organic 1 videos

I am currently making new videos to line up with the new curriculum.  Where noted, videos are NEW and are optimized for the Bruice text and the quiz questions you’ll encounter.  In other cases, my older videos (named by Module number) have been edited to reflect the information you’re required to know, and are offered at a reduced price.  They supplement the Bruice text and are highly recommended as a study aid.  New videos will be added as they are completed.

Week 1, Chapter 1:  My Module 1 Video Series to review everything you forgot from Gen Chem – $20.  Also from your text, learn electron configurations and sections 1.10* and 1.14.

Week 2, Chapter 2:  NEW Video Series “Acids and Bases” Created Jan. 2016 – $25.

Week 3, Chapter 3:  My Module 2 Video Series – $20.  Also watch Video 2 (Nomenclature of Alcohols) from this series and Video 1 (Nomenclature of Amines) from this series.  And from your text, pay attention to common names, intermolecular forces, boiling points and solubility!

Week 4, Chapter 4:  NEW Chapter 4 Video Series – $25.  Make sure you prepare with lots of practice problems from your text!

Week 5, Chapter 5:  This is a tricky week.  I suggest watching videos 1 and 3 from this series (both are free).  Also pay close attention to the following sections in your text: 5.1, 5.3, 5.9.  You can ignore the rest of the chapter.  :)

Week 6, Chapter 6:  My Module 4 Video Series – $20.  NOTE that my video series does not teach carbocation rearrangements.  You MUST learn hydride shifts and methyl shifts!  Here‘s a good resource that explains them in the proper context.

Week 7, Midterm:  Contact me for help!  Also see my resources tab for a practice midterm and other tools.

Week 8, Chapter 7:  NEW Chapter 7 Video Series – $20.  Updated with Dienes and Diels Alder reactions May 2017.

Week 9, Chapter 8:  Module 7 Video Series – $25.
This series is SUPER helpful for clearing up this chapter.  My resources also fill in the gaps. Highly recommended.  However my videos do not discuss carbocation rearrangements (hydride shifts and methyl shifts).

Week 10, Chapter 9:  NEW Bruice Chapter 9 Series – $25.  A complete video series for Chapter 9 (Reactions of Alcohols, Ethers, and Epoxides) with special emphasis on solving problems for quizzes and final exam.

Week 11, Chapter 11:  Bruice Chapter 11 Video Series ($20) will help immensely.  However these lectures DO NOT follow the book.  They teach the same reactions in a different order.

Week 12, Chapter 12:  My Module 10 Video Series – $20.  Watch sections 1, 2, 3, and 6. (Note: videos 10-4 and 10-5 are an intro to reactions of alpha carbons and Aldol Additions – Ch.13.)

Week 13, Chapter 13:  As a supplement to the chapter, I suggest watching my FREE YouTube videos:
Enols and Enolates
6-Part Series on Aldol Reactions.  These videos do not cover conjugate additions (which are actually covered in the last two sections of chapter 12) or Claisen Condensations.

Week 14, Chapter 14: NEW Chapter 14 Video Series – $20. Recently updated with new material to cover the types of questions you’ll see in the new curriculum.

Week 15, Final Exam:  I have resources that can help you prepare and do well.  Contact me!
