Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Yesterday the student and I covered hybridization, Lewis Structures, and molecular geometry. Since her recent success she seems to be much more focused on chemistry, and is eager to comprehend new concepts."
"Reviewed how to calculate molarity, manipulate the molarity equation to solve for unknowns, and dilution problems."
"The student had a test on Monday that covered the bonding material we focused on in our first session, and we will focus on reviewing that test at our session next week. We moved on to the topic the student covered in class this week: phases and phase changes. We spent a good amount of time talking about how to interpret phase diagrams and heating curves and relating these graphs to the equations her instructor had been presenting in class. After our review, we spent the second half of the session reviewing two worksheets on these topics that her instructor had provided. She seemed to be very comfortable with analyzing both of these graphs on her own, but was still struggling a little bit with how to complete calculations using required equations. It seems that her knowledge of stoichiometry and dimensional analysis (which would've been covered very early in the academic year) is weak, so this is something that I will continue incorporating into each of our sessions as we progress."
