Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I helped the student work through two chemistry labs. On the first lab, she needed assistance with doing limiting reactant and yield calculations. On the second lab, I explained to her how to determine solubility rules from an array of double replacement experiments."
"Topics and areas covered: Ion formation, balancing chemical equations; student was familiar with determining how to set up equations and formulas, just needs to work up speed. I introduced some key mnemonics in order to help her with memorization of ion solubility. I gave her practice exams on balancing chemical reactions; she did well on this."
"The student and I covered carboxylic acid nomenclature, inductive effects that cause increased acidity of carboxylic acids, and carboxylic acid synthesis from oxidative cleavage, Grignard and CO2, and SN2 substitution by NaCN to form a nitrile followed by hydrolysis."
