Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered the topics of transcription and translation. We looked at how the process works on a molecular level, as well as their larger significance in biology. We reviewed replication and compared the similarities and differences between replication, transcription, and translation."
"The student and I explored the wonderful life cycle of fungi. We used her textbook to talk about reproduction of fungi, how fungi are classified, the ecological impact of fungi and how fungi are used in society. She was able to answer several textbook questions and so I expect she will do well on her exam on Friday. She also wanted some help on how to find information the current research regarding gene therapy and heart regeneration. I shared several reviews, primary publications, websites and online videos with her to help her research these topics."
"We worked on two labs dealing with genetics, reproduction, and inheritance. One lab focused on the inheritance of traits and how we get half of our genetic information from each parent. The other lab introduced karyotyping and how looking at chromosomes can predict certain diseases."
