Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We did a basic review of cell division based on the student's notes from class and we did a practice test together. She seems on track for learning the new material well. We spoke briefly about categorizing terminology to find the right answer in a multiple choice test."
"Tonight the student and I covered similarities and differences between the DNA and RNA molecules. We reviewed transcription, translation and the manner in which proteins are synthesized in the ribosomes. We discussed degeneracy in the genetic code and that the transcription initiation start site begins with a methionine. We covered post transcriptional modifications of mRNA and splicing and, finally, reviewed other roles for the RNA molecule in living systems."
"We did a slight review from last semester, along with basic understanding of new material. The student has a new biology teacher this semester, but the material is the same. I went over a study/test preparation strategy and how to schedule study time. I will begin to really start to challenge her next week."
