Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student was preparing for a Chemistry test. To review, he had online sets of problems he needed to complete. He worked through the problems during our time, while I checked his work. The problems included the topics: conversion between pressure units, Boyle's law, Charles's law, Avogadro's law, Ideal Gas law, and the combined gas laws."
"In this session, we continued our exploration of electron and geometric shapes of various compounds. We also discussed the definition of coordination number. We ended our session with how to determine the polarity of a compound and the definition of dipole moment."
"We worked on oxidation and reduction reactions today. We discussed the concepts, and he knew how to identify the oxidizing agent and reducing agent. He was having a difficult time doing "half reaction" problems, so we did several of these problems from the book. By the end of the session he improved at generating the "half reactions". He has not reviewed this concept in class yet, so I expect after he does he will do better with the concept."
"The student worked on his geometry homework. He is learning the concepts of distance between two points on a graph and to find the middle point. After going through this, there is no problem at all for him, as long as he doesn't rush through the problems in underestimation."
"We went over the student's worksheet on mass-mass conversions for balanced reactions. He was understanding the material well."
"The student and I covered redox reactions. She needed help with balancing and figuring out oxidation numbers. Her attitude was proactive. Strategies we looked at included concept mapping. By the end, the student had developed a thorough understanding of redox."
