Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over concentration and solubility for chemistry, and for math we did some congruence, trigonometry, and proofs. He did well in math and he was able to figure out most of the problems with minimal input from me. He seemed to be curious about how to make the problems harder, since the quizzes and tests that he normally takes are more challenging than the homework. But if he has a good grasp on what he is doing in the homework, then he should be able to use that knowledge and transfer it to the test."
"Today, we finished up solutions and continued with learning Lewis Structures. The student seemed to understand this very well, so we moved on to ions/double bonds. We will be practicing these again next week."
"During this session, we covered solutions. We discussed how to find the percent volume of a solution as well as the percent mass. We also looked at molarity and how to find it and how to find the other quantity when given the molarity and mass or volume of a solution. We ended by discussing how to find volume or molarity in a dilution problem."
"We worked pretty much entirely on quantum numbers today. We went through what each one was, what they meant and how to spot false sets of quantum numbers. In the last 10 minutes, we covered some periodic trends."
"We worked problems consisting of limiting reagents, theoretical yield, concentration, percent yield problems, empirical formulas, naming ionic compounds, thermodynamics, and energy. We worked the practice problems for the ALEKS chemistry prep."
"We worked through a variety of Test 1 problems, including reaction kinetics, rate laws, mechanisms, reaction rate order, vapor pressure, the effect of surface area on reaction rates, the ideal gas law, Raoult's law, ideal vs. nonideal gases, equilibrium concentrations, cubic cell calculations (face-centered and body-centered), lattice enthalpy, and determination of overall enthalpy of a reaction using Hess's law."
