Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed for her rotational motion test tomorrow. Topics covered were angular kinematics, torque, rotational kinetic energy, angular momentum and equilibrium. We worked through her test review and went over any problems she did incorrectly, and I helped her work through problems she didn't know how to start. We finished the session by getting some extra practice on these concepts from another textbook."
"The student and I worked primarily on understanding the material on his weekly homework assignment. I spoke with him about men Delian genetics, how to create and interpret a Punnett square, the differences between phenotype and genotype, and heterogeneity and homogeneity. On the statistics side of his course we spoke about statistics tests of small data sets. Specifically we covered when to use the Mann-Whitney U-test, the Kruskal Wallis test, and the Wilcoxon test. The student demonstrated his understanding of the different uses and applications of these tests by calculating the significance of two data sets and interpreting their outcomes. Finally, he and I discussed a writing assignment due in a few weeks. We talked about examples of altruism in animals and how evolution does not always lead to optimal outcomes. The student demonstrated understanding of the topics we covered and is even able to think deeply and critically to apply the concepts to complex problems."
"Reviewed and discussed quantum mechanics including the photoelectric effect, atomic orbitals and the (No Suggestions) principle and related spectroscopic terms like wavelength and frequency; solved problems related to upcoming exam."
"We worked through Test 1 chemistry problems related to the following: cubic crystals (face-centered, body-centered), density, equilibrium constants (Kp and Kc), the "ICE" method for finding equilibrium concentrations, partial pressure, the Arrhenius equation, interpreting graphs, finding the activation energy and frequency factor of a reaction, Raoult's law, and distinguishing between ideal and non-ideal gases."
"Yesterday, we met to prepare for the student's exam. We covered 4 chapters of topics and practiced many problems that were given by her professor. We covered stoichiometry, molarity, chemical formulas, and limiting reactant problems."
