Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered cell signaling and pathways. The student needed help with overall concepts of cell signaling, but she was motivated to learn. I included notes and review material for her to practice her concepts. We reviewed a few practice questions on the topic, and she did well and answered them correctly. We also reviewed the wrong answers and why they were wrong, as well as her strategy on how she answers these questions."
"We went over the proteins that are involved in DNA replication and DNA repair. She is progressing very well and is starting to pick up on the specifics. We also went over mutations and what types of mutations are there."
"We have covered electric field, potential and potential energy concepts for point charges and parallel plates with the student. She was able to feel familiar with the equations in terms of how to make them work in different type of questions, as we went over the worksheet her teacher had provided."
"We covered different types of endocytosis, including autophagia, receptor mediated endocytosis, phagocytosis, and pinocytosi. We watched real life under the microscope videos of phagocytosis. The student gave a 10 minute review of the topic we discussed and NAILED IT! At the end of the presentation we discussed essential key points. For the next session the student will review all of the presentations and give a review of all of them with as much detail as possible. Also, I invited her to watch videos that will help the understanding. And finally, I added an exam of all of the images we've reviewed together without the names. She will have to fill in the blanks (this will help with memorization and processes). She has done an extraordinary job!"
"The student and I covered a wide range of topics from Snell's law of refraction to half-life decay, fundamental forces of nature, and different types of radioactive decay. Overall, I was very impressed with her progress in tonight's section. She seems to be doing very well, and I believe she is well prepared for her quiz tomorrow. I would suggest continued practice with setting up Snell's Law problems as to fully comprehend the information given in the problem."
"Today we finished the photosynthesis chapter and did the free response questions. The student did really well on the multiple choice and free response. We then moved on to the cell division chapter. We covered mitosis and meiosis, focusing on the differences between reductional and equational division. We did the multiple choice questions and free response during the session. Again, she did really well on these problems. However, she does need to pay attention to pacing herself and make sure that she only spends 10 minutes on the long free response and 3 minutes on the short free response. She needs to do a practice test and the human physiology and human reproduction and development chapters before our next session on Monday."
