in chapters 6, 7, and 10 of the book. I helped her put a lot of things into context and make sense of some of the examples given in the book. Next time, we will go over polarization."
