Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Covered concepts molarity, molality, solutions (solvent/solute), saturated, supersaturated, miscible/immiscible, high/low vapor pressure, dilutions. Completed worksheet on Chap. 16 in textbook. Discussed real world applications."
"Today we worked on geometry for the student's upcoming exam. She wanted to review arc length, and area for circles and composite shapes. She had a good grasp on the material and was able to work through practice problems with little guidance. The only recurring mistake she made was mixing up area and circumference and we talked about ways to not mix those up. She seemed like she was confident with the material and ready for her exam."
"In this session we started out working on chemistry and percent yield calculations with a worksheet that the student was assigned for homework. We completed that and also worked through an example I had given the student to solidify the concept. We then moved on to geometry in which we went over a review of quadrilaterals. Personally I have been working with the student on totals being the sum of all the parts. He still has minor trouble grasping this topic but we will continue to work on this and I have full confidence that he will soon pick up on this concept. He has been showing great improvement through our sessions."
"The student and I reviewed dimensional analysis using length, volume, and mass units. We also worked with metric prefixes and converting numbers into scientific notation. Her understanding of the material improved during our session, and she just needs to work on differentiating between units of length and volume."
"The student and I went over her chemistry, but she finished it very quickly. For the majority of the session, we worked on organic chemistry concepts. She really seems to enjoy doing organic, and we have done quite a bit of work on it that exceeds her level. She should look into doing advanced chemistry or organic courses if they are available to her, as she seems to have little problem with chemistry."
"We reviewed the student's homework on calculation of heat (q = m*sh*delta T). We talked about how to set up these problems and the theory behind each step. He is very comfortable with working out answers once questions are setup. His issue is with setting up problems (needs more time reading on theory behind equations). We will continue to work on this."
