Singapore Focus Chemistry Launches New Website, Www.FocusChemistry.Com, Targeting A Level Chemistry Students

Singapore (PRWEB) October 30, 2013

In Singapore, most junior college (JC) students are stressed out in the face of their “A” Level exams. They only have two years to prepare for these landmark tests, and with many different subjects to juggle, A Level Chemistry is not usually one of their favourites.

Various tuition centres have sprung up across the island, featuring different marketing strategies, and low pricing to attract students. They usually offer tuition in math, physics, English, and also in chemistry. Most centres have class size of around 15 – 30 students, which is similar to the class sizes at school.

Mr Dion Khoo , a veteran private A Level Chemistry tutor, comes highly recommend by many students when they are looking for A Level H2 Chemistry Tuition. Having graduated from the National University of Singapore with a Bachelor and Masters degree in Chemical Engineering, Mr Khoo has been teaching A Level Chemistry since 1992. During his many years of teaching, he has seen countless types of questions from top schools as well as from the University of Cambridge.

Mr Khoo also has six years of work experience in the water industry for multi-national corporations such as Sony Electronics and General Electric (GE) Water and Process Technology. He also taught for seven years in a leading tertiary institution and has a passion for mentoring students, winning national competitions such as the Singapore Junior Water Prize (3rd Prize in 2010; 1st Prize in 2011) and Sembcorp Greenwave competition (2nd Prize in 2012).

Mr Khoo says, “With my application of concepts to industry or daily life, based on real world experience, you will see how the concepts of chemistry work in the world around us.”

Being in the unique position of having spent 20 years in the Chemistry industry - teaching, working and winning competitions, Mr Khoo has developed the “midas touch” when comes to helping students score Distinctions in the A Level Chemistry exam.

Countless JC students first came to Mr Khoo’s company, Focus Chemistry, hating the subject, had no clue about how to solve the exam questions, and had scored an “F” in their previous exams. Mere months later, after Mr Khoo’s JC Chemistry tuition, they almost all scored Distinctions in their final examination.

Scott Wong from Hwa Chong Institution (HCI) commented that, “Mr Dion has been an exceptional H2 chemistry tutor during my JC second year, helping me improve from an E grade to an A in the final A levels and prelims!

Most importantly, he emphasizes the development of an understanding of chemistry, and not just memorizing formulas symbol for symbol.

I appreciate chemistry much more since being under Dion’s engaging tutelage and the final A grade only testifies to that.”

Another student, Xin Rui, from Nanyang Junior College, shares that ever since joining Focus Chemistry tuition, Mr Khoo has helped her bridge the gap in her knowledge of chemistry. “He constantly ensures that we do not merely memorise, but foster a deep understanding as well.

My grades steadily improved from a D in the mid year exams and prelims to an A in the A levels eventually. Thank you Mr Khoo!”

Focus Chemistry offers a progressive class of around 5 – 8 students for each lesson, with a maximum capacity of only 10 students per class. The lessons are conducted in the central part of Singapore and are easily accessible for students. As an added bonus, students can also choose private H2 chemistry tuition where Mr Khoo can meet students at place of their choice.
