Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered amino acids, proteins, and enzymes, along with energy of activation of reactions. We reviewed lipids and carbohydrates, and the structure and functions of proteins."
"The student and I went over a lab from class with which she had questions. She worked through the experiment so that she came to better understand the concepts at work in the lab. We discussed molecular structures in simple and complex sugars, and I helped her to connect some of her class notes to the ideas being tested in the lab."
"The student and I completed quite a lot. She missed some biology class last weekend so requested I teach her the material on chemical reactions, acids/ bases and the pH scale. I reviewed the material and general concepts with her using the worksheets/ keys provided to her by her teacher but also encouraged her to get the class PowerPoint presentation notes from her teacher so she could read through the material in the way that her teacher presented it."
"The student and I worked through two apply projects and one practice for her Earth Science class. We just have one more section in this unit before the unit project and then one more unit before the class is complete! She did a really great job with the apply for the weather unit, which involved doing a quick lab where she had to take measurements of the current weather conditions and then input all the data into her own "station model." The last lesson in this unit and the last unit should be a breeze for her, and we will be done in no time!"
"The student began the session with practice pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics questions. She is truly excelling in the ability to explain the concepts tested by each question and applying her understanding to higher order questions. We reviewed physicochemical particle properties and the Noyes-Whitney dissolution equation."
"The student continued working on practice problems, finishing of the multiple choice section. They would likely benefit from a bit of review on what types of rocks are found in which parts of the earth and its crust."
