Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We studied/completed his review for his earth science exam. He successfully answered 90% of the questions that I asked. We then transitioned to starting/completing a story board project for history."
"We covered the remainder of the student's review. We covered E1, E2, SN1 and SN2 reactions and how to decide which reaction will predominate. We worked on finding the anticonformation to determine the geometry of the new double bond. We reviewed the definitions of constitutional isomers, diastereomers, and enantiomers. We reviewed the Grignard reaction, hydroboration, oxymercuration and oxidation reagents PCC and Jones reagent. The students needs to review but seems to have a good grasp on his notes."
"In this session, the student and I focused on Science in order to prepare for his upcoming chapter test. Prior to reviewing, he completed an in-class assignment, which he had a few questions about. To reinforce the concepts, I gave him real-life examples. He had a few "a-ha" moments where things clicked, and he understood why certain weather events occur. After he finished the in-class assignment, we began reviewing for the test. Following a study guide outline, I asked him questions to test his knowledge. If he answered incorrectly or had trouble answering, we discussed the question. Along the way, I gave tips on how to remember definitions and associations. I gave him advice on how to continue studying after our session."
"The student and I had a good session. I had some quiz questions prepared for him dealing with IUPAC naming and the main functional groups in ochem 1. He did well on the questions, and we talked about the ones he struggled with. We then kept working through chapter 3 in his textbook. We talked about the major purposes of alkanes and some of their properties. I gave him several text pages to read through, and we will pick up on Wednesday talking about Newman projections and conformations."
"The student and I reviewed double integration methods for static determinate and indeterminate beams as well as the derivation of the moments in terms of x, then integrated and solved for initial conditions. I lectures as well as worked some examples and assisted with a practice test for his exam."
"The student and I reviewed for her test tomorrow. We worked on mostly emission/absorption problems, explaining periodic trends and mole conversion. I am sending her extra practice with answers."
