The Chemistry Department is offering free Organic Chemistry tutoring for this Summer!!!
Our duty is to provide quality tutoring to our fellow anteaters at no extra cost by assigning four knowledgeable and committed individuals for each of the two organic chemistry courses held during summer: OChem 51A lecture (SSI) and OChem 51B lecture (SSII). Each tutor is there to help you, the student, reach a better understanding of organic chemistry.
Weekly worksheets, review times, review packets & answers, and class tutors can all be found under the Chem 51A SSI tab.
Office hours will begin during the second week of instruction (July 1st) in RH 523. Check the Office Hours page to see when tutors are available.
Feel free to email us if you have any questions or concerns at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hello OChem Students!
As the 2012-2013 academic year is coming to a close, we are in the process of looking for new tutors. If you are interested in applying, check and see if you can fulfill these requirements:
-Receive at least a B+ in each of the Chem 51ABC courses
-Tutor for a minimum of 3 quarters of the academic year (following the Chem 51 series)
-Attend the lectures of the Chem 51 series professor they are tutoring for
-Hold 2 office hours per week (excluding Week 1)
-Hold a 2 hour review session before each exam
-Put in effort learning and keeping up to date with lecture material
-Make time to meet with the professor and/or TAs to check up review packets and worksheets
-Hold review and topical workshops at the coordinators’ request
-Attend weekly meetings (Wednesdays at 6pm) with all the tutors, coordinators, and Dr. Link
-Communicate with others via email in a timely manner
-Keep the coordinators and co-tutors well-informed (this means constantly CC-ing and “Reply All”-ing in emails)
If you feel that you can fulfill all of the above requirements, please click here and fill out the application asap. Please keep in mind that your admission to this program will be contingent on your promise to uphold the above requirements, your grades in each of the Chem 51 courses, and your application and interview. Our previous tutors have found this program to be a beneficial learning experience to both their students and themselves as well. Tutors also receive 2 graded science units per quarter (for only four quarters max) under the department of chemistry. That being said, we definitely encourage you to apply to become an Organic Chemistry Department Tutor. Best of Luck!

Hello Chem 51C Students!
As your exams approach, your OChem Department Tutors have prepared workshops to help you review your Chem 51B and Chem 51C reagents. The material they will cover will be based off of the end of chapter reactions lists in the textbook. These workshops are meant to be general reagent/reaction reviews. Please consider attending to refresh on your 51B reagents and any current reactions that you might feel shaky on. No mechanisms will be covered! There is a possibility that the tutors will cover reactions that your lecture section does not or does not require you to know. It is your responsibility to filter our that information; for extra help doing so, please refer to your lecture professor, TAs, and the tutors assigned to your lecture section. If you would like to attend the review workshops, please sign up here!
Best of Luck!

Office Hours will be held in RH 523! Office Hours schedule will be posted on the door!
Hello OChem Students!
In the past two years, this program has improved tremendously due to the efficacy of our tutors and staff, but even so, there is always room for improvement, and that’s where the students come in. We are always open to suggestions and evaluations so if you have any, please send them to Samantha Wong (email@example.com) or Lawrence Liu (firstname.lastname@example.org). If a tutor does not show up for his or her office hour, please let us know to preserve the integrity of this program and to avoid the recurrence of this issue (check the Office Hours page first and then check the Updates section of that page!!). Also, please fill out the review session evaluations that will be attached to the end of review packets at the review sessions that our tutors will be holding; we will use your evaluations to improve the quality of each tutor’s tutoring ability. Thanks and best of luck in OChem and your other classes!
Just a friendly reminder, during the week of your tutors’ midterm/final review session, there will be no Ochem worksheet for that week! Please keep checking the website for future updates and recently uploaded documents! Thank you.
