Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
Acids and Bases: Titrations and Buffers (Weak Acid/Base + Strong Base/Acid & Strong Acid/Base + Strong Base/Acid), Solubility Factors (how does pH influence solubility?, common ion effect, and relation between solubility and Ksp). Worked on POF for this chapter, and focused particularly on solubility questions.
We covered how to find confidence intervals for z tests, t tests, proportions, and chi squared. We also discussed the differences between the use of the different tests and when to use each one. The student had a list of book problems suggested from each section by the professor, so we solved one problem from each section of the first chapter and one review problem. It was suggested he try all the other problems for each section, and we will cover the next chapter during our next session.
Today we worked on homework set #3, dealing with diffusion and frictional coefficients. This set was a little tough for her to work through at times, but the student continues to do well with the homework problems.
Just some basic discussions about state and path functions, intensives and extensive properties, the first law, enthalpy and entropy. The class starts tomorrow so we should have a better idea of the material when we meet again on Thursday.
This was our first session. The student has an exam today 9/19. We went over her notes and went through a practice exam she had. Overall this session went well but I believe that we need more frequent sessions, there were a lot of questions she was stumped on. She was having trouble understanding the calculus involved. We are aiming to have one session a week if not bi weekly.
We went over how to determine the rate of a chemical reaction. Also expanded on 1) the concepts of rate order, 2) how to calculate average reaction constants, 3) how to calculate reaction order based on experimental data, and 4) how reaction rates relate to products and reactants and their respective concentrations in instantaneous measurements.
Worked on: Third Law of Thermodynamics and Entropy
Last session, I had given her some instruction on how to prepare for open book exam. She did a great preparing her book. She said she felt more confident during the test.
We continued work on problems involving friction on inclined planes. By the end of the session the student understood every problem with different scenarios involving inclined planes and friction (e.g. object sliding down or being pushed up a plane).
A great initial session, beginning with a review of some of classical physics - momentum, kinetic energy, etc., and then progressing into the introductory quantum material. Fortunately, the student's course is moving slowly. I think the most difficult part of chapter 7 is understanding the Eigen function and eigenvalue issues. I have done all of the homework, and he has a solutions book for it. It is a little difficult to interpret the uncertainty problems linguistically, but we solved them correctly nonetheless. Both of us plan to review basic calculus and differential equations. Chapter 8 will be much more difficult to understand. Also, the old exams are predictable for the upcoming exam, but only correlate with the homework about 50% or so.
We went over lecture notes the student had from his Physical Chemistry class since the semester started. I walked him through the concepts and gave clarifications, when necessary, on the topics of The First Law of Thermodynamics, The Second Law of Thermodynamics, heat, work, enthalpy, entropy and Non-Ideal Gas Equation: Van der Waals Equation. We also went over sample problems, which he solved correctly.
Helped prepare a lab report on her computer dealing with velocity and acceleration. Most of the time was spent trying to decipher the graphing program to accept her data points properly but eventually it was successful. The remainder of the time focused on practicing factoring trinomials. A technique I showed her greatly increased her speed in completing the homework.
This was our second session studying Physical Chemistry and Algebra. We first covered Physical Chemistry covering topics like: mass, weight, density, and how to work with graphs. This included the use of conversions from an earlier chapter. We also discussed the requirements for Chemistry by high schools. Then we started on Algebra working on sections 1.5 to 2.3. This again covered most basic topics from pre algebra such as forming equations from word problems. This session I also gave some homework to work through the more basic sections faster.
How can a Physical Chemistry tutor help you?
Physical chemistry is notorious for stumping even the most quick-witted students. The subject looks at chemistry from the perspective of physics, and is particularly interested in atomic and subatomic aspects of chemical reactions, along with such factors as force, rate, and energy. The phases of matter, electrical phenomena on the atomic level, and rate of reaction are all considerations of the discipline. So, if quantum mechanics just doesn’t make sense to you, or you’re having a hard time making your way through thermodynamics, don’t worry! Varsity Tutors can help connect you with a physical chemistry tutor who perfectly suits your needs and who can guide you through this fascinating but extremely complex subject.
These physical chemistry tutors have not only performed well in their physical chemistry courses, but they also are experts at explaining chemistry's most opaque concepts in ways that make sense, no matter how you best learn. Your tutor can meet with you in a convenient location, even online, at a time that suits your schedule, making physical chemistry tutoring as convenient as possible. He or she will take into account your initial understanding of physical chemistry, your learning style, and your concerns when designing lesson plans just for you. There’s no need to worry about keeping up with a class when working with your tutor—you can spend as much or as little time on a concept as it takes for you to get it. This makes private physical chemistry tutoring not only convenient, but extremely efficient. Each tutoring session can leave you understanding more and more of the material that once seemed to make no sense.
