Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed her old tests in preparation for her exam. We focused on different kinds of reactions, balancing equations, and knowing if reactants will precipitate."
"Today's session consisted mainly of working problems related to the gas laws. The student expressed confidence in working the problems. We are working a couple of lessons ahead of the class work, so the student will have a lot of practice with these problems before her next test."
"Today we practiced ideal gas laws in preparation for an upcoming test (we reviewed Charles's, Boyle's, Avogadro's, and combined gas laws). We also reviewed Dalton's law of partial pressures. We completed a test review and did practice questions."
"We studied more for her final. We worked through several practice problems on an old final. We need to cover more on how to determine what equations to use if not given explicit instructions."
"Worked on conservation of energy, work energy theorem, and some rotational motion. Student needs to practice her algebra a bit, and her rotational motion stuff isn't perfect. But she's not having any extraordinary difficulties and is progressing well. At this point, I feel like we've reached some stability. The material is not necessarily intuitive for her, but she works on it and gets it with my help."
"In this session we covered VSEPR theory along with molecular shape and polarity. At the end of the session we touched on sigma and pi bonds within compounds."
"We did some good work on nuclear decay, as well as heats of formation, a little bit of sig figs, and nomenclature."
"Finding out rates of reactions and orders of reaction, reaction types (double displacement, combustion, decomposition etc.)."
"The student and I went over acid/base chemistry today, and her last exam. We went over how to do acid/base problems and worked on some examples."
"The student has a test tomorrow; these are the topics we covered in preparation for the test: Pv=nRT Vapor pressures rates of effusion Ideal vs real gases Volatile compounds Raoult's law"
"Today we went over physical chemistry, quantum mechanics, shapes of simple molecules, and electronic structures of N2, O2 and F2, H2O, NH3 and CH4."
"We worked on homework problems related to the RLC circuit. This is a new concept for the student so it was not a surprise that she struggled with understanding the concept initially. Towards the end, she was able to work simple RC and LC circuit problems without much assistance."
