Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We worked on the student's worksheets on stoichiometry, covering concepts of limiting reactants, theoretical yield and the relationship between moles, volume, and molarity to prepare for her test on Friday."
"Today we worked on reviewing for the student's Chemistry test. She did very well with the conceptual questions about phase changes, and seemed pretty comfortable with topics related to the ideal gas law."
"We reviewed carbonyl reactions. We also went over Grignard reactions, Diels Alders reactions, the Wittig reaction, acidity and basicity, and briefly covered spectroscopy."
"We wanted to use the tutoring session to make sure the student was ready for the upcoming Economics exam. The chapters were mainly concerned with the weight carrying party as a result of taxation. We examined in detail the chapters 19 and 20 of the Public Policy textbook that the student is assigned for class and for the exam. First off, we reproduced the main diagrams from Chapter 19 which had to do with Producer and Consumer burdens as a result of taxation on either. The elasticities of the demand and supply curves were then thoroughly studied with the student making a cheat sheet for the logic flow behind the re-equilibration of the price/quantity ratio following shifts in the supply or demand curve. Overall, it was satisfying to see that the student was able to reason by herself in most problems and provide quality and critical input when questioned."
"We discussed dihybrid crosses with complete dominance using Punnett squares. We also did some transcription and translation practice, discussing different types of mutations and how they affect the overall resulting protein. We are going to further practice Punnett squares when we are able to meet up again."
"Most of what we covered today was acid/base equilibria problems. He was struggling with the concept last time we met for chemistry, so we worked all of the facets of these problems. We covered ICE tables and mixtures of strong and weak acids along with solubility problems. We even did a couple free response questions he had from a practice AP chem test."
