Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student had received a few quizzes back in class on Monday that she did not do very well on. We reviewed all of the questions and topics covered by one of the quizzes which took most of our time. These included how to read pedigrees, basic Mendelian inheritance definitions and meiosis vs. mitosis. We then began to review what she had learned in class on Monday-recombinant vs. non-recombinant gametes, test crosses and map units. She felt more comfortable with all of the information covered by the end of the session and was able to complete similar problems to her quiz questions we reviewed. When asked questions, she tends to go right to her notes trying to find the answer, so I hope to work on not relying on the notes so heavily in future sessions."
"The student said that he got his paper turned in on time and it was the proper length. We focused on Japan with a focus on its attempts to modernize and it was affected by the Great Depression and its involvement in WWII. He was attentive and took notes and asked questions to make sure he understood before he moved on."
"On Tuesday the student and I studied several problems involving differential equations to study for her final. We went through problem involving logistic differential equations. Also we worked through problems involving integrating under curves and surfaces obtained by revolution. I feel confident that the student will do well on her exam."
"Today the student and I went through two of the essays she's been working on. I asked her to make some changes to parts of both of them. We then went through a number of challenging geometry questions together in order to review what she's learned."
"The student and I first started with reviewing his grades from his latest assignments. He made an 85 on his biology exam (significantly better than his last years' average of in the 70s) and is getting high Bs on his homework scores. We then covered acute angles in geometry and lipids in biology. In our next session, we will cover his semester science project and his biology and geometry homework."
