Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I went over the renal, nervous, and lymphatic/immune systems today. This constituted some of the most complicated information that he will have to study, so I advised him to go back over some of the information after our session. We will be covering the musculoskeletal, reproductive (with embryonic differentiation), and endocrine systems at our next session. He is doing well so far and coping well with the extended lessons."
"We discussed concepts of acidity and basicity in an aqueous solution and worked several problems to illustrate the concepts and to anticipate exam questions. We made plans to continue discussion of these difficult problems."
"We reviewed types of waves including electromagnetic, mechanical, transverse, longitudinal and sound. This session mostly involved reviewing definitions to prepare for a test."
"We covered absorption spectroscopy (Microwave, Infrared, and NMR) and one electron hydrogen wave function. The student has been determined to understand the concepts of Physical Chemistry. We focused on understanding the problem's big picture and strategies on approaching the problem. I suggested she do variations of the practice problems and compare the results to see the how the different wave functions affect the solutions."
"In this session, we focused on learning about angiosperms and flowering plants. We talked about the various adaptations and their importance in plant survival versus more primitive plant species. The student is grasping the plant material, so it should be fairly easy to go over the review next week for the exam."
"The student and I worked on a variety of organic chemistry problems. This was our last session before her final exam so we worked heavily on the topics she wanted assistance with most. These included stereochemistry based problems, which dealt with chirality and isomers of all kinds. We also went over reaction and mechanistic problems. She has a very good grasp on the major concepts in her organic class and has improved her intuitiveness with it throughout the semester."
