Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Our session started out by reviewing material we have covered during our last session. The student was able to recall most of the basic information without having to refer to his notes. The remainder of our session was dedicated to covering new material. We have continued our plan of building review guides by using the book as a guideline. He has been assigned to read the first 15 pages of the chapter before our next session. These pages covered the material we covered during our session and will help to enhance his understanding of the main concepts. It will further allow him to identify the key concepts we focused on during our session."
"The student and I reviewed the ecology unit for her upcoming quiz. We worked with her notes and PowerPoint slides from the class as I quizzed her on key concepts. We then switched and started to go over cellular respiration. She had missed these lectures, so I started with the basic concepts and used YouTube videos to demonstrate how the electron transport chain and ATP synthase work."
"Today the student and I went over key principles of cell division: mitosis, meiosis, and how they compare and contrast. We also reviewed the types of mutations (insertion, deletion, and substitution), and she was able to identify them when given nucleotide sequences. We also began to discuss Punnett squares and set a plan to meet once more time before her test. We will attempt to review all of the information her instructor highlighted before the exam."
