Why do I need Chemistry Tuition?

Chemistry in the 21st century refers to a broad category of studies that involve the very basics of life and structures. Consider this, What are things made of? What is an atom? What is a periodic table?
With different MOE syllabuses and subject combinations offered by schools, parents usually lack the expertise to assist their children to answer these questions. Therefore, a chemistry tuition lesson aims to teach students to tackle these questions with ease and confidence.

How do you teach Chemistry Tuition 

To answer the question of how we teach Chemistry Tuition, it is paramount to first introduce our tutors at The Achievers Dream. All of our tutors have a firm background in chemistry, with an awareness of the syllabus and classroom pedagogy. We place a focus on both content knowledge and practical skills to equip students with the right tool for the examinations.

Chemistry - Content Knowledge

Chemistry contains roughly 14 chapters for A levels syllabus, and 11 chapters for the O levels syllabus.
Additionally, the content is also intended to achieve specified assessment outcomes. (Cambridge Assessment standards).
: AO1, Knowledge with understanding
: AO2,Handling information and solving problems
: AO3,Experimental skills and investigations
Normally, figuring out the scoring criterions and figuring out the right answers would be an intimidating and daunting task. However, The Achievers Dream uses a combination of colourful summarised cheat sheets, carefully curated worksheets and a "multi-sensory approach" to tackle the above-mentioned chapters and learning objectives. With our integrated model of approach, each part of the chapter is broken down into bite-sized information.

Additionally, instead of a one-size fit all teaching style, our tutors are inclined to tag along with students and account for improvements every step of the way. With this approach, it is easier to identify individual mistakes and personalise feedback for students.

Chemistry - Practical tests and Experiments

While content knowledge is important, chemistry practical tests also account for a portion of the overall assessment.
For example, the A-levels H2 Chemistry syllabus has an assessment objective weighing 20%, as shown in the following breakdown. (%)

1) Knowledge with understanding - 32% (Papers 1, 2, 3)
2) Handling, applying and evaluating information - 48% (Papers 1, 2, 3)
3) Experimental skills and investigations - 20% (Paper 4)

Similarly, at The Achievers Dream, we offer chemistry lab sessions for students in an (NEA) approved lab. Our teaching objective is to allow students to discover the most effective way to master practical skills and theory lessons by adopting AD’s unique teaching methodology ‘360 Total Chemistry Learning System’ used by more than 1000+ students from 93+ Schools.

In Summary 

With all factors considered, we teach Chemistry through multiple approaches for content and practical use. Nonetheless, at the core of this learning experience is the joy of learning and discovery. Chemistry does not need to be a subject that is hard to conquer. If you require lessons or assistance, contact us or head to our website to learn more about our teaching methods.
