Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We discussed the Bohr model of atom. Went in depth on the energy of photon( Hydrogen atom). We went over about 4 formulas to help solve for wavelength, energy, and frequency. She felt better about her homework, and this made me glad. The student was very focused and ready to learn."
"We discussed the conservation of energy and work energy theorem, as well Newton's laws and dynamics. She had a good handle on most of the material, he just need some help deciding which formulas to use. I suggested that he break the problems into steps and list all his givens before plugging numbers into equations."
"We discussed the difference between combination, decomposition, and single and double replacement reactions. We also started to cover redox and spent time discussing the meaning of the mole and stoichiometry."
"We discussed the diffusion of gases and problems pertaining to non-ideal gas behavior. These parts are very conceptual and less formula based. This is where the student was struggling. But through discussions, the concepts started becoming clear to the student, and he started applying those."
"We discussed the digestive system, pathway, and transit time. Discussed chemical digestion and mechanical digestion. Discussed digestive enzymes briefly, and activation of zymogens. Discussed large intestine and water absorption, small intestine and nutrient absorption, villi, stomach and g-cells, and parietal cells. Factors that regulate digestion and transit time. Accessory digestive organs."
"We discussed the four main macromolecules, their structure, function, and how they are made. We also discussed polar and nonpolar molecules and interactions, with special attention on surfactants and emulsifiers like soap, which form micelles."
