In organic chemistry we look at the hybridization of electron orbitals in to something called molecular orbitals.
The s and p orbitals in a carbon atom combine into four hybridized orbitals that repel each other in a shape much like that of four balloons tied together.
Remember what a tetrahedron looks like ?
