Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we covered Biology study techniques and some content review. The student feels like he has great grasp of the basic material. The test format is at a high level, but he's doing great!"
"The student is studying genetics in his class right now. He had questions about codominance and incomplete dominance. We also went over dihybrid crosses, and the ratios associated with P, F1 and F2 generations. We also discussed various diseases and their inheritance, like autosomal dominant, autosomal recessive, and sex linked diseases, Mendelian inheritance, and Mendel's laws."
"In the previous session the student worked on problems that covered a variety of concepts: Lewis structures, naming ions, identifying the geometry and hybridization of atoms, limiting reactant problems, resonance structures, Hess' law, and calorimetry problems. In this session, we picked up from where we left off and worked on the rest of the problems. Today we focused on electronic configurations, the wave-particle duality along with calculating mass from wavelength, and trends in the periodic table to determine reactivity, size of the atoms, and boiling point trends. The student worked diligently through all the problems and picked up the concepts very well. Using a chemistry book of my own, she was able to get a better grasp of the three-dimensional modeling and the trends. In addition, the student breezed through the Lewis structure and resonance form question, demonstrating mastery of the concepts from the last time. I am confident the student will do well on the test."
"The student had homework due for lab class this evening, and we went over that. She had to make exam questions and answers from all 3 midterm exams and the current topics that will be tested on the final. We scheduled another session for more review for the final exam."
"We spent the day going over labs at the student's home! We did one per unit and measured things to show relationships between different properties and how they all are interconnected. It was the first time I got to see her be creative (torques) and have fun and learn with a hands-on approach."
"We studied for the student's finals in reactor design and engineering analysis. We talked about two more of the book problems and worked on steady state in CSTR. We also went over both previous tests in his engineering analysis class. He followed very closely."
