Session Summaries by Organic Chemistry Tutors

Memphis, TN Organic Chemistry tutoring
This session focused solely on covering the differences between Sn1 and Sn2 reactions along with working through some examples of each. The two main concepts the student struggled with were determining nucleophilic strength and degree of the central carbon (i.e. whether it's primary, secondary, or tertiary). Her understanding of the material improved as the session progressed. While I did not ask her to do more practice problems, I did highly encourage her to familiarizing herself with a table we created that determines Sn1 and Sn2 favorability along with memorizing what a primary, secondary, and tertiary carbon looks like.

The student and I went over a lot of conceptual stuff today, focusing on kinetics, thermodynamics, and their relationship with a reaction coordinate diagram. She is making a lot of progress and understanding the concepts behind the material, and it's clear she doesn't want to just memorize everything but understand it. Looking forward to applying these concepts with her next session.
