Session Summaries by Organic Chemistry Tutors

Peoria, AZ Organic Chemistry tutoring
Today we reviewed the student's most recent test. We went over electrophilic substitution, addition reactions, atomic orbitals, and nomenclature. The student understood the material better after the session.

For this session, we discussed how to determine whether a reaction undergoes unimolecular/bimolecular substitution/ elimination. I changed my approach with this material. In the past, I've emphasized on how to choose the right answer, but this instance I chose to frame the material in such a way that makes it more about eliminating possibilities. Combined with a chart I drew for the student during the session, she now has a much better understanding of how different reaction conditions can change the outcome. Now it is a matter of practicing in order to make that chart second nature so that she will not have to depend on it. We also went over the mechanisms for each type of reaction in hopes that it will reinforce the material and make it easier for her to remember.

Since the student has a test later today, we mainly reviewed all the material that we covered before but more extensively and in more detail. I think her main struggle still is just differentiating between Sn2/Sn1/E2/E1, so we went over how to go about tackling problems very systematically and logically. I tried to break it down into multiple steps in order to figure out what type of reaction will take place. We went over elimination reactions and how the reactivity of those depend on the # of hydrogens and the stability of the product. We talked about how in substitution reactions, how well the nucleophile can find the partially positive carbon determines whether or not it will be Sn2 or Sn1. I included strategies and tips on how to remember what makes a base (O, C w/ a negative charge) and what makes a poor nucleophile (O's without a negative charge: water, alcohols, hydrogen peroxide, and carboxylic acids).

During this session, the student and I covered alkene chemistry and elimination reactions, which included going through halogenation, syn-dihydroxylation, halohydrins, and catalytic hydrogenation mechanisms. The student seemed to struggle the most with elimination reactions and differentiating E1 mechanisms from E2 mechanisms. In addition the student was very enthusiastic to learn and to clarify some questions she had. At the end of the session, I gave her extra problems that would reinforce what she had learned during our session.

The student and I went over several questions from her homework that involved predicting the product(s) of multistep synthetic sequences. She had taken her second exam last week and was satisfied with the results. We also went over several post-lab questions concerning SN1, E1, and E2 reactions.

Today the student and I covered E1 vs Sn1, E2 vs E1, distinguishing the reactions based on reaction conditions, E2 on 3d structures, Fischer projections and Newman projections, E2 on a cyclohexane and all the possible trick questions, all types of additions to double bonds, the 3 types of double bond hydration.
