Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we spent our session wrapping up the questions and practice problems on two dimensional kinematics. We also did some work on Newtonian mechanics and the analysis of translational equilibrium. We did several practice problems and worked on breaking down force vectors. We also worked on a few problems involving friction and tension and Atwell machines."
"We covered ionic, covalent and metallic bonding. We also covered hydrocarbons, balancing equations and atomic theory. She needs more practice with hydrocarbons, and their names, and their structures. We went over all quizzes and she definitely has enough practice material."
"This was my first lesson with the student after the holiday break. His chemistry assignment for the day was on physical and chemical changes, meaning the process of physical state or phase change of a substance, and the process of chemical change due to reactions between different substances. Specifically, he has to record a YouTube video of himself defining the two concepts in his own words, so we spent the rest of the lesson talking about the details of phase change (atomic /molecular arrangement and movement), the properties of water, and the basic nature of chemical reactions between two substances."
"The student and I covered colligative properties, molarity, molality and freezing point depression. We also covered several concepts in algebra II, including those of trigonometric identities and the unit circle. Overall, a great session."
"For this evening's class, the student requested help with Precalculus. We did practice flashcards on Geometric and Arithmetic sequences, linear programming, and solving systems of quadratic equations. She showed a quick aptitude to understand the problem posed and to subsequently identify the correct solutions."
"We talked about circuits. He was taking a remake of an old exam, and wanted to go over some questions that he did not get right. We talked about the general concepts involved with resistors and capacitors in circuits."
