Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over lab quiz involving lab safety, did problems involving reaction coordinate diagrams, and went over E/Z nomenclature of alkenes."
"The student and I reviewed carboxylic acid reactions and continued reviewing amine and amide reaction. We went through his reaction flashcards as well as completed more practice problems."
"We started to review for the final which will cover stereochemistry, naming, hybridization, resonance, NMR, spectroscopy, line reactions, and synthesis."
"We went over electronegativity, acids and bases and common functional groups. We clarified these concepts in-depth and did a few sample questions from previous exams."
"The student and I met one last time before his exam and reviewed some final questions. We also developed a list of all the relevant alcohol reactions he is likely to see on his exam."
"We reviewed a test for the student's final. We covered carbohydrates, lipids, protein, transcription, translation and chirality. She seems like she understood the topics pretty well."
"We are getting ready for the final! We went back and went over all of the problems from the first exam to review for the test."
"We continued to prepare for the student's final examination. We went over Grignard reagents along with other similar reagents in great detail. In addition we went over carbenes and the reactions they do."
"This was our last session before her final. We went over the third exam and organized types of reactions, specifically addition."
"In today's session, the student and I worked on pKas of organic compounds, Newman projections, Fisher projections, and drawing chair conformations of stereoisomers. The student determined R and S configurations from structures and converted structures to Fisher projections. The student also worked through a synthesis problem involving Hydrogenation and ozonolysis. The student drew enantiomeric pairs and determined if a compounds were a meso form. Finally, the student converted a structure to the lowest energy Newman conformation diagram."
"We reviewed the syllabus. Reviewed Sn1, Sn2, E1 and E2 reactions. Student was to study existing review sheet and notes taken during session."
"Covered mass spectrometry and infrared spectrometry. The student appears to be on top of things and is very organized. Went over homework problems assigned by professor."
