Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"In this session, we reviewed some basic stoichiometry and limiting reactants. The student really wanted to concentrate on the concept of the mole and how to use mole ratios to determine the number of moles of a product or reactant from the same information from another product or reactant. The student worked through several problems in both areas."
"We did logarithm expressions in Trigonometry, and did some extra credit for Forensics. We also reviewed for his Literature test on Friday on "Lord of the Flies.""
"For the final exam review, we went over: the ideal gas law, Charles's law, Avogadro's law, Boyle's law, RSM, effusion, enthalpy, entropy, free energy, units, endothermic, and exothermic; we reviewed past quizzes."
"We focused on equilibrium concepts and worked to prepare him for that DBA. We also completed two pre test assessments. The student is making nice progress, but I would like him to complete DBAs in advance so there is always an assessment for us to do during the session!"
"The student and I had a good session. We worked on chemistry this session. His teacher has started to give material out to study for the final. We talked about balancing chemical reactions, naming chemical reactions, and naming molecules. We then worked through some redox reactions, and several stoichiometry problems. Our next session is scheduled for Sunday."
"For today we reviewed exam questions concerning Thermodynamics and their applications. The most challenging aspect of today's session was understanding the applications of entropy in both systems and the reactions. Mitchell was very easy to work with and quickly The student understood concepts he was unclear of beforehand. We ended with the introduction of Physical Thermodynamics and their uses in gas-piston systems, and I assigned him reading to cover the 4 processes of transfer (Isobaric, Isochoric, Isothermal, Adiabatic). Next time we'll be reviewing a Practice Exam and working on questions from any other areas he needs to review for his final. I look forward to working with him next time!"
