Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Briefly recapped photosynthesis and energy flow in the cell. Main topic of this session was cellular respiration - glycolysis, Krebs cycle, electron transport chain, lactic acid cycle. The student did well with very abstract, higher-level material. A good session on probably the most difficult topic in the AP biology class - will follow up on photosynthesis and cellular respiration especially in order to help him perform at his max on his year-end test."
"Covered wave/particle duality, photoelectric effect, momentum of photons, DeBroglie wavelength, and energy of electromagnetic waves. There are many equations to deal with, and they're all quite similar. After a few iterations of similar problems, he began to catch on and improve markedly."
"The student is preparing for an upcoming science benchmark. We went through the first half of the chapter today. Concepts in these sections include pressure and density. He took notes on important topics, formulas, and units as we went through the sections. I also stopped frequently to discuss what was meant and to give relevant examples. He was interested and seemed to grasp the concepts."
