Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we covered photosynthesis, cellular respiration, and began to cover the process of mitosis. She notes that she is doing well on exams, though she is losing the majority of her points on essay questions which she always seems to miss the "key concepts" that the teacher is looking for. We reviewed examples of how to elaborate when she answers such essay questions to ensure that she won't have points deducted as a result of missing pertinent information. We did practice questions together and reviewed the incorrect answers as I believe this will also help her answer essay questions with a better knowledge and understanding of the material. I feel she is a bright student that will continue to excel with her coursework."
"The student had a unit review packet to complete to prepare for a test. It covered topics such as galaxies, star properties, Hubble, and redshift. We worked through the packet together."
"We reviewed and worked a more with torque. I think the pupil is getting more familiar with some of the ideas regarding how to calculate torque and set up problems."
"The student needed last minute editing for an essay due tomorrow. I assisted with these edits. We went through the paper and made certain that references and format were consistent throughout."
"The student needed to clarify his doubts on the concepts of work, energy and power. He had a few homework questions that he was having problems with. I was able to help him understand the problems and solve them, and clarify his concepts stronger going forward."
"The student needs a LOT of practice with vector/projectile problems because vectors are absolutely foundational for physics. He still struggles a bit with resolving and adding vectors and incorporating the kinetics equations. However, today we went over conservation of momentum and he is understanding how to set up those problems better."
