Chemistry is a highly specialized science focusing on the study of matter. People are attracted to the subject due to its ability to aggregate and simplify. It is the science of pattern recognition. It covers everything from the gastronomic wonders of molecular gourmet cooking to the lifesaving drugs of our modern times. There are hundreds of chemical reactions to learn in IB Chemistry alone but their mechanisms are few, simple and elegant. Once these are mastered, the student is able to understand advance material with ease and become capable of tackling even the most difficult problems.
IB Chemistry is an introductory high school course which covers the basics of Chemistry in a fun and enlightening manner. Focus is placed on teaching students how to identify common links between different types of chemical reactions. Chemistry, like all other science subjects, can illustrate how Theory of Knowledge is applied and used in real life through case studies. IB Chemistry goes to great lengths to make these links clear.
IB Chemistry can be undertaken at both SL (Standard level) and HL (Higher level). According to IB Chemistry guide, students with no previous exposure to a subject should be able to handle the subject at Standard level but will find it difficult to adjust if they take Higher Level.
At student’s Inn, we prepare students for examination regardless of their previous exposure. Through a regime of intensive coaching and practice through propriety material, we are able to not only bring about improvements in grades but also develop interest in the subject. IB Tuition in Singapore is not a very competitive business. Due to the practical nature of IB Chemistry, the teacher not only needs a thorough understanding of the subject but also of the IB Syllabus. The syllabus structure is unique and appropriate training for tutoring IB syllabus is required to properly teach the subject.
Student’s Inn’s approach to teaching IB Chemistry is simple. Our tutors go over the basic concepts and illustrate them through examples to enhance understanding of the subject. During tuition, important and more frequently tested ideas are highlighted and the types of questions generally asked are practiced. Focus is placed on appropriate physics terminology and ways of tackling different types of questions. After the session, a good mix of questions from IB question banks and our own material is given to the students to crystallize the concepts and to prepare them for their IB exams. The concepts are then revised in later classes and if anything is found wanting in student’s understanding, the entire process is repeated. The lesson is conducted in a fun and engaging manner to increase aptitude and interest in the subject.
We hold both regular and ad hoc sessions. Students have the choice of joining group classes to make learning a group experience or opting for an individual lesson to get more focused attention. We also help our students with Group 4 project and Chemistry lab experiments.
So, in a nutshell, Student’s Inn aims to:
- Develop an understanding of essential concepts
- Enhance the ability to approach problems in a disciplined and appropriate manner
- Ingrain time management skills to ensure appropriate revision before the exams
- Develop lifelong interest in Chemistry which makes learning fun and easy
Students are provided with:
- Concise but comprehensive notes for the core as well as the options
- Ample practice questions to enhance learning
- Access to comprehensive support system and resources
