Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over all his homework problems step by step. We reviewed fundamental equations. He is to write out all the sample problems and equations from the chapter, as well as send me his next homework as soon as he gets it."
"Tonight, we started getting ready for the student's trimester final. We discussed the review packet which covered conversions, projectiles, torque, inclines, and tension. Then we went back and reviewed some of the topics that the student wanted to go over, including tension forces and projectile motion. She had no problems with any of the practice questions we completed. Tomorrow we will continue reviewing for her test."
"The student has started a new six weeks. We covered forces at an angle. He picked it up slowly as we went problem to problem. I think this six weeks will go better for him because we are able to tackle his problems from the beginning instead of right before the tests."
"Today, we reviewed waves, reflection, refraction, and resonance. We then looked at modern physics, including energy levels, atomic theory, and mass/energy relationships. I had the student take the practice Physics assessment exam. When we looked at the assessment, she was able to correct her mistakes and walk me through each problem."
"Today, we started with a look back at static electricity and movement of charge. Then, I gave a quick lecture on the equations and relationships between the electrostatic values of force, electric field, electric potential energy, and the electric potential (or voltage). After that, we began work on capacitance."
"Today's session was about ellipse and hyperbola. The student was eager to solve problems related to ellipses and hyperbolas, but he was confused with the way to arrange the equation to make it fit like the regular ellipse or hyperbola equation. I explained him how to work these equations and how to find the elements when we analyze it. He solved some problems by himself, and understood better. He has to solve some more problems as homework."
