Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered some of Chapter 15 which was gene expression and regulation. Then we went over the student's practice quiz to help study for her upcoming test. She knew a lot of the material, and I encouraged her to make flashcards so she can work on memorizing the information. Once I explain the concepts to her, she remembers and does well with the problems."
"The student and I reviewed for her test in evolution today by covering a wide range of questions ranging from population genetics to speciation and the origin of life. We worked with her textbook doing the practice questions in the back, and then I "quizzed" her when we did all of the questions. I expect that she will do well on the exam."
"We covered cell theory; organelles and their function; and the evolution of prokaryotes and eukaryotes. I think the student was having trouble understanding how all the organelles tie into the bigger picture. She understood what each organelle does in a vacuum, but I wanted her to appreciate how each of their specific functions help the cell be an efficient machine. I told her how to write notes for biology by trying to find parallel metaphors to help remember certain concepts."
