Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

We reviewed for the student's test tomorrow. It's on the digestive system and excretory system. She knew most of the information from our review last Thursday. At the end of the session, she probably needed to go over a few of the terms and structures for the excretory system, but otherwise should do well on this exam.

The student and I looked at 4 videos and went through the concepts and answered questions on them. We picked out the important concepts and reviewed them so that she can do well on her quiz over the material. Also, I helped her with the negative feedback concept so that she can finish writing her paper on the pituitary gland. I went through her essay and made a few corrections as well.

Session information for 09/04:
The student and I covered more basics on eukaryotic cells and the functions of organelles. In particular, we were on an assignment that had him design a mock Facebook page for the nuclear pore. Part of the assignment was describing the location of the organelle, the functions that the organelle carries out, and the interactions with other organelles. The assignment was a good way to show how organelles integrate with one another in carrying out the functions of the cell.

The student and I spoke about cell membranes and how chemical or electric differences on either side of a membrane can cause the movement of ions or water. We went through several cases and considered when ions would move, when they would not, and when water would move across a membrane. This includes discussions about both active and passive transport, and how both affect the outcome of ion concentrations.

We went through the chapter on biomes, and talked about questions she should ask herself when she outlines each chapter. Then we went through the questions at the end of the chapter and talked about how to focus her studying. She needs to work on memorizing vocabulary, and on biogeochemical cycles.

We worked on the topics of lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids. The student reported that he failed a quiz and a test since our last session; after talking with him about it, he felt that he performed well on the information that we had covered together, the information he did poorly on were the subjects covered in class since our last session.


-Evolution, continental shift, evolutionary time, extinction, Darwin's contribution, Lamarck's contribution.

-Genetic drift, gene pools, population, diversity, natural selection, variation, geographical separation, fitness, speciation etc.

-Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection.

-Adaptation, mutation, founders effect, bottleneck, random and non-random mating, assortative mating, positive and negative selection, stabilizing selection, directional selection, disruptive selection, sexual selection.

-Akaryotes, prokaryotes, eukaryotes, archaea.

-Central dogma: DNA-mRNA-Protein, self replication, transcription, translation.

-Phenotype, genotype, dominant, recessive traits

-Single nucleotide polymorphism


-Pre Calculus: probability, basic principles and examples.

The student and I discussed carbohydrates and complementary/supplementary angles today during our session. In biology, we discussed mono-, di-, and polysaccharides, and how they create energy in our bodies. Additionally, we measured angles and determined the values of unknown x and y in right, acute, and obtuse angles. He reports he did well on his biology exam on water and pH last Friday, and he hopes to bring his exam home to go over in our next session.

Met with Student A and Student B for the first time. General tutoring for 9th grade curriculum: Biology is the initial focus for both students. The students have different teachers with different approaches to the material. Student A had assignment due for 9/19 on the first chapter, which included significant vocabulary. Student B had not yet been assigned text material. I worked with both in addressing the concepts and methodology of science as introduced in their text. Good attentive students.

During today's session, we worked on preparing the student for her biology test on Monday. In order to prepare, I helped her work through all the chapter review questions for the chapters she would be tested on. This process was actually rather quick, mainly because the student has a strong command of the material. That said, she did struggle with identifying certain fundamental concepts behind evolution, so we spent some time discussing these. Overall, the session was encouraging, and bolstered my confidence in her dedication to her studies and high scholastic ability.

This session focused on the first homework. We were able to find and analyze a scientific news article, and complete the homework assignment. At the end of the session we had a little time left to go over a few practice test questions.

Since the student did not have any algebra homework, I assisted him with his biology assignment. He had a test review, which we completed using his notes and a few internet searches. He has no textbook, neither in print or online, so he must rely completely on his notes, which were only partially complete. I worry that he is going to struggle with this kind of system. After we completed the review, I quizzed him on the material. He was remembering more as we went along, but still needed more repetition before he would be prepared for the test.
