Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"First session... AP chemistry. We covered a practice AP exam and just came up with a plan on how to proceed."
"We went over a homework assignment that focused on finding the average atomic weight of an element given its isotopic measurements. He had four problems that were basically the same so he really had it down by the last problem. After this, I explained to him the conceptual understanding of solving this problem. In other words, why are we doing this and what does it mean. After this, I went over some of the basics to reading the periodic table and how to make a Bohr model. He seemed to understand it well. He said he had a quiz on certain elements on the periodic table (name, abrev, number, protons, electrons) so I told him to make flashcards for those elements and go over them each day instead of cramming them in the night before."
"We did additional chemical kinetic problems. This time concentrating on first and second order reactions and their associated practice problems."
