Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered Alkene hydration and saturation reactions and their mechanisms. We went over examples of carbocation rearrangement, etc. He solved homework questions successfully."
"On Saturday, I helped the student to understand how to write and balance chemical equations from word problems. This included identifying the type of reaction as well."
"We reviewed molecular and electron domain geometry, dipole moments, and periodic trends. I loaned the student some additional exam preparation material for her upcoming test."
"Today the student and I reviewed for his Chemistry quiz tomorrow. Our discussion included but was certainly not limited to equilibrium constants, calculating Kc/Keq/Q, determining conjugate acids and bases, and acidity based on electronegativities from the periodic table. As always, I look forward to working with him again soon!"
"Today the student and I talked about conservation of momentum and energy in elastic and inelastic collisions and explosions, as well as computing the center of mass of discrete and continuous distributions."
"Today the student and I went over all kinds of energy. We discussed types of energy and their relationship to external work. We got through all of the calculations for a lab they had done last week and then reviewed his homework. If anything, the student has a tendency to overthink problems, so I think once he starts seeing the standard path to the solution, he's set."
