Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we established a plan to cover material and concepts through March and then transition to test taking strategies and practice during April. Once the plan was established, we dove into foundations of nucleic acids, DNA, and RNA as a whole. We discussed the process of DNA Replication and the enzymes needed for that to occur. We also discussed the process of transcription and modification. The student was able to take the information I gave her and apply it when I would quiz her with questions. She is quick to pick things up and learn ideas. She was also able to see some patterns in the material and could explain it to me."
"We went over her homework that she had finished up which is due tomorrow. We went over her answers to check them for accuracy and discussed how we might set up her analyses for her next assignment. She will be starting this and, specifically, she will be computing a correlation matrix for the next time we meet."
"Today the student and I went over some aspects of the weather. We went through his textbook and highlighted some of the various aspects of the weather including, the wind, currents, insulation, two point, humidity, barometric pressure, isotherms, isobars, and topographical maps. His main concern is that his teacher crafts his tests In a way that is not conducive to his learning and tries to trick students on technicalities. My solution for this is to highlight key important phrases in his text and make a review sheet with them. I will begin using the learning tools aspect of the website to help prepare him for the exams."
