Chemistry tuition in Singapore is in great demand which is due to its importance in making a promising career. Many parents have felt the need of keeping a chemistry teacher for their child.
The characteristics of a good chemistry teacher
A good chemistry teacher should have a sound knowledge of the subject and should preferably have a Bachelors or Master’s degree in Chemistry. He should be clear in explaining the concepts of the subject.
The chemistry teacher should also be experienced in teaching the A and O levels of chemistry. He should ideally be proficient enough to download the knowledge to his students. If you get a teacher who is certified from NIE then it would be a good option or you.
The chemistry tutor should have good communication skills along with patience. He is expected to keep his cool while teaching the students and should not lose his temper every now and then.
The various levels at which chemistry is taught in Singapore are
* Secondary Chemistry and the IGCSE chemistry
* A level chemistry which consists of H1, H2 and H3 chemistry.
* IB chemistry which is good as it is accepted all over the world.
* Tertiary level chemistry which is related to Polytechnic and is taught at the University level.
Chemistry tutors in Singapore
Most of the qualified tutors for Chemistry in Singapore have a Bachelor’s degree in chemistry which is supposed to be the minimum required qualification to become a tutor.
It is normally seen in Singapore than on an average a student takes home tuitions. It is very common in Singapore for the students to take tuitions and for this Singapore is sometimes referred as “Tuition Nation”.
The concept of home tuition is increasing day by day in Singapore at a very rapid rate.

These are some of the facts about the home tuitions in Singapore which helps a great deal in understanding the education pattern.

When the environmental conditions are right, blue-green algae (which are actually blue-green bacteria) can blossom into harmful algal blooms. These blooms can release all sorts of deadly poisons into the environment. In this episode, SOC’s Sophia Cai explains how human health could be at risk, with help from SOC’s structure-drawing extraordinaire, Lauren Wolf.
