Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we finished the rest of his review sheet which covered a bit of viruses, evolution and the human body."
"We reviewed oxidative phosphorylation and the entire electron transport chain. We also talked about osmosis. We reviewed probability in precalc and talked about what we would focus on in the future for precalc."
"We focused on studying for the final exam the next day. Over the weekend, he had the assignment of finishing defining terms in his study guide and completing the information given. While he had some gaps in the material still that needed further explanation, he made a significant improvement in the understanding of the material and took the initiative to find out how classmates were also devising a group study guide for the class. This was excellent progress for him, and he talked about how needing to find the material was helpful for his studying. During the session, we went through and elaborated on concepts he was missing or needed further explanation on including sodium/potassium pumps, talking about change in membrane potentials and flows of ions through channels and their linkage to physiological events, and muscle contraction and the process involved with cell signaling through electrical and chemical gradients. The concepts were difficult, and while he still needed to work on the material after the session, this I believe helped us focus on the most difficult sections with guidance."
