Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed the ideal gas law and practice problems for it. We worked on acid-base equilibrium and worked on practice problems for these concepts. We started working on weak acid and base equilibrium as well as diprotic, triprotic and amphiprotic acids."
"We reviewed the student's homework on noble gas laws (P1*V1/T1=P2*V2/T2) and basic unit conversion. In particular, we reviewed the proper conversion of units for different measurements in the same property. The student was unfamiliar with the ladder/step method of unit conversion, which will be of great use to her as she progresses in Chemistry."
"We covered kinetics and electrochemistry. In kinetics, we went over how to find the rate order of a reaction given an experiment. We also covered differentiated vs integrated equations and what they mean as well as looking for half-life. The kinetics portion was just review from old material because she said that was the most challenging concept for her. She is now learning electrochemistry in class. We went over her notes, and I added some extra details that might help. She was having the most trouble with terms (reduced, oxidized, reducing agent, oxidizing agent, galvanic, electrolytic, etc.). She understood everything after I went over it with her. She told me that she got a 48/50 on her quiz, and she also got a 27/32 on her test."
