Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today the student and I went over insulation of the sun, radiation, refraction, greenhouse gases, the greenhouse gas effect, long wavelengths, and short wavelength."
"Studied Unit 6 for test on Wednesday. We worked our way through the entire Study Guide packet. Reviewed Types of reactions: physical, chemical, and nuclear. Additionally, studied the types of chemical reactions: endothermic, exothermic, synthesis, decomposition, and single/double replacement. Also practiced balancing equations and predicting products and reactants of those equations. Reviewed phase diagrams of water and unknown substances. Student does a great job of identifying phase changes vs. temperature changes! Also practiced more stoichiometry. Great work tonight!"
"We covered the fundamental statistics behind quantitative chemical analysis. We made sure that all of the work stayed in order and I explained why certain steps and methods were carried out. The student conveyed a very good work ethic and was very clear about her thought process. My strategy was to build confidence by asking questions about each step and have her tell my the "why's" behind them. I had no concerns besides building confidence."
