JC A Level H2 Chemistry Tuition
Our JC, A Level, H2 Chemistry Tuition
A Level is the final gateway to university, and H2 chemistry (surprisingly not biology) is prerequisite subject for prestigious courses course such as medicine, dentistry and pharmacy. Despite the importance of H2 Chemistry, it is one of the most challenging science subject with the lowest distinction rate of 38.9%.
H2 Chemistry are organised into two levels: Core ideas and extension topics. Core ideas covers topics like Chemical bonds, Chemical energetics and Reaction Kinetics, which are inter-related and form the basis for which further learning and understanding of chemical phenomena and reactions are built upon. Extensive topics extend into the learning of different chemical systems such as organic compounds and transition metals. A good example is Transition metals, an understanding of concepts of core topics such as Chemical Bonding is extended to the study of transition metals where students learn to appreciate the similarities and differences when comparing with main group metals
JC/A Level Chemistry Tuition Teaching Methodology
When it comes to the JC Chemistry syllabus, difficult topics like Acid-Base equilibrium, Organic Chemistry, and Reaction Kinetics strike fear in the hearts of many students – and for good reason. These are multi-layered and complex topics that require a strong in-depth understanding of the underlying principles to do well in them.
Understanding the challenge students face in Chemistry, our H2 Chemistry tuition classes use a simple yet effective approach:
• Break down the concept to help you understand the underlying principles.
• Using tailored tuition materials which include step-by-step guides and challenging questions to help guide your understanding of the topic in increasing stages of difficulty.
• Provide helpful mind maps to help connect the associations and links between various concepts to unveil the bigger picture
During each H2 Chemistry tuition class, Mr Joseph breaks down a topic into multiple sections, and in each section will go in depth so as to help students understand the underlying principles behind it. We will dive deep into the mechanism and learn how to apply the concepts that are thoroughly explained in our JC Chemistry tuition classes. This will follow by showing work examples of a topical H2 Chemistry question. Students will be able to develop the ability to deconstruct the mechanism and solve the Chemistry questions.
Practice makes perfect – an inevitable truth when you want to truly master a subject or anything in life. After showing work examples in the JC H2 Chemistry tuition classes, our tutor prepare practice that helps to build up the understanding of the topics, starting from basic questions to build a strong fundamental, to complex questions that required complex analysis. Most critically, our A Level Chemistry tutor is able to provide clear step-by-step explanations for these challenging questions in person, quickly recap relevant concepts, and clarify any doubts you may have along the way. Even though our JC H2 Chemistry tuition lessons are held in group class settings, there is always dedicated time to allow for one-to-one clarifications and follow-ups where required.
About the JC/A Level Chemistry Tutor
Mr Joseph Lee (New Dawn Learning Studio Founder & Head of Science Department)
With over 10 years of teaching experience in both Secondary and JC Physics and Chemistry, Mr Joseph Lee, has handcrafted higher-order thinking questions that consist of different combination of topics. This is to help students master their content and be accustomed to thinking flexibly within the Chemistry MOE syllabus.
He has also collaborated with Shing Lee Publishers Pte Ltd to produce extensive answer keys with clear and thorough scientific explanations for past Singapore-Cambridge GCE ‘A’ Level Chemistry examination questions.
Mr Joseph believe that every student has the potential to excel given the right coaching and materials coupled with their hard work and desire to learn.

Why You Might Need JC A Level Chemistry Tuition
The A Level Chemistry syllabus, undeniably, have a lot of content to cover and generally, students will face challenges in connecting topics and extracting concepts to be used in combination. In the Singapore-Cambridge GCE ‘A’ Level Chemistry examination, examiners require students to go beyond recalling the content but to understand how chemical formulas are derived and apply the gist of every concept. When tackling a Chemistry question, students would have to identify the topics pertaining to the questions and analytically choose and use the concepts relevant from each topic. The method of answering is not straightforward, and the main role of New Dawn JC Chemistry Tuition is to help students to be able to see the link between the various topics and concepts. Even though on the surface, the topics are listed separately in the Chemistry MOE syllabus, but in actual fact, none of the topics can be studied in isolation. Students will hence feel lost and our A Level Chemistry tutors are there to bring to light on how the concepts can be linked effectively to answer the question and also strengthen the students’ scientific knowledge. There will also be Chemistry concept maps specially created for students in New Dawn JC Chemistry Tuition where all the concepts and key formulas are summarised and succinctly explained. These concept maps will help students understand the key learning objectives at one glance and also allow them to see the connections between topics more clearly.
