We worked through a practice test that covered E1, E2, SN1, and SN2. We also looked at a number of reactions including osmylation, ozonolysis, borane addition and bromine addition. We discussed the mechanism and the stereochemical consequences of the mechanisms.

The student and I covered a broad range of organic chemistry topics in our first meeting. We talked about nucleophilic substitutions (SN2 and SN1), the E2 reaction, acidity and basicity, nomenclature and determining the base chain, carbocation stability, Markovnikov's Rule, hydride shifts, alkyl shifts, stereochemistry, ethers, and even a little bit about synthesis. I believe that she has an overall good understanding of the concepts and that her understanding will surely improve over time. Overall, I believe she will do well. One thing that will be key to her success in this course is to very carefully watch her professor's words and to make sure she gets clarity on anything that isn't clear. While reviewing concepts with her, I made several drawings so that she will get a better visual idea of how certain things work. Some of these, I only drew and showed to her, but there were drawings I felt that she should keep because they gave her a better understanding than how her professor explained the concepts.

We covered SN1 and SN2 reactions. The student wanted help understanding the difference between each. We made a chart noting how to determine if a reaction is SN1 or SN2. Specifically, we talked about differences in rate laws, "big barrier" (i.e. carbocation formation vs. steric hindrance), types of solvents, alkyl halide structure, and stereochemistry. Mostly the student was struggling with conceptual issues. So I tried to begin with an overview of what the difference between nucleophiles and electrophiles was. We then talked about the various types of alkyl halides, primary, secondary, or tertiary with examples of each. We went through the chart to explain how each criteria affected whether a reaction was SN1 and SN2. We also went over study skills and methods she has used in the past to succeed in or go. I recommended her trying to do practice old exams if they're available under a timed and controlled setting.

We reviewed for her final exam she will be taking tomorrow. We went over thermodynamic problems, ph problems and bonding. We went over her practice test to make sure we answered her specific question and understood them. She will continue to study for her exam. She had a great attitude.

The student and I reviewed some topics in her organic chemistry classes such as alkene reactions. We went over how alkenes are halogenated, dehydrated, and are created via hydration. We also did some practice problems from her supplementary textbook regarding formal charge and resonance.
