Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over conceptual material and some practice problems for her physics final. We discussed Newton's Laws, gravitation, friction forces, etc. We spent a lot of time on significant figures as this is an area she struggles with. We went over a number of practice problems, and she appeared to be more comfortable working with significant figures."
"I met with the student as she prepared for a test that she took this week. It was on the topics of momentum and gravity. We reviewed two sheets she received in class on these topics. We spent extra time on the force of gravity, as this was brand new material for her. We practiced manipulating equations in reference to this and she was able to understand quickly. I left her with two worksheets for extra practice on forces and momentum for her test. We will meet again next in early January due to the holidays."
"The student appears to understand the concepts very well. His ability to pay attention to small details appears to be his weakness at the present. I believe that through our sessions his weakness will soon turn into his strength."
"The student was preparing for an exam on electricity, circuits, power, voltage, resistance, and related quantities. We touched on some of the principal attributes of the relationships, so she could use them readily to answer questions on the exam."
"The student and I worked on adding fractions with different denominators again. He struggled at first, but after we worked through two examples, he was fully capable of doing a problem on his own. I'm very proud of him!"
"We went over concepts and problems about standing and traveling waves. The student just needed clarification on certain points throughout the problems. Figuring out how to sketch the standing wave patterns for various set-ups was what we spent the most time on. She had already had a test on the subject, so we were reviewing the test questions. She was in general doing well in comprehending what was necessary to solve the problems. She reported that she got a B+ on her last exam, which we prepared for together. This was a real win for us."
