How students improved from Us to As and Bs under Ms Sim’s guidance
Our Chemistry Tutor
The A Level Chemistry tuition programme is tutored by Ms Sim Lily, an ex-lecturer with more than 16 years of experience teaching JC Chemistry. She holds a Bachelor of Applied Science with Honours (Applied Chemistry) from the National University of Singapore (NUS). Upon graduation, she enrolled into National Institute of Education (NIE) and obtained her Postgraduate Diploma in Education (PGDE). She has also attended the Cambridge International Examination Marking Course.
Ms Sim started her teaching career at National Junior College and taught there for more than 10 years. In 2014, she left NJC to fully devote her time in tutoring JC Chemistry. She has tutored students from all junior colleges including Raffles Institution, Hwa Chong Institution, Victoria Junior College and Dunman High School.
Why Learn with Us?
Proven Track Record
For all the students she has taught to date, 65% of them scored A’s and 93% scored A’s and B’s. 90% of her students who had originally scored U’s managed to score B’s and above in their A level H2 chemistry examination. That is a significant improvement in grades!
Proprietary Resources & After Class Support
Ms Sim provides summary notes capturing commonly tested key concepts and includes a set of specially compiled comments by Cambridge examiners to help students ace their exams. Having previously attended the Cambridge International Examination Marking Course, it has equipped Ms Sim with the knowledge to know what the examiners are looking out for when marking the A level Chemistry exam papers. Students will have access to Ms Sim’s question bank that has exam questions from all junior colleges to give her students additional practice opportunity and an unfair advantage over their peers. We have also designed a tool called the “Progress Tracker” to help students get real time feedback on their progress in order to maximize their performance. Ms Sim also supports her students between lessons via Whatsapp if they have any questions.
Purposeful & Clear Lesson Delivery
Ms Sim finds out from her students the topics they need help on and reviews their past common test or exam to identify key areas to focus on in their: 1) Application and Bookwork, 2) Weakest component across the three key components (Physical Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry and Organic Chemistry), and 3) Weakest topic. Ms Sim focuses doing a thorough diagnosis because she recognises that each student has different learning needs. She has the ability to break down difficult concepts into simple, bite size learning content to help students in their understanding and application of Chemistry. Consultation time is also allocated to address questions from her students. Read more about Ms Sim’s unique teaching approach.
Effective Exam Answering Techniques
With many years of teaching experience under her belt and having attended the Cambridge International Exam Marking Course, Ms Sim is able to teach her students answering techniques using keywords for qualitative questions and has also devised faster problem solving methods with reduced steps which helps students save time during exams.
Our Tuition Classes
Depending on the student’s needs, we provide: (a) private home tuition, (b) mini group tuition (2-5 students), (c) group tuition (up to 9 students) and (d) online tuition. In addition to the regular classes, we provide on demand topical lessons to cater to students who need help in selected H2 Chemistry topics on an ad-hoc basis.
Classes are conducted at two convenient locations (Kembangan and Beauty World). To maximize learning effectiveness, the number of students for group tuition is limited to 9. This enables Ms Sim to customize her approach to meet the unique needs of individual students and to have adequate focus on each student. See our class schedule.
