Chemistry is known for being a difficult subject, so that’s why I am making a series to go in depth about core chemistry concepts. Today we will be talking about how atoms bond together by explaining two different types of bonding: ionic and covalent. Even if you’ve never heard these words before, you will still understand this video because I will walk you through it all from the very beginning. I will explain each type of bond on an atomic level, teach you how to name both ionic and covalent compounds, draw diagrams to show electron movement, and give you plenty of practice problems to work on.
I attended the Packer Collegiate Institute in Brooklyn, NY where I was able to explore my multiple different passions through engaging classes and fun clubs. I am currently on a gap year but am excited to attend Northwestern University next fall with an intended major in Environmental Chemistry.
Throughout my time in high school, I tutored many students in chemistry. As early as 10th grade, my chemistry teacher recommended me to the school’s peer tutoring program because she saw how deeply I was grasping and understanding the information being taught. I have worked with students on homework, test prep, and lab report editing.
In addition to tutoring high school chemistry, I have worked with kindergarteners and first graders on reading skills and comprehension, so I feel confident working
