O-Level Combine Science (Chemistry) 14 Weeks Revision Programme


 To register, click on http://www.WinnersEducation.com/combine-sci-revision

With just only 14 weeks away GCE O-Level examinations, is your child prepared sufficiently to score the distinction they want or is your child still at a lost of where to start, how to start … ?

Doing the right things during this crucial period will determine the outcome of your child’s results next year.

He can choose to read up the concepts on his own and give up halfway when challenges pop up or choose to learn from an experienced teacher who has proven track record in helping thousands of students to score the results they truly deserve. Your child saves time by learning nuggets of wisdom within a short period of time and achieves Maximum Results in Minimum Time.

If he’s motivated, he can clarify all doubts with his school teacher or even private tutor. If he has the discipline, he can also prepare himself by revising topic by topic. However, if he lacks the motivation, drive and discipline, he needs a systematic approach to utilise the remaining 14 weeks effectively and efficiently. Yes, we are looking at 14 weekends before the O-Levels.

We are only taking in committed students and parents who are willing to do whatever it takes to learn, apply and score. It can be showing up for class after a long day in school, sacrificing TV time, fetching your child after end of class, rescheduling of appointments, relearning of concepts …

All because we know, deep inside us, your child has so much potential and he deserves much better…

If you and your child are willing to create the results they want, join us!

“I have enjoyed the combined science chemistry program taught by Sean.
Before joining this program, my perspective towards chemistry was to just blindly memorizing the chemistry notes without any understanding at all. But after joining this programme, I had befitted a lot, having gained a deeper understanding on every chemistry concepts. Sean kept on motivating us to do well in our studies. Last but not least, Sean, thank you very much for all the effort and time you had put in for us.”

2014 GCE O-Level June Intensive Revision (Topical) Workshops


Every June Holidays, we have a committed group of students that come to our June Holidays Intensive Revision (Topical) Workshops to master their Chemistry concepts. These students (and their parents) realised that June Holidays is perhaps the LAST CHANCE for them to really master Chemistry – and they continue to do well for their GCE O-Level Examinations in less than 5 months time!

[Average grade for our O-Level Pure Chemistry students is A2 Distinction for 2013 batch. Many came to us with D,E and F grades]

For the 7th consecutive years running, this June Holidays, we are going to reveal and expose this powerful, effective and fun set of strategies and show your child how he can instantly apply these techniques to boost, enhance and clarify his understanding in solving examination questions.

“My results improved from E8 to A1 for my O Level Chemistry in just 4 months! Thanks for making Chemistry so interesting and easy to understand! You really Inspired Me! Strongly recommend you to those who need help in Chemistry!”
Shawn, Yuhua Secondary School, E8 (Sec 4 Mid-Year) to A1 (O Level)

Students, parents and even school teachers were often shocked … and then amazed at extremely effective yet rarely taught examination strategies that equip, guide and even motivate under-performing students to improve their understanding whenever they are applied…

Our set of ‘Secrets’ have allowed students to Achieve More Than 6 Grades Jump in their O-Levels Examinations and receive priority invitation to enroll into their desired JC/Poly within a very Short Period of Time

We welcome your child to join us in this annual event and to Achieve More Distinctions in Less Time, even if he has not been passing his Chemistry examinations.

Chemistry Revision Class 2010

This June Holidays, i will be personally coaching a committed group of students on the following Key Essential Chemistry topics:

CM1 : Chemical Bonding
CM2A : Acids, Bases & Preparation of Salts
CM2B : Qualitative Analysis (QA)
CM3 : Mole Calculations
CM4 : Redox & Electrolysis
CM5 : Organic Chemistry

The Topical Revision Workshops are highly participative and covers the following key areas:

  • Comprehensive 100% coverage of each topics
  • Build up a strong Foundation of Essential Concepts
  • Learn and apply strategies on Real examination questions
  • Give examiners the Keywords that they are looking for to give you Full Marks
  • Understand the Common Mistakes made by many students and how to Avoid it

Small class size. Limited seats left!

PS: 50% of the seats have already been taken up by students for key workshops

“I feel that the O-Level Chemistry lessons have been very effective and has helped to grasp the basics of Chemistry and letting me realise that it is actually quite easy and I hope that this programme will be carried on for future years. I also find Mr Chua an effective and dedicated teacher, even staying back after class to help me.”
Ethan Lim, C6 to A1 (in 3 months), St Joseph Institution

“We should be the ones who should thank you – ever since she started going for your Intensive Revision, Nadea has been doing well in Chemistry. You’re truly an inspiration to your students!”
Sharen Aslam, Mother of Nadea Merchant, Tanjong Katong Girls’ School (TKGS)

Results don’t lie! They have all improved! Is your child ready to unleash his potential?

PS: We can issue a Letter of Attendance to show that your child is attending our intensive workshops, so that he can be excused from school activities.

O-Level Chemistry: Tips on Chemical Bonding


Today, i would like to share with you a post that i made on our Facebook Fan Page

Tips for GCE O-Level Chemistry: CHEMICAL BONDING

photo

Many students neglect this very fundamental yet important topic in Secondary 3 when they learn Chemistry from their school teachers. They never realised that mastery of this topic would have helped them to truly understand they key concepts in most follow up topics in Secondary 3 and 4 such as:

1) Acids & Bases
2) Preparation of Salts
3) Mole Calculations
4) Qualitative Analysis (Identification of Ions)
5) Periodic Table & Group Trends
6) Metals & Reactivity Series
7) Energy Changes
8) Redox & Electrolysis
9) Organic Chemistry

etc…. there are so many topics that requires students to have a strong foundation of Chemical Bondings that it will take a lot of typings for me to list them down one-by-one.

However, many do not realise the importance of this topic and take it very lightly. They would tell you that they are pretty good with this topic but whenever you analyse their exam papers, you will realise that they don’t really know the topic well. They often USE THE WRONG KEYWORDS or have a LACK OF KEYWORDS such that their teacher have no choice but to minus marks.

Some also do not understand the difference between “TYPES OF BONDING” and “TYPES OF STRUCTURES”

[Check out the Flow Chart above that i always use to remind my Chemistry students]

Do note that whenever the question ask for “PROPERTIES” of a substance, we are really asking you to link the physical properties of a substance to the “TYPES OF STRUCTURES” and NOT “Types of Bonds”. It is always a Common Mistake!

Example:
Explain why carbon dioxide is a gas at room temperature and pressure.

Many students would mention the following:

“The covalent bonds in the carbon dioxide molecule is weak and thus requires small amount of energy to overcome it.” which is WRONG! It only shows the examiner that you are weak in your concepts.

Suggested Answer:

“Weak intermolecular forces of attraction exists between the small covalent molecules of carbon dioxide. Small amount of energy is required to overcome it.” This is so much better, with the correct keywords all given to the examiner.

Many students are not aware that there are Two Types of Bonds/Forces when it comes to carbon dioxide which is a SIMPLE MOLECULAR STRUCTURE, which are:

1) Strong Covalent Bonds between the atoms WITHIN the small molecules

2) Weak Intermolecular Forces of Attraction BETWEEN the small molecules

Are you one of them? Time to be aware……

P.S. Feel free to “share” this post with anyone who might benefit from it.

Note:
For those that need help to sort out this essential topic quickly and confidently, i have good news for you.

I will be conducting a 1-Day Chemical Bonding Intensive Revision Workshop on Wednesday, 4th June during the School Holiday. I will be teaching a committed group of students to truly appreciate the Key Essential Concepts and the Keywords associated with it.
