Niki covered atomic structure and some of the basic math for chemical combinations. We are trying to work out a regular weekly schedule.
Here is Amira's lesson summary:
We went over the very basics of chemistry, including the atomic structure, matter, mass, volume, the periodic table and the history of elemental nomenclature (naming and classification). Amira knows her stuff! We will need to work on application of these basic concepts to more complex problems. Homework: Find one story in history about a chemist, element or experiment and tell me what you learned. It must include one of the things we learned today.
She is a business professional and does an amazing job at delivering an encouraging learning experience, for my son. 1/8/2014: Tonight was my son's final lesson with Carole before his SSAT, which will be in two days. We feel so fortunate that we had Carole and my son is feeling a lot more confident in his ability to perform well in the exam. couldn't ask for a better tutor!! She genuinely cares about her students and is truly committed and encouraging!!
