Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we covered the rest of Chapter 3 on Stoichiometry. We went through 4 of the example problems (regarding mass/mole conversions, equation balancing, limiting reagents, and percent yield) together, and then I observed him solve the subsequent practice problems. He was able to answer all of them correctly, at a moderate pace. I can vouch that he understands the concepts in this chapter well enough. I should also note that he is very good about showing his work and considering units, which can be hard. I assigned about 3 hours of homework this time to review on Monday. Our sessions next week will be Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and we will try to cover the next chapter on aqueous solutions."
"Solutions: definitions and applications of solute, solvent, mixtures, saturated, unsaturated, and supersaturated solutions. Electrolyte/Non-electrolyte solutions. Percent by mass and molarity. Application of molarity and dilutions to problems."
"Student and I reviewed empirical and molecular formulas in addition to going over the calculation of solutions. I emphasized the importance of canceling out units to keep track of the equation. His comprehension of the material increased the more problems we worked on together also. He has a lot of practice problems to work through, if he does all of them I think he will do well on the exam."
