how can a poor student understand mechanism of organic chemistry . how can a helpful teacher help them ?
Here's a couple websites that come in handy.

I guess to help understand, it's important to remember that a good bit of Organic Chemistry is really just an in depth look at organic compounds formed from the elements table. Essentially, you're just studying the make up of a compound, and classifying it by it's properties. Think of it all as one big experiment, and wear safety glasses.
nimesh.singh, organic chemical reactions are similar to chemical reactions for inorganic compounds. It is all about the reactivity of the electron. Organic chemicals behave the same way. The biggest difference between organic and inorganic compounds is that organic molecules are generally larger than inorganic molecules so the chemical reactions take place at the site or group of highly reactive electrons. For example this what happens when you mix Sodium Hydroxide with Hydrochloric Acid; an inorganic salt Sodium Chloride is formed. The same reaction occurs when an organic acid such as Benzoic Acid and an inorganic base such as Sodium Hydroxide are mixed. You will get the organic salt Sodium Benzoate. It is the same principle for both inorganic and organic reactions. The organic molecule is just larger. That is how you have to look at it in organic chemistry just a little more complicated. These reactions are called electrophilic reactions, the simplest form of chemical reactions.
Take a student book and read it. Write down some notes, reactions. Repeat daily.
