Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed for her chem final. We went over limiting reagents and percent yield, then moved on to solubility and acid base reactions and titration calculations."
"We reviewed for the student's final. We focused on unit conversion, percent abundance, and density problems."
"The student and I finished studying for her final, reviewing definitions, trends in the periodic table, electron configuration, and dimensional analysis of moles and molecules."
"We covered unit conversions to clear up the lingering confusion of the metric system, which was a success, using a chart and explaining base unit and the meaning of the prefixes. We covered electron configuration, including the noble gas abbreviations. Use of a chart was also helpful."
"We did a review for her upcoming test. He's got most of the topics down, but he needs some work with the common reactions that metal or non-metals undergo. These are a little tough, because he needs to just memorize a few things. He is familiar with the general concepts of periodicity."
"We did exam review. Types of matter. Element vs. compound vs. mixture (homogeneous vs. heterogeneous) vs. pure compound. Chemical change vs. physical change. We discussed what type of chemicals can undergo decomposition. We went over several practice exams."
