About the Tutor

tutor

Hello! I'm Mr. Maverick Puah, the founder of Chemistry Guru!

I graduated from NUS with an Honours (2nd Upper Class) Degree in Chemistry, was in Dean's List for 3 consecutive years, and was a PSC Scholar (Teaching). I have years of teaching and lecturing experience in a Junior College, and several more years in private tuition. Please click here to see proof of my qualification.

My passion for teaching Chemistry spurred me on to start Chemistry Guru in 2010, and I have been teaching hundreds of students and Making Chemistry Simpler for them ever since! My students have consistently achieved 70-80% Distinction in A Levels for H2 Chemistry.

My lessons are structured and well-paced. Each topic will be taught in detail and summaries and practice questions will be provided. I will also go through the solutions to questions and highlight the important concepts and methods to writing out clear and concise answers.

I will also share common mistakes that are usually made so that students would be able to avoid them. Last but not least, secrets to how teachers set and mark exam questions will be revealed so students would be more prepared to get that distinction for H2 Chemistry!

I have also created a YouTube Channel - H2 Chem Hacks to share my Chemistry knowledge in short, concise videos and break down H2 Chemistry into easy, digestible chunks. Students can subscribe to my YouTube Channel and watch these video lessons for free. Students can also view the videos on my Facebook Page by clicking here.

Payment by cash or cheque only, and cheque is preferred. For cheque please make it payable to CHEMISTRY GURU. Please note that refund of fees is strictly not allowed. No additional administrative or material fees is required.

A. You can call or sms me to reserve a slot for the class you are interested in. The fees payable for the Trial Lesson are $80. Payment by cash or cheque payable to CHEMISTRY GURU.

A. Students have to arrange for makeup lesson with me, subjected to availability, in the same week. No refund of fees is allowed if students are unable to attend makeup, but fees in the following month will be prorated.

Q. How is a typical lesson like?

A. I will go through chemistry concepts, summarise the main points of each topic, let students practise questions and teach the students how to cultivate good studying habits. Short notes, summaries, and questions will be given to students. I will also give insights on how exam questions are set and how examiners mark questions, so the students will learn to keep answers accurate and concise. 

Q. Do you follow a lesson schedule according to a specific JC? 

A. My students are from various JCs hence the schedule would not follow any college in particular. The sequence of topics that I am covering is based on my experience and would prepare students well for their exams. Students should adopt the following mentality when attending classes: if the topic is already taught in your school, then treat it as a revision; if the topic is not yet taught, then treat it as an opportunity to learn it first. Either way, you have additional practice on the topic and would do you good.
