Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered ionic naming and covalent naming. This section mostly covered material for polyatomic ions and complex compounds made from multiple elements."
"During this session we went over chemistry. We looked at the various bonds and trends on the periodic table. We went over a packet the student got in class. Overall this session went well."
"The student wanted to focus on her quiz/test that was this week which covered naming elements and their symbols. She said that the majority of the test would cover a specific group of elements and that is what we focused the most on. However, I did throw in some of the elements from 1-40 to practice recall. For some of the elements, she was able to come up with ways to remember the element and symbol (for example, Pt - Platinum: Pretty tall platinum blonde). We reviewed over them and I made her several shorts quizzes to test how many she could remember. If given the element name and asked for the symbol, she did fairly well."
