When is this lesson & Who is it for?
Date: 20 March 2019 (Wednesday) This is during March school holidays
For: 2019 JC2 H2 Chemistry committed students who are aiming to achieve A or B grade for A-Levels and are willing to prioritise their time to learn with an open mind.
What is covered during the 2 hours lesson?
ISOMERISM in Organic Chemistry
- Constitutional (Structural) isomerism
- Geometric (cis-trans) isomerism in alkenes and ring structures, due to restricted rotation
- Optical isomerism (Enantiomerism) in chiral molecules
- Deduce whether a given molecule is chiral based on presence or absence of chiral centres and/or a plane of symmetry
- Deduce the possible isomers for an organic molecule of known molecular formula
- Deduce the possible isomers for an organic molecule after the following reactions: Free Radical Substitution (in Alkanes), Electrophilic Addition (in Alkenes), Electrophilic Substitution (in Arenes), Elimination (in Halogen Derivatives), Nucleophilic Substitution (in Halogen Derivatives)
Who is the trainer for this lesson?
Sean is probably
- the only Chemistry specialist since 1999 who is
- the invited book author for BOTH the O-Level Pure Chemistry and A-Level H2 Chemistry Ten Year Series.
This also means you can have direct access to him for discussion on his approach in solving each and every single question from the Ten Year Series.
He is also the rare few Chemistry tutors who is familiar with BOTH the O-Level and A-Level syllabus which is the reason why IP Chemistry students benefit greatly from his Chemistry tuition classes.
Most school teachers and private tutors only know either the O-Level or the A-Level Chemistry syllabus. For Sean, his experience and mastery of both the syllabuses allow him to connect the basic concepts in GCE O-Level Pure Chemistry and the advanced concepts in GCE A-Level H2 Chemistry together. This allows students to understand the essential concepts thoroughly, just like a crystal ball in their hand.
Being a certified Neuro-Linguistic Practitioner (NLP), Sean communicates effectively to his students and changes the students’ perception towards Chemistry; from initially dreading the subject to gradually finding more interest. He believes his NLP skills play a major role in unlocking the potential in his students to enjoy learning and scoring in Chemistry.
Many who came to us are low in confidence for Chemistry and Sean always have his way to encourage and motivate them to relearn Chemistry and do their very best. About 70% of our students are recommended to us, from our ex students and their parents, from private tutors and school teachers. This differentiates him from Chemistry teachers and other Chemistry tutors.
Why should you attend this lesson?
- Feel more confident when you are learning the rest of the Organic Chemistry topics since the concepts discussed are inter-linked.
- Know what the lecturers are talking about when they flash their slides in lectures.
- Will be able to solve challenging application questions when your foundation is firm.
- Be more prepared to score in GCE A-Level H2 Chemistry Exam as well as JC Exam since Organic Chemistry has 40% weighting!
Since this lesson worth $140 is free (when there is at least 20 sign-ups by 17 March 2019), you have everything to gain and nothing to lose! Reserve you and your friend's seats today!
“Sean’s teaching was really good and clear. He clarified some misconceptions I had on the topic. I would recommend my friends to the next workshop.”
Amalyn Leong, River Valley High School
“Sean’s teaching was engaging and I am able to understand the concept he was teaching. I am able to quickly identify existence of stereoisomers and the presence of meso-compound. I would recommend to my friends to the next workshop.”
Eric Chan Jun Xiang, Eunoia Junior College
“Sean’s teaching was engaging and fun and I am clearer on types of isomers right now. The style of teaching is engaging and showed me new ways to view Chemistry questions.”
Chan Kit Ho, Dunman High School
“Sean’s teaching was good as he stresses on the fundamental concepts which are actually important in order to do questions. I have learnt about meso compound and enantiomerism. I would recommend my friends to the next workshop.”
Cindy Liow, Eunoia Junior College
“Sean is a passionate and effective teacher. He is able to communicate well with students and clearly teach students the analysis needed for questions while making it lively and interactive. I managed to apply the content that we went through in the first hour of the lessons to complete the questions. I will highly recommend everyone taking H2 Chemistry to go for the workshop.”
Griffith Goh, St Andrew Junior College
“The lesson was engaging and useful just like the last time I went. I find the tips very useful and managed to understand better with the concise notes and straightforward explanation. I would definitely recommend my friends to attend.”
Haajar Bte Arman, Eunoia Junior College
“I found his teaching very engaging as he always tries to ask us questions and crack jokes. I looked at Chemistry in a very different way after his lesson. I would recommend my friends to attend the workshop.”
Kumaraguru, St Andrew Junior College
“I find that Sean is really engaging and it really spurs me to think on how to solve the questions. From the workshop, I learnt more about the ways on finding out how many isomerisms there are of a compound. I would definitely recommend to my friends to join the next workshop.”
Lee Min Han, Dunman High School
“Thank you Winners for holding this free class! I really learnt a lot from it. Sean was an amazing and engaging teacher. This lesson improved my basics on isomers which I find very important. I would definitely recommend my friends to the next one.”
Mohamed Ammar Mohamed Yusri, Eunoia Junior College
“The lesson is clear and concise, easy to understand. I have learnt how to tackle question. Yes! I will recommend to my friends.”
Ong Liyi, Eunoia Junior College
“I found Sean’s teaching easy to understand and I have learnt how to answer more challenging questions. I would recommend my friends to the next workshop.”
Tan Wei Mei, Dunman High School
