Free Organic Chemistry Classes – Easter 2023

Update: Now that these classes have taken place, you can watch the class recordings below. If you want to download the free organic revision workbook, click here.

My A Level chemistry online masterclasses have been going great since February – however, since the live classes only take small numbers of students I am completely booked up for Year 12 and almost booked up for Year 13. (Recordings access still available – see here).

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, that is what the two classes will be aimed at – 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.

Tuesday 11th April, 3pm: Boost your organic chemistry revision

In this class we’ll look at different approaches to revising organic chemistry, especially retrieval practice. We’ll look at what works and what to avoid, and you’ll get a free downloadable booklet to try out some of the ideas.

Wednesday 12th April, 3pm: Organic chemistry – essential exam technique

In this class we’ll look at the importance of command words and key terminology in organic chemistry questions. We’ll look at strategies for dealing with longer questions about synthesis, analysis and reaction pathways and how to deal with questions about more complex molecules or unfamiliar mechanisms.
