About me

Hi there. My name is Hannah and I'm currently studying chemistry at Bristol uni. I find chemistry super interesting (although sometimes labs can get a bit tedious!) and I just love learning out about why things react, how things are made, and my favourite part of chemistry is all about atoms and the structure of molecules. As part of my course I've also studied some physics and maths which I find interesting as well. My favourite bit of physics at uni is special relativity (Einstein came up with the idea that if things so really really fast time and distances can change) but at school I always enjoyed looking at particle physics and often concepts that overlapped between physics and chemistry.  I studied hard for both my A-levels and GCSEs and got good grades as a result. Exams are hard – they’re meant to be, but I found if I found the right way to learn and revise for me then I could get through them. For example, I found diagrams really helpful and could picture them in my head in exams much better than words. 


I also play ultimate frisbee and a little bit of tennis and netball and uni and I find sport a great way to have a break from work and find it often helps me concentrate better. You can’t study all the time you’ve got to leave room for time to relax too!

About my sessions

I'm reasonably flexible with my time and am happy to arrange sessions to suit your timetable and teaching style. If you give me specific topics you would like to go over I can plan for that or if you have any particular problems/questions you find hard we can work through them together in the session. We can work together to find the best teaching/learning style for you. Depending on what suits you I can set you questions to go through after the sessions in order for me to see how you’re getting on and if the sessions are working for you and these can be weekly or monthly ect. Initially we can come up with a plan together to reach your maximum potential and achieve your goals designed to suit your needs as everyone suits a different teaching style better. 


An example structure of a session may go as follows. Initially you will be given the chance to raise any queries or give me specific questions you would like help with. Then we would go through that sessions topic where I would explain the concepts and try to clear up any difficulties. We could then work through some questions together and then I would give you 1 or 2 questions to work through before the next session. I may also provide some extra resources I’ve found useful such as links to videos or websites.

Draw the mechanism for the reaction of an acid chloride with an alcohol to form an ester

First thing to remember is that when drawing curly arrows, the arrows start where the electrons start and finish where the electrons end up. For this reaction the lone pair of electrons on the oxygen from the alcohol attacks the carbon of the carbonyl group and an electron pair from the C=O bond gets pushed up onto the oxygen. This format an intermediate. The alcohol group is now positive so looses an H+, the chlorine is kicked out becoming Cl_ and the double bond (C=O) reforms.
