The O’ level chemistry tuition program is conducted on a weekly basis. Lessons are repeated multiple times per week. Various lesson structures are available to cater to the different learning needs of students:

  1. Lectures and Tutorials
  2. Intensive revision & head-start program
  3. One-to-one coaching

These diversities allow us to reach out to students with different needs, as we understand through experience that every student has a unique learning methodology that best suits them. Our rigorous program, coupled with excellent materials and delivery by our Chemistry tutor allows us to be widely recognised as the best Chemistry tuition for O’ level students in Singapore.

Lessons are conducted in Lecture/ Tutorial style.

Students and parents often comment that it is difficult for students to ‘apply’ concepts learnt when answering test and examination questions and this often results in lacklustre performance, despite having ‘studied very hard’.

In our lessons, the sub-topics are sequenced very carefully. At the end of a sub-topic, appropriate examples are provided to expose the students to the context that concept(s) may be tested. This reinforces understanding.On top of that, specially-selected questions are provided for students to attempt.

This approach allows the student to

  1. reinforce and strengthen understanding;
  2. develop important examination skills;
  3. correct misconceptions immediately
  4. bridge the ‘application’ gap.

Yes sure! We offer multiple time slots for the same level within the same week. The lessons are repeated and exactly the same. No stress when you cannot make it for your usual slot, there is always a make up class available for you.

Video recorded lessons are also available for viewing for students who miss the entire week of lessons.

Yes. Homework will be given, where appropriate, so that students can have sufficient opportunities to apply the concepts learnt in the programme. At the same  time, lesson time can be utilised more effectively for learning.

Yes. The curriculum for most IP schools follow the ‘O’ Level syllabus very closely, with some A-level concepts. The Chemistry concepts taught in this programme  are very similar to what is taught in schools. Students can feel free to approach out tutor to clarify doubts for portions where there are differences. Our tutor’s experience in teaching A-level Chemistry makes him well-positioned to teach Chemistry to IP students.

Yes. The rigour of the programme will allow combined science students to have a deeper conceptual understanding of the syllabus content and thus do well for  the Chemistry section of the paper.

For combined science students aspiring to read Chemistry at the Junior College level, attending the lessons for topics such as Electrochemistry, Ammonia, Macromolecules (which are not in the Combined Science Syllabus) would ensure that they are as well prepared as their counterparts who read Pure Chemistry in Secondary School.

Yes sure! We always have new students coming in who may need help for previously-taught chapters.

You can choose from either of the following:

  1. As all our lessons are video recorded, you may view our recorded lessons at a discounted rate, followed by a consultation session to clarify any questions that you may have.
  2. We will run crash courses every school holiday to readdress all the major chapters that were previously taught. You may want to attend the crash courses during the March, June and September school holidays to catch up on previously-taught chapters.
