Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered many disparate subjects including immunology, development, and Hardy Weinberg equilibrium. The student is doing very well and has a great mastery of the material."
"The student was working on Kirchhoff's rules and how to apply them, as well as with resistor and capacitor combinations. We spent the most effort on applying Kirchhoff's rules, and I think she made some gains in understanding how to use them. She set up and solved a final problem using those very well."
"The student has a huge test on Tuesday, so we reviewed colligative properties, solutions properties, and acid base properties. Her teacher gave her a study sheet listing out what students need to know and we went through it point by point. I gave her a handout I made on molarity, molality, and mass/volume percents to practice those concepts on. I also gave her a set of 40 multiple choice questions based on the study sheet so she could practice those for the test."
"The student and I reviewed the life science concepts of cell processes and energy. We reviewed vocabulary having to do with cells, and compared and contrasted processes. We found memory tricks to help her memorize the material. We completed the study guide, and she did very well on the material. I recommended that she review the material again before the test."
"The student and I reviewed the practice exam and summary lecture for her exam tomorrow. She will need to remember how to design a primer to amplify a DNA break, that informative individuals/matings are heterozygous for both the disease and SNP/SSR/ASO allele, lac operon components, and F plasmids. She understands the material and is aiming for a B on the exam. She should review the concepts listed above. During our next tutoring session, we will review the most current material being covered in lecture."
"The student and I reviewed the structure of a neuron, action potential, and environmental science, as he has a test in the morning. We specifically reviewed practice questions from AP biology and AP environmental science. He grasps the material reasonably well."
