Description

This course will cover all the basics for alkene properties and synthesis techniques. It is intended to be one of several affordable micro 1st semester organic chemistry courses. You will learn how to execute alkene (double bond) problems with ease and confidence. What you will get from this course:

- Improved grades in your class

- Lifetime access to tutorial videos on all alkene subjects including: naming, stability, stereochemistry, and all mechanisms and synthesis techniques learned in Organic Chemistry I.

- The ability to ask your own organic chemistry questions to the instructor with personalized feedback. I am an experienced university teacher and you can search for me on rate my professor using the name: Matthew Tomney.

- Video walk-through of solved problem sessions for your own practice and review.

Who is the target audience?
  • Students enrolled in first semester organic chemistry that are struggling with or want to learn more about alkene reactions
  • Those reviewing for standardized exams including MCATs, GRE's and ACS Exams
  • This course is not ideal for: seconds semester organic students or those wishing to learn more than just alkene chemistry

Professor of Chemistry

I am a professor of chemistry and have taught at several institutions from large universities to small liberal arts colleges. I believe education can be offered through a superior venue (online and on demand) for a reasonable cost with high quality content. I seek to help students learn the subject of chemistry while making it as stress free and cost effective as possible. I am looking to create, update and maintain a large library of chemistry courses here on Udemy that are of excellent quality.
