Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The first half hour was spent on math problems. These all involved applications of the Pythagorean Theorem. He understood the concepts but needed some guidance as to how to approach the problems. The rest of the session was spent on science, first completing an H-R graph assignment and then reviewing the first two chapters on astronomy."
"We studied for the student's test on Thursday. We covered meiosis, genetic disorders, Mendel's experiments and blood types. We worked on the end of chapter assessments and he is going to finish those on her own. We'll meet tomorrow to discuss those as needed."
"The student has a test on Physical Science (chemical and molecular bonds, etc.) tomorrow; he was most concerned about memorizing the vocabulary, so that's where we focused our energy. He demonstrated good study habits by presenting me with flash cards he had created yesterday. His ability to memorize the material was impressive, but I was able to help him with the tougher ones by using associative techniques. When I see him tomorrow, I hope to hear about his experience with the science test."
"It was great to meet with the student again today. We started with a basic review of DNA structure and built upon what we previously covered. Specifically, we began covering the details of DNA replication. She now has a solid understanding of directionality (i.e., 5' - 3') and the manner in which nucleotides are added to a growing strand of DNA. We were both caught off guard at how quickly the time passed!"
"More Angular kinematics. Really solid work today. More practice, and you will be awesome. Biggest advice from today is to make sure to keep you + and - in mind. Remember, this tells you direction of the movements (or angle direction)."
"Newton's second law of motion was covered. The student had no difficulty with number sense or fluent calculation but had minimal difficulty with application of force and motion formulas. No scores or grades were seen. Thank you for sending such a pleasant student to my attention."
