Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

The student and I worked on electrochemistry. We reviewed oxidation, reduction, redox agents, net ionic reactions and electrochemical/galvanic cells. I prepared some practice questions for the student to work through as well for electrochemistry.

We went over important information found on the periodic table, such as group properties and atomic number, mass, and oxidation states for specific elements. The student was engaged, and I gave her real-life examples of where we can find these elements to make the material relatable. I also introduced her to note-taking so she can develop this habit at an early stage.

The student had told me previously she wanted to learn more about chemistry, so today I taught her about the atom, a mole, qualitative analysis, and balancing chemical reactions. We then talked about possible science projects she could do next year. I taught her about flame tests, gravity, and general rules for experiments. Afterwards, we worked through the rest of the math chapter we had started. It consisted mostly of percentages and decimals.

We covered equilibrium, solubility, and equilibrium constants, with an emphasis on practice problems. We will return to partial pressures and Kp constants for gas reactions next meeting.

This was our last session for this semester in preparation for the student's chemistry final. We mostly focused on calculation-heavy problems, such as calorimetry energy conversions. On her own, she felt more comfortable reviewing vocabulary, so we tried to focus on more-challenging areas. We also focused on the topic of obtaining electron orbital representation (p, s, and d levels) for various atoms in two forms: fully written and with the previous noble gas. After this session, she was more prepared for the final.

We conducted a pre-test review of reaction kinetics, rates of reaction, order of reaction (zero, first and second order) half life, nuclear decay, equilibrium reactions, Le Chatelier's principle, Arrhenius equation, and rate limiting step.

We reviewed for the student's final. We covered: atomic mass conversions to grams; uses and identifying properties within the periodic table; balancing and identifying chemical equations; pH, including hydroxide and hydronium ion concentrations; molarity of substances; Lewis structures; and relationships among electrons, protons, and neutrons.

The student and I reviewed acids and bases. We worked through the assigned problems for both chapters. He seems to understand most of the concepts. He had some trouble working through the weak acid/base pH problems, but after working through a few together, he seemed more confident with them. We started talking about buffers, titrations, and the Henderson-Hasselbach equation, but I don't think he feels confident with those topics. We plan to spend more time on those topics during the next session.

The student is taking the SAT II in math 2 and chemistry. We are going to be meeting a lot over the next two weeks, so we are going to alternate between math and chemistry. Today we started with chemistry and got through the chapter on rate laws and about half of the equilibrium chapter. I assigned homework from those chapters, and from the beginning chapters of the book that he should have no problem with.

We talked about combustion analysis and stoichiometric equations, and ended by covering reactions in aqueous solutions. I think she has a good understanding of precipitation reactions, and is ready to move on to acid/base chemistry.

In the session we went over the student homework and focused on balancing equations, ideal gas equations, and mole/gram conversions. She picks up fast on the topics. Overall the session went well.

How can a tutor help you master Chemistry?

Chemistry can be a challenging subject at any level. It requires students to demonstrate not only mathematical knowledge, but also to utilize their imaginations in visualizing reactions and molecular interactions far too small to see with the naked eye. Additionally, the vocabulary that one must learn to discuss even its main concepts, much less understand them, can easily seem overwhelming: atoms, elements, molecules, reagents, solutes, and moles—the list goes on. Are you having a hard time in a chemistry course, or do you just want to brush up on your chemistry knowledge? Customized chemistry tutoring and lessons will allow you to build a foundation in chemistry. Varsity Tutors can match you with an excellent chemistry tutor in the Washington DC area who can make the subject intuitive and fun!

All of our chemistry tutors are proven chemistry experts who are also skilled at explaining its most abstract and unintuitive concepts in ways that just make sense. Your personal chemistry tutor will meet with you when and where it is most convenient for you, and come up with individualized lesson plans that address your particular concerns. You can even choose to have your chemistry tutoring online to best fit your busy schedule. You can spend as much or as little time on a concept as it takes you to master it, and your enthusiastic and supportive tutor will be there to offer helpful advice and strategies for tackling whatever type of chemistry problems give you trouble. Individualized preparation and teaching approaches mean that your chemistry tutoring experience will be tailored to your unique needs and learning style.

Varsity Tutors offers chemistry tutoring in Washington DC at high school through college levels. We’ll help you learn chemistry through one-on-one tutoring in the comfort of your own home or another location of your choice. We have brilliant tutors with chemistry backgrounds available to help you ace your chemistry course.

While mastering chemistry is essential for moving on to more advanced science courses, you may be finding it to be a challenging subject, especially if you’re trying to master it on your own. Fundamental concepts in chemistry can seem counter-intuitive to most students. And, while they might get the answers ‘right’ at the beginning through simple repetition, it’s difficult for them to progress in more advanced science courses unless they truly understand what these key concepts mean.

Whether you’re looking for help with specific chemistry problems or struggling with the subject in general, an experienced chemistry tutor from Varsity Tutors is here to teach you how to succeed. After talking with you about your concerns and learning goals, your tutor will quickly assess your proficiency with the material, identify your areas of confusion, and create a customized program designed to get you back on track.
