Master O-Level Organic Chemistry in 2 Days!

I am Sean Chua, Master Trainer for Chemistry in Winners Education. Many students and parents also know me as the Ten Years Series author for O-Level & A-Level Chemistry.

Do you know there are less than 3 months to the O-Level Pure Chemistry Paper 2?

What this means is ‘Are you ready in your basic Chemistry concepts and application skills to score confidently in this year O-Level Chemistry examinations?’

I have been conducting the Organic Chemistry Topical Workshop since 2008 to help struggling students to

  • Summarize large junk of information into digestible bits
  • Understand this major topic clearly
  • Solve data-based application questions, guaranteed to be tested in examinations
  • Reduce memory work to a minimum
  • Score as high as possible in this heavy weighting topic!

Some of you might wonder about the effectiveness of this workshop since it is so near to O-Levels!

This is precisely the reason why I am still conducting this workshop during this period as most schools teach Organic Chemistry as the last topic in a rush rush manner and most students are unable to understand, find it confusing.

Are you one of them?

Since Organic Chemistry consists of many small subsections, many students are overwhelmed with the huge amount of content and thus lose confidence in their Chemistry.

“She can understand your lesson very well and for the first time, she says she likes Chemistry. Thank you for rekindling her interest in Chemistry. She has also expressed her interest in the weekly class.”

  5. Alkanes
  6. Alkenes
  7. Alcohols
  8. Carboxylic Acids
  9. Esters
  10. Macromolecules
  11. Application Questions

O-Level Combine Science (Chemistry) 13 Weeks Revision Programme

With just only 13 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 13 weeks effectively and efficiently. Yes, we are looking at 13 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.”

Most Effective Way of Learning

“Monsters exist, but they are too few in number to be truly dangerous. More dangerous are the common men, the functionaries ready to believe and to act without asking questions” ~ Primo Levi

O and A Levels Chemistry & Maths - Keep Asking

The best way to learn in life (not just in schools) is to ASK QUESTIONS. Not just attend lectures & classes and copy down every single English words by the lecturers/teachers. Students need to listen attentively and ask questions when in doubt.

At Winners, we practice this method of educating our students and always encourage them to “Clarify Whenever in Doubt”, that “Every Question is a Good Question” & “there’s Always Something Useful to Learn”.

We also encourage our students to start asking questions in their schools for every subjects cos this is the only effective way of learning.

Personally, we have seen so many students who improved from a F9/E8/D7 grades to A1/A2/B3 grades for Chemistry & Maths in very very short period of between 2-6 months. It is POSSIBLE for students to truly Unleash Their Potential, if they start to ASK.

For both O-Levels (as well as IGCSE) and A-Levels (including IB & IP), we provide platforms for our students such as 1) email support 2) SMS support, in order for them to clarify their doubts ASAP. Frankly, it’s really hardwork on our side but we believe it’s worth it cos it will build their confidence & momentum in clarifying doubts.

In the picture, it’s our current Sec 4 student clarifying her doubt for a Chemistry concept/question via WhatsApp messaging. She has improved so much in Sec 3 last year and we are sure she will do well for O-Level this year, if she continue to stay consistent and clarify her doubts asap. Whoosh!

I believe many of our graduate students (some in university while others already started their working career) will appreciate this very important learning tool in life.

If you happen to read this post, do remember: KEEP ASKING!

PS: Feel free to share this post with any students (including adults) who is really serious about learning effectively.

Enjoy the learning journey everyone!
