Free Easter Online Class: Revising Organic Chemistry

This was a really popular online class last year, so I’m running it again over the Easter holidays – once again completely free to A Level students. The class will run at 11.15 am on Tuesday 2nd April (during Easter holidays) and there will be the opportunity to access a class recording if you can’t make it.

Organic chemistry can seem pretty overwhelming when you finally reach the end of the A Level course – there are so many different reaction conditions, functional groups, equations, mechanisms, practical techniques, it can be difficult to know where to start. So, this will be the main focus of the class – how to get ahead and be more effective with your organic revision techniques, and how to improve your exam technique for the more challenging questions.

This time it will be a single 90 minute class, with a focus on the following organic chemistry essentials:

  • Approaches to A Level organic chemistry revision – effective strategies and retrieval practice
  • Ideas you might not have thought of for organic chemistry revision (or had been avoiding…)
  • Exam technique: command words and key terminology in organic chemistry exam questions
  • Strategies for dealing with longer questions about synthesis, analysis and reaction pathways
  • How to deal with more complex molecules or unfamiliar mechanisms

Spaces will be limited so that students have a chance to ask questions during the class. If you can’t make the live class, you can use the same booking link to request access to the recorded class (anyone who signs up, including teachers and tutors, will be able to access the recording).

Students who sign up for the free class will also receive a free copy of my organic chemistry revision booklet to help get them started.
