Out of 30 interviewees, only 1 JC chemistry tutor is shortlisted. Our tutors undergo months of training before they can lead classes, so you can be sure that our tutors are top-notch and top-quality. We understand that JC chemistry tuition classes lay a foundation for A levels.
Rumors say that visual learners tend to fare better in Chemistry as a subject. However, PMC’s unique teaching methodology ensures that even students who are non-visual learners will be grasp concepts well.
At PMC, we are one of the few learning centres that offer lower secondary Science classes. This is meant to give students an opportunity to master the foundation and have a critical appreciation of the concepts in the subject. The skills taught in the early years also prove to be useful when students advance to Secondary 3 and 4. The skills gained are necessary for mastery of advanced answering skills / techniques.
We have alternative programmes such as one on one 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.
We don’t only train students to effectively “memorize” reactions, but also hone their problem-solving and application skill sets. 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 memorization. These flashcards contain the 4 key components to understanding every reaction:
Therefore, students can always remember reactions!
Even J2 students tend to struggle with these hard-to-grasp topics. The Chem Café has nicely summarized content into tables and flashcards for easy visual reference. Students will be able to effectively learn definitions and concepts concurrently – which is essential for strengthening their Chemistry foundation. Whether it is kinetic or equilibrium, we’ve got you covered.
Apart from Organic Chemistry, The Periodic Table is another major chapter which involves a lot of intensive memory-work. 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 skills to tackle questions that help students move from B or C to A. 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 also learn how to clearly see the links between different chapters.
Our tutors do not have conflicting teaching styles. We prepare, review, and update our worksheets thoroughly for our community of over 1000 students. PMC JC Chemistry tutors have structured lessons 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. We also compare 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 error 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.
Many variables affect the rate of reaction. Exam questions like to focus on such concept points and our tutor goes through the steps of deriving the answers.
You can derive rate constants from concentration graphs to know more about the chemical reaction. The tutor explains more during the lesson by going through an example JC question.
