Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today was the final day before the test for the student, so we did a total review of every topic that would be on there. We went through the textbook, study guide, and our personal notes. Now she just has to work on memorizing and retaining the information for the test and she's good to go!"
"The student is on to DNA and how the cell replicates. I've stressed the difference and similarities between meiosis and mitosis. She will need to draw the picture of the 5 phases of them and be able to say what is happening during each phase."
"As the student is now covering the atom and molecules in her class, we looked at the different ways that molecules come together and the different bond strengths. From here we took the concept of electron motion and discussed how it works with electricity and looked at comparisons to the human nervous system. At times I will pause and ask her questions to see if she can make the connections between material covered and real world aspects. I left her an assignment that deals with elements, nutrition, and vitamins so that she can see how the elements play a role in the human body. She is making great progress and I hope to push her to see more than what is just in the book. Next week we are going to build molecules and see interactions, as well as go over a few videos that will detail the different styles of bonding (ionic, covalent, van der walls, hydrogen etc.)."
