Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I reviewed the bones of the skull, the five steps of neural reflexes, the four types of reflexes and the difference between ipsilateral and crossed extensor reflexes. We finished by reviewing the difference between alpha, beta, theta and delta brain waves. She was able to take me through the different steps of the reflex arc and tell me the difference between the pattern and significance of the different brain wave patterns. I am very confident that she will do well on her upcoming exam!"
"We went into the urinary system. Talked specifically about kidney function, internal structures. In depth conversation about nephron anatomy and filtration pathway. Went into breaking down net filtration pressure equation and glomerular filtration rate and how they correlate. Also discussed the different transporter proteins involved in the different portion of the nephron tubule (ex. PCT, Na+./H+ antiporter vs. nephron loop thick ascending limb N+/K+/2-Cl- symporter). Student had an exam on Monday. Her grade increased from before we started working together. She was very pleased with outcome. Will send her information to use for studying for the exam on Friday."
"We covered the first half of a lecture on Cell Biology and Histology: -basic organization of the cell -functional units of the cell -organelles and their function -cytoskeleton and its makeup -DNA and RNA"
