Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we went over a few extended response questions from old AP tests that the teacher provided. The student's main challenge was not identifying what equations to use and how to use her concepts when reading a long question stem. We went in detail what to do and how to address what the question is asking. As always, the emphasis was on remembering units with answers. Then we went over concepts like entropy and how it relates to enthalpy and Gibbs free energy and what it means to be spontaneous. I then left her with some practice multiple choice questions in energy and thermodynamics to prepare for her test on Wednesday."
"The student needed review on R and S configuration. I will supply 3-4 practice problems to work on this. We covered several organometallic reactions. We worked on the Heck reaction, Grubbs metathesis and the Sharpless epoxidation and worked through predicting the products for these reactions."
"Reviewed naming techniques and methodology regarding polyatomic and mono-atomic compounds. Went through her worksheets/ reviews regarding this in preparation for an upcoming quiz. Went over "best practice" setup processes to help with creating compound formulas from names and then going the opposite way in naming compounds from a given formula."
