Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During this session we reviewed concepts of equilibrium, kinetic a and did various questions on balancing equations. The student seemed more confident and overall this session went well."
"Covalent Bonding, Ionic Bonding, Enthalpy of Formation, Electronegativity, Polar bonding. Left with: Work on Hess' Law and polar bonding."
"We began final preparations for chemistry finals. We reviewed fundamentals of bonding, periodic table trends, solutions, and other topics. We worked on part one multiple choice practice questions."
"During this session the student and I worked through practice problems regarding gas laws; specifically we focused on how to apply varying conditions consistently to the combined gas law. She seemed to grasp this quickly, and mainly struggled with the algebra when more than 2 variables were changing. We managed to break these problems down into more manageable steps, and she gained more confidence. I encouraged her to complete more of the unassigned problems before next session in order to reinforce the skills we reviewed on her own."
"We worked on acid/base problems. We started by discussing the theory in terms of Kw and deriving the equations relevant to tonight's discussion. We then worked out a few of his questions, and then I gave a few example problems to test his knowledge."
"This lesson was all about acid/base basics. We went over pH and pOH and how to calculate them and spent a lot of time working on identifying acids, bases, conjugate acids and conjugate bases. I also showed him all of the strong acids and bases and gave him the definitions of Arrhenius and (No Suggestions) acids/bases."
