Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed the Ideal gas law and moved on to calculating the density of gases, the molar mass of gases, as well as Graham's Law of Effusion, the difference between diffusion and effusion. We reviewed and compared/contrasted heat, temperature, velocity of particles, evaporation/boiling, and pressure. We discussed radioactivity and the difference between atomic number and atomic mass. We reviewed empirical and molecular formulas."
"I went over simple harmonic oscillators and applying them to different physical systems. I also explained where the math comes from and why it describes the problem."
"We reviewed general relativity and frames of reference. We looked at how the speed of light does not change no matter what frame of reference it is being viewed or measured from. We also looked at how time and distance or length is measured for things moving at relativistic speeds. We focused on looking at the relativity equations and how to determine which frame of reference measures the relativistic quantity and which measures the 'proper' quantity."
"During this session the student worked on stoichiometry/dimensional analysis problems, as well as balancing different types of equations from previous sessions. Additionally we touched on endothermic/exothermic and limiting reagent concepts, which the student had no issues with. I went over a very formulaic approach to these types of problems and the student picked it up very quickly and gained confidence by the end of the session, just in time for her test tomorrow."
"During this session, we worked through a worksheet that covered materials to review for the test. All of the questions were about topics that we have been reviewing in his review guide. We finished all of the questions. I feel like we made progress today and he did a good job."
"We began preparing for upcoming exam on Monday. We organized a study schedule and focused on the weaker areas, specifically SN1, SN2, E1, and E2. I gave her a few lists of certain nucleophiles and leaving groups and some tips on how to answer the questions."
