Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we went over DNA and RNA replication. We discussed the discovery of the structure of DNA, complimentary pairing, and the composition of nucleotides. We also went over the process of DNA/RNA replication including major enzymes involved. We also discussed RNA translation. We also reviewed previously completed homework problems in preparation for an upcoming quiz."
"We covered the biochemistry and protein unit. We started with DNA-RNA-Protein theme. We then defined the different acidic names of their components. We then discussed complexities of protein structure: primary, secondary, tertiary, quaternary. We touched on mutations in DNA and will express this further in future. We then returned to the chemical properties that govern these structures. We discussed atoms, molecules, the three subatomic particles, charge, ions, polar and non-polar relationships. We will discuss hydrogen bonding in depth next time. We discussed electron density and valence electron organic relationships. We hope to introduce questions that can accurately describe many of these relationships working together at once. Next session we will transition into photosynthesis and cellular respiration."
"We spent the majority of the session reviewing some homework the student had. It covered the different types of cells (animal, plant, prokaryotic). He seems to know the information well."
