Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over everything in Unit 2 including motion graphs, position, velocity, displacement, uniform acceleration, and free fall."
"The student and I went through the physical meaning of special relativity, including discussing space-time and Lorentz transforms."
"The student and I began preparing for her test over static equilibrium, summing forces in the horizontal and vertical directions in various static situations, including static ground and hanging situations."
"Today, the student and I did an in depth review of Chapter 28, which is on relativity. While the formulas introduced are easy enough to understand, the concepts themselves can be quite confusing. Strange things start happening to time and space when we approach the speed of light. Last time, we discussed relativity. Today, we talked more about conceptual ideas behind relativity, and did the "Check Your Understanding" questions in the student's textbook. I feel like she made major leaps and bounds today in her understanding of relativity and will do well with this topic on her final exam."
"Today, the student and I worked on her final practice exam and an extra problem set. She did well with finding the right equation(s) to use, and getting the big picture down. She is easy to work with and loves to learn."
"Today, the student and I worked on various topics in thermal physics. She had a good grasp of the concepts already, and just needed help on a few minor issues. Strategies included what types of problems to save for the end during quizzes and exams."
