The Best Combined Chemistry Tuition in Singapore

Tutor City has impeccable Chemistry tutors to equip students for Secondary 2 Chemistry. With the expert guidance provided by our tutors, students will feel more confident in answering the questions posed to them during their examinations as they have a stronger grasp on their conceptual understanding.

Why do you need Combined Chemistry Tuition?

In secondary school, students are required to gain mastery of many difficult Chemistry concepts and topics, one of them being Organic Chemistry. Moreover, when transitioning from lower to upper secondary, students will experience greater depth in the concepts they are being taught. As such, many students feel overwhelmed as a result of this transition.

Getting a Chemistry tutor is important to help students build a strong foundation in Chemistry. Students need to do well for their science subjects in secondary school if they wish to continue pursuing science in Junior College. To tackle their Chemistry examinations, students need to know how to answer the exam questions posed to them and apply their knowledge.

The Cost of Combined Chemistry Tuition

The average hourly fees for Combined Chemistry tuition ranges from $35 per hour to $100 per hour, depending on the tutor's qualifications, experience, and the level to teach.

Hurdles Faced by Combined Chemistry Students

Technical terms in Chemistry

There are many technical terms in Chemistry which students must be acquainted with before sitting for their exams. Furthermore, writing chemical equations requires students to know the various abbreviations of the elements and compounds involved, as well as the products and byproducts of the chemical reactions taking place. Some students may face difficulties memorising and retaining such information and may require additional guidance. 

Time management during exams

In a Chemistry exam, there will be easier questions and more difficult questions. Many students face trouble managing their time during these exams as they may spend too much time being stuck on the difficult questions, not realising that answering the easier questions first could help them secure valuable marks which they need to get a passing grade. 

Unable to memorise and understand concepts well

Whether students like it or not, Chemistry is a discipline which involves a great deal of memorisation and recollection of certain aspects. Intertwined with memorisation is the understanding of how concepts work. Many students face difficulties with memorising and understanding concepts well enough to apply them to the examination questions.

Unable to perform calculations

Chemistry is a subject where some calculations are needed to determine the answers to some questions. As such, one difficulty students face is to combine their conceptual understanding with the mathematical aspect of Chemistry, resulting in confusion when calculations are involved. As such, students need to practice doing these calculations frequently. 

The Importance of Engaging a Combined Chemistry Tutor

Help students clarify doubts

One of the largest roles of a tutor is to help students clarify their doubts. At times, students may miss some of the concepts taught in school and there could be gaps in their knowledge which hinder them from understanding how to apply their content to the questions in the exam. As such, a tutor needs to fill in these gaps to show them the big picture of the subject. 

Help students achieve conceptual understanding

In Chemistry, there are many foreign and new concepts which students must grasp before their examinations. Furthermore, there is a combination of rote memorisation of certain key definitions coupled with the understanding of how these concepts work. A tutor will explain these concepts in a way which is easy for the student to digest and absorb. 

Helping students identify important elements in the exam questions

Many students feel lost when they face an exam paper as they do not know how to break the question and see it as the sum of its parts. A tutor will guide the student in identifying important elements in the exam question which give the student clues as to how to solve this question properly so that in the exam, students can tackle the question by themselves without fear. 

Planning their time and ensuring all topics are covered

A common hurdle of secondary school students is the lack of time to cover all the topics within a particular subject, especially when having to juggle it with many other subjects as well as a myriad of other commitments. As such, a tutor’s job is to plan out a student’s revision to ensure that all the topics the student needs to learn have been covered before their exams roll around.

Good Qualities of a Combined Chemistry Tutor

Having the requisite qualifications

Tutors must have the requisite qualifications to teach Chemistry to their students, as without these qualifications, they will not be able to guide the students well. As such, all Tutor City tutors have the appropriate qualifications to teach Chemistry to various levels of students with various abilities. Moreover, having experience helps tutors teach their students well. 


Tutors must have the dedication and commitment to teach students for all the slots they have agreed upon. It is important that the student sees the tutor regularly and works on the subject bit by bit, as failure to conduct regular practice and learning may have a negative impact on the student’s progress and by extension, their examination grades. 


It is important that tutors are patient when teaching their students, especially since Chemistry is a difficult subject which requires students to be able to memorise information as well as understand complex concepts. Not every student will be able to immediately grasp these concepts. In fact, some students need more time and patience to be able to attain master. 

Experience teaching students from the same level

It is important that tutors have experience teaching students from the same level, as they will be familiar with their syllabus and the common errors and challenges students may face. Tutors need to also be able to relate with students from a certain age group to motivate and inspire them to do better. As secondary school is a turbulent time for many students, the tutor could be a source of guidance and motivation for the students who are still trying to navigate life.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can combined science go to JC?

Combined Science is considered as one subject for L1R5 calculation, and students must meet the minimum score requirement set by the specific JC they wish to attend. Furthermore, JCs typically have subject prerequisites for certain courses, such as Higher 2 (H2) sciences.

What is the difference between pure chemistry and combined chemistry?

Pure Chemistry involves studying Chemistry as a separate discipline, while combined Science involves studying Biology, Physics, and Chemistry in a single subject. Studying Combined Science is far easier than studying for the Pure Sciences due to the depth of content. 

Should I take combined science or pure science?

Students with a keen aptitude and interest for Science subjects should take Pure Science. However, some students may have other talents elsewhere, either in the Humanities or in avenues outside of school. These students may want to opt for Combined Science instead.
