In our O Level Physics and O Level Chemistry tuition classes, challenging concepts will be broken down and simplified so as to assist students to understand the complete flow of Science, thereby preparing them adequately for their exams.

 

‘O’ level Chemistry

O level Chemistry may seem daunting for many but with the attentive guidance of our tutors, the seemingly difficult concepts can be broken down into information that is digestible and easy to remember. Our tutors are not only focused on helping students score well for Singapore-Cambridge GCE ‘O’ Level Chemistry examination, but also seek to ensure that students remember what they have learned in the long run. This serve as an optimal foundation for their pursuit for scientific knowledge and more importantly, their preparation for Singapore-Cambridge GCE ‘A’ Level Chemistry examination. Based on these ideals, the tuition classes will not only be productive but also allow the students to absorb the syllabus easier with our innovative teaching methods. We do not believe in purely memorising content or solely on drilling the students but rather, to find suitable teaching methods for every student so that they can understand the MOE syllabus and take ownership of their learning. Our tutor, Mr Joseph Lee, strategically compiled questions according to topics and level of difficulty to cater to the students’ learning pace and challenge them with higher-order thinking questions. He collaborated with Shing Lee Publishers Pte Ltd to produce extensive answer keys with clear and thorough scientific explanations for Singapore-Cambridge GCE ‘A’ Level Chemistry examination. Similarly, for the notes provided, the answers for every question from MCQ to Short Answer Questions, written from scratch by him, will be very clear and thorough, solidifying the students’ learning in Chemistry. We currently have students taking Chemistry tuition lessons from over 18 Secondary schools including Raffles Girls’ Secondary School, Nanyang Girls’ High School and St. Joseph High school etc.

For O level Chemistry, the typical topics that students generally find difficult are chemical bonding, chemical equilibrium, chemical reactions, electrochemistry, mole concept, and qualitative analysis. This is because they are more abstract in nature as compared to scientific experimental methods. Our tutors will facilitate the students’ learning by helping them to visualise and not only memorise the chemical bonds and reactions taught. This is to allow students to think more flexibly during examinations once they can visualise concepts and diagrams for themselves and apply it in solving higher-order thinking questions. To further enhance students’ learning abilities and memory, detailed concept maps are created by our tutors that help link various topics and concepts that will provide students a fuller understanding of the topics and what is required of them during the Singapore-Cambridge GCE ‘O’ Level Chemistry examination. This will greatly grant them a unique advantage in Junior College, in their preparation for the Singapore-Cambridge GCE ‘A’ Level Chemistry examination, where Chemistry examination papers intricately link several topics and scientific concepts in every question.

 

‘O’ Level Physics

Why is the sea salty? What is the speed of light in vacuum? It is the element of physics to answer such questions. Physics extends well into your everyday life and it is the most fundamental of the sciences and seeks to understand all-natural phenomena in terms of basic principles.

We will reinforce key new topics that are taught in secondary schools such as Static Electricity, Magnetism and Electromagnetism to prepare students for GCE-O level Physics examination.

Also, to enhance their learning by developing their theoretical and conceptual framework of physics. This is to help students to acquire high level of analytical ability which they can also apply to real life situations.

Physics experiments will be carried out during our Physics tuition lesson to help students visualise concepts.

Besides imparting scientific knowledge to our students at our Secondary Physics tuition, we hope to stimulate excitement as they discover the wonders of physics that govern our universe and the mathematics behind it.
