    Our Credentials

    Our teachers at The Chemistry Lab hold ourselves to high standards for the education of our students. Most of us either graduate with first class Honours or went for postgraduate studies in acclaimed universities that are recognised worldwide. We acknowledge that being knowledgeable in the subject itself and being able to impart the knowledge competently go hand in hand.

    That is why every tutor under us is hand-picked via a stringent selection process to test their aptitude as well as being able to simplify explanations on the subject.

    MOE-Registered Teachers

    The Ministry of Education has registered the majority of our chemistry teachers at The Chemistry Lab. This entails verification checks by MOE to ensure an individual has a clean legal record. In addition, university transcripts and official documents have to be reviewed before being endorsed by the ministry. This certification is in line with our core values of integrity and responsibility of our teachers.

    This is usually a pleasant surprise to many parents who were not aware of such accreditation and they have given positive responses that our tutors are not only competent in teaching but also are able to conduct themselves properly and appropriately. This allows parents to put their children into the tutor’s care and protection without any worries.

    Small Class Sizes

    We keep our teacher-to-students ratio to an effective level for class tuitions. Research has revealed that students learn better with smaller class sizes as students are more willing to engage with teachers.  Accommodation to every student’s needs can also be better achieved. This is why we limit our class sizes to benefit students.

    Comprehensive Materials

    Besides teaching, one key element to ensure our students’ success is the content of our learning materials. We understand that students are reliant on handout and notes for revision before the examination.

    That is why we have come up with simplified materials that are straight forward and easy to comprehend at a glance. Our tutors have painstakingly scrutinised and compiled these sets of notes from various sources such as past year papers and school handouts with  attached questions and answers so that these notes become a one-stop solution to their Chemistry examinations.

    Conducive Classrooms

    All rooms are set to 23 deg C for productive learning
    Classrooms are fitted with HDTVs and projector screens for visualisations
    Our desks are corporate-styled conference tables with pine-wood trimmings

    A Comprehensive Curriculum ― With Step-By-Step Exam Guide

    Our students are our top priority. That is why we strive to create a complete curriculum that stretches their potential while keeping in mind that students also have their own lives to lead. This allows us to build good rapport and mutual understanding with our students which keeps them motivated and engaged during the lessons. This enables students to attain their peak performance in the examination without burning out.

    We recognise that studying Chemistry can be frustrating at times due to various abstract theories. That is why we have formulated a simple step-by-step examination handbook to help students streamline and have a better grasp of the theories before applying them in practice questions. We know that with this guide in hand, our students will enter the examination hall with boosted confidence and do well in their Chemistry examination.

    Corporate Responsibility

    We have worked with an NGO & MOE to offer subsidised chemistry tuition for students requiring financial assistance. The lessons are held at MOE schools on weekends. We wish to contribute back to Singapore with every little effort that we can.

    Acing the chemistry exam by studying smart

    By A Level Chemistry, Chemistry Exam, O Level ChemistryNo Comments

    Curiosity is key to studying any science, chemistry most of all. It is the first step to ace chemistry. Luckily, it is easy to be curious about chemistry. Especially if you find the right guidance, at school and/ or at your tuition institute. Chemistry is a foundational subject for many disciplines related to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). Regardless, chemistry is important to appreciate and understand many realities of modernity. If you understand the basics of chemistry, you will be able to appreciate novel agricultural technologies, modern medicine, efficient building materials, electricity generation, and much more.

    In other words, the science of chemistry is vibrant in your daily life. It is present in the food you eat, the perfume you wear, the vehicles you drive, and whatnot. So, the first step in acing chemistry shouldn’t be that hard.

    Why is chemistry different?

    The chemistry syllabus can be broadly divided into four sections. This applies both to school and university-level chemistry. General chemistry, inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, and physical chemistry fit in within the umbrella of chemistry. However, unlike divisions in other heavy sciences, these divisions of chemistry are quite different from one another. Some subjects need an appreciation of physics, some need memorization skills, and some need proficiency in math. As you may have heard, chemistry is sometimes called applied physics.

    Hence why tuitions in Singapore often employ different techniques or tutors to teach different sections of Chemistry.

