Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student wanted to focus her time on her upcoming lab that she is going to be doing tomorrow in class. She had to read through the lab and answer some pre-lab questions. We worked through these questions but I could tell that she either hadn't heard these terms before or she didn't remember them from class. I explained the lab and what it was going to measure and I think that she got the general idea but likely not the entire concept. After going through the lab, we discussed her class overall. Her current understanding of the material, based on her worksheets/homework and questions that I asked, is limited. For her cumulative final, the plan is to review all the material and perhaps even teach it in a different way to help make the concepts stick a little bit better."
"We went over how to work with Lewis structures, how to calculate formal charges on atoms, and different forms of resonance structures."
"Today we covered Lewis dot structures and the basic rules for why molecules form with the bonds and geometries that they do. We also finished up chapter 5 in Algebra."
