What to look out for in UMD CHEM 131

    • Past Exam Keys

    Tutor with me to gain access to my extensive CHEM 131 exam keys. Most professors do not share enough old exams and students lack relevant practice problems.

      Exam Practice

    ~50% of UMD chemistry professors share a portion of their old exams and keys for students to practice (but not their complete exam set). Only 1 professor shares their complete exam set. Tutor with me 1-on-1 to find out who that is!

      Course Structure

    90% of CHEM 131 classes have 3 exams and a final. ~50% assign graded homeworks, which never exceeds 25% of your overall grade (except during Covid).

      Exam 1 Confusion

    The most confusing topic in Exam 1 in CHEM 131 is quantum mechanics and wavelengths. This is due to greek symbols, weird units, and multiple new equations.

    Avoid Distractions

    Silence your phone, videos and tell family to stop bugging you to create a focused environment.

    Study the RIGHT Material

    There are no common exams or finals at UMD. This means you should prioritize studying with classmates who are taking the SAME professor.

    Why Tutor With Me for CHEM 131?

    • Excel on What's "Actually" Tested - ~75% of UMD professors recycle old exam questions. Some professors repeat entire exams verbatim, some repeat only 1 or 2 questions per test. Yet, having seen them, students still don’t know how to begin due to confusing wording. Tutor 1-on-1 with me and I’ll help you translate Chemistry into English so you can answer quickly and correctly.

      Learn The Source of Exam Questions - ~75% of CHEM 131 UMD professors create their own exam questions. ~25% of professors pull from outside sources (such as textbooks) that students are not aware of. As part of 1-on-1 tutoring, I’ll prioritize your access to resources, so you know which questions to study and most likely tested in class.

      Tech Savvy Tutor - I know the ins and outs of online meeting software, like Zoom, Webex and Join.me. I'll easily fix your tech issues as well to ensure our session runs smoothly.

      Exam Technology Tricks - Learn to maximize the limited time provided during online exams. I'll teach you how to optimize linear or non-linear exams, and think calmly during the stressful hour.