    Singaporean students are among the best-performing student groups in the world. Naturally, as a result, the education system in Singapore is highly competitive. A well-adjusted student balancing time between curricular, co-curricular activities, and extra-curricular activities are challenged hard when preparing for national exams. The wide scope of chemistry makes it even harder. Students can go on cramming and find no end to the depth of the syllabus. That’s exactly why working smart is more important in chemistry than working hard. Finding the right tuition center, tutors, and study techniques is important to ace chemistry.

    Effective learning-teaching techniques for chemistry

    Good tuition institutes are well aware of the fast-paced lives of modern students. Thus these tuition institutes employ efficient techniques to make sure that the student saves enough time to pursue other interests while excelling in academics. The well-trained tutors identify the learning style of each student and fine-tune their teaching methods accordingly. The tutor also uses different teaching methods or tools for each division.

    General chemistry and sections of physical chemistry are closely related to physics. A good tutor will help students understand and retain better by pointing out such relations. Inorganic chemistry can be retained much better by using spaced repetition techniques. A good tuition institute can help students in this by educating students about flashcard marking, and other techniques. Practical demonstrations of inorganic chemistry practicals create exciting and colorful memories for students. Organic chemistry involves studying the three-dimensional structure of molecules, their properties, and how they interact with each other. Organic chemistry lessons are often best explained using analogies from the larger world. Most of all, chemistry is all around us. The tutor only has to point it out and the curious student would start observing these correlations between what’s taught and what’s seen. A good tuition institute will employ tutors who are well aware of all these nuances of chemistry teaching.

    The right tuition, the right peer group

    Finding peers who compliment your level of curiosity and dedication is not easy. Not even in Singapore! But finding the right peers is more important in Singapore. Chemistry is a subject with a wide scope of content and a range of needed skills. Not all students will appreciate every topic in the syllabus. Not all students will have the skills needed for each topic. That’s where the peer group comes in. One student can be skilled in inorganic chemistry, another in physical chemistry, and so on. Therefore, students can work as a group by discussing with, and/ or tutoring each other. At the end of the day, each student will benefit. The right tuition institute will encourage this by providing the environment and resources needed to form productive peer groups.

    The keys to acing chemistry are developing some curiosity, finding the right tuition that employs tutors who use the best teaching methods, revising using effective study techniques, and finding the right peer group.

    How To Excel At Memorisation Of Chemistry Content

    By A Level Chemistry, Chemistry Exam, O Level Chemistry, UncategorizedNo Comments

    Being good at memorisation can only only help you out in the soft subjects such as History, but also in hard subjects, such as Chemistry. Although Chemistry does not have as many formulas unlike Physics or Maths, it does contain a lot of chemical names and equations that students have to become familiar with in order to do well in exams. In addition, certain problem solving techniques are also essential for some types of questions. There is no doubt that a student who excels at this will have an easier time applying his knowledge appropriately.

    Achieving That Prized A1 for Chemistry

    By Chemistry ExamNo Comments

    To achieve A1 or A is the end goal for students who are taking Chemistry for their O or A levels respectively. There has been a misconception going around that getting A1s or As are reserved only for the most intelligent students, or you have to put in an enormous amount of time and effort to ever reach that milestone if you do not have the flair for Chemistry. However, it is what is is, just a misconception.

    Why Doing Well In Chemistry Is Important

    Students can choose to take Pure or Combined Chemistry from upper secondary level onwards as one of the core subjects in Singapore. It serves as a requirement for various degrees available in University, including the fields of Pharmacy and Medicine.

    Beyond further studies, understanding Chemistry can also allow students to appreciate our surroundings, from the clothes we wear, the food we eat to environmental issues. In recent times, there has been global campaigning of sustainable living and advocates of this movement are getting younger. Being well-versed in Chemistry not only allows the future generation to be aware of sticky issues pertaining to the environment but also spearhead initiatives in their own little way to make the world a better place to live in.

    Our tutors at The Chemistry Lab are able to provide a good foundation of the subject beyond what is taught in textbooks. This is achieved using interactive diagrams, interesting trivia and real world applications of Chemistry. We also get students to relate the importance of Chemistry to global issues and become savvy when they step out into society.
