Session Summaries by Biology Tutors

Crown Point, IN Biology tutoring
The student and I finished her first hormone packet, reviewing the three main pathways she needs to know (CRH, TRH and prolactin). We reviewed some of the biochemistry behind how thyroid hormone is stored and why iodine is important for this process. We talked more in detail about goiters (hypothyroidism) and how basal metabolic rate relates to the thyroid. We began her second packet and discussed the role of the parathyroid glands (briefly) and the adrenal glands (in depth). We discussed the role of cortisol and epinephrine and how they both function to make more molecules available that our bodies use for energy. We also briefly began discussing the role of insulin and how it's regulated.

We reviewed the types and examples of irony that we discussed last week. In addition, we read part of Swift's Modest Proposal as an example of verbal irony. Afterwards, we began looking at some sample multiple-choice questions for the AP US History test. In the process, we came up with a few strategies for maximizing the number of correct answers.

Reviewed solving quadratics, which was familiar to the student from high school, and then spent most of the session on solving 30-60-90 and 45-45-90 triangles, which is new to him. We aimed to get him a solid foundation in the relationships among the sides and angles.

Today, the student started a new book with new sight words which included 'here' and 'comes.' Because she is doing well with her sight words, I wanted to practice authentic writing with her. I asked what her favorite part of the story was and she said it was when the yellow go cart was the winner because she was a girl. I had her write a sentence which started with the sentence stem "I like the ________ because __________." She wrote, "I like the yellow go cart because she is a girl," which she wrote by herself by stretching out the sounds in the words, with assistance for those words that she was unfamiliar with. In math, I introduced her to addition using math problem solving.  The addition sign and equal sign were both explained. I had her read each sentence first one by one and then draw a picture of what it said. By doing this, she was able to find the total number by adding all the images together.

The student and I reviewed what he had done on his own while on vacation. He took a quiz over chapter 5 and earned 100%. He did a good job of capturing the events of the chapter. We spent some time working on vocabulary. We ended the session by beginning to read chapter 6 together. Overall, he has done well in comprehending this text.

Today we continued with enolate reactions including conjugate versus direct addition to alpha, beta unsaturated aldehydes and ketones. We also studied the michael reaction, Robinson's Annulation, and addition of organocopper reagents. The student seemed to be understanding the enolate mechanisms much better and he got really good at saponification and decarboxylation reactions.
