Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered material for her biology exam that focused on cellular respiration. She expressed interest in this material and seems to understand it very well. She has a good understanding of the processes and all of the components of the processes. Based on our two sessions, I think she will do well on her exam."
"We started off today's session talking about the student's first exam; What was on it and how she felt about her preparedness. I was so glad to hear that she felt confident about the test, and now we just have to wait and see for the results! No matter what the grade, we agreed that feeling more comfortable with the material is definitely a step in the right direction. We moved right along with the next module, on Proteins. Discussing function and structure, we covered nomenclature to chemical make-up. We created a mnemonic device for all the protein functions and talked a lot about various types of amino acid R-groups. Just skimming the topic of polarity, we will delve into this subject deeper next time. We ended the session with her answering the post-lecture questions, which helped reiterate what we had covered. She did really well on all of the questions! Also, I challenged her to try taking light notes during lecture, so as to keep focused better."
"We covered DNA replication and protein synthesis. The student was good at understand the system. She was engaged and seemed interested in the content. I then assigned her additional practice before ending the session."
