O Level Chemistry

Many students struggle with O Level Chemistry as they encounter difficulties in connecting the various concepts together and they did not know what Cambridge examiners are looking out for in the answers. Our secondary chemistry tuition, also known as the O Level Chemistry tuition programme, is meticulously designed to bridge these gaps. Our O Level Chemistry tutors are trained to help you to connect the various chemistry concepts together and highlight to you the important points to include in your O Level Chemistry examinations.

Key Features of O Level Chemistry Tuition by The Chemistry Practice

Our O Level Chemistry tuition class is a structured programme including sec 3 and sec 4 chemistry tuition that will help students gain confidence and mastery of the topics in O Level Chemistry and eventually improve their grades in the subject. All lessons are taught by our professional and highly qualified O-level Chemistry tutor, Ms Hazel, who is an ex-MOE school teacher. Our teaching experience allows our tutors to efficiently identify the learning difficulties among the students and create a tailored teaching approach for them. Enrol your child in our O-level Chemistry Tuition today to start honing the skills he/she needs to excel in Chemistry.

Weekly Physical Class Tuition

2-hour lessons are conducted weekly via physical class. Tutor will provide summary of topic and go through practices in class. Students can expect lots of engagement by tutor.

T.C.P. Methodology

T = Techniques on solving questions
C = Content mastery of all topics
P = Practice questions and solutions

Focus on Understanding

The O Level Chemistry syllabus requires students to have a deeper fundamental understanding of concepts and students who study via rote memory will not do well. 

Higher Order Questions

Practicing simple questions will not help students to improve, The Chemistry Practice will expose students to higher order questions in order to stretch their ability.

WhatsApp Q&A Support

All students of The Chemistry Practice will be given a direct number to the tutor, where they can WhatsApp chemistry questions from school or tuition.

Quizzes

Quizzes will be conducted after certain topics to check on students’ understanding and to help them consolidate. Quizzes will also help to identify the areas for improvement.

Common Challenges Faced By O Level Chemistry Secondary Students

Practical Laboratory Skills

O-level chemistry often includes practical laboratory work. Students may find it challenging to apply theoretical knowledge to real-world experiments, leading to difficulties in understanding and conducting experiments accurately. Effective laboratory skills taught in O-level chemistry tuition are vital for both coursework and exams, making this a significant challenge.

Mathematical Components

O-level chemistry often involves mathematical calculations, especially in topics like stoichiometry, chemical equations, and molar ratios. Without an O-level chemistry tutor, some students may find these mathematical aspects challenging, particularly if they lack a strong foundation in mathematics or struggle with mathematical problem-solving.

Conceptual Linkages

Understanding how different chemistry concepts are interconnected can be challenging for some students. Chemistry is a subject that builds upon earlier concepts, so a solid foundation is essential. Students may struggle to see the relationships between different topics, making it harder to apply their knowledge effectively and excel in the subject. Secondary chemistry tuition can address these challenges.

2024 Lesson Schedule and Fees

Students will need to attend one lesson per week, however, nearer to O Level Chemistry papers or End-of-Year exams for IP students, there will be extra lessons to prepare students for exams. Our O Level Chemistry / IP Chemistry curriculum for Sec 3 / Year 3 and Sec 4 / Year 4 classes are planned and structured such that our students will finish the syllabus in time for our revision programme prior to O Level examinations or End-of-Year examinations. 

The fees shown below are based on per lesson, however, fees will be collected on a termly basis (each term consist of 10 to 11 lessons). Depending on the number of lessons in the term, fees will be calculated accordingly. Term fees will be pro-rated for students joining in the midst of a term.

Mr kelvin is a very patient teacher who answers our questions,gives free consultations willingly and allocates time to answer our question outside of tuition times,and goes all out to give the best explanation to make the understanding of the content easier for me. He also gives many booklets of questions to practice and provides all answer keys and video recordings of explanations. He's also funny and makes jokes along the way in class and he never judges the questions we ask,no matter how basic our questions are. He's the best teacher anyone can ask for help to get through a subject well and have love for the subject!-Shazwani

If you are struggling with H2 Chemistry, join this centre ASAP. The tuition fees are affordable as compared to the exorbitant rates that other centres charge, and the notes provided are exceptional (p.s. he predicted one of the chemistry practical experiments this year). On top of that, Mr Kelvin is a remarkable and patient teacher who is able to explain challenging concepts well. Whenever I text Mr Kelvin, he will always answer my questions as quickly as he can. His passion and dedication stand out, and I am fortunate to have him as my teacher. He is one of the best Chemistry teachers I have ever had. Thank you Mr Kelvin!

Mr Kelvin has been crucial in helping me improve tremendously in H2 Chemistry. In the span of 7 months my grades jumped from a fail to a high B for Prelims. I always look forward to his lessons. He took the time to answer all my questions after lesson which would take up about 15mins every time. My understanding and enthusiasm for the subject elevated significantly under his guidance!

Mr Kelvin is a professional and experienced tutor who never fails to break down the more difficult topics in H2 Chemistry (eg Acid Base Equilibria and Advanced Organic Chemistry Questions) into digestible bits for his students. The materials provided are comprehensive and they print out A4 booklets for each student! Outside of class, Mr Kelvin is helpful and approachable, and always replies with insightful, clear and concise answers through voice message. This is on top of the flashcards provided on the online portal to aid in content revision. Definitely value for money and would recommend!

I love this tuition centre ok I am honestly kinda sad I cant go back here because I finished o levels. Coming here was something I looked forward to because my teacher was super sweet and was more than happy to explain concepts i couldn’t get before and after class, and because shes so determined to get me to understand the topic I also do my best to reciprocate the same amount of effort. I also love the notes we are given which I use more than my school textbook because its way more concise 🙂 Thanks Miss Hazel I miss your lessons !

Mr Kelvin is one of the most caring, patient and dedicated teachers I have ever met. Fueled by his strong passion, his lessons are engaging and he explains concepts in a way that is easy to understand and digest. This makes learning chemistry much easier (even the often-lamented organic chemistry chapters). Lessons and notes given by Mr Kelvin are well structured and greatly aid with mastery of the subject content. Beyond that, Mr Kelvin puts in the effort to ensure that all of us are well prepared for our exams through carefully curated revision packages – with commonly tested questions as well as challenging questions to stretch us. Mr Kelvin is also very approachable and always ready to extend his help whenever needed. I am very lucky to have been taught by him and definitely would not have enjoyed Chemistry as much as I did without his help. If you are looking to find your love for Chemistry and ace the subject, I strongly recommend Mr Kelvin!😊
Mr Kelvin's lessons are easy to understand even though I've been attending them online and not for physical lessons. I learn much better with the detailed explanations for concepts and even managed to jump 2 grades to get an A for prelims! The practical revisions were also very useful in helping me prepare for the A level practical exam since my school didn't have nay form of revision after Prelims.
