Secondary Chemistry Tuition, Singapore
Stand up to the challenge of chemistry
Mastering the concepts in chemistry is certainly not a child’s play as many would agree. Chemistry offered at the upper secondary level tests students knowledge on the basic building block of matter and the interactions that bring about many of the things we see in everyday life. Therefore, the Chemistry tuition programmes featured by SGEducators provide a platform for students to actively explore and learn this subject.
Objectives of the Sec Chemistry Tuition
Achieve outstanding chemistry results
The goal of secondary chemistry tuition programmes featured by SGEducators is to instill inquisitive mindset in every student that will fuel their learning desire and hence allowing them to learn optimally and ace their examinations.
Build content knowledge
Students will be provided with the relevant and important learning concepts from chemistry. With the interactive and information-rich lessons, students will be able to sustain their interest in chemistry. At the same time, tutors will constantly revise with students on the previously learned knowledge as to keep the concepts familiar with the students so that they can progress easier in their learning especially on topics that require good foundation in chemistry.
Develop exam strategies and confidence
A large part of a student’s grade in chemistry is not only on their familiarity with the content knowledge but also how they handle their examination. Time-management skills will be emphasised in our featured programmes so that students will never feel unprepared and therefore more confident to tackle their examination.
Instill lifelong learning
The teams that designed the programmes featured by SGEducators do not wish students learn just for the sake of examination. The tutors in the programmes will constantly encourage students to learn beyond the syllabus and continue to explore other areas in which chemistry can be applied. With such active learning attitude, students will be able to better handle questions that demand skillful application of the learned concepts.
Features of our Programme
Receive constant support for your chemistry
Chemistry can be a demanding subject especially when many of the students who are introduced to it are struggling with many other learning obstacles. Therefore, the programmes featured by SGEducators focus on making sure students do not feel left out and helpless in their pursuit of acing their chemistry.
Concise notes for revision
As chemistry can be rather content heavy, summarised notes have been prepared to highlight to students the key points of every chapter. This is so that they can focus on the relevant sections to understand before taking on the examinations.
Sound methodology suitable for various learning needs
Our tutors adopt the progressive learning model to help students adapt to the learning pace in their school as well as the examination demand. As a wide variety of learning aids is utilised to facilitate the students’ understanding of chemistry concepts, the key points of the lessons can be imparted clearly to most students.
Consistent revision and practice
Students will expect to apply whatever they have learned to answering questions in examination paper. As such, practice papers will be provided and discussed to keep the students sufficiently challenged and spur their thinking further. The tutors are mindful of the difficulties of the paper and will progressively test the students so that they can further refine their content knowledge.
O Level Chemistry Syllabus
Understanding learning requirements
The O level Chemistry is offered as a full subject (Pure Chemistry) or half subject (Combined Chemistry) to cater to students of different learning pace and interest. Regardless of the type of Chemistry subject offered, students are expected to apply their learned knowledge to varied contexts as brought out by the examination questions.
Pure Chemistry (5073/6092)
Students taking the Pure Chemistry syllabus will be required to complete an MCQ-paper, structured question paper, and a practical/school-based assessment (based on subject code), all in separate seating.
Science Practical Assessment(SPA)
SPA, also known as school-based practical assessment has a 20% weightage on the total paper and it assesses students on their science practical skills and their ability to perform, observe, analyse and plan for experiments. Each candidate is assessed for the different skill-set mentioned above.
Theory Paper 1
The theory paper 1 has 40 compulsory MCQs totalling 40 marks and it takes up 1hour. A copy of the periodic table will be given to students.
Theory Paper 2
Paper 2 consists of 2 sections, section A and B and students are expected to complete it in 1h 45mins. Section A carries 50 marks and has structured questions while section B carries 30 marks and comprises of 3 structured questions. Of these 3 questions the first 2 will be presented in the form of a data based questions. The last question will be in an either/or form. A copy of the periodic table will be given to students.
