Our tutors undergo months of training before they can lead classes, so you can be assured that our tutors are top-notch and top-quality.
He covers everything in detail, he explains concepts really, really well, and he can pretty much teach almost any subject! JC Chemistry, JC Maths, Lower Secondary Maths and Science etc. Ask him any question after class and he will be more than happy to help clarify your doubts!
At PMC, we are one of the only learning centres that would offer lower secondary Science classes. This is to provide them with the opportunity to master the foundation of Physics and have a critical appreciation of the concepts in the subject. The skills taught in the early years will also prove to be useful for them when they advance to Secondary 3 and 4 where all students need master advanced answering skills / techniques!
We have alternative programmes such as 1-to-1 gold class private lessons as well as digital membership. The A-Level H2 Chemistry syllabus undeniably involves a lot of memory work. However, JC Chemistry lessons in PMC aim to help students cut down on their need to memorize concepts. Students are not only trained to effectively “memorize” reactions, but also hone their problem-solving and application skill sets at the same time. Thus you can still “memorize” and apply as effectively with our resources at your own timing and pace.
Instead of using bulky A4-sized lecture notes to help students recall Organic Chemistry reactions, we make use of small yet handy cue cards to aid students in their memorization. These flashcards contain the 4 key components to understanding every reaction – Equation, Type of Reaction, Reagents & Conditions, and Observations (if any). Therefore, students are able to remember and recall reactions anytime, anywhere!
Even J2 students tend to struggle with these hard-to-grasp topics. The Chem Café has nicely summarized content into tables for easy visual reference. Students will be able to effectively learn definitions and concepts concurrently – which is essential for strengthening their Chemistry foundation.
Apart from Organic Chemistry, The Periodic Table is another major chapter which involves a lot of intensive memory-work. However, our notes are structured in such a way that at one glance, students can easily recall the structure, bonding, equation and nature (pH) of elements and compounds.
At The Chem Café, we equip students with the skills to tackle questions that differentiate B or C-grade students from A-grade students. Additional lessons are conducted every year to dedicate time for the review of challenging questions. Not only do students learn the various methods to solve such questions, they will also learn how to clearly see the links between different chapters.
Our tutors do not have conflicting teaching styles, and our worksheets are prepared, reviewed, and updated thoroughly by the tutors themselves for our community of over 1000 students. Our structured lessons are planned carefully with the majority of students’ needs in mind.
In this lesson, our JC1 Chemistry tutor goes through the different types of chemical bonding as well as comparing them to let students further understand the fundamental differences.
Rate-Concentration Graphs are common in most Chemistry exam papers. Although it may seem simple, the tutor explains to the students clear steps to ensure that no errata is made from the calculations of the formulas.
To know more about the shape of molecules in chemistry, bond angles and VSEPR theory are studied to produce an accurate molecule diagram. Our tutor explains the relationship through a series of practice questions for the students.
The tutor breaks down the definition and analysis of the VSEPR theory, one of the most important concepts in chemical bonding.
Rate of reaction is affected by many variables, and exam questions like to focus on such concept points. Our tutor goes through the steps of deriving the answers.
Rate constants can be derived from concentration graphs to tell us more about the chemical reaction. The tutor explains more during the lesson by going through an example JC question.
