Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"In this session, the student and I finished discussing plant science. We learned about the pollination and fertilization of plants. We also discussed the format for Paper 3 of her IB biology exam. Paper 3 focuses on the options that she learned in class. We looked at a paper 3 that was about ecology."
"Topics Discussed- Organization suggestions and final exam planning- Right hand rule- Magnetic field from a wire- Torque created on a wire loop from a magnetic field- Magnetic Flux introduction"
"We talked about the building blocks of fats, proteins and carbohydrates, as well as general information regarding readings food labels and recommended daily requirements. We also discussed some micronutrients and the idea of phytochemicals. The student was eager to learn and had great questions! Overall, we just discussed the information. This was a great session."
"The student and I had a good session. We went over every single test topic very briefly. We did several different example problems, and I provided him with several questions that I felt would likely appear on the test. We also talked about what things he should focus on studying for the rest of the day before going to take the test."
"During our session the student and I reviewed population growth. Some of the key concepts were birth and death rate, population growth calculations, and the effects of environmental factors. We also reviewed how abiotic vs. biotic factors affect a particular population. The student is doing well with this portion of her biology course. Although it was an introduction to population growth, she had a very good understanding of the subject matter. Her attitude was positive and her parents reported an increase in her scores. Overall her progress has been steadily moving in the direction we would like."
"We've been making progress on both class projects and homework. We're currently pushing through material on waves, though there have also been homework sets assigned on so many different topics it'd be difficult to name all of them quickly! Don't worry, though; we've scheduled enough time to easily get through everything! See you next week."
