Miracle Learning Centre is a specialist for Science and Mathematics.
Some parents ask us ,”My son has read the whole chemistry textbook and understood everything. Why does he still not do well for Chemistry?”
The answer is very simple. Learning ‘O’ level and IP Chemistry is not just about reading the textbook. The danger is when the student thinks he has understood but in actual fact did not fully understand the chemistry concept. He is doing passive learning not active learning.
You need to understand the underlying chemistry concepts so that you can apply it to ALL types of questions. These are the fundamentals of Chemistry tuition concepts.

All of our Chemistry Tuition teachers are NIE trained and have taught in schools for many years before. Our chemistry tuition teachers explain concepts very clearly and you can definitely understand what you do not understand or missed out in school. The chemistry tuition teachers are friendly and highly approachable. No Chemistry tuition questions will go unanswered. We take care of all the chemistry tuition students and make sure no one is left out.
There are 3 parts to learning Chemistry:
|Understand the concepts of the chapter
||Memorize the facts till you are 100% sure
||Do practice questions to
ensure you have learnt the chapter well
The study of Chemistry is not based on reading the textbook alone. Some students read the Chemistry textbook, understand what was explained but still do not perform well for the exams. There could be several reasons. By reading alone, you are not able to tell how much you know or understand.
First of all, you need to know the basic facts for every chapter very well. Very well means you need to know it 100%, not “probably ok”. If you are not sure, you probably have not FULLY grasped the concepts and facts of that chapter.
Let us try out on a simple topic
Take qualitative analysis for example, can you answer these questions confidently at anytime(mid Sec 3, start Sec 4 and end Sec 4)?
1) How do you test for nitrate ions?
2) What reagents do you need to test for zinc ions? What will you observe?
3) What is the name of the white precipitate formed when carbon dioxide is bubbled into limewater?
If you continue adding more carbon dioxide into the above, what happens and why?
4) What is the colour of copper(II) oxide?
5) What is the colour of zinc oxide?
