Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over Ideal gases and the student's test that he got back. He did well on the test and it seemed everything he got wrong was just minor errors, not necessarily because he didn't know the answer. We will continue to work on concepts this Thursday."
"We had a good review session on photosynthesis, cellular respiration, DNA replication and transcription, which are all topics that the student had shown a bit more shakiness on when we were working through practice test questions. She readily remembered most of the material we talked about today, and in particular had a very solid recollection of cellular respiration, which we went over again and added some more detail to that."
"Today we reviewed a practice test in AP Biology. She did well today, and began to gain more of an understanding of how to approach and eliminate wrong answer choices. We covered many general fundamental topics in AP Biology. I suggested that she continue to practice questions and go over the correct answers but also why the incorrect answers are wrong. She showed a positive attitude and a strong interest in learning the material. I believe she is getting better and stronger at understanding the fundamental topics and gaining the confidence she needs to answer questions."
"Today we worked on resistive circuits. The student had a bit of confusion for the first half of the lesson regarding what was really going on in the circuit, so we talked about it quite a bit and did a bunch of examples. By the end of the session, he was doing much better!"
"Today, we completed a final exam review for the student's fluid mechanics course. She was able to set up most of the problems given, however at times she stumbled on applying more than 1 equation to solve a given problem. Once she was given a few hints, she was able to solve the problem. We will work on solving more questions tomorrow, and before our meeting she will be working on her old quizzes."
"We started the session with the student teaching me what he learned in his most recent classes. I would ask him questions that really tested his knowledge of the material and forced him to think deeper about the subject. After this, we worked on several ICE problems that he had not completed before."
