Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Reviewed balanced equations, net ionic equations, and complete ionic equations. We also reviewed some geometry."
"The student worked on his chemistry outline for the next chapter, which will cover electromagnetic radiation and the electronic configuration of atoms. We practiced using some of the basic equations in order to solve sample practice problems. The equations we used were for finding wavelength and frequency of light and also the energy associated with a photon of a particular wavelength or frequency. He made an 80 on his chemistry test last week, but both he and his parents would like higher scores in the future. We then worked on geometry. Last week, he made a 44 on his geometry test, which he will probably be able to retake. We have never worked on geometry before, but we are going to concentrate on it more. We went over material that was on his test, and the main problem was understanding how to use sine, cosine, and tangent to solve triangles. Also, we briefly reviewed the Law of Sines and Law of Cosines again. I asked the student to bring the exam from last week home so that we could go over it together."
"The student and I spent our time working through limiting reactants. He is really comfortable with the idea and is set for his test, which we will review for tomorrow."
