Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on his internal assessment. However, we mainly focused on preparing for a test he has on Monday about the reproductive system and neurobiology. We discussed important diagrams for these topics and practiced with test questions. We also reviewed important application examples using the IB syllabus. I left him with additional practice questions."
"Today we studied antimicrobial drugs, and also covered bisphosphonates. We covered the basics of calcium homeostasis and the roles of the thyroid and parathyroid glands. I also helped him with his test-taking strategies in order to perform better when taking multiple-choice examinations."
"Today we reviewed an 11-page lab comparing the anatomy of shark, turtle and human. We reviewed basic terms and anatomy, and the student had a great attitude. I left her with some links to more documents with terminology."
"The student and I worked on preparing for her upcoming geometrical optics physics test -- reflection, refraction (Snell's Law and total internal reflection), and using mirror equations. As usual, it was a pleasure working with her on her physics."
"Today, the student and I worked on some mechanisms, SN1 SN2 E1 E2 conundrum, as well as kinetic and thermodynamic products. I included the strategy of letting her work through the questions herself."
"The student and I covered Newman projection, the rules for identifying absolute configuration of chiral molecules and E/Z isomers. We went through a practice exam and answered the questions. The concept for each question was clarified and the student was confident about answering similar questions."
