Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student had the exam in biology the following day so we completed the practice test his teacher provided. The questions covered all the areas in biology and he answered almost every question correctly. I'm confident he will do very well on the exam."
"We went over her study guide for her chapters 19, 20, and 21. We covered material related to hypothalamus and pituitary gland. We also went over certain hormonal pathways such as the CRH->ACTC->Cortisol pathway. We then went over the thyroid gland and thyroid hormone function/pathway to secretion. Finally, we went over the adrenal cortex and its secretion of glucocorticoids (cortisol) and mineralocorticoids (aldosterone)."
"We had a general review for the student's upcoming exam. We discussed equilibrium and conversion of moles to gram when you have a reaction involving gas, we discussed phase diagrams with supersaturated and saturated salts, reaction kinetics, and energy of reaction with and without a catalyst, problems with Le Chatelier's equilibrium, diprotic titration, and colloidal systems. She seem to be prepared and understanding all the material for her exam."
"We went over old exam questions to review for the exam. We focused on questions that tied multiple concepts together. We will go over some more problems and strategies on Tuesday."
"Today the student and I covered torque, energy, momentum, position vs. velocity vs. acceleration, and vectors for her upcoming final exam."
"Today, I met with the student and answered some questions that she had before her test on Monday. Specifically, we went over some questions about predicting products of reactions like nucleophilic substitution (Sn1, Sn2), elimination (E1, E2), and nucleophilic addition to a carbonyl. I also gave her a guide sheet that she can use to determine between substitution and elimination mechanisms as a study tool. By the end of our session, we moved onto helping her with a couple of mechanisms. We will be meeting at least once or twice more this weekend to continue to review."
