Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today's session was rather productive. We went over how to name ionic and molecular compounds, since this was a topic on her homework. We then switched gears and talked about bond enthalpies and how to calculate the net change in enthalpy for a reaction, because this was another portion of her homework. The student picked up on everything quickly today. Tomorrow we will finish up the rest of the topics on her homework."
"Tutored the student on topics of heat changes in solutions (calorimetry); discussed definitions of temperature and heat capacities of different substances; discussed Hess' law and heats of chemical reactions and how to calculate them using increasingly complex sets of data. Student is eager to learn concepts and how to apply them to typical test and quiz questions. His grades have improved."
"We reviewed a review sheet and practice problems on solutions chemistry. Topics covered: making solutions, diluting solutions from stocks, saturated, unsaturated, supersaturated solutions. Also colligative properties such as vapor pressure, freezing point depression, and boiling point elevation."
