Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We finished going over all the material that will be on the student's test. We then reviewed the material from yesterday and did some more practice problems."
"We reviewed microbiology including phylogeny and physiology, then moved onto geometry working with similar triangles and the geometric mean."
"We covered the study guide for the coming quiz. We talked about cell division and stages of cell division."
"Today, the student did a great job. We went over the whole process of transcription and translation, in addition to reviewing briefly replication from last week. She told me she has a test on Tuesday, so if she wants to review again before her test, we can arrange for a session before that. I'm going to email her some more questions because they will help her understand what we went over and make her realize what she doesn't understand."
"In this session, we discussed the exam that the student had taken last week. I am going to continue working through some of her test-taking methods, because I am getting the impression that she doesn't always take the time during tests to give thorough answers and double check her work. We also went over the meiosis worksheets she had been given in class, which was helpful for her to understand these topics that she did not pick up in class. Next session, we will study for her upcoming quiz."
"Today, the student and I worked on chapter 20 in her biology textbook. We looked at current biological technology and were able to go into detail about how specific genes are isolated and replicated in laboratory settings starting from just a bacterial plasmid and eukaryotic cell. I am going to send her a resource on restriction maps and on cloning organisms. She seems like she is grasping the material very well."
