Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today was our last review of the year. We reviewed the major topics and solved some complex problems."
"I helped the student study for her chemistry test on Friday. She had a review packet that she worked on and she seemed confident. We went over particle-mole-gram conversions and when to use molar mass, etc."
"The student and I started the session by going through chapter 10 of his AP chemistry book. We discussed intermolecular bonding forces, including London dispersion forces, dipole-dipole interactions, and hydrogen bonding. We then talked about the properties of liquids and solids and how intermolecular bonding plays a role in the properties of these two states of matter. We also discussed Bragg's law and its use in x-ray diffraction. The student wasn't sure how much of this chapter was going to be included on his test after break, so he preferred to also spend time reviewing trigonometry for his pre-calculus class. He needed help understanding the difference between radians and degrees and understanding the unit circle. We also reviewed the formulas for angular and linear speed and how to solve word problems asking for these parameters. He had difficulty with these word problems in the beginning, especially converting from revolutions/minute to radians/minute, but he got the hang of them quickly."
