Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on her periodic table lab, which utilized periodic trends. We then discussed ionization energy, electronegativity, metals, nonmetals and other trends in the periodic table."
"We reviewed photosynthesis and respiration and the implications of these processes on the carbon cycle. We also looked at Osmosis and Diffusion and exergonic vs endergonic reactions."
"We discussed concepts in system, surroundings, internal energy, work, and enthalpy and enthalpy of a reaction."
"We covered the topics of DNA replication using lecture slides from the student's class. In order to review, I will be sending him videos and quizzes on these topics. Another session is scheduled for Saturday to talk about DNA transcription."
"We covered details of electron configurations and behavioral trends of elements. Went over quantum numbers especially visualizing the way they look compared to their short notations. He didn't do as well on these topics in an exam, so he wanted clarification, and thought diagrams were most useful for understanding the topics. Fun session!"
"We finished reviewing for her test tomorrow, going over the concepts of power dissipation and capacitance. We did problems with both, and also spent some time clarifying all the quantities we've introduced and the physical differences between them (e.g. , current vs. voltage, power vs. energy vs charge, etc.)."
