Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered more complex stoichiometry problems, in which you have to balance the equations, determine the moles of what is given, setup the problem (before, change, and after), and solve for what the question is asking."
"We went through anabolic and catabolic reactions, purpose and structures of enzymes, exergonic and endergonic reactions and their graphs, steps to go through glycolysis, the Krebs Cycle, fermentation, electron transport chain, chemiosmosis, and the light and dark reactions of photosynthesis. The student continues to do extremely well on post-tutoring assessments and is an excellent student."
"The student and I worked through her review notes and a practice quiz in preparation for her upcoming test on solutions. She reviewed and practiced problems involving molarity, molar mass, molality and how a salt affects the freezing/boiling points of solvents. She also reviewed the concepts of saturation, under- and supersaturation, electrolytes, strong and weak electrolytes, and how to use solubility to determine what will be a strong/weak/nonelectrolyte."
"Today, I helped the student start going through the problems in her ACS exam review book that will be covered on her exam. She did very well with equilibrium problems, though she struggled with a few of the topics that were covered at the beginning of the term. She gained confidence and started remembering topics more clearly as we reviewed them together. I gave her a brief outline of a suggested study guide for her Tuesday exam."
"Today, I helped the student with his homework assignment regarding looking at the spread of diseases, using R code. He was having some trouble with the coding, and I helped him to troubleshoot and showed him some code to help with publication-ready figures."
"Today, I helped the student with some topics related to her upcoming test on energy, work, and power. We spent most of the time on a multi-part problem involving a block pushed up a rough inclined plane by a spring before sliding back down onto the same spring. She seems very confident and has a solid understanding of the material. She did ask for help on this problem, but she quickly caught on. I have no doubt she will perform well."
