Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today, the student and I went through the discussion questions from her penny lab. We calculated the weight and price of the zinc and copper components of a penny and discussed what happens when a notched penny is left in HCl overnight. Everything was very straightforward for her. I left a few reminders about unit conversion and rounding values to 3 significant figures, but otherwise there were no struggles. The session went very well."
"During this session, we went through a review packet for the student's upcoming exam covering topics in transcription and translation. In addition to this were also topics concerning viruses and viral replication."
"We covered many different aspects of momentum mass and heat transfer. I answered many questions regarding the concepts of momentum transport. I provided a better and clear explanation of topics the student was concerned with."
"The student and I covered brachial and antebrachial muscles this morning. Many students find it very difficult to commit these muscles to memory; however, by teaching the student how to compartmentalize all of the muscles that exist in the brachium and the antebrachium, the anatomy is much more manageable. The student and I plan on meeting again tomorrow evening to cover lower limb musculature pretty extensively. As always, I am looking forward to helping the student in our next session!"
"The student and I reviewed chapter 4 on what her professor had covered in class. She did worksheets for three chapters. She has an exam on Friday, so we will be meeting on Thursday for some pre-exam review. She is doing great at retaining information."
"The student is continuing to improve with her academic knowledge, and is getting much better at connecting information and relating it to other parts of the body. Her confidence is growing, and her study skills are improving. She is able to act as the teacher in the session, ensuring she understands the material well. Her questions are becoming more specific and demonstrate a higher understanding of her knowledge. I am very pleased with her progress."
