Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went through her worksheet. It was about circulatory system. I explained the concepts and different parts of the circulatory system. We also went through the diagrams to make sure she understood how blood flow from the lungs, heart, and different parts of the circulatory system. She understood them and she is doing well."
"We learned the combined gas laws and worked on worksheets that involved dealing with the different gas laws along with a review of stoichiometry. The student is doing great!"
"In today's session, we reviewed the respiratory tract. We reviewed structures of the upper and lower airways. We discussed the purpose of the respiratory tract. We then reviewed how oxygen is transported to the tissues. We also discussed dysfunctions of the respiratory tract such as COPD, emphysema, bronchitis, pneumonia, pulmonary edema, pneumothorax, and pulmonary embolism. The student also labeled a drawing with various organ names."
"The student and I discussed her class schedule over the next few semesters to ensure that she would have all of her classes taken at appropriate times. We spent time discussing schools she would like to attend and how to block out a study plan for the GRE. We also started to review the first chapter in her chemistry book, discussing significant figures, units, the metric system, etc. I agreed to find her some additional practice problems. The session went well overall!"
"We have finally caught up to speed in class. Today we reviewed amperes law more in depth for a solenoid and circular loop. And began discussing inductance. I'd have to say the student has good understanding of the material but needs more practice problems."
"Specifically, the student and I covered certain organic reaction mechanisms through her problem sets. We then went through H-NMR problems, which were coupled with IR spectroscopy problems. And we finished by working through stereochemistry problems. For our next session we will continue to work with the different forms of stereochemistry and how to identify each."
