Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered oxidation numbers of elements and molecules. I showed the student how to find the oxidation numbers, and based on these to identify reducing and oxidizing agents. We also worked with classifying reactions as oxidation or reduction. He understood the concepts very well after practice with homework problems. Great session!"
"The student and I worked on stoichiometry and balancing equations. We worked through a number of problem set questions that dealt with identifying limiting and excess reactants. She was very good at balancing equations but needed to gain some more confidence in identifying the necessary steps needed to solve the problem. The fundamental understanding is there and her confidence in solving the problem step by step will come along with more practice problems, which I recommended."
"The student and I reviewed Oxidation/Reduction Reactions, specifically, how to balance them, as well as balancing complex reactions in acid or base. When I arrived, he was very concerned as he did not have a strong grasp of the material. He was very receptive to my explanations. We spent the session going over concepts and doing practice problems from a textbook that I brought with me. Overall, he felt much more confident with the material at the end of the session."
