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.
