Using tried and tested teaching methods, more than half of Mr Ang’s student have scored distinctions in national exams. This programme is suitable for O-level, Integrated Programme and A-level H1 students.
O-level / IP / H2 Chemistry
All students are welcome to contact us to indicate your preferred time slot. We will do our best to open up classes to suit your availability.
1. How are the lessons structured? How does this benefit the student?
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 and specially-selected questions are provided to expose the students to the context that concept(s) may be tested. This reinforces understanding.
On top of that, important terms and phrases are highlighted in the notes to aid students in examination preparation.
This approach allows the student to 1) reinforce and strengthen understanding; 2) develop important examination skills; 3) correct misconceptions immediately and 4) bridge the ‘application’ gap.
2. Do you give homework?
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.
3. Is the program suitable for Integrated Programme (IP) students?
Yes. In fact, Mr Ang’s classes has helped many IP students. The curriculum for most IP schools follow the ‘O’ Level syllabus very closely, with the inclusion of some A-level concepts. The Chemistry concepts taught in this programme are very identical to what is taught in schools. Students can feel free to approach Mr Ang to clarify doubts for portions where there are differences. Mr Ang’s experience in teaching A-level Chemistry makes him well-positioned to teach Chemistry to IP students.
4. Is the program suitable for Combined Science (Physics / Chemistry or Biology/Chemistry) 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, 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.
5. What do I do if I miss a lesson?
Students who are unable to attend lesson for their allocated time slot are to arrange with Mr Ang to attend a make-up lesson within the same week.
6. What options are available for students who missed earlier topics?
Revision classes for selected topics are conducted during each school holidays. Students are welcome to sign up for these classes to catch up on the topics missed. Alternatively, the student may purchase the materials for the respective topics and arrange for consultation with Mr Ang to clarify doubts. Recorded lessons are also available for reference.
7. What topics are covered in Sec 3 & 4?
Please call to enquire.
8. What do your past students have to say about you?
Please refer to the Accolades section.
A-level H1 Chemistry
We are pleased to offer H1 Chemistry tuition (for JC 1 students) at the request of some of our most loyal students. H1 Chemistry will be personally taught by Mr Jeffrey Ang. As an ex-school teacher, Mr Ang has set and marked exam papers at the Junior College level. He has insights on the common learning difficulties and misconceptions that students have. Under his experienced tutelage, his students have scored As at the GCE A-level examinations.
“It was a joy to study chemistry under the tutelage of Jeffrey, due to the mnemonics he shared to help me remember various concepts and his willingness to meet up for consultations to ensure a clear understanding of each topic.
One cannot discount the fact that his guidance extended beyond the weekly tutorial sessions in the classroom – I benefitted greatly from the topical notes provided by Jeffrey, which included specially curated keywords, tables, and exercises to help me with my answering techniques during my revision.
Jeffrey also ensured that we would be confident answering the paper under exam conditions. He went through numerous actual exam papers in detail, down to even analysing each option in a multiple choice question.
I tackled Chemistry at the A levels with confidence because of the many practices and assurances from Jeffrey’s classes. His enthusiasm and joy in teaching the subject, and his care for his students helped me to truly appreciate the relevance of Chemistry rather than see it as but another A-level subject. I recommend any student struggling with Chemistry, as did I, to invest their time in Jeffrey’s classes. You will see that much can be done with the right kind of help.”
