Session Summaries by Physiology Tutors

Richmond, VA Physiology tutoring
Today, we went over the most recent chem test that the student took last week. I clarified concepts such as strong acids and weak acids at the same pH, the definition of the p in front of H and Ka, and we went over the only necessary info to find the pH of a weak acid or base. We also reviewed test-taking strategies, and I told him to not get stuck on one problem but rather skip it and come back so he does not rush through the rest of the test and miss easy questions. During this past test, he did that. I also think he tends to second-guess himself, and that can relate to his grasp of the information, so I suggested ways to overcome that. We also discussed titration charts and the value of pKa in relation to acid strength. Overall, he always has a positive and upbeat attitude to learning and is eager to learn from his mistakes. I think he does need more concept review before tackling problems.

The student and I worked through his physics homework on nuclear fusion and nuclear fission. We covered how to calculate the energy released in each type of reaction and the different types of decay. We also covered how to calculate half lives. We spent the last 5 minutes of the session checking his chemistry homework on dilution. He said he got an A on his last physics quiz, but didn't do so well on his last chemistry quiz.

We conducted practice with IUPAC system of nomenclature of compounds. I reviewed aspects of understanding the difference between ionic and covalent compounds to aid in the naming. Understanding aspects of the formulas and charges was also a focus in this short review exercise. I also completed some practice of stoichiometry and converting with moles, grams, and particles. In addition, we completed and overview of types of the 5 basic reactions to prepare for next session.

The student is starting to work on genetics in her biology class. She missed the class where they went over DNA and replication so we talked about the process that happens during DNA replication and then we went over the central dogma which is how we get proteins from DNA. DNA is transcribed into RNA and then RNA is translated into proteins. The only concept that she was struggling with was translation. After we drew out the process of translation and talked about the structure of tRNA, she understood how it worked. She had some worksheets on genetics, so we reviewed those together. One of them had to do with basic central dogma questions and she finished that with ease. We talked about heredity, genes, and how genes are passed on to offspring through DNA. The other worksheet involved identifying the type of mutation that occurred between two strands of DNA. The student did not need any help at all with the mutation questions. Overall, she is still doing extremely well in biology and has a high A in the class.
