"Reviewed/Finished covalent bond material in PPT_ChemicalBonds_14 and thoroughly discussed differences between ionic and covalent bonds; Went over WS_IonicBonds and finished WS_CovalentBonds together; The student improved in drawing molecular structures, and was able to expand that idea to drawing more complex molecules based on valence electrons (beginning discussion about formal and partial charges); Assigned WS_Unit03Review"
"The student did great today. He worked on an assignment for his science class where he had to write 15 multiple choice questions and five open ended questions, and provide the answers. We worked together to word questions differently and provide details in his answers. He listened attentively and completed the assignment. He's doing great."
"This session was on the day of the student's first lecture. I spent the first half of the session on the professor's PowerPoint, going through definitions and providing context and examples, particularly examples that professors use to stump students. The second half of the session was spent running dimensional analysis problems and giving an introduction to chemical properties. The student has a solid grasp on the material."
