Spot a tutor holding to a bottle of coke in PMC? That must be Mr JT, it’s his signature drink to begin his Sec Chemistry lesson. With the caffeine at work, Mr JT’s 2h lesson is never boring, not even for 1 second. He keeps students engaged conceptually and emotionally. Don’t ask me how he did it. He just can do it. Students are always looking forward to his lesson and sits at the edge of their chairs ready to answer his questions.
Want to be tutored by someone more familiar and relatable? With so many of our students from ACS (Independent), you’ll definitely find some familiarity in Mr H! He’s one of PMC’s youngest tutors. Questioning his quality and ability? It’s not about how old he is in age, it’s about how experienced he is, despite being young! He has worked at MOE school for a period of time and helped failing students obtain desirable A or B grades in the national exams. He also kickstarted secondary school Chemistry programme in his previous tutoring experience! Impressive, eh?
Most of our existing secondary Physics tuition students also attend our Sec Chemistry tuition classes in PMC! What attracts them to take up almost all the three subjects available? Our Chemistry tutors have a part to play for this. They are trained for months by our head of PMC before they’re entrusted to take on classes on their own. We ensure that all our tutors are of a high calibre.
PMC outlet’s aren’t just to have tuition lessons. Existing PMCians are welcomed to visit our tuition centres any time during our opening hours to study and revise, it’s a perk that only our students can enjoy so you no longer have to fight to limited seats at libraries or cafes.
The number below can be contacted beyond the 2-hour long tuition classes for non-academic matters like enquiries and school fees. Better yet, if you’ve any burning chemistry question regarding any homework question, students can take a photo of their attempt at it and send to the same number. Any academic queries will be relayed to the respective tutors to answer. This way, students still have reach to their tutors even after classes.

PMC’s environment is healthy and we thrive on positive, encouraging influences. That’s probably how it is with friends and family too, one feels motivated when they’re constantly encouraged and given constructive feedbacks. Though we allow both onsite and online lessons at the comfort of one’s home, our students are always immersed in their classes and never left out. Class participation matters a lot to us, and we give pretty good incentives if our students partake in class actively.
Everyone differs in terms of learning. You could be an audio learner whereas your friend learns well visually! Likewise, we’ve different choices for you to choose from, if you’re uncomfortable being in a large group setting. Apart from our cosy-sized group tuitions, we have 1-to-1 gold class private lessons and digital membership – a programme you can choose to attend if you prefer studying at your own time and pace! The Sec Chemistry is a tad bit similar to Math. One topic can help answer another and they go hand-in-hand at times. Well, now that all of us are here at PMC, our tutors plan and teach their lesson in a way that every type of learners go home with new takeaways or enlightenment of the topic taught.
You can start by analysing the questions properly, highlight the keywords or suggestive and directive words like “define”, “explain” and “describe”. Explaining and describing are two different things and it could be misleading if you understand it wrongly. When a question asks you to explain, they likely want you to use the relevant concepts to back up your observations, whereas describing requires you to use results or observations. Identifying keywords could help you know what topic the question is testing you on!
While PMC grows in demand, our result maintains batches after batches of students. This year (2020), we have more than 90% of our students getting distinction. Unimpressed? Some of them even topped their level for this particular subject. We also applaud the students for working hard throughout the year with PMC.
Our tutors do not have differing teaching styles. Rest assured that our worksheets are prepared, reviewed thoroughly and updated by the tutors for our community of 1000 students. PMC plan our structured lessons carefully with majority of the students’ needs in mind.
Have younger siblings taking science lessons in PMC. Do you know that the demonstrations in class, lower secondary science textbooks and the whole curriculum are prepared by our upper secondary tutors? Hence, you will receive the best Sec Chemistry tuition notes in Singapore, I am sure!
