Mr. Au Chee Ping
JC Chemistry Tutor, Learners’ Lodge
Mr Au Chee Ping graduated from the National University of Singapore (NUS) with a Bachelor of Engineering (Chemical) with Second Class Honours (Upper Division). When he was pursuing his undergraduate degree, Mr Au was also in the Talent Development Programme (now known as the University Scholars Programme), which was created to provide intellectual, leadership, and personal development for highly motivated and talented students at NUS.
Upon graduation, Mr Au worked as a Process Engineer in the chemical industry in an internationally well-known company. However, he discovered that his calling and gift is in leading and guiding young people, to develop their character and maximise their potential. Because of this, he gave up a promising career in the private sector and joined the Ministry of Education.
After receiving his Diploma in Education (with Merit) from the National Institute of Education (NIE), Mr Au served five years at Tampines Junior College (TPJC) where he taught H2 Chemistry. Before the new syllabus was introduced in 2006, Mr Au also taught Chemistry (Special Paper). Because he was able to integrate textbook knowledge with his industrial experience, it enabled him to understand and teach the subject at a much more interesting and deeper level, giving his students an edge over others in grasping important concepts.
During his service at TPJC, Mr Au was charged with leading a group of students to participate in the 29th Singapore Youth Science Fair, and through his effective guidance, the project entered the finals. On top of this, Mr Au also served as the Chief Internal Moderator for the Chemistry School-based Practical Assessment (SPA) in TPJC.
Since 2009, Mr Au has joined Learners’ Lodge Education Centre as a full-time staff, serving as an Education Specialist, teaching Chemistry classes at both JC1 and JC2 levels.
The JC Chemistry tutor in Learners’ Lodge made chemistry lessons really enjoyable with his witty and enthusiastic teaching style and it was through his lessons that I solidified my foundation and improved on my gaps of knowledge. He uses interesting examples and anecdotes which made it so much easier to understand the concepts. I’m grateful for his teachings, allowing me to secure an A for H2 Chemistry in the A levels.
There are two types of teachers, one who teaches their students what the syllabus dictates and the other, who go beyond the coursework to teach their students things that life dictates.
Thank you for being the latter. I have learned from your silence more than your talk since you are one of the few who talk less, and say more.

The tutor at Learners’ Lodge is incredibly dedicated and takes the time to explain Chemistry concepts to students patiently. He went out of his way to ensure I had extra notes and practices for my weaker topics, and was willing to schedule consultations when I needed them. I am very thankful to Learners’ Lodge for my A’s in A-Level Chemistry and would strongly encourage other A-level students to go for the lessons there too!
