I joined TSA in Sec 4 because I was failing chemistry quite badly. I didn’t really like the subject and I didn’t understand most of the content. After going for extra lessons, learning some shortcuts and practicing some questions, I started to understand chemistry a lot better and the subject has become a lot less tiring to study. Mr Yu is very efficient and thorough when going through questions. He goes through each question in-depth, and teaches us how to answer questions properly. He also draws pictures and uses many different colours to write on the whiteboard, which helps me draw connections and understand what he’s saying and writing better. Although going through content can get tiring, I don’t dread coming for chemistry tuition as Mr Yu makes lessons enjoyable by telling us jokes, stories and random facts, which don’t have anything to do with chemistry. However, I really like listening to his stories and jokes because they’re entertaining and not part of the syllabus. This gives me a break from listening to chemistry, and it allows me to be more focused when he gets back to teaching. Coming to TSA has helped me understand chemistry more and I enjoy coming for lessons here.
