Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Worked together on understanding rates and rate laws for solving chemical kinetics problems; covered concepts of activated complex, reaction order, and rate determining steps; covered concepts of half-life, rate laws, and rate constants."
"The student is learning Photosynthesis in class. She is doing well with the vocabulary of the unit but she is struggling with the chemistry formula of respiration. She also had difficulty with the structure and function of leaves. We completed an online program on photosynthesis which showed how the molecules are rearranged from CO2 + H2O to O2 +C6H12O6. Once the student saw the sugars created she was able to make the link between the term autotroph/producer and the production of food. We also created a virtual diagrams of leaves in an online program which allowed her to see O2 and CO2 going through stomas. The program also shows the function of chloroplasts. The student said she felt more confident about the concept."
"We covered homework problems and concepts from Chapters 5 and 6. The homework covered the concepts of disinfection, pH, hardness, and design parameters for water and waste water treatment plants including HRT and equipment sizing. The student understands the concepts; however, to do well on the exam it will be important to have the equations and typical design parameters available on the note sheet."
