Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
We covered Chapter 3 of the MCAT Biological Sciences book discussing biochemistry (proteins, nucleic acids, lipids, carbohydrates). We went through the chapter kind of quick and each page I looked for tricks I remember encountering or devising myself to study. For example, based on all of the MCAT passages I've read I know that they like to use hemoglobin and insulin for discussing proteins. They can ask questions of primary, secondary, tertiary, quaternary structure, disulfide linkages, Sanger sequencing, etc. I told him about this and many others while we reviewed the chapter.
The most enjoyable part was the practice quiz at the end of the chapter with both freestanding and passage-based questions. We really took our time here and I told him he should do that for now, then practice speed later. He needs to focus on questioning his foundation by discriminating between answer choices. The more he comes up with sound logic doing this, the stronger that knowledge becomes. Later on he'll work on speed. In a similar vein, we discussed general strategies, how to spot trick answers, how to attempt to eliminate many answers at once on a Roman numeral question.
All in all, very great time. We covered a lot of biochemistry but also some organic, physical chemistry, and general chemistry. I am very excited for the next session! The student is very smart and I think he will excel on this year's MCAT with me helping him."
In discussing some of the cognates of the word roots, it became clear that he would need help with verbal, so I suggested that he grab 10 words a day from any number of websites to enhance his vocab. When it came to the endocrine system itself, he was a little wary of my etymological approach until he began to see how understanding the names of things informed rather than confused his understanding. I assured him it would take a little review, and to say or think out the full names of molecules rather than their acronyms until he knows them cold.
He will read the extra slides on the female reproductive system and the web resources I have created to see if he can follow it now that he understands the anterior pituitary. If he needs my help, we will discuss reproduction and embryogenesis. If not, we will begin with the kidney."
