Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Student received a 97 on latest quiz. Completed a review of types of reactions, states of compounds based on solubility, and balancing chemical equations. Completed at least 15 practice problems that also incorporated ionic and net ionic equations. We conducted test corrections on nomenclature. In addition, we conducted a short review of polyatomic ions."
"We went through the research we had already done for her English paper, looked at the assignment sheet for her Atmospheric Sciences term project, and planned out how she needs to study for Anthropology."
"Today we mainly reviewed Ampere's law. The student had a pretty good handle on it and we got through the material pretty fast. She is still learning cross products and the direction of the magnetic field, so I will find some external resources to help her visualize these."
"We reviewed significant figures, formula mass, and moles. The concept of what a mole is was hard to grasp, so that will require more review. The student was attentive when the material was interesting. He asked questions for material that was confusing to him. I provided a summary sheet for him to remember the rules for significant figures. I left him with extra practice to work on memorizing the polyatomic ions. He is doing well with the homework required of him to catch up on his work. He's opening up to me. We both feel more comfortable working together."
"The student has an exam on Tuesday covering human anatomy. We discussed epithelial tissues, types of tissue, muscles, the circulatory system, the digestive system, and how kidneys function. We briefly discussed different hormones that play roles in water retention again. We covered digestive enzymes and different cell types in different organs. We also covered the importance of calcium in different organ systems. We covered the nervous system."
"First we shared the school material that helped me to understand the topics covered by the teacher. Next we started with the definition and structure of DNA and RNA, followed by the function of these two molecules in the body. I let the student draw and write so that the session was interactive and stimulated her imagination. The session continued with the RNA structure and function, synthesis of DNA, and also protein synthesis. She showed interest and is willing to learn about the topics."
