Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We talked about applying Bernoulli's Equation to fluid flow problems. We talked about how Darcy's equation and the pump work can add terms to take into account in the mechanical energy balance. We worked on homework problems that showed these concepts."
"We had another good session. We went over photosynthesis in plants today. He seemed to understand the material fairly well in addition to some of the material from last week. I helped him with some question answering strategies as well. I left him with some math videos to supplement my lecture in addition to the chapter questions from the review book. We will be meeting at the same time next week."
"We talked a lot about equilibrium. We went on to talk about equilibrium in terms of acids, and went through his homework problems. Afterwards, we went through some online practice problems that he had."
"Tonight we started the subject of Animal Biology, moved through some phylums, some characteristics of animals, and organelles inside the animal cell. The student did a great job tonight getting back into the swing of things. She maintained a positive attitude as always. I will be sending her additional practice and we will meet again on Sunday. Good session!"
"We worked on concepts relating to her upcoming test: the processes of transcription and translation, as well as the enzymes involved and the specific binding mechanisms of mRNA and tRNA. We also went over mutation types and when mutations have an effect upon the expressed proteins in relation to the wobble base hypothesis. She seemed excited to learn and seemed to have a strong understanding of the material."
"We went over the student's practice quiz since she's taking it tomorrow. She knew how to do the problems except for the trapezoid one. I went over it and had her do an extra problem on it to make sure she understood. Then, we went over her biology homework and studied for the test tomorrow."
