Session Summaries by Organic Chemistry Tutors

Louisville, KY Organic Chemistry tutoring
For today's session we focused heavily on Diels-Alder reactions and their stereochemistry. Near the end I also introduced the differences between Sn1 and Sn2 reactions for next week's session. The student was having issues with a few things: determining how the diene and dienophile connect via the mechanism, keeping track of the substituents, and determining whether the substituents resulted facing up or down (stereochemistry). I addressed this by coming up with a method of approaching these types of problems where we numbered the core carbons and then their substituents to make sure no carbons get lost in the process. I also explained the stereochemistry issue with a "C" analogy that made sense to her. While she did struggle at first, she is making progress, especially after we came up with that step-wise method for her. I asked that she continue working on Diels-Alder problems on her own to solidify what we went over.

We mostly covered the concept of ARIO and how it helps qualify acidity in an organic molecule. I spoke to the student mainly about what ARIO is, and tried to illustrate the concepts with some examples. She seemed really intent and dedicated to learning the material, and she recalled bits and pieces of the material as I went on. She had a great attitude and showed a willingness to learn.
