Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I completed lesson 6 section 1 in his biology book, regarding elements and atoms. He managed to do very well."
"Specifically we covered biotechnology, DNA replication, evolution, genetics, and molecular genetics. The student was not provided with a textbook for this course, rather just an assignment booklet. I managed to use my MCAT biology review book as a means to a reference. She was able to identify the material, yet lacked the ability to express deep understanding on the material prior to my input on the topic. The student needed help the most with comprehending short anecdotes which were required to read prior to answering certain questions. I went over studying tools to best digest the short anecdote, which included underlining important information, writing shorthand notes on the side of the paragraph which capture the main concept, and revisiting the short anecdote when unsure of how to answer the question. The student primarily went over the homework assignment she needed to complete for Wednesday's class. She showed improvement from question to question. The application type questions were the most difficult for her, however she showed progress as she encountered more questions similar to these. She expressed the desire the learn, improve, and to thoroughly complete her work."
"We reviewed further for the student's upcoming final. She did very well today and should be ready for her final."
