Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today the student and I covered the gas laws and various applications with them for her quiz tomorrow. She understood the material very well, and she should do well on her quiz tomorrow."
"We worked on 2 worksheets that had to do with balancing equations and using mole to mole ratio. We worked on 4 problems, and I gave the student 2 problems to do as homework."
"We continued working on stoichiometry, again focusing on practice problems. The student is getting the hang of it."
"We continued with the student's chemistry review sheet. We almost finished the second page. She is going over it in class on Monday and Wednesday and we will go over it again Monday afternoon and Thursday afternoon to prepare her for her exam Friday. She is doing well, a few mistakes here and there. I think as long as she finds practice problems online and really dedicates herself to studying and understanding the material she will do well on the final. We plan to meet on Wednesday evening to review some math and again on Sunday as her math Final is next week's Monday. She shouldn't wait for me to begin reviewing math however, she should start as soon as possible. This way we will have more time to go over what she doesn't know on those dedicated study sessions; the same goes for chemistry."
"Today, we continued with redox reaction. I provided problems identifying the reducing/oxidizing agent and also balancing equation in both acidic and basic conditions. The balancing of half reactions was also reviewed, which gave the student the practice he needed. The first few problems were done with looking at notes and then without looking at them. We reviewed hybridization of atomic orbitals and how to correctly draw Lewis structures. The student understands concepts very quickly and is able to follow with ease."
"We reviewed for the state assessment test. The student is very intelligent, so instead of reviewing section by section I felt it best to review through practice tests and then stop and look up questions she wasn't sure about. We followed up on the redshift concept in particular. She is very knowledgeable in the concepts. Next time, we are going to focus on the short answer portion of the exam and what type of answers they are looking for."
