Session Summaries by Organic Chemistry Tutors

Bellevue, WA Organic Chemistry tutoring
Today we worked on physics and a little bit of algebra. For physics, the student is getting ready for a test on circular motion and gravitational force. She had a study guide that her teacher handed out this week and we worked on that together. She does a really good job with all of the concepts but gets a little lost when she has to put it in the calculator or when she has to convert units. When she slows down she does it correctly. She really didn't have any issues with the study guide and completed it rather easily. For math, she is working on systems of equations and interpreting word problems to set up a system of equations. She does well with setting up the equations. We went over the substitution method and once we walked through that once, it was very easy for her. She did an excellent job today.

Although we covered physics, we also covered some pre-calculus material as well. For physics, we covered circuits and specifically how to determine the total amount of resistance in a circuit in parallel and in series. In addition, we also covered how the current and voltage changes across each resistor in both scenarios (series and parallel). For pre-calc, we covered different kinds of series, geometric series and regular series, as well as infinite series and discrete series. We also discussed the sums of each kind of series, as well as the various means of the series. Although the student did not have any problems with either subject, I feel that she might need more practice with series in pre-calc.

The student had a practice multiple choice exam yesterday and, though she doesn't know the official results, she said that she thinks she did poorly. She didn't remember how to do a lot of the questions, and specifically recalled needing help with oxidation states, periodic trends, ph, molarity, and electrochemistry. She has done a good job remembering the thermodynamic importance of G,H,&S, so we did several sample problems relating G and E from spontaneous and nonspontaneous redox reactions. We also worked on sample problems at the end of chapter 18 on galvanic cells, calculating cell potential given half reactions, and applying the Nernst equation to cells of varying concentrations (non-standard concentrations). Next week we will try to review periodic trends since we focused on reviewing oxidation states today.

At today's session, the student and I spent some time discussing his current situation in Chemistry. His parents were also present and showed me previous assignments and notes that the student's teacher has covered in the course so far. We then discussed goals that the student and his parents have for him, as a result of the tutoring. He and I briefly discussed properties of metals and alloys, including the Electron Sea model. We then started reviewing his previous notes, for his upcoming final exam. We discussed topics in energetics, such as potential and kinetic energy, activation energy, enthalpy, catalysts, endothermic and exothermic reactions, and reviewed energy diagrams. We then talked about atoms, compounds, and molecules. The student is very bright, and recalled a lot of the material easily, despite it being several months since he learned it. He had a very positive attitude during the session. He did not appear to be struggling with anything in particular today. I reinforced to him the idea of doing practice problems every time he learns something new in Chemistry, because that subject is only mastered by doing practice problems, not just simply reading the book.

The student and I touched base to figure out where help was needed. We then proceeded to tackle some homework problems. The professor had left out a lot of details in his solutions, as well as during his lectures, and the student had trouble following the professor's logic. Once some of the gaps in logic were filled in, the student started getting a hang of the procedure. I also showed the student a couple of tricks that can help when stuck on a problem, or when getting an answer that doesn't seem correct. The student and I covered the topics of conservation of momentum, and Bernoulli's equation. As a twist to the problems, the professor added some geometry that needs to be solved for. Using these concepts, we solved for the resultant forces on various control volumes. In the Next appointment we will go over some additional practice problems/tests, as well as continue to work on an equation sheet in preparation for the next exam.

For this session we discussed nucleophilic aromatic substitution, and began to look over some of the addition reactions in the back of chapter 17.
