Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over a study sheet of problems in preparation for a test this week. We went over problems focusing on acid-base chemistry, pH calculations, constants, and solubility including solubility product constant calculations."
"Today we went through the population ecology chapter, and started on the community ecology chapter. We went through the chapter assessment for population ecology and the student seemed to have a good grasp of the material."
"Today's session was used to discuss glycolysis and gluconeogenesis, and how these two metabolic pathways oppose each other in terms of products and enzymes which catalyze the processes. We also had the opportunity to discuss the types of enzymes and how they catalyze the detailed steps of both processes. We finished by seeing which hormones and substrates help regulate both processes, and what conditions favor which process to dominate. The student does well with memorization, so I am going to prepare a summary review for him on the processes of glycolysis and gluconeogenesis. I want to make sure that the primary purposes of both processes are very well understood, as his professor has emphasized that these are all that is necessary to memorize and understand. Our next session will be used to cover the pentose phosphate pathway and the citric acid cycle."
