Session Summaries by Microbiology Tutors

Bellevue, WA Microbiology tutoring
For the first half of the session, we reviewed the student's lab report which involved synthesizing NaCl using two different chemical reactions. A lot of the lab report required her to balance chemical equations and find the limiting reactant. She would the use stoichiometry to find the theoretical yield and compare that to the actual yield of her experiment. I'm working on showing her why the shortcuts that she has been using for her stoichiometry problems don't always work and I've been showing her the correct way to solve the problems. She did pretty well with that after we did some practice problems together. After finishing the lab report, we moved on to the new material that they have covered in class. They started covering concentration equilibrium. This seemed to be a pretty easy topic for her and she didn't have too many problems with it. At the end of the session, the student said she felt pretty good about the material.

Continuing off yesterday's session, we focused in on some practice problems. In the previous tutoring session, we went over the concepts and filled in any gaps in understanding he may have had, and then we reinforced those areas with more practice today. We completed the review sheet provided to him by his teacher, and selected several problems from the textbook to finish as well. He reported that yesterday's session really helped him do well during the review session he had in class the next day. I could tell that he did quite a bit of work in preparation for both his class and for this tutoring session. Specifically, he developed the skill of drawing a picture which has really helped him better understand the equations he needs to write and solve. He is going to finish the practice problem section from the textbook in preparation for his exam tomorrow. I saw quite a bit of improvement since last session, and it was clear that he was utilizing the strategies we talked about when solving problems on his own.

The student's class has started covering taxonomy and has just begun covering domain and kingdom, so we read over the section in the textbook. Explaining taxonomy as a form of classification starting with vague similarities and moving down to specific traits seemed to be useful for the student. The class has not gone too far into the subject yet, so we also did some review for modern world history. We covered totalitarianism and extremism as well as the socioeconomic factors that can affect political stability. Using real-world examples has proven useful when covering biology and was also effective in clarifying the questions the student had about how wars start and what are the consequences on a political and economic stage.

To start off, I asked the student how her practice AP test went and if she had anything in particular she wanted to work on this session. She said it went well, but she didn't finish. I asked clarifying questions and found out that she hadn't really gotten a chance to work on any short answer questions. I suggested that we work through a sample set of them tonight so she could see what they're like. We used a sample set that came with the teacher's manual I have for the AP course I teach. The questions we went over dealt with equilibrium, reaction types, bonding and structure, acid-base chem, graphing, lab errors and their consequences, and drawing models. She did ok on some of the questions, but struggled on recalling a lot of concepts without prompting. She recognized that she needs to go back and study material more, but was glad she got a chance to see the short answers. I'm emailing her a copy of what we worked on to help her study.

Although we mostly covered chemistry, we covered some geometry as well. For chemistry, we reviewed the different solubility rules as well as how to balance chemical equations. In addition, we applied the different solubility rules to predict whether or not we would obtain a precipitate. For geometry, we discussed how to obtain the area of a rhombus as well as trapezoids by using different properties of triangles to obtain the parts necessary to get information we need to solve for the areas. These included Pythagorean Theorem as well as different properties of triangles. The student did not have any problems with any of the material, but rather needed a refresher of the material. After having a short review of balancing equations, he was able to solve all of the problems that required him to balance them out. As for the geometry portion, he was able to solve all of the problems once he understood how to set up the problem. He probably needs a bit more practice solving the problems however.

For this session we prepared for a free writing response the student had the following day. We focused on animal behavior, evolution, and ecology. We discussed many examples of animal behavior and how those behaviors make sense in the context of natural selection. We also discussed different types of ecosystems, what makes them different from each other, and how those differences would affect the living things in the area. This session covered a lot of "big picture" ideas within biology, using examples to describe major concepts that link together, and I think the student had a clearer understanding of those big picture concepts by the end of our session.
