Session Summaries by Organic Chemistry Tutors

San Marcos, TX Organic Chemistry tutoring
We started the session going over matrices and linear equation systems. The student practiced doing difficult homework problems using elementary row operations to determine inverse matrices. We practiced solving linear systems using Gauss-Jordan elimination and back substitution. We went over the basics of organic chemistry nomenclature and structure drawings. We briefly discussed/ identified hydrocarbon functional groups, and identification of secondary and tertiary carbons. I will do a homework check with student via email or in the following meeting. I recommend practicing as much as necessary to reach good comfort level.

We finished going through problems from the chapters on magnetics and went through several of the multiple choice practice questions for the chapters on electrostatics, and circuits. We reviewed all of the right hand rules for positive charge or current in a magnetic field. He also had several of his old tests and quizzes from the chapters that the final will cover and we went through the problems that he got wrong. Lastly, we went through the equation sheet and defined each variable with the SI units for them. He was able to remember most of the variables and units on the equation sheet and was quick to remember most of the concepts covered in the problems we reviewed.

In our first session, the student worked through sample problems from class with guidance. It is immediately apparent that she is a bright girl; she's at the stage in this course where good study habits are being formed and small problem solving patterns are being recognized. We talked about setting up dimensional analysis problems and how to make the most out of scratch-work. For example, I encouraged her to always include complete units in DA and scratch-work for three reasons: to make sure the answer comes out in the correct unit (a question asking for mass should give an answer in grams, not in joules), as a guide toward the correct answer (if you see a unit conversion from volume to mass, consider using density to get there), and finally as a reasonability check when the whole problem seems solved (don't want to see negative mass or negative kelvins). We talked about the logic of each unit conversion, and that made the material sink in. A step-wise process is going to work for her. I suggested ways to pace the problem solving so that she can work quickly but not rush and blunder through problems. Most importantly, we started to include checkpoints in the work, and I encouraged her to find her own checkpoints. Consistently asking "does this make sense?" "what does this mean, physically or chemically?" and "what does this calculation represent?" and always looking back to the question itself to make sure we're on track. As we went through the worksheet, her work became more consistent and faster. At a point, when she became confident, she started to rush, and that's when I made sure she was paying attention to the question and making checkpoints. She started to understand the difference between working quickly and rushing.

Today focused primarily on the organic chemistry section of the AP chemistry exam. We went through a number of examples that covered differentiating between different organic compounds, naming organic compounds, stability of compounds, strength and length of bonds and the properties of carbonyls.

We worked on the student's study guide for her upcoming test on Tuesday. She seems pretty comfortable with the information. We also watched the final video for the chapter. She has one more page to do on her second homework packet.
