Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We spent the majority of the time going over kinematics review sheet. We started with trigonometry, then vector addition, and finally graphical analysis."
"During this session we went over a castle online problem set. The student did really well, however, he is struggling with the concept of signs for direction. Overall this session went well."
"The student's final is in a little over a week, so we will spend the next few sessions talking about the last few topics including waves and gravity, and reviewing old concepts."
"Finding e-fields from Gaussian surfaces, finding e-fields due to linear charge distributions. The student will work through specific problems on his own and record questions to ask during our next session."
"First, I reviewed what we covered last Friday. Then, I covered Newton's First Law, Newton's Second Law and Newton's Third Law with samples and exercises during the session. She needs to practice problem solving and systematic approaches to solve problems. She has an excellent attitude. She was left with homework in preparation for next quarter. She will hopefully gain understanding and feel more comfortable dealing with physics as we progress."
"First, the student and I went over an extra credit exercise for the latest chapter covered in class. The extra credit was very straightforward. We solved problems with finding the resistance of a lighting bolt. We then used this to find the current through it. Which we then used to also find the power delivered to the ground, the current density and ultimately the energy delivered to the ground in a certain time frame. We started to go over the topics that will be covered on his first major test. We started by going over the first chapter. The professor gave them a list of problem types they should expect during the test. We went over the strategies needed to solve electrostatic forces problems, electric fields from uniform charges and from dipoles. We also went over Gauss' law and how to find the electric flux through an enclosed surface."
