Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I reviewed for her upcoming test by going over oscillations, inclined planes, impulses, work and energy. She seems ready for her exam."
"We covered more on forces, particularly tension in strings. Then, started in on Chapter 6: the definition of work, how to derive its equation, and beginning Kinematic Energy examples."
"We went over the student's next lab on circular motion and made sure that he understood the equations used for them. As long as he remembers the key equations, circular motion will be easy for him."
"We went over the layout of the periodic table, how to name ionic compounds with and without transition metals, naming covalent compounds, the differences between ionic and covalent bonds, and how to make Lewis structures."
"We went over the periodic properties of the elements, including atomic radii, ionization energy, electron affinity, ionic radii, and electronegativity. We also covered Lewis dot structures and covalent and ionic bonding. The student worked a few problems on each topic and is supposed to work the rest for practice. We also reviewed some of the worksheets he has been working on. For the most part, he did very well on them. We identified that naming compounds is still an area that we need to work on. For homework, he is to continue doing the worksheets and make flashcards for all the polyatomic ions he needs to know."
"We went over the problems the student had not been able to approach correctly, and then we moved on to new material. Since he has the concepts pretty well, we focused on problem solving."
