Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Both students wanted help on understanding work problems. They identified their physics struggles stemming from classroom tests, so we focused on ways to think through problems beginning with assigned homework problems. We worked through several assigned worksheets dealing with work, FBDs, and power problems."
"We covered redox reactions and how to identify them. I did not see any grades, but she did say her recent test went well. I left her with going over identifying redox reaction practice problems from her book."
"We worked through the vocabulary list for the new unit, covering galaxies and the universe. Topics included star life stages, types of stars, types of galaxies, dark energy and dark matter, and our celestial 'neighborhood.' We also sorted and hole-punched the loose papers in her binder. She received the grade for her second unit test: a solid A."
"The student and I had a good session. She has a test coming up next week. We worked through problems in the review the professor gave out. We mostly spent time on difficult rate equations dealing with half life and integrated rate laws. There were several very tough questions that took a little work to figure out. She will reach out to me to schedule the next session. Good luck on the test!"
"The student and I prepared for his upcoming midterm physics exam. We specifically went over about five problems from a practice midterm exam, focusing on energy conservation, mechanical energy (kinetic and gravitational potential), spring potential energy and more. Thank you!"
"The student and I reviewed chapter 20 in her textbook. We began the lesson going over oxidation states. We next reviewed constructing half reactions and calculating voltages. We ended with the Nernst Equation, and other methods of calculating voltage."
