Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

Today we went over genetics, Gregory Mendel and his experiments, dominance, probabilities, Punnett squares, and variations in inheritance (incomplete dominance, co-dominance, etc.). The student seems to grasp these concepts pretty well. She got a B on her past test, which is an improvement. She made minor mistakes that she understands.

The student and I covered 3 subjects for his postponed biology exam. We reviewed meiosis, plant reproduction, and animal reproduction. He was very well-prepared. He did a great job staying sharp and prepared for this new exam. I quizzed him further and provided some details to fill gaps in his knowledge, primarily regarding reproduction.

Today was a great day - our best tutoring appointment so far! It was a "2 high five" session! Topics covered: diffusion, osmosis, water balance, passive transport, transport proteins, and active transport.
We covered 1/2 half of chapter 5. I asked him to be ready to review the second 1/2 of chapter 5, and to be prepared for a quiz during our next study session on all of chapter 4. He also has a lab to turn in tomorrow that he said he will finish at home.
Great session - and looking forward to helping him get ready for his unit test.

We continued with genetics and did an extensive pedigree problem that relied on her knowledge of inheritance patterns. We covered the different kinds of dominance and a few of the key heritable diseases that her class discussed.

We went through her Geometry homework on interior and exterior angles of polygons. She seems to have a good handle on this. Then we worked on her Biology lab where she identified fossils.

Today the student and I reviewed cell signaling and differences between endocrine, paracrine and autocrine. We also discussed the difference between electrical and ligand gated. Lastly, we talked about the difference between G-protein coupled receptor and tyrosine kinase receptors. The student had wanted some extra review on the material.

The student has a test on Wednesday and we reviewed all the chapters that were covered. He had questions over immunology and action potentials, as well as the ear and the nervous system. We went over questions he has on content and did a quick review on the endocrine system and animal behavior. He seems to be more comfortable with the material.

The student and I went over Earth History for her Biology test on Wednesday. We went over concepts such as fossils, macro evolution, HOX genes, and early life on earth up to about 3 billion years ago. She had a pretty clear understanding of the majority of the concepts and was able to repeat back to me the vocabulary after reviewing and explaining them once to twice. She was very eager to learn, and attentive for the most part. At the end of the session we completed a book quiz which she answered all correctly!

During today's session, the student and I split our time between biology and English. On the biology front, we worked on ecology. We discussed the hierarchy of biological systems, the dynamics of food chains, the principles of energy loss, and the nutrient and mineral cycles. She did well with this material. Next, we looked at English. Specifically, we focused on how to read a 18th or 19th century novel.

The student had homework assigned for the subject, and so we went over the material that it was covering and answered 5 homework questions. She answered the questions correctly and did not have any questions on the topic.

The student and I worked on two new power points that his teacher recently went over with him. The subjects included DNA synthesis, transcription, and translation. We did a review worksheet at the end of his session to review his material. He feels he did well on the last exam with an 86, but is shooting for a 90 or 92 for this Monday's exam. We will meet again this Sunday to get ready for his upcoming exam.

Today, the student had some geometry homework to review. We were able to address all of her questions. She is working on the Pythagorean theorem. We also worked through a biology lab write-up from an experiment she had completed in class. She is working on cellular metabolism. The dependent variable was carbon dioxide production, which is a byproduct of cellular metabolism and therefore indicates successful metabolism. The independent variables were sucrose and glucose. Her lab group had accidentally not added the yeast to the 2nd experiment with sucrose. The results accurately reflected this by maintaining an even carbon dioxide level. She was able to finish the lab and has a great understanding and ability to interpret the results.

While mastering Biology is essential for moving on to more advanced science courses, you may be finding it to be a challenging subject, especially if you’re trying to master it on your own. Fundamental concepts in biology can seem counter-intuitive to most students. And, while they might get the answers ‘right’ at the beginning through simple repetition, it’s difficult for them to progress in more advanced science courses unless they truly understand what these key concepts mean.

Whether you’re looking for help with specific Biology problems or struggling with the subject in general, an experienced Biology tutor from Varsity Tutors is here to teach you how to succeed. After talking with you about your concerns and learning goals, your tutor will quickly assess your proficiency with the material, identify your areas of confusion, and create a customized program designed to get you back on track.
