Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today's session covered the Bohr model of the hydrogen atom. We discussed electron energy levels, energy absorption and emission, wavelengths and frequency of electromagnetic radiation and related the concepts to the hydrogen atom spectrum. We reviewed the student's entire worksheet. At the conclusion of the session, the student expressed confidence in understanding the topics we covered today."
"Today we continued reviewing the equilibrium constant problems from last week and then moved on to acid/base. We talked about Arrhenius vs Bronsted-Lowry acids and bases, pH and pOH and how to calculate both; Kw, Ka, and worked practice problems for these concepts."
"We covered Beer Lambert Law, the difference between myoglobin and hemoglobin, and the saturation curve and equation again. She has a test tomorrow in this class so we mostly reviewed as much as we could about these subjects. She was much less stressed this time than her first test. She seem to have a better grasp on these topics and enjoyed it more. I didn't go over anymore strategies but rather reminded her of some of the ones we went over in previous sessions so it would be fresh in her head."
"We reviewed transcription, translation, and DNA replication. The student needs to memorize names associated with DNA discovery and molecules involved in DNA replication such as DNA polymerase, helicase etc. She also has to review how tRNA becomes attached with an amino acid."
"During this session we covered the immune system. The student was mostly struggling with the basics of the material. He was very receptive to the material and improved his understanding greatly. During this session we used the techniques that we normally do including drawing out the material, going over it, and quizzing. I left him with many resources as usual to continue to quiz himself. I have no concerns and found his improvement to be encouraging."
"The student and I worked on a skeletal system comprehensive review, timed labeling, and functions. He tends to forget the integumentary system review, so we went over that in depth."
