Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student has a biology test next Tuesday so we worked on her study guide and completed all of the genetics portion: DNA replication, transcription, translation, mutations. She has notably improved in her understanding of these concepts since we first covered them 2 weeks ago."
"This session, we discussed evolution and natural selection. We reviewed the subjects of evolution as presented by Charles Darwin. We went further to discuss the concept of natural selection and its 4 tenets. We briefly discussed comparative anatomy, comparative embryology, and comparative biochemistry. We talked about fossils and how they applied to evolutionary trees. We also compared and contrasted the concepts of genetic drift, genetic flow, bottlenecking, and founder effect. We reviewed completed homework online. I further questioned him over all vocabulary presented in the problems. We also discussed why the wrong answers were incorrect and what they mean."
"We had an extended session to review for the students biology final exam on Thursday. Using the study guide, his textbook, and other resources from his class, we covered the major concepts in such units as the scientific method, ecology, cell structure and function, and more."
