Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over how to calculate the exchange of energy using specific heat, heat capacity relative to phase changes, and change in temperature. This was the area she needed some review on. We also covered solvents, solutes and solutions, practiced converting volumes and concentrations to moles of product using molar masses and mole ratios."
"We covered acids and bases, the Bronsted Lowry and Lewis models, how to calculate pH from [H+] and vice versa, the pH scale, and how to set up and solve problems involving Ka."
"We covered multiple topics: atomic and periodic trends, ionization energies, the octet rule, ionic bonding vs. covalent bonding, diatomic and polyatomic ionic bond formation and nomenclature, metallic vs. ionic bond formation, structure and how it relates to malleability, ductility and conduction, electronegativity in covalent bonds and how polar bonds are formed, and covalent bond nomenclature. We covered a good deal of information, greatly helped by the student's retention of chemistry concepts. I was glad he welcomed the idea of sending him sample chemistry problems to reinforce the material."
