Praises From Our Students
The Powerpoint Slides Coupled With Revision Notes Help Visual Learners Understand The Subject Better, Nicholas, YJC: "The Revision Practices And Tests Get More Challenging So That We Are Prepared For Examinations!"
The lessons are organised and made in such a way that it is easy for us to understand. The notes given are summarised with all the important points in the topics such that it is not wordy and convenient for us to read thru and revise it. The revision practices and tests get progressively more challenging so that we are prepared for class tests and examinations.
The use of the powerpoint slides coupled with our revision notes help visual learners understand the subject much better. Last but not least, Mr Aw is a very patient teacher and never fails to motivate his students, two very important traits a student looks for in a teacher.
U To A Grade In 6 Months, Megha, SAJC: "When I Didn’t Believe In Myself, He Did. When I Didn’t Think I Could Improve, He Made Sure I Believed I Could!"
Mr Aw was one of the best or perhaps the best tutors I have ever had in my academic life. Not only was he patient with his teaching methods, he incorporated very innovative, study friendly methods to effectively drill me with the crucial chemistry concepts.
He always went that extra mile to create mindmaps, combine notes from all different schools and personalize them to fit the student’s learning style and even spare that extra 30 mins or one hour in order to ensure that the lesson reached its completion. Apart from the academic aspect, he was one of the most inspiring and encouraging tutors I have ever had.
When I didn’t believe in myself, he did. When I didn’t think I could improve, he made sure I believed I could. He was really the sort of teacher that didn’t just make sure you completed assignments on time but also instilled within me the motivation to excel.
Moreover, he was always there no matter what time, to help me in clarifying my doubts be it lesson time or via text. He was truly devoted to teaching chemistry. I am so glad that I was blessed with a tutor like Mr Aw.
During Lesson, He Would Go Through Topics That I Am Weak At And Find Ways To Help Me Grasp The Concept, Issac, Kranji Sec: "He Uses Interactive Ways To Teach By Giving Examples And Using Videos To Help Me Get A Clearer Picture!"
For the past few years, Mr Aw has taught me for the subjects physics, Maths and chemistry. I have improved greatly for all my subjects as he makes sure I understand the topics fully, he also makes the topic easy to understand by making his own concise notes.
I have improved from his lessons as I was struggling with physics and mathematics during lower Sec. After 2-3 years of his guidance I was able to get A1 for both my mathematics and combined science (phy,chem). During lesson, he would go through topics that I am weak at and find ways to help me grasp the concept, he uses interactive ways to teach by giving examples and using videos to help me get a clearer picture.
He helped me in math by teaching me how to make my own notes which is specifically so I could understand it. He prepares test papers to check if I fully understood the concept. He is friendly and encouraging which motivates me to study. He also explains things in detail so as to make the topic understandable and managable.
He makes lessons interesting and genuinely cares for his students. Outside lessons, I can approach him with any queries or doubts I have with my work and he would advice me accordingly.
C5 To A1 In O Level, Isabel Joy Kua, TKGS: "Classes With Him Was Always Extremely Fun And Enjoyable As Well As Extremely Enriching!"
Since Secondary Three my Chemistry was never too good. I failed Chemistry twice in Sec Three(2015) and got C5 for the other two exams. Last year(2016), I decided to join two of my other friends for Mr Aw’s group Chemistry tuition after getting a C5 for my CA1.
Joining this tuition was a wonderful decision as classes with Mr Aw was always extremely fun and enjoyable as well as extremely enriching. I always left class with more understanding of the Chemistry concepts and answers to my questions. Soon enough, my chemistry grades improved to a B4 for Mid Years, a B3 for Prelims and then an A1 for O Levels.
Mr Aw is a very patient tutor, never failing to answer our countless questions as well as encourage us when we didn’t do well for tests. His positive spirit motivates us to pick ourselves up after each failure and to go forward toward success. I would definitely recommend Mr Aw as a chemistry tutor!

A Grade In O Level, Sally, TKGS: "Provides Us With Useful Resources Such As Concise Notes, Laminated Periodic Table With Equations And Other Contents!"
Mr Aw is a very dedicated teacher who is concerned about his students’ progress and adopts an effective learning system during his lessons. This includes being technologically savvy, using a monitor which facilitates our learning as we students are able to see the content on the screen easily as opposed to using a whiteboard, which may be time consuming.
His lessons are interesting and engaging as he tries his best to simplify chemistry concepts that are difficult to understand for better understanding and show us videos helpful to our learning when necessary such as videos on crystallization so as to let us visualize and understand the process and steps to take instead of just blindly memorizing from textbooks, where the content takes a longer time to sink into our heads.
Mr Aw also provides us with useful resources such as concised notes and a laminated periodic table with equations and other content compiled on a single page which allows us to refer to them and study more efficiently especially when exams are near.
Apart from adopting a positive attitude and encouraging us to never give up, the regular practices of worksheets and provision of challenging questions from other school’s papers also enabled me to maintain a consistent grade of A1 throughout my secondary 4 year.
He is also one of the most patient teachers I’ve ever had and encourages us to ask questions whenever in doubt even through platforms such as Whatsapp, and strives to reply us as quickly as possible with detailed explanations.
I definitely owe my great improvement in Chemistry to Mr Aw as he was the teacher who spurred my interest in Chemistry and made me enjoy learning the subject.

He has always given in his best to source for resources for students, even for subjects that he does not teach and tailors to every students’ individual needs by planning the lessons to cater to their weaknesses.
During the A level revision period, he was just a phone call away whenever I needed help with my chemistry. Furthermore, his notes are concise and succinct, such that students do not have to worry about having difficulty understanding them and they are the best resources to help you to recap your fundamentals just before the A level examinations.
My grades have improved from a U to a B in A levels, and this is owing to his dedication and patience in guiding me. Mr Aw has definitely been a great help to me in this tough journey and my improvements would not have been possible without him.
