Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Student 1 studied for a French Revolution test that he has next week. Student 2 completed a worksheet (we also watched a couple more videos to clarify dominant/recessive traits and the Mendel bean experiments)."
"We covered radical reactions and the thermodynamics/kinetics associated with these reactions. The student was very determined to learn the concepts and the session was very instructive."
"This session we focused on probability. We looked at conditional probability and how to find the intersections and unions of events that are conditionally related. We also discussed how to use data to create Venn diagrams, and how to interpret them. We covered using tree diagrams to illustrate and to find probability of events occurring. We ended by discussing how to find probability when an object is taken and not replaced."
"Today the student and I reviewed last minute material for her exam tomorrow which included but was certainly not limited to the following: musculoskeletal system (neuromuscular junction), the muscle twitch, different types of skeletal muscle (slow twitch vs. fast twitch), different pathologies associated with the muscle twitch, and smooth muscle contraction and regulation. We also finished up the session discussing the organization of the nervous system (central vs. peripheral nervous systems). I am confident in her abilities heading into her exam, but she has requested that we meet one more time tomorrow morning to discuss any last minute questions. I look forward to meeting with her again tomorrow morning."
"Today we continued practicing concepts and calculations for determining electrostatic force and E- field. We completed two very specific problems that involved force vectors and E-field vector addition problems."
"Today we covered forces and continued our discussion of vectors. The student was quite receptive and didn't have much trouble grasping the main concepts. However, I would strongly encourage her to solve the problems again, from scratch, on her own. This is generally a good practice for preparing for exams."
