Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Reviewed unit six for a test next Wednesday. Unit six is primarily about chemical reactions. First we learned about the two types of reactions: endothermic vs. exothermic, and how to write the equation for each. Then we reviewed phase diagrams. We will continue with unit six review next week, and will keep practicing balancing reactions."
"We went over the acid/base dissociation constants/ equilibria for the weak acids and weak bases. Also went over calculating the pH and ka/kb for the weak acids and bases. We practiced many problems together and I gave her some problems to practice at home."
"We went over new concepts from class in the student's notes: how variables like temperature, concentration, catalysts, and state of reactants can affect the rate of the reaction. We worked on some practice problems with energy diagrams, then went on to review concepts from our last session like order of reactions. We did a few problems from that as well. He expects that he will have a worksheet from class to work on next time."
