Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Because the student has been having some trouble with biology we devoted this session to that subject. The chapter she is on now contains the topics of glycolysis, the Krebs cycle and the electron transport chain. This chapter contains a lot of terminology and sometimes she is a little weak with that so I brought some work sheets and found some animations on line and showed her the process very thoroughly and used the work sheets to check how much she absorbed."
"We worked on cladogram and dichotomous keys today. We were able to review information that was covered on her quiz as well. She feels that she scored well on the quiz she took yesterday. She shows confidence in her work and understands the concepts easily. She completed the Chapter 17 questions with little help. I gave her some practice to make a dichotomous key with six objects of her choice. We will also begin working on material to help her with preparing for the state assessment coming up. We will spend the last 15-30 minutes of each session to prepare for the test."
"We reviewed cellular energy, specifically photosynthesis and cellular respiration. We also did some practice problems. The student is still unsure about both concepts, especially the Krebs Cycle, so we will continue to review that next session. I suggested she do some practice problems on her own."
