Session Summaries by Science Tutors

Riverside, CA Science tutoring
We discussed valence electrons, acids/bases, orbital hybridization, resonance, nomenclature, functional groups, and how to calculate the charge of an atom. I recommended that she make flash cards for or repetitively write out the functional groups to memorize them. I also asked her to go through the rest of the exam and come back with questions for when we meet again.

Since the last tutoring session, the student had gotten her last test back, so we went over the problems she had gotten wrong / didn't understand. She seemed to understand them after we worked through the problems. We also talked about elimination reactions, and worked through a detailed explanation of dehydration reactions to form alkenes. We talked briefly about elements of unsaturation as well.

The reading I assigned the student went very well. He has no problems with reading comprehension that I can tell. He does seem to have a slight issue with test anxiety. I have assigned him 32 pages of reading as well as written questions from the book. This will show me if he learns better by reading or writing. So far he has responded extremely well to one-on-one tutoring. We are averaging one chapter per session.
