Chemistry has been my weakest subject since secondary school hence I decided to engage a tutor in J1. Mr Jacky Wong is a patient tutor that is willing to ensure that his students truly understand the concepts and not just blindly memorise them. He has helped me tremendously by providing me with his self compiled materials and clearing my doubts through extra Zoom meetings nearing my A level examinations. Thank you for helping me achieve my A during the A level examination!;)
Mr Jacky Wong’s dynamic approach to teaching motivates and engages students in productive discussions concerning the study of Chemistry. He is able to blend serious insight and solid study into a form that is exciting, interesting, and comprehensive. He is unparalleled as an educator, challenging conventional teaching methods, to promote a mix of independent research and active discussions. Not only does this maximise students’ learning in a classroom, but also broadens their horizons on the understanding of Chemistry. Under the pupillage of Mr Jacky Wong, I recognised first-hand the value of this approach, having been able to appreciate complex nature of the subject and ultimately excel in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme.

Mr Jacky Wong is a caring teacher who has always prioritised the needs of his students. Passionate, intelligent and committed, he was more than willing to go the extra mile and take time outside of lessons to ensure that I fully understood my concepts. As a very knowledgeable teacher, he conducts his lessons in a clear and focused manner that is easy to understand. His lessons are well planned and always kept interesting and captivating. Under his guidance, I clinched a 7 for IB HL Chemistry. Thank you Mr Wong!

As a caring and understanding tutor, Mr Wong cleared my doubts on Chemistry and managed to help me improve on my grades significantly in a short span of only 5 lessons before my examination (from S to B)!. The past year practices he gave were essential in gaining greater exposure to the different questions and answering techniques. Mr Wong was patient and knowledgeable and answered my questions effectively even though those questions were basic.

Mr Wong is a knowledgeable teacher who is able to explain advanced concepts simply, making them easier to understand and remember. He also has a wealth of materials for practice, which includes his self-compiled chemistry prelim questions and A level questions. Tuition sessions with him are interesting and helpful, and have definitely enabled me to be better prepared for my exams scoring an A! Thank you, Mr Wong!
Mr Wong is very patient and takes time to clarify concepts whenever I had doubts. He also provided self-devised practices that targeted my weak topics. He provided answering techniques that helped greatly, allowing me to improve from a B to an A!
I have never passed any of my school exam except the first one. I was never able to grasp Chemistry as it was taught in school. Mr Wong was able to clarify all of my doubts and made Chemistry simple for me to understand. He is very structured with his lesson plans and is on task. Moreover, he uses examples to illustrate key concepts, pointers for e.g. common mistakes, highlighted misconceptions and introduced tricky exam questions. Through these practices, I gained more confidence. I engaged Mr Wong’s service in August in J2. I sat for the GCE A exam in November and obtained a B – not a big deal for most people but to me, it was a feat. Mr Wong was able to help me achieve what I thought was impossible 3 months ago. Thank you, Mr Wong 🙂
My tuition experience with Mr Wong had been very enriching. Through the lessons, I managed to clear my doubts regarding Chemistry concepts. Mr Wong was a very patient teacher as he was always willing to explain the concepts repeatedly till we could understand them. I am thankful that he was very willing to arrive earlier or stay back after lessons, just so that we could have consultations with him to clear our doubts. The class atmosphere was also very conducive for learning as we were given time to discuss questions with our peers, thus encouraging a two-way learning attitude.
Despite my slower learning pace, Mr Jacky Wong was patient in teaching me the various concepts. Many concepts were taught in a simple but precise manner that made learning easy and fun which allowed me to gain more interest in the subject and eventually do well in it.

Even though I had excelled in chemistry back in secondary school, I found myself struggling to understand the new chemistry concepts and topics within the first few months of JC. It didn’t help that lectures and tutorials were so fast paced that I could hardly keep up. Hence, I decided to enrol in chemistry tuition in J1. I was lucky I did, as it really helped me to get back on track. Mr Wong is an extremely patient teacher who will go to great lengths to help his students to understand the concepts, even if they are not necessarily tested in the syllabus. He would explain things to great depth, unlike school teachers who would not simply because it is not tested, and this helped me to understand concepts, rather than blindly memorise. He was always happy to answer my many questions, be it in person or over whatsapp or email. Thanks to his guidance, I was able to eventually excel in chemistry and achieve A at the A levels. Thank you Mr Wong!
