Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I reviewed for the Chemistry state assessment exam by completing an old practice exam together and going over any problems and topics she was unsure about."
"During this session we looked at problems from a practice chemistry state assessment. We focused on question the student had and reviewed the content of the reference table. Overall this session went well."
"Periodic Trends, Ionic Bonding, Covalent Bonding, Lattice Energy. Left the student with: homework problems over periodic trends."
"The student showed a remarkable aptitude for science. We first went over dimensional analysis and unit conversions. She showed complete understanding after about half an hour. We continued on with significant digits, as well as starting work on the periodic table."
"The student started the session with a review of periodic table trends, including the ionization energy, electron affinity, atomic radius, and electronegativity. Next, we read the textbook together and defined new concepts. Next, we discussed types of bonding such as ionic, covalent, and polar covalent. We ended the session with the drawing of a few Lewis bonding structures. Next week, we will meet at the same time and start with the electron configuration."
"The student struggled with basic equilibrium problems and concepts. He just didn't have enough practice doing these types of problems, and we went over strategies on how to do them. We will meet again tomorrow to finish it."
