About me

I am a student studying at The University of Leeds. I am currently on track to receive a 1st in medicinal chemistry with the option of doing a integrated masters. I studied maths, biology and chemistry at a level and received an A in all three subjects. I have experience of tutoring within schools where I have taught lessons and gone through past exam questions for a level students for which I thoroughly enjoyed.

About my sessions

Each of my sessions will consist of one or two topics, starting with the basics to ensure good background knowledge and ending on a small set of exam questions to ensure the student has gained a good application of the information. I will then set small set of questions to complete over the week which I will begin the next session looking over and discussing answers and any problems. Despite this all of my sessions will be individually tailored to the student and if this format of lessons needs adapting then I will find the best way to suit any learning needs.

Molly had an instant rapport with my 15 year old daughter. The lesson was well prepared and flowed smoothly. Molly is confident, engaging and fun to learn with. A very promising start to our first experience of any form of tutoring.

Questions Molly has answered

Explain why bromine reacts more readily with phenol than benzene

Benzenes bonding consists of sideways overlap of PI bonds between carbons in the ring. due to the extensive overlapping and the PI bond not being held between two atoms the electrons are said to be delocalised and the ring is an area of low electron density. The lone pair form the O atom attached is delocalised into the ring therefore increasing the electron density of the ring, this means a dipole in the electrophile is more easily induced and therefore is more attracted to the ring. For the reaction with benzene a halogen carrier is needed (feBr3) to create Br+ to create a strong enough electrophile to react with the lower electron rich ring structure.Benzenes bonding consists of sideways overlap of PI bonds between carbons in the ring. due to the extensive overlapping and the PI bond not being held between two atoms the electrons are said to be delocalised and the ring is an area of low electron density.
