Lower Secondary Science Tuition

Lower Secondary Science Tuition at APM Tuition aims to develop students’ scientific knowledge and understanding through used of comprehensive curriculum materials. The programmes focus on developing higher-order thinking skills such as critical reasoning, logical deduction, and question analysis. On top of that, students are exposed to real-world problems that allow students to apply deep insights and appreciate the relevance of science in daily lives

With a small class size of 6 (max 8), we ensure that every student receive our dedicated attention during the Science lesson. We champion consistency and active learning in students, equipping them with the skills and wits to carve out their edge and eventually Ace the  examination.

Our lessons are customized to cater to different students’ needs. Students will receive tutorials aligned with their school syllabus to ensure a complete reinforcement of concepts and ample practice. Our notes, tutorials and practice papers are constantly updated with current questions to ensure students are equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge. Each set of notes and tutorials help students develop fundamental techniques to solve routine questions, apply complex concepts and hone critical reasoning skills for tackling nonroutine problems that include real-world contexts.

Practice tests and mock practice papers that mirror actual examination conditions help give students the practice and confidence needed to ace their examinations. Revision packages are provided to help students consolidate their knowledge, review the typical questions for each topic and gain awareness to avoid and correct common mistakes through error analysis practices.

Secondary 1 Science

In Secondary 1, students will acquire knowledge of new topics such as Cell Structure and Organisation, Elements, Compounds and Mixtures, and Light, and learn to apply their insights in the disciplines of General Science, Biology, Chemistry and Physics. The topics taught in primary school will be covered in greater depth while students master new and more complex concepts to develop in depth thinking skills. 

Secondary 2 Science

In Secondary 2, students will continue to develop their scientific knowledge and understanding, as well as skills and dispositions, through topics such as Transport System in Humans, Chemical Bonding and Current of Electricity. Students will continue to be trained in question analysis, answering techniques and higher-order thinking skills in the disciplines of Biology, Chemistry and Physics.

Both Secondary 1 and 2 Science courses are open to students taking both the O-Level and IP curricula.
