Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I revised the math quiz schedule, and then I helped her make and review her English language vocabulary flashcards. I then helped her continue making her biology portfolio, reminding her of what she needed to do to learn the material (read objectives, vocabulary, and summary, and then answer essential questions). I gave her an overview of cell respiration in Mandarin so she'd have a better idea of what the textbook was saying."
"The student and I worked on all aspects of the test but focused particularly on math. He is very quick at picking up new concepts and is eager to learn. He is not nervous about the test. I forwarded him some vocabulary worksheets, which he can look over before our next session."
"1. Reviewed basics of cellular respiration and photosynthesis as it relates to chemical equations. 2. Reviewed / discussed oxidation and reduction of molecules in both reactions. 3. Reviewed / discussed membrane / membrane proteins and compared ETC of cellular respiration and photosynthesis. 4. Discussed processes of cyclic and non cyclic electron transport. 5. Diagram of non cyclic electron transport. Next session due: T-chart of comparing cyclic and non cyclic ETC. Wednesday- Essay Questions Compare cyclic and non cyclic ETC, discuss chemiosmosis, and Calvin Cycle."
"The student did a few sample sets for me today so that I could properly identify where she may need the most work. We discussed comma rules and some math concepts, and we made her flashcards for them."
"This was my first session with this student and it went very well. We covered two of her recent lectures and she said she has a much better grasp of the material now! We covered protein synthesis, the Calvin cycle and photosynthesis."
"For the student's final pre-February-test session, we switched things up a bit. Of course, we still did a bit of a logical reasoning work on the question types that he particularly wanted to practice, but we followed that up with a look at the rarer types of logic games (pattern and circular sequencing), a general discussion of test-day strategy, and a just-for-fun logic game (the classic "Einstein problem"). He feels very confident for Saturday's test, and for that I am glad. He's worked hard, and should have a good result headed his way. Good luck!"
