Student’s Testimonials

“His teaching style is very engaging and he clearly explains the various concepts required to understand each topic. Furthermore, Mr. Tan is a very friendly and approachable person who can help me even in my future university course selection, on top of the strong support he gives with his chemistry knowledge.”


I came to know Mr Tan's tuition service from a friend of my mother and he also taught me for a month when I was a student at SAJC. His teaching style is very engaging and he clearly explains the various concepts required to understand each topic. Furthermore, Mr. Tan is a very friendly and approachable person who can help me even in my future university course selection, on top of the strong support he gives with his chemistry knowledge.

“As I interact with Mr. Tan more, I realise that he is a tutor who is not only dedicated to teaching but also humorous. When I considered dropping to H1 Chemistry, it was Mr. Tan who indirectly encouraged me (and the class) to remain in H2 and keep trying, which I am grateful for.”


I first come to know Mr. Julian Tan through my friends, who have recommended Mr. Tan’s tuition to me more than once.

As I interact with Mr. Tan more, I realise that he is a tutor who is not only dedicated to teaching but also humorous. Mr. Tan will usually go through the topical contents along with some of the popular or challenging questions of that topic. During the holidays and near major exams, Mr. Tan will go through the tested topics briefly while pointing out common concept gaps that many students have. Besides consultations after class, Mr. Tan also welcomes any chemistry questions on Whatsapp and he is easily contactable.

When I considered dropping to H1 Chemistry, it was Mr. Tan who indirectly encouraged me (and the class) to remain in H2 and keep trying, which I am grateful for. I hope that his future students would be able to overcome this hurdle called H2 Chemistry and also enjoy themselves in the process of learning during his tuition.

“I really enjoy Mr. Tan’s teaching style, he is always engaging and explains concepts clearly and makes them easy to understand. Mr. Tan is always ready to help students be it in class or through text which was extremely helpful approaching the A levels.”


His question packs always contain very good questions that highlight the points we must know whereas in school the teacher often goes through answers but they don’t highlight what is crucial. Mr. Tan teaches in a super engaging way so I don’t feel as sleepy as I do in school. I found out about Julian Chemistry through classmates that spoke highly of his lessons. I really enjoy Mr. Tan’s teaching style, he is always engaging and explains concepts clearly and makes them easy to understand. Mr. Tan is always ready to help students be it in class or through text which was extremely helpful approaching the A levels. I really hope Mr. Tan will continue to have students that appreciate him as much as I do. You won’t regret joining!

“But in this short period of less than a year, I have seen an exponential increase in confidence and enthusiasm for the subject, which no other school teacher has managed to achieve. He never fails to entertain countless questions whether through text or during class, and is very personal in his teaching, providing individual feedback to students of their strengths and weaknesses. He is very patient and encouraging even for small improvements, and his own love for Chemistry rubs off on us, despite it previously being my least favorite subject.”


I came to Mr. Tan arguably a bit late, after being introduced to his classes by a classmate. But in this short period of less than a year, I have seen an exponential increase in confidence and enthusiasm for the subject, which no other school teacher has managed to achieve. He is detailed in explaining concepts, making sure they are well-understood and gives many miraculous tips that give us an edge in solving problems better and faster. He never fails to entertain countless questions whether through text or during class, and is very personal in his teaching, providing individual feedback to students of their strengths and weaknesses. He is very patient and encouraging even for small improvements, and his own love for Chemistry rubs off on us, despite it previously being my least favorite subject. This gave me the motivation to work on it and spurred me on to be better each time, instead of avoiding it like the plaque. With his help, I overcame this inertia. my confidence and enjoyment of Chemistry grew and it showed in the work I did, culminating in the much coveted A grade in the A Levels.

Thank you, Mr Tan, for all your help and hard work, I cannot thank you more because you were my lifesaver

To other students, my advice would be to look for Mr Tan earlier because it is better to build a good foundation from the start than to fix a weak foundation in your last year (it is kind of a nightmare actually)

“Mr. Tan's energy in class and willingness to address queries outside of class make him stand out as a tutor. I wish all tutors can be like him.”


I was at the rock bottom of the entire cohort, keeping getting U grades during school assessments in my JC. If Mr. Julian Tan is able to lift me from the abyss up to the A grade for H2 Chemistry during A Levels, he would be able to lift anyone to the much coveted A grade, provided this person is receptive to his methods, which is not difficult to follow in all honesty. Mr. Tan's energy in class and willingness to address queries outside of class make him stand out as a tutor. I wish all tutors can be like him.

“Mr. Tan ’s notes are way more consolidated & more to-the-point. With Mr. Tan, I felt like he paid more attention to the key areas and helped us connect concepts and see relationships across topics so it didn’t feel like we were learning something completely foreign each time. Very importantly, I felt like his energy in class made me not dread Chemistry and in fact, come to enjoy it.”


Mr. Tan ’s notes are way more consolidated & more to-the-point. they also help me reorganize concepts & see how they relate, unlike school notes which make all topics seem detached & unrelated, making it hard for me to make connections. My friend who was Mr. Tan’s former student actually recommended him to me, seeing that I was really struggling with H2 chem. In school, teaching is so fast-paced and a lot of self-learning and understanding is expected. With Mr. Tan, I felt like he paid more attention to the key areas and helped us connect concepts and see relationships across topics so it didn’t feel like we were learning something completely foreign each time. He also focused on common mistake areas which were problems for me and really helped me realize, after a year, what I was constantly doing wrong. Very importantly, I felt like his energy in class made me not dread Chemistry and in fact, come to enjoy it. I also always had problems asking teachers questions but Mr. Tan encouraged me to ask questions and actually clarified them properly. I would really recommend Mr. Tan to juniors!

“He gave out really concise notes and many question packs for us to practice so that we would have a clear and deep understanding of each topic. I want to thank him for helping me find my passion for chemistry which lead me to do well in A levels.”


I started having lessons with Mr. Tan in the first year of my JC journey. I was not doing well for chem in school and decided to seek help from Mr. Tan as I heard of him from my friends who had significant improvements since being with him. He gave out really concise notes and many question packs for us to practice so that we would have a clear and deep understanding of each topic. When we have questions, he was also really patient in answering them making us comfortable in confiding with him. I want to thank him for helping me find my passion for chemistry which lead me to do well in A levels.

“I'm able to do well and become more consistent all thanks to your efforts, and now I've found myself being interested in further involving chemistry in my future life.”


I got to know Mr. Tan after my Senior in school introduced him to me. I joined his class as soon as H2 chemistry began in school in JC1, as it was the subject I was the most uncertain about. Mr. Tan teaches in a patient and steady manner. Throughout my JC journey, I've had many different tuitions, and I can safely say Mr. Tan is the one who teaches in the most tireless and consistent manner. Before attending Mr. Tan's class, I was very uncertain and worried about H2 Chemistry, as I consistently failed Chemistry during Secondary school. However, Mr. Tan was able to impart more chemistry knowledge to me through his lessons than what my school could in 6 whole years (my school is IP). Chemistry quickly changed from my weakest subject to the one I'm most confident and consistent in. I'm certain many other students taking up H2 Chemistry will be able to better master and appreciate the subject under the guidance of Mr. Tan. Thank you, Mr. Tan, it's really been a journey with you, being one of the earliest DHS students. I'm able to do well and become more consistent all thanks to your efforts, and now I've found myself being interested in further involving chemistry in my future life. Wish you all the best too :D
