Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"For this session, we reviewed for the student's Nutrients and Transport which covered the digestive, excretory, respiratory, and circulatory systems. She had a very solid understanding of the circulatory and respiratory systems, but we had to spend some time working on the digestive and excretory systems. It took some practice to get her to remember the digestive enzymes, and a little while longer to understand the function of the kidneys in the excretory system. She is doing really well with the current material."
"We reviewed combining our concepts and completing review packets. We also discussed many facts of biology especially when it pertains to plasma membranes, cellular respiration, and photosynthesis."
"We covered the study guide for the student's exam. She overall had a good understanding of the material and was very receptive to information. We talked about how to approach a question and how to answer a question. She will make flashcards for extra practice."
"Today, we started the topic of the different groups of plants (bryophytes, ferns, gymnosperms and angiosperms). We created note cards for the various terms in the chapter as well as go over the chapter assessment at the end. The student did well for just learning the material (getting about 70% of the assessment correct)."
"We reviewed chapter 11 in biology and went through the algebra review problem by problem. I'm sure the student will do well on her upcoming algebra test. We focused this week on taking copious notes to organize definitions in biology. Toward the end of the session, we talked a little bit about the binomial theorem."
"We met to go over the allele frequency and Hardy-Weinberg assignment that the student had for this upcoming week. We also discussed practice strategies for getting ready for the test on the 6th in Biology."
