Session Summaries by Science Tutors

Connecticut, CT Science tutoring
Starting with the definition of grams, moles, and atoms, we moved into conversions between units and mass percents. We briefly went over covalent and ionic bonds, what polarity is, polar vs. non polar molecules, and axes of symmetry. We made big strides in both stoichiometry and predicting the products of reactions. I think she learned quite a bit, especially about stoichiometry and limiting reactants. Unfortunately her test is tomorrow, but I think she understands the information, but hasn't physically done the problem types enough times to feel as comfortable as I would like. Overall, she's a really smart person, and I think made strides in trying to convince her that she's more than capable of being successful in math and sciences.

In today's session we covered Quantum Theory including the different quantum numbers and electron configuration. We not only looked over figures in the book, but completed an entire worksheet assigned from class. The student took a test on periodic trends that we worked previously on last session and scored a 77%. It is hard to tell improvement yet because I only worked with him for the first time the day before that test. We set goals to utilize the textbook more even when not assigned specific reading.

As this was our first session, the student described what her expectations are and what she needs help with. She had an exam last week, so we reviewed the topics that she wasn't comfortable with from that exam. We covered ionic and covalent bonding, polar and nonpolar molecules, valence electrons, and practiced drawing Lewis dot structures. She now seems to be more comfortable with some of the basic concepts, which will help her throughout the rest of chemistry.

The student has an exam the Monday following Thanksgiving, so we spent the session reviewing the practice test her professor posted online. The topics covered in the practice test were equilibrium and acids/bases. She was doing much better with the acid/base material we covered last week, so we spent some time reviewing the equilibrium material she'd learned prior to the initiation of tutoring. We specifically focused on the material related to calculating reaction quotients and equilibrium constants and the use of LeChatelier's principle. Overall, it seems that the student is making good improvement. We went over some basic test-taking tips, and I encouraged her to review her work at the end of the exam to account for any simple math errors (which is where she lost some points before). Our next session will be 12/5 at 4:15 PM, when we'll review material from next week's lecture and begin preparing for the final exam.

The student worked on homework as well as test corrections. The test corrections involved problems of dimensional analysis, converting from one unit to another, as well as percent error problems. Her homework covered common ions, chemical formulas and nomenclature, writing a chemical formula given the name of a compound and then also writing the name of a compound given the formula.
