What is chemistry
Chemistry is a physical science that does not involve living things. You might think that chemistry only involves lab tests, mixing substances or food additives. In fact, the chemistry field involved everything around us.

|Review 1||Ms Chang was very patient and reliable! |
My son’s H2 chem results went from U to A because of her.
Ms Chang is truly a miracle worker.
I would recommend her to all my family and friends!By Irene Tan
|Review 2||I wouldn’t be able to get an A for H2 chem without Ms Chang. I’m now reading Law in Cambridge and my younger brother (also greatly helped by Ms Chang) is studying Medicine at Oxford. Thank you, Ms Chang. |
By Eric Low
|Review 3||I highly recommend Ms Chang. She is deeply committed, devoted and always encouraging. |

Main branches of chemistry
Analytical chemistry, as the name suggests, it involves analysing the chemicals. This includes qualitative methods such as observing changes in colour and quantitative methods such as examining the exact wavelengths of light that a chemical absorbed that resulted in a colour change.
Biochemistry, as the name suggests, is linked to biology. Biochemistry is the use of chemistry techniques to understand how biological systems work at a chemical level. With biochemistry, researchers are able to develop cures and vaccines for many diseases.
Inorganic chemistry is the study of chemical compounds in non-living things such as metals and minerals. Inorganic chemistry is used to create a variety of products such as paints, fertilisers and sunblocks.
Organic chemistry deals with chemical compounds that contain carbon. Organic chemistry is used in many applications such as biotechnology, the petroleum industry, plastics and pharmaceuticals.
Physical chemistry involves physics concepts to understand how chemistry works. Physical chemists use molecules and atoms to derive conclusions about the way chemical reactions work.
What do chemists do
Chemists can work in a variety of fields, which includes but not limited to quality control, manufacturing, environmental protection, research and development, law and consulting. They can work at universities, in the private industry or for the government.
Why learn chemistry
Learning chemistry is useful for everyone in everyday life. Knowing little chemistry can help you understand the labels of the products you are buying.
Is chemistry easy to learn
For most students, chemistry is a challenging subject that they struggle with among the three sciences – chemistry, physics, biology. The main reason students struggle with chemistry is because of its mathematics components. Whether it is balancing chemical equations or calculating the number of moles, you will still have to deal with mathematics in chemistry.
Difference between H1 and H2 chemistry
H1 chemistry covers significantly less content and has a shorter syllabus as compared to its H2 counterpart. Some of the H2 chemistry topics that are excluded in H1 chemistry includes Electrochemistry, solubility equilibria, transition elements. The depth of the topics covered in H1 chemistry is also lesser than those of H2 chemistry.
H3 chemistry is only accessible to students who have excelled in their studies in their first year of junior college. The purpose of H3 chemistry is to specifically develop the top 10 to 15% of the cohort. H3 chemistry does not have a fixed syllabus to follow. Instead, students are able to pick from a variety of programmes. These programmes include either in-depth research or university undergrad modules.
Transitioning from combined science to JC chemistry
If you are a combined science student in secondary school, you will surely know there is a difference in the topics covered and the depth of the topics between combined science chemistry and pure chemistry. This is similar to the difference between H1 and H2 chemistry. For students who have taken pure chemistry, they do have a slight head start than their combined science chemistry peers as the Ordinary level syllabus have covered the basics for topics such as electrolysis, metallic bonding and kinetics and structures of covalent compounds.
However, all other topics are relatively new for everyone so students still begin at the same point in the marathon. Ultimately, if you are hardworking and passionate about chemistry, you will still score well in chemistry.
Should I enrol my child for chemistry tuition?
Chemistry tuitions are no longer just for the weaker students who are struggling in school. Now, even the top-performing students in the cohort attend chemistry tuitions. Sometimes, the tutors in chemistry tuition centres maybe even better than school teachers because the tutors are able to give more attention and focus on the weaker students in class.
Benefits of chemistry tuition
Additional notes and resources
Most chemistry tuition centres provide in-depth notes for each chemistry topic in the syllabus which breakdown the topics into bitesize chunks for the students. The additional resources provided by tuition centres may include additional practice questions, misconceptions about certain topics, and tips and tricks to ace chemistry examinations.
A class in tuition centres are generally smaller in sizes, about 20 to 25 students in a class compared to the 40 students in a class in school. With lesser students, the tutor will be able to better focus his or her attention on weaker students and giving them much needed guidance and assistance.
Tuition centres are able to tailor their teaching speed and materials according to the students in their centres, which are beneficial for the student’s learning.
Interaction with students from other schools
In tuition centres, students are able to interact with their peers from other schools and have a better gauge of their competition when it comes to the Advanced level examinations. With students from other schools, tuition centres will be able to gather more resources and information which will better cater to students.
Tuition centres may conduct crash courses for students which are concise and often serve as a quick revision for last-minute revisions and a consolidation of content taught during the semester or term.
How to choose a chemistry tuition
The cost per class (usually 2-hour classes) or per month (4 classes) is one of the most important factors to consider between each tuition centres, especially if you are on a budget. The reputation of tuition centres also affects the price they charge per class.
Availability and accessibility
There is no point spending an extra hour or so travelling back and forth from the tuition centre and your home. The extra time and energy can be spent on revision or resting after lessons. Unless you don’t mind travelling for tuition classes after a long day at school, the availability and accessibility of the tuition centre is a rather important factor to consider.
If a tuition centre has stunning testimonials from past students, it would be ideal to enrol your child to that centre as well because the chances of your child achieving high scores are higher compared to tuition centres that do not have stunning testimonials. However, ultimately, not every teaching style in tuition centres will work out for your child, so it may take a few tuition centres to find the right fit.
